Rachel M reviewed 10/11/12 3 weeks ago

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

    Darryl is great. Second time I used him. Installed Schlage lock on front door and new pin pad lock on owners closet. Put me on the schedule and was there prior to me! He’s very reliable and does a great job !!

  • Vernon hepper (Monday, August 16 21 02:06 pm EDT)

  • Barbara (Wednesday, March 24 21 08:04 am EDT)

    March 2021
    So thankful, I called Darrell’s Locksmith.
    A bathroom door would not open because of a dead bolt mechanism as I understood it/rod that went up into doorframe would not drop.
    Darrell was prompt & arrived at the time promised.
    What seemed impossible & might have resulted in calling the door company to arrive & cut out the door turned into a true miracle
    Darrell attempted repeatedly & in that moment for whatever reason the door opened
    Can not explain the relief felt in that moment knowing that I would not face the expense or mess of having that door literally cut out to gain entry.
    Most appreciative & thankful.
    Experience in addressing all types of issues ended well.
    Happy customer.

  • Linda T (Sunday, February 21 21 12:27 pm EST)

    Darrell changed all the locks on my doors, fantastic, quick and efficient. Would highly recommend. Personable, professional and pricing was very reasonable.

    Very reasonable pricing.

  • Johanna Rehmani (Monday, November 23 20 01:28 pm EST)

    Darrell, at Darrell's Locksmith Service blew me away! Darrell's knowledge on locks, fixing them and being super prompt, is over the top. His passion for the trade in fixing locks and to do it right is over the top, A +++++ !!! I am fortunate to have Darrell as a trusted locksmith!!

  • Danielle Miller (Thursday, July 23 20 10:42 pm EDT)

    We were locked out of our vacation home and gave Darrell a call. He was here within 10 minutes and had the door unlocked in under 2 minutes!! He was very professional and funny! Price was very reasonable!!

  • Rob (Monday, July 06 20 08:14 pm EDT)

    I manage a few rental homes in Sarasota. When it comes time to change locks, I turn to Darrell for quick quality service.

  • Teri (Wednesday, July 01 20 05:51 pm EDT)

    Darrell came out quickly & did what we asked. Down to earth, & a genuinely nice guy. Highly recommend!!!

  • Dave and Jody Hines (Monday, March 30 20 06:06 pm EDT)

    Darrell and Harry were very professional and did an excellent job installing a Schlage front door handle and keypad lock on our front door as well as a Google NestHello doorbell and a Nest X Yale lock for us. Everything works perfectly and the installation cost was very reasonable. We are very happy with their work.

  • Sue (Sunday, March 15 20 08:57 am EDT)

    Darrell came to my condo in Lakewood Ranch to set up new locks for my new condo. He was knowledgeable and even though my doors were not average in the way they were originally made and therefore challenging to fit with new locks and deadbolts Darrell stayed on the job. He put in a lot of extra time and a trip to Lowe’s to buy a new lock. Because he’s been working for 30 years he was able to come up with solutions that work. That’s why I called a professional. It’s not a DIY project if you want the best lock and deterrent available.

  • Millie (Thursday, February 20 20 01:38 pm EST)

    I needed a change of locks asap- called Darrells Locksmith and was not disappointed-- he was there within an hour of my call-- the cost was a service charge witch was very reasonable and six keys for my door-- Darrell was prompt ,professional made the experience a pleasant one--- he will be the one I call whenever I need new keys--

  • Lisa Keith (Tuesday, February 04 20 08:07 pm EST)

    Best locksmith EVER! I unfortunately have a habit of locking my keys in my car and Darrell is ALWAYS SO PROMPT AND COURTEOUS!

  • Dominique Forbes (Monday, January 13 20 09:33 am EST)

    Great service! Darrell arrived at our home within 15 - 20 minutes to assist with a next to IMPOSSIBLE lock. If your locked out of your house, Darrell is the guy to call!!

  • Christine Theros (Monday, October 21 19 10:47 am EDT)

    Darrell and Harry, were great, very friendly and professional.

  • Jared (Tuesday, October 15 19 08:32 am EDT)

    Holy moly, batman! Locked out of my car and after calling 3 very impersonal locksmiths without any time frame or name of a person, I called Darrell! He called me en route to ensure he was on the way!
    Making a stressful situation light hearted, his cheery demeanour made things easy from calling to in-my-car in 20 minutes.
    I only WISH I had his card at 2 am but now it will never leave my wallet!

  • Jennifer Funiciello (Thursday, September 12 19 02:10 pm EDT)

    Darrell came to Lido Key for work on my house and was prompt, curious and his pricing was very reasonable! I highly recommend him

    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)

    Awesome service and quick response time when locked keys in the truck. Could have walked away after car security system kept preventing the truck from opening, but persevered and got the job done. Great thanks and much appreciate your help.

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

    Quick response and he was able to use the master key for my Jeep to get in. And it only cost me $40. I am so relieved. Thank you

  • Lisa (Tuesday, June 05 18 09:17 pm EDT)

    Darrell was able to get me back inside my condo. He is polite, fair and professional. Highly recommend!

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

    darrell is the best locksmith i have ever used was at my house and unlocked my truck in 5 minutes great job darrell

  • 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

Prompt, VERY EFFICIENT, friendly, and well priced.  I was pleasantly surprised that he also accepts credit cards on site, he simply swiped it on his cell phone, no messing with cash!

 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!

 Fantastic service! I called him on Sunday at 12:30 pm and he arrived at 2:00, changed all 5 locks in under an hour. Fantastic service and nice guy. Will use him again in the future!

 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.
