Questions and Answers

  • What we may not know about you?
The Flying Locksmiths is a 3rd generation owned family business. It has maintained family values while staying atop the changes in the security industry.
  • What is important to know about your profession?
Locksmiths have gotten a bad reputation in the past ten years due to organized criminals invading the space, particularly exploiting individuals in vulnerable situations (being locked out of home or car).I wish customers to know that there are hundreds of noble and honest locksmiths out there and with due diligence you should be able to find one that will deliver you excellent service at an honest price.
  • What do you recommend to know before hiring you?
Photos are always helpful for us to help assist a customer diagnosis a problem and present the best solution.

In locksmithing there is no job that is "common." Each customer situation we encounter is unique and with our experienced technicians we provide solutions appropriate to each customer.
  • How can we save money hiring you?
If you want to save money do your research. We encourage customers to take a long view on their expenses. An inexpensive service provider may cost you less now, but will have you pay more in time and cost in the long run.
  • How did you get started?
The Flying Locksmiths started in 1946. After 70 successful years in Boston, the Flying Locksmiths decided to go national in 2015. We anticipate having 50 locations open by the end of 2016.

Since our projects range in size from big to small we find ourselves completing a handful of projects every month.

After the work is complete we follow-up to make sure you are happy with the service. We are available by phone 24/7 with a live voice ready to address any concerns.
  • What kind of questions do customers ask you?
The most frequent question we get from customers is "cool name, where did it come from?" The name came from the original founder, a WWII veteran who while started a lock shop was also training to become a pilot. He combined his two passions to produce the name "The Flying Locksmiths"
  • What are you most proud of?
We value each of our customers and projects of all shapes and sizes. We recently had a customer with 30 locations that needed safes delivered and installed. We successfully coordinated the delivery and installation of the safes to store locations.
