    Darrell's Locksmith is extremely timely, professional, and proficient. I would highly recommend their services to anyone in the Sarasota, Osprey, or Venice, FL area!

  • Ralph Burton (Tuesday, February 19 19 04:34 pm EST)

    Darrell came to my house in Lakewood Ranch the same day I called and repaired my front door keyless entry lock and deadbolt in under an hour. He had all the parts he needed in his Office/Truck which is impressive.I HIGHLY recommend Darrell. FIVE STAR SERVICE.

  • Chanda Wall (Tuesday, February 05 19 05:11 pm EST)

    Very impressed with the lock change service I received. I was in a panic after losing my office keys and he came right away and changed the locks. Price was great, no added fee for “emergency” call. Highly recommend!

  • Barbara C (Thursday, December 13 18 09:53 am EST)

    Great job removing a locked trailer hitch on my car. Prompt service by owner on Siesta Key. Honest, highly knowledgeable, extremely fair price. Would recommend to all and would definitely use again.

  • Pat (Saturday, October 13 18 04:48 pm EDT)

    Darrell gave me a quote and a time for service, both were exact. He's friendly, professional, and fast. I would definitely use his company again.

  • Cindy Grovatt (Tuesday, September 18 18 10:34 pm EDT)

    Darrell & his assistant Harry were very helpful & curtious. They worked hard to fix my slider lock & installed an Apple controlled Shledge smart lock. He worked tirelessly to get the lock installed. I had a faulty modem and he didn’t get upset, but pateintly waited until I was able to pick up the new modem, work with the cable company & get it working. He followed up and made sure my lock was working. His rates are competitive and his services are professional & expert. If you need a locksmith this is the guy to call.

  • John OBrien (Saturday, July 28 18 07:41 am EDT)

    Very quick response, Personable and professional. I waited a few months to write a review as we had a key less entry door door nob installed and never used one before. It works flawless.Will be using them in the future.

  • Scott (Friday, July 27 18 12:03 pm EDT)

  • LisaBeth (Sunday, June 10 18 09:12 am EDT)

  • .patrick (Thursday, May 31 18 03:45 pm EDT)

  • Sue DuQuette (Monday, May 28 18 10:17 pm EDT)

    Darrell is amazing. I had called five companies Saturday night memorial day weekend, no one answered, or no one available! I'd locked my keys in the car and needed help. He was the only one to respond, and for that I am truly grateful!!

  • Sue DuQuette (Monday, May 28 18 10:12 pm EDT)

    Saturday night - memorial day weekend I did the unthinkable! Lock my keys, cell, and purse in my car. I'm at a business/residence, so I don't panic. Until, after five phone calls nobody's available. I don't know where my extra key is, so I can't have somebody drive me to my house to resolve my situation. Finally somebody answers, and it's Darrell! He's busy for a little while, rekey job.. refers me to a couple of people, call him back if I cannot get somebody else sooner. I wait and hour and a half I call him back. Needless to say he came out, unlocked my car and all was well. Very grateful to him as he was the only one out of six places to respond.

  • Gary C. (Monday, May 21 18 04:29 am EDT)

    Called Darrell at 8:00 pm when my safe would not open. Darrell arrived within 15 minutes of calling and was able to open the safe in about the same amount of time and without DAMAGE
    He was very professional and a nice guy. His price was also very reasonable as I had called several Locksmiths for estimates. Darrell will be the only locksmith that I will be using in the future.

  • Hannah (Tuesday, May 15 18 07:41 pm EDT)

    Darrell saved the day! My Airbnb guests got locked out of their room. Darrell arrived within 15 minutes of my call (7 pm), had the door unlocked and the lock repaired within minutes. And, his service is very affordable. Darrell Locksmith rocks!

  • Valorie Hayes (Saturday, May 12 18 03:28 pm EDT)

    Darrell was recently at my home to replace all of the old locks. I was impressed by several things. He always answered the phone, made making an appointment painless, arrived on time, called to let me know he was arriving, and had all the parts he needed.
    He is professional and polite. I would highly recommend him

  • Jeff Filippi (Wednesday, May 09 18 07:34 pm EDT)

    second door(Key to door inside RV) and took the problematic lock apart and immediately fixed the problem. He was very knowledgeable, professional and a very nice person. I recommend him to any and

  • 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)

    Darrell's Locksmith Service is terrific! We called on a Sunday night and within 30 minutes Darrell arrived and in no time solved our problem! His service is extremely professional, prompt, and

  • 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.

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

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!

 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.
