  • I would recommend this business

Technician came at promised time. He took a little longer because it was an old screened iron door to replace the knob that we already purchased at Home Depot. They just had to install. Rob was very thorough and experienced.

Would definitely recommend to friend or fam. They do on call until 10 pm but extra charge for calls after 5.30 pm.

Customer Testimonials

Just had Sean come and save the day!!!! I locked myself out of my condo. He came within half an hour and saved the day!!!! These guys are now on my list as preferred vendors!!! Highly recommend. While he was there he fixed a malfunctioning deadbolt too. Sean was professional and courteous and fast. He even made time to make keys for a neighbor.

Thanks so much!!! If u ever need a key replaced or made, they do it all! CINDY AND JERRY you guys were great! Never knew car keys were so expensive but busy bees saved me a lot!!

Very nice and friendly staff. My car alarm had a dead battery and screw was stripped. They were able to replace and reprogram my alarm in less than 20 minutes. Thank you for the fast service. Price was very reasonable.

Prompt, quick service, easy access, friendly & helpful staff, great communication before, during & after the appointment. Very solid, strong recommendation.

My key got stuck in the lock cylinder on my door on a Sunday. I called Busy Bees and they scheduled for Jerry to come out to my location in an hour. He showed up half an hour early, got the key out in two seconds, and only charged me for the service call (no labor). Super friendly and easy going. Would definitely recommend.

Thank you so much for sending Rob over today! Im speechless.
We had another Locksmith over a couple weeks ago who tried fixing something and replaced the key for a total of $200. After his ‘fix’ it got worse every day. One day we called him and he said that the cylinder needed to be replaced (around $300 + labor). And on another day he said that the door is the issue.

Rob came in and fixed it within half an hour or so and charged $75! Please give him a raise!
You guys are amazing!!!

Thank you so much for your fast and reliable service!!!

Stephanie at Busy Bees provided me excellent service today. I came in to get a copy of my car key, which provided a lot of issues in duplicating. She was very patient and stuck with it, making sure she got it just right. She had to go back to the machine multiple times to make sure the key worked smoothly in my very old car's door. Overall, it probably took her about 20 minutes to duplicate the key (due to the age and wear if the key). I think most people would've given up.

Awesome service!! Came in to have keys made for an old bank teller safe from old well used keys. I believe it was Cindy who assisted me and she was great!! Two different keys duplicated and she got them both the first time!! Helpful, pleasant and efficient service.

Highly recommend them!!!!

I live small business owners. This is a great little store and we're lucky to have them in Chula Vista. They were a great help with a family safe. They're mobile too - come right to your problem.

Before you move into your new house you should look to see that there is a deadbolt installed on all exterior doors. Most doors have door knobs with locks in them, but that really offers little protection from bumping, lock picking, or brute force. Having deadbolts installed in your doors makes breaking into your house difficult. A deadbolt is harder work for robbers. So most of the time, they will pass right by your house and look for an easier target instead. Youprobably do have a deadbolt on your front door, but do you have a door that goes from the garage to the outside?
