  • Tiffany J (Sunday, January 10 16 04:10 pm EST)

    I am really embarassed to admit this and probably would have changed my story on here but its a crucial part of my review! today my 16 month old son and I were sitting in my car in the yard while I
    was cleaning it out. He was in the front seat playing with a toy and i shut the other door and went around to get him, not realizing somehow he locked the car. My baby was now locked in the car with
    the keys. I was hysterical and about to break the window and my husband called Darrells Locksmith to see how quickly he could arrive. He made it to our home in 15 minutes and even called on his way
    to update us on his whereabouts and ensure I was remaining calm. He flew out of the van and worked feverishly to get my baby out. He unlocked it immediatly and i grabbed my son hugging him tighter
    than ever. He didnt make me feel embarassed our ashamed (which i was anyway) he just wanted to make sure we were ok. He worked with an urgency as though it was his own child and his rate was much
    lower than we expected! I will forever be greatful to this skilled locksmith for rescuing my boy in record time!

  • Rich (Monday, December 21 15 12:55 pm EST)

    Darrell was prompt, personable and professional. He did a great job installing and re-keying all locks in my house, including glass sliders. Would recommend him to all!

  • Jerry Thomson (Thursday, December 17 15 10:28 am EST)

    Darrel saved us a service fee by taking the time to call us after we told him problem with our lock and give us a remedy.

  • Dr. Stephen Covert (Saturday, November 21 15 11:39 am EST)

    Kevin was prompt, courteous, knowledgeable, and expertly provided the work required! I highly recommend Darrell's Locksmith!

  • Eddie (Monday, September 07 15 07:03 pm EDT)

    Labor day and just going to get gas and pop into Walgreen's. Opps, forgot my cell phone. No problem-not going far. Twenty minutes later, errands taken care of and back to the apartment. What's this?
    Home inspecter van parked in the guest spot, and two men standing near my front porch. Wondering what's going on, I park and go through the routine of getting out of the car and pushing the lock
    button. Wait...did i turn off the car before locking it or did the home inspectors throw my routine off? My lights are on, the motors running and the cars locked. All my keys inside the car. One of
    the home inspectors called a locksmith his smart phone recommended. About a half hour here comes Darrell. A happy guy who makes you not feel so bad for being such a clutz. Darrell was there less than
    ten minutes, charged me less than a tankn of gas, and certainly improved my mood. Too make a long story longer, I would not hesitate to urge my friends to use Darrell's Locksmith for all your lock
    problems. My neighbor now has his business card...she was impressed also...

  • Joseph (Monday, August 10 15 12:28 pm EDT)

    businessman is around. Highly recommend!

  • Kathleen (Sunday, June 21 15 09:03 pm EDT)

  • Greg & Jackie Karazulas (Monday, April 20 15 05:15 pm EDT)

    Fast and professional service. We thought we needed all new locks in our vape shop on Siesta Drive, but Darrell showed us how to improve on what we had and re-key the existing locks and saved us a
    bunch of money. We highly recommend to our customers and anyone looking for an honest and professional locksmith! Thanks Darrell.

  • Bob and Judy Benfari (Saturday, October 11 14 08:25 pm EDT)

    Darrell took care of 2 key resets for us and took care of getting some old Baldwin locks to work. Offered good expert advise about replacing old Baldwin lock sets. Very pleasant and helpful! We
    called him because he has excellent reviews and he really knows his stuff. Very helpful and goes the extra mile to get everything to work the way it should. Would highly recommend. I know we will
    call Darrell again should we need locks installed or replaced. Price was very fair for the work he did. Glad we called him.

    Darrell was at my new house just 2 hours later. Same day service! Unheard of these days!
    Thank you, Darrell; I can rest easy now..

    him and would recommend his services.

  • McCuryds Comedy Theatre (Friday, June 06 14 07:48 pm EDT)

    Great Service. Friendly and professional

  • Cheri Williamson (Friday, June 06 14 02:19 pm EDT)

    I called Darrell. He was on his way to a job and would be passing by my house to get there. Said he'd stop in and take care of me "really quick". He arrived in maybe 5 minutes, did two re-keys and
    was gone in less than 10 minutes. That's got to be a service record. He was great and the price was right. Thanks!!!

  • Sue (Sunday, May 25 14 10:04 pm EDT)

    Would highly recommend Darrell. Showed up in 20 minutes on a holiday to get me into my home. He didn't overcharge like some other locksmiths were going to do. A nice, respectable, conscientious and
    capable locksmith. *****

  • Anonymous (Thursday, February 06 14 04:24 pm EST)

    I should have written this comment about a year ago am sorry it has taken so long. My wife and I were with our 2 year old shopping one day and my wife had to run back into the store while I was
    putting our daughter in her car seat. Long story short I locked her in the seat, got out of the car and accidentally locked the keys in the car with my daughter securely in her seat. Stayed calm and
    with Iphone in hand I found Darrell and he raced to my car and unlocked it in 20 minutes. I thnk the drive should have taken 40 mins ..luckly it was a cool and cloudy day. I Thanks Darrell everyday
    by making sure my keys are in hand when I close the door to the car. Thank You

Quality Excellent
great and fast service.very nice and cheaper than others in town. great guy.great experience !

Unbelievable proffessional service. My son broke our door handle and we drove around with it like that for about a year. I ran into Darryll and in a day he had a new handle ordered and put into my car. Asking my wife to do the Dukes of Hazzard and go through the window didnt go very far. Thanks Darryll. Call Darryll for anything lock or door related

I manage rental properties and Darrel has been responsive, professional and very trustworthy. If I'm in a jam- he's the man!

 susieg ‎ - Feb 21, 2012

Darrell's great and so nice! My front door was open in 10 minutes from the time I called! And that's a really great price! Thanks Darrell!

 Charles ‎ - Feb 10, 2012

I got a call from my wife saying that she could not get her cars ignition key to turn in the lock. We wanted a locally owned and operated business. So, I Googled Sarasota Locksmiths and Darrell's number came up. Darrell responded in a very timely manor and the problem was resolved.

 KBC :) ‎ - Jan 26, 2012

It was so hard to find an actual local locksmith online. Darrell and his wife are very nice! Came over on a Sunday to fix my broken door lock as well as tune up a few others and give me helpful advice. I would DEFINITELY recommend! :)

By Terry

 I highly recommend Darrell. I called him about installing a keyless lock on my front door. Before he even came to my home he did extensive research on what would work best. After coming by to look at my door, he ordered what I needed. He came to do the install and was neat and took his time. When he re-keyed my other doors, he tightened up the loose bolts etc left behind the last time we had our locks re-keyed. If you need a locksmith in Sarasota, don't waste your time or money with anyone else. Call Darrell, you won't be disappointed!

   Andrew ‎ - Nov 19, 2011

Got locked out of my house, and googled locksmiths. The first one that game back was showing an address right next door to me: So I walked next door and the address listed turned out to be abandoned office space. So I called the number listed, and the guy that answered the phone said he could be there in 40 minutes. I told him I was standing outside of his 'office' and that it was empty. I hung up on him and ended up getting in touch with Darrell. He said he would be there in 15 minutes, and was there in 10! Not only did he get me in my house, but also ran me to the ATM so I could pay him. Plus he did some preventative care on my locks as well for free. Cannot recommend him enough! Thanks Darrell!

 Darrell saved my husbands behind after he locked BOTH set's of keys in our new minivan. Darrell was out within 40 minutes. He is professional, courteous and very reasonably priced!
 If you need a locksmith, Darrell is your man!

by Jon
 Just had this man replace all the locks in my house.

Outstanding attention to detail. He replaced 6 different locks and would not stop working on anyone of them until he was satisfied that they were perfect.
He arrived when he said he would. He was professional and outstanding at his craft. He had everything thing that he needed in his truck to complete the 6 different locks that I had installed and left nothing undone.
I cannot give a higher review.

by Terri
 I would definitely recommend Darrell's Locksmith to anyone. He was very prompt and efficient and reasonable!

 Prompt, efficient, pleasant and reasonably priced.
