Great service. They sent someone out within minutes of calling. After explaining the my odd situation of a stuck security lock in a retrofitted hotel door, the tech climbed through spiky bushes, popped the security lock out, and was on his way.

I recently called Tal-Niv Locksmith Services and they were fantastic. He got to me very fast and fixed my problem in under 20 min. Tal was very professional and very friendly.He knew his stuff, his van is trick loaded with everything a locksmith could possibly need to complete a job. I was also very pleased with how reasonable the price was.It's hard to find people who are straight-up honest these days, but Tal-Niv Locksmith Services is the real deal. I'd tell anyone who needs a reliable and skilled locksmith to check them out. They're good at what they do, they're friendly, and they won't rip you off.

Lost my 2017 Hyundai Sonata hybrid key fob; I was prepared for a total nightmare of a day, until Tal rolls up 15 min. after I called, and within a half hour I had a brand new fob in hand, and he even cut me a spare, all at less than the dealership and none of the suffering.

I lost my car key. I wanted to buy a new lock key but the price was too high, so I didn't buy a new lock key. I called this company and they are a locksmith. He was very efficient and discreet and had my car locked and keyed in no time. His salary was not very high. I was very happy with his service. I will call him again if I have such a problem in the future. Thank you all

I called 2 other places before finding these guys, they had the best price and guaranteed they would be able to do it. The best part is they gave us the exact price over the phone for our car key and there were no surprises. Shane showed up on time and worked quickly. Key has been working great for weeks now. Thanks!

Tal was incredible to work with! I found myself in a pickle when I lost my car keys the day before a work conference. My Mitsubishi is an older model and not the easiest car to deal with due to a semi-broken lock yet Tal was patient and made sure he cut a key that worked so I can safely drive. Highly recommend!

I am very pleased with Tal Niv. Our only key was lost to our 2011 Toyota 4-runner on a weekend. Tal Niv came out on a Sunday evening, was able to unlock the car, create a key without a key to copy, and have us on our way quickly. I highly recommend his services. Prompt, professional and efficient!
I highly recommend Tal-Niv Locksmith Services. I lost my car rental key and they promptly came out to Novato and resolved the issue. I would have been charged for an extra day if I couldn’t produce the car so I am immensely grateful that they were able to help.I definitely plan to use them again.

I called Tal-Niv Locksmith Services, left a voicemail, and got a call back in 10 minutes. The locksmith was at my office 15 minutes later to re-key three doors. He did great work and was done in 30 minutes. He also answered all of my questions about further securing my space. Excellent customer service!!I have been using another local locksmith for years, but they were scheduled out for a week. I just found my go-to company for locks and keys. Thanks!

Tal-Niv Locksmith Services came on short notice after I broke my car key, and he got me a new key cut and programmed with a spare in no time. Even with running into a problem on the car's computer caused by the last time I had the car worked on. He was able to get it sorted. The best auto locksmith very quick, professional, and positive attitude. I can't recommend him enough.

Tal is actually local to Marin unlike the "local locksmith" results that pop up when you google a locksmith. After waiting 50 minutes from a "local" locksmith who said he was 30 minutes away, I called them back to find out they were now 24 minutes away. I found Tal who said his technician would be here in 20 minutes and even after hours, he arrived in exactly 20 minutes. Their service is incredible, they are extremely professional and I can't thank them enough. Save yourself the frustration and call Tal first.The other locksmith service called me 1 hour after Tal arrived to ask whether their guy showed up yet which tells you all you need to know about those afterhours services.

I needed some keys made and Tal-Niv Locksmith Services is AMAZING. Very friendly and knowledgeable staff. attentive too! They also do certain car keys and will ensure the key works before they charge you. Our ""key guy"" made copies quickly and effectively. They also told us to bring back the key they made if it doesn’t work for any reason. They are one of the best 24 hour locksmiths in San Rafael.I’m going to come back here anytime I need keys, which isn’t often, but still. I had a great experience.

From the initial communication to the final sign-off, Tal-Niv Locksmith Services was great to work with. Of the half a dozen or so locksmiths I contacted, he was the only one to answer my questions completely and concisely. The locksmith did a fabulous job re-keying my client's entire house, and I would use him again in a heartbeat! Thank you!

I have been using Tal-Niv Locksmith Services for about 4 years. It is really easy to get a duplicate key made in a few minutes at any of their kiosks. I recently copied my house keys after a move, and they worked on the locks they were supposed to. The keys are saved for future use, which I have already used and found very convenient. I highly recommend using this locksmith service.

Tal-Niv Locksmith Services was pricey, but super convenient. I couldn't make it to a real store within store hours, so this was a great solution for me. It was pretty quick, no longer than a key store. They have a great selection of designs if you can wait 3–4 days for shipping. They have standard blanks (and a few designs) in the machine if you need one right away. I highly recommend them for auto locksmith services.

Tal-Niv definitely deserves five stars. I was at my wits end trying to get a remote fob key replacement for my Subaru Crosstrek. The dealer wanted $450.00, several days turn around, and a future appointment to program it. The store front locksmith couldn't do it. So glad I found Tal-Niv through the internet! With a reasonable price, fast turn around, and a fob that works my day ended well. Highly recommend!

Really nice guy and he knows his stuff! I went to his shop with my Toyota wanting to get a new valet key made. He was super fast and nice. Tal cut the key and programmed it while I waited - maybe it took 20 minutes total from the time I walked into the shop to the time I drove away and he made 3 keys for me 2 of which he had to program. I highly recommend him!

BEWARE!!!i called this locksmith company to repair the lock in an office door. On the phone, the locksmith told me the cost would be a $75. service charge plus labor and materials. After 45 minutes, the locksmith repaired the lock. He then presented his bill. It was $516.00! I asked for a breakdown. He said there was a $75. TRAVEL FEE PLUS a $300.00 SERVICE FEE plus labor and materials. The locksmith told me $80. an hour after he had finished the job, then in five minutes raised it to $100. an hour! I pointed out that NO ONE had mentioned a $300. service fee on the phone, and that if they had, I would NOT have agreed to have that locksmith do the work! So that was DISHONEST. I asked for his license number as a locksmith, he said his boss had it but he didnt. But then he said the license number was on a business card in his car. I asked him to get it. BEFORE he went to get it, he IMMEDIATELY offered to drop the $300. service charge. He did NOT give me the license number.You need to get a WRITTEN ESTIMATE from this company before they do any work!!!
