Guardian Angel Lock & Security Review

"Most burglaries take less than 15 minutes, so thieves won’t search every nook and cranny of your home. A decoy safe serves as a ‘dummy’ to distract burglars from finding your real safe and valuables."

Hidden Hills - April 16, 2019

I had never used N2N yet, but I needed a locksmith, so I decided to try it. Guardian Angel Lock & Security sent Gilli out right away. He was on time, pleasant, thorough and reasonably priced. (I appreciate the N2N discount they offered to new clients.) If I have needs in the future, I will definitely use N2N, Guardian Angel and Gilli again as well as recommend them to others.

Eli did an inspection of my home to see if there were any trouble spots in terms of security. He installed locks for me, too. I used him as a great reference for security and feeling more confident about protecting my home. He is just a really good guy. A lot of people in that business are just looking to sell things. Eli has so much integrity. He was in the Israeli army and that kind of call to service is what shows up in his business.
I am sure what he charges is fair. My guess is that he isn’t the cheapest or the most expensive, but he is absolutely worth it because he is such a good guy.

Guardian Angel rekeyed the locks to my house. They have been over a few times to do various work rekeying locks. We always use him when we can. Eli provides a great service at a competitive price.

I am in real estate and Guardian Angel has taken care of my businesses as well as homes for about the past 6 years. They have fixed doors, changed locks, the whole nine yards. When I call, they are prompt. Their pricing is competitive, but for the service they offer they are very reasonable.

Guardian Angel did all the locks in my house and business. He put in a heavy-duty safety lock on my front door and changed all the locks when we remodeled. They also installed a safe in my house. They are very good! They come quickly whenever I need them. I highly recommend Guardian Angel.

I’ve known Guardian Angel Lock & Security for a very long time and am definitely pleased with the service. They are very responsive, responsible, are always on time and are very professional. They offer decent prices and are incredibly honest. They never try to sell you things you don’t need. I’ve met Eli a few times and he does a very good job for me. I highly recommend them.

Guardian Angel Lock & Security are great! They really care about their customers and go above and beyond to make sure everything is taken care of. They’ve been installing new locks for our business over the past seven years. We know all of the staff and crew now, all very nice and professional. Eli is very customer service oriented and is always asking himself how he can improve his service. I have absolutely no hesitations recommending them.

Eli?! He’s the best guy in the whole wide world. Honestly, one of the best people I’ve ever worked with. I’m a contractor and I fix people’s homes when they’re moving out. I use Eli when I have a problem with a lock and have used him a zillion times. I work with people all the time and I’d say that 70% of them are unreliable and 5% of them are perfect. Eli is one of the 5%. He’s a super, super good guy. Very professional, very easy-going and incredibly reasonable with his prices. He is so inexpensive, it’s a little nutty if you ask me. I’ve used him personally as well and am really happy to have him in my repertoire.

I'm a contractor and designer and refer Guardian Angel Locksmith to all of my clients. Guardian Angel is great because they do everything—front door systems, inside the house, knob and door adjustments, even safes. I love that they bring a ShopVac with them to clean up the little bits of dust they make after a job. And Eli's shop in Ventura is amazing, with lots of quirky, decorated keys. Whenever I have an emergency, I can call Eli and he shows up right away. He's like a savior to me!

I’ve used Guardian Angel Locksmith several times. I’ve worked with several different locksmith companies over the years, and they are by far the best I have used and also the most professional—everyone comes in uniform. The pricing is fair considering the high-quality of the components they use and the very thorough work. Eli came out for the initial job and one of his employees came out for the follow up. Everything was top notch and the customer service was excellent. I couldn’t have been happier. I’d recommend them to anyone.

I’ve known Eli for a number of years, originally from my networking group. We all use him and love him. I’ve watched him grow his company beautifully, 100% due to who he is as a person. Eli is selfless, cordial and you never have to worry if he’s going to show up. All of his crew-members and office staff are great people. Once, he helped me out at one in the morning when I was locked out of my house. He showed up smiling and made no mention of the bill. Just said, “Have a good night, get some rest,” and that was it. I work in the insurance business and would give him to any of my clients without hesitation.
