Customers Reviews

One day, not so long ago, a customer called me due to two remotes to be programmed for two different car manufacturers. Here to what he has to say:

Business lock repair in San Fransico, CA – Rob A.

“I got locked out of my office in San Francisco today and found Buddy’s locksmith pro lock on the internet. First of all, I checked that he is an insured locksmith, then I asked the guy to fix my front door lock, another two locks, and open on an old lock that I got from my father. Great service! They came in less than 10 minutes. I will definitely be using them again.”

Locked out of my business in San Ramon, CA – Jonah S.

A year ago (2020), I was locked out of my business in San Ramon, CA, and the lockout from Buddy’s Locksmith Pro Lock made it a lot easier. The lockout pro was really friendly and had an awesome attitude that made me feel a lot better about the lockout. I don’t wish you to be locked out, but… I recommend everyone to get lockout services from here because they’re one of the best lockouts I’ve ever dealt with. Thank you!

About San Francisco

“I remember the day my family and I first arrived here. It had been years since we left NYC. My parents were real estate agents for a while before Covid-19 broke out, and they had to escape with my brother and me to save our lives. But on that day, all of that seemed like such a distant memory—I was finally home.

San Francisco is one of the most beautiful cities in the world. I love living here because this place has everything you need, connected to all the best parts of America; San Francisco is a city for everyone. There are so many fantastic tourist attractions in San Francisco, but there are even more hidden gems if you know where to look.

And with all these great things to do, you’ll never be bored. All of San Francisco’s beauty offers something for everyone – whether that’s food, entertainment, or just an opportunity to relax. So come out and explore what San Francisco has to offer!

A little bit about me: I didn’t start a year ago. I love to deal with cars. Since childhood, I’m played with cars, dreamed about cars, and fantasized about luxury cars. But the most important for me is our customer care and satisfaction. Come as a customer and end up as a friend and a part of Buddy’s Locksmith family.
