Our Story

I first became interested in Locksmithing at 8 years old when I saw an ad for a Foley-Belsaw correspondence course on the back of a matchbook … yes, that long ago! In the meantime, I spent about 20 years as an auto tech at various dealers with the specialty of diagnostics and “tough cases”. Fast forward a bunch of years and I found myself employed at a State University and became friends with the locksmith; the next year I completed the Foley-Belsay course. I was a very non-specialized locksmith, working my small business on the side and doing re-keys, NSP jobs and whatever came along. During this, I spent most of my time taking free manufacturers classes through Yankee, Assa-Abloy, Schlage, etc. getting a very firm locksmith foundation.

About eight years ago I noticed that there were no automotive locksmiths even close to my area, so I started to dabble in the specialty; I started out with VATS and keys that didn’t need a programmer to complete, and worked my way up with programmers and high-security capabilities. At this time I still enjoy a good diagnostic challenge and I am specializing in VW, Audi, and BMW.

Coach Sean
I needed a key and fob for a truck I just bought. They were able to order both in a couple of days. We set up a time to meet and Jeff was there early. He had everything programmed in about 1/2 hour and we were off and running. Good price also.
william cassity
Great experience. Programmed new keys for my truck. Would use again.
steven arsenault sr
Jeff did an excellent job with programming my key pod for a 2014 Ford focus T. Had other locksmiths trying this task with all having issues. He did within 1/2 hour and with no problems. Charges were very reasonable and highly recommended him.
Response from the owner: Thank you for the kind words, it was our pleasure

Excellent Service
Janice Eagan
Outstanding service! Cindy and Jeff were friendly and helpful. Jeff was punctual for our set appointment and quickly diagnosed the ignition lock cylinder problem on my RV. I highly recommend Good News for your automotive key issues.
DJ Jammin Jim Lawton
Great job on cutting my key.
I purchased a new smart key for my Jaguar XK on Ebay which turned out to be defective. Jeff did his best and was kind enough not to charge for his service. No car dealership would do that. Lesson learned, don't buy key fobs online even if it seems like a good deal. Would do business with him again.
Response from the owner: Thank you for your kind words, I'm sorry that it didn't work out ...

While working on my classic Pontiac I misplaced the keys. I called around, but it seemed that the only person who could help me was Jeff. He came out, worked in the rain for an hour, and got me back in the car. I am super satisfied with this service, and would highly recommend Good News to anyone having car key issues.
Response from the owner: Thank you, it was a pleasure working on your Classic ...

Jeff was not only on time he was early. He drove to Moodus from Ledgard and had a solution for my key problems. I have hired this company before and I received the same excellent service. Look no further for a lock and key guy you have found him right here. Thank you JeffLambs tree serviceGlen Lamb

Stephanie Cona
Recently, I needed a spare key made for my 2015 Yamaha fz07. I called to inquire about pricing and availability to get a duplicate key made. They scheduled an appointment based on my availability and quoted me extremely affordable price.The key duplicating process took 5 minutes, they verified the spare worked in every aspect of my bike, and the gentleman was friendly. 5/5 I will use them for all of my future locksmithing needs.
Response from the owner: It was a pleasure to serve you!
Mr Lock Magic Locksmith
Great locksmith and even better person. Jeff has helped me quite a few times and he's your go to man should you need a locksmith.
Response from the owner: Thank you!
Brian Jermainne
Jeff was awesome! I needed a spare Tibbe key cut for Ford Transit Connect. The Ford dealership couldn't get me a key! Jeff to the rescue. Great service from first phone call, to prompt arrival, to fast service, to better price than Ford dealership (who couldn't even figure out how to get a key but if they did it would be $300 minimum.) Very friendly and personable. Not sure I'll need a locksmith again, but if I do, Good News Lock and Key are the only people I will call. Highly Recommend!!!
Response from the owner: Thanks Brian, I really appreciate you taking the time to write this.
