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.

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.

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!!!

This is our second time using good news, first time we were missing a key to a car trunk. He showed up early and made a new key, works great! Second time the key ignition in my car wouldn't work, needed a new key and ignition needed to be rebuilt, he rebuilt it and made a new key in just over an hour. He's very friendly and personable. Would've cost $200 more at the dealership. We highly recommend Good News Lock and Key!
