Great question! Joe East Enterprises is our parent company and our Better Business Bureau listing is under that name. We operate three major branches of Joe East Enterprises: A-1 Locksmith, A-1 Safes & A-1 Security Group. If you scroll down on our BBB page you will see these names listed under the DBA section. We know this is a little confusing but we had to follow the rules the BBB set for us! :)
We can easily make a new key for you, even if you lost your old one. All you will need to provide for us is the year, make and model and you will need to provide a photo ID and insurance for the vehicle.
We can easily send one of our professional locksmiths to you to program and cut your key saving you the time and money to have your vehicle towed. If you want to bring your vehicle to one of our retail locations to have a key made there then you would need to tow your car there if you had lost your keys. You tell us what you want and we will work with you.
The time it takes will vary depending on your vehicle and if we are making a copy or making a brand new key from scratch. Other factors include what kind of car key you need. The best thing to do is call us and give your details to one of our representatives. If we know all the variables we should be able to give you an accurate time estimate.
Yes we can.
We are more than happy to cut and program your auto key even if you didn't buy it from us, but we cannot guarantee the key will work if it was not purchased from us. We use the same keys as auto makers that are made from high quality parts that virtually never fail, that is why we can guarantee the programming when you buy a key from us. Unfortunately if you buy a key somewhere else we cannot guarantee the quality of the key so our normal lifetime programming warranty is voided. We can still cut and program the key, but if it looses it's programming which happens with cheap third party keys then you would need to pay to have the key programmed again.

While you don't have to do this, bolting your safe to the floor eliminates the ability for thieves to tip your safe on it's side. This reveals weaker points under the safe and makes it much easier for crooks to cut open your safe and steal it's contents.
Nearly every kind!
