  • I would recommend this business

The owner, Doug, came out the same morning to my home to repair my ignition in my car! My key was not able to turn the ignition in any way all of a sudden and he was able to make it work for me and save the time and money from typically having to order a whole new ignition and housing. He was on time and professional and reasonable on his fees. I'll definitely recommend his services and call him if I ever require locksmith services again.

Fast and friendly service! They took the time to look around for my keys before they started making a new one for me. There was an employee in training and I heard the senior member of the team explain that they would get a lot of calls on Mondays because people thought they would charge more on weekends or holidays. "We don't do that!" he told her. "We never have, and we never will!" Thank you, 1 Able. You did a great job, and didn't even make me feel stupid for losing my keys!

Customer Testimonials

My kids got locked in the car from the autolock feature and they came very quickly to save the day! Fantastic service from honest people. I will be using them for future locksmith needs.

Great service... i called this morning they gave the best price, i asked if i can have someone come out to me, they said yes they will have a tech out in about 25mins.. by time we got off the phone a tech was at my house in 10mins.. she was friendly and fast on opening my truck door!!! I will be saving 1 able locksmith number, and passing it on to someone ever in need for a good fast friendly locksmith .. and doesnt charge a arm and leg for it either!!! Thank you for saving my day!!

I have used 1 Able Locksmith to assist in accessing & re-keying foreclosure homes for many years. I ALWAYS call upon and refer their services to others. I wouldn't consider using any other. They are extremely punctual, affordable, quick & knowledgeable.
Thank you for all of your help over the years.

Very professional. Got what I paid for very nice family have dealt with multiple locksmiths from them.

We believe in old fashioned values. We live here in Citrus county, our kids went to school here. Our customers are our neighbors and deserve to be treated fairly at an honest price. We believe that a company that provides a service to someone in an emergency situation should not take advantage of that person by overcharging for that service. We treat our customers the way we would like to be treated. We incorporate this simple principle into everything we do. Community service has always been an important aspect of our family life and it is at the heart of our business as well.

The security of our customers is our top priority. When you find yourself locked out of your vehicle, please remember to check your surroundings closely to insure your safety. Although the crime rates here in Citrus County are low, crime still exists and it's important to be aware of your surroundings when you're locked out of your car or truck. The bad guys will see and take advantage of your emergency. We strive to reach you within 30 minutes or less once you place a call to us. That means that Inverness, Crystal River, Lecanto, Floral City, Hernando, Homosassa, Beverly Hills, Dunnellon, Citrus Springs, Citrus Hills and even Ocala in Marion County are all in that 30 minute response time.
