After Trying Most of the Other Locksmiths in Town You Just Got All of My Business

Contrary to what others have said, for the price of an actual locksmith to cut a key, Dial Locksmith/SafeWorld® is one of the cheaper in Edmonton: not compared to Home Depot or Lowes of course. However, their expertise and proper equipment has always made sure I got the exact lock, exact key or the exact product I needed. When I needed to replace a cheap dollar store lock with a better tubular lock, Dial had the right product for less money than the competition. When I needed a part of a cabinet door lock, Leslie at Dial had the experience to know exactly what I was looking for. You don't get that kind of journeyman locksmith experience and knowledge from a clerk at the home store no matter how much the home store employee wants to help you. Thank you Leslie; after trying most of the other locksmiths in town, you just got all of my business.

Would Definitely Recommend This Locksmith

I bought two Honda transponder keys off eBay hoping to find a locksmith in Edmonton that would be able to cut and program them. After calling around, Dial quoted me $20 for cut and program for each key. Both keys worked flawlessly, and the service was helpful and friendly. Would definitely recommend this locksmith! I paid $26.50 per key for cost of key, cut and programming after all was said and done. Considering Honda wants $50 just for the key, save yourself some money and buy off eBay and take to these guys. Will definitely be going to them in the future for my locksmith needs!
