Zach has successfully rebuilt a Kaba Simplex code locks for one of our longtime customers. This lock has been in continuous heavy traffic use for over 6 years! This long life was due to the quality installation and maintenance provided by Atlanta locksmith Abbot Safe & Lock. Never the less, time does take it’s toll. Zach was able to replace some key components of the entire assembly, bring the lock back up to new condition, and save the customer about $400.00! That’s a winning deal in any book! So if you need code locks, or any type of lock, call Abbot Safe & Lock for superior locksmith service!

Respect

Posted in Uncategorized by Administrator on the August 20th, 2012

Respect. That’s a nice word. It is also a nice value to uphold. To adopt a condescending air of superiority towards any working man or woman who is trying to assist you is just obscene! In the locksmith business this happens frequently. I just had to tell our locksmith technician in Atlanta, Abbot Safe & Lock, to leave a customers location because the client was being obscene in this fashion. Money does not buy anyone the right to disrespect another. I do not accept for myself or my locksmith technicians disrespect from customers. Sorry people, that’s just the truth. We all need to reconsider the way we think of ourselves and the way we treat others. Our value in this world is not measured by “who” we are or how much money we have. It is measured by how we treat the earth and humanity.
As it turns out, this Atlanta locksmith customer called us back before our Atlanta locksmith could leave the neighborhood. He apologized and asked us to return. We did so and this customer has been given the full benefit of our locksmith expertise. Forgiveness is also a nice value.

U.S. Postal Inspectors have established a hotline for those believing they victims of locksmiths’ deceptive sales practices. The phone will not be manned, but callers are encouraged to leave their contact information at 314-539-9441. The calls will trigger an investigative response. There is also a toll-free number – 877-876-2455 – but there are more steps to finding the right extension.

Scams still taking place

Fair compensation

Posted in Uncategorized by Administrator on the August 6th, 2012

“In civilized society man stands at all times in need of the cooperation and assistance of great multitudes, while his whole life is scarce sufficient to gain the friendship of a few persons. . . . Man has almost constant occasion for the help of his brethren, and it is in vain for him to expect it from their benevolence only. He will be more likely to prevail if he can interest their self-love in his favour, and show them that it is for their own advantage to do for him what he requires of them. Whoever offers to another a bargain of any kind, proposes to do this. Give me that which I want, and you shall have this which you want, is the meaning of every such offer; and it is in this manner that we obtain from one another the far greater part of those good offices which we stand in need of. It is not from the benevolence of the butcher, brewer, or the baker, that we expect our dinner, but from their regard to their own interest. . . . Nobody but a beggar chuses to depend chiefly upon the benevolence of his fellow citizens.” Adam Smith
I have always based my relationships with my clients and the employees of Abbot Safe & Lock and Master Locksmith Company Inc. on this philosophy of mutually selfish and agreeable relations. I have always promised and delivered the best service and products in return for my clients money and I have always paid my employees very well in exchange for their labor and integrity. Something wanted cannot be gained without an equal exchange or even a greater value paid by one party or the other for that thing. This is how society works and if we do not pay sufficiently to those whose labor we desire to use then society will cease to function properly.
Ayn Rand was wrong, in her book Atlas Schrugged, in so much that she asks “What will happen if the “elite” quit and disappear?” I think the proper question should be ” What will happen if the workers quite working?” What will happen if Master Locksmith’s locksmiths quite working? If I do not pay an income sufficient to the needs of a man and his family, they will quit and who will install locks on the homes and businesses of my clients. What will happen if the coffee shop continues to pay low wages and everyone decides that they will no longer slave away their lives, serving us our $5.00 lattes, for a pittance? Who is going to serve the coffee? The CEO? I doubt it. My point is this. When a man wants to work and another wants his labor, then the mutually agreeable thing for the individuals and for society is for the worker to be paid sufficiently to compensate him for that part of his life that he is giving to the task at hand. The old ethos of “every thing for me and as little as possible for you” needs to change. I as a locksmith and an employer face this daily. I give more than what I am paid for to my clients and I also pay my employees more than most would so that I recompence them for that portion of their lives which they have given to Master Locksmith and A-Abbot Safe & Lock and to our clients.

Typical job for Abbot Safe & Lock

Posted in Uncategorized by Administrator on the August 6th, 2012

Abbot Safe & Lock received a service order from a bakery that needed their door repaired. It was necessary for the door to close and latch automatically. The exit device was broken and falling off the door, preventing it from closing. We removed the door, removed all the old components of the device and installed(better than the original)the new device.

“Returning Customers”

Posted in Uncategorized by Administrator on the August 2nd, 2012

We have many regular customers. Clients who are experienced and who know that they can depend on A-Abbot Safe & Lock to be dependable and provide superior locksmith service. They use our service exclusively!
Then we have our “returning” customers. These are the ones who used our services for a period of time and then decided to try someone else. Unfortunately, these clients are usually looking for a “cheap” locksmith. Many have been the times that these clients call us back after a period of time. It is often because they have issues that the “cheap” locksmith cannot resolve and they are having problems with some of the work that has been performed by these others. It short, we are being called back to save them from their current crisis AND to repair the damage done by others.
That is what has happened with the Atlanta Area School For The Deaf. For years Mike Wilson, who now runs our Master Locksmith Co. Inc. in Houston Texas, provided the best locksmith service available to the school. Then they stopped calling. Well we are back over there right now, replacing some Sargent Mortice locks and fixing locks that were installed by a different company! The locks at the school are obsolete and the new replacements need to be retrofitted. This requires a lot of locksmith skill and patience. Judging by the looks of the work done by others, those qualities were lacking.
We do not mind fixing other locksmiths mistakes. We are happy when our customers “return” and we are happy to help fix their problems. I would, though, advise people to keep using a service provider that is providing them the service they need and are doing so in a superior fashion. Trying to save what amounts to a few pennies is not worth the risk of poor, unreliable service.
