As a part of Greeley Lock & Key, LockTech has been Northern Colorado’s one stop shop for security needs for the last four decades. But what makes us special isn’t that we’ve been around for 40 years, or that we’re the largest lock shop in this part of the state.
We take our customers’ security seriously and go beyond just installing locksets. We provide peace of mind. Did you know anyone can be a locksmith? Even felons? There are no regulations in Colorado regarding the locksmithing industry, and because of that, locksmithing is plagued by what are known as “trunk slammers.” Many of these individuals have little to no skill in locksmithing and work out of their cars. They have no shop or store front. An unfortunate majority of them can’t be trusted either. Even worse, they disappear the minute you need to get a hold of them!
Without regulations, it’s difficult to stand out from the rest, so we take matters into our own hands. All LockTech employees drive a vehicle wrapped with our company’s information, have been background checked and drug tested, and are required to wear uniforms when they enter your home or business. There’s an element of accountability with us that’s simply not available with other locksmiths in Loveland, or anywhere in Northern Colorado: we have a retail store where you can receive over-the-counter services. You come in when you need us, and we’ll be here. And if you’ve locked yourself out of your home or car, or simply can’t find your keys, we offer emergency services 24 hours a day, seven days a week.
If you’re looking for a locksmith in Loveland that takes your security seriously, give us a call at (970) 593-3020!
