I was a walk in customer with a 2008 Honda that had two broken fobs and only one usable key. I was greeted at the door and after only 20 minutes, I was back on the road with two new keys and working fobs. Outstanding customer service and Anthony really knew his stuff. I will always take my locksmith needs here.

Anthony did an excellent job. I couldn’t unlock my car due to the locked being jammed. Neither of my key fobs worked. After having a service unlock the car I luckily found this place to get new keys with remotes made. Anthony was very knowledgeable, friendly, and fast. They had the parts on site to make the keys, no need for them to be ordered. Anthony pinpointed the problem and I was in and out in less than 45 minutes.If I need any work done on keys or locks I will call them first every time.Highly recommend to anyone needing automotive keys made.

We have used them twice at my work. One time was to totally change the hardware on a door and the second was to rekey a lock.We had Damien as our locksmith both times and were satisfied both times. Prices were fair as well. We will call Colgate anytime we need service in the future at the Logan Street Market.

Heaven sent!Lost my key fob and Josh came here to furnish me a new one, all programmed to work just like the lost one. Everything worked perfect.I called other automotive locksmith around Louisville but Colgate's gave me the best price. Don't go anywhere else! Not even the dealership. They are way overpriced and a ripoff. This is the company to call for all of your "key" problems☺️👍

Josh came to cut keys to my truck, was here within the hour just like I was told when I called in. He had my keys cut with in 30 minutes and even went out and beyond what he had to do. I didn’t have a lot of money and called around and got some ridiculous prices but Colgate was reasonable. The reviews I read are accurate and they do great work on a budget. Thank you Josh and the company for everything because I didn’t know what I was going to do

When my purse was stolen along with my keys a few weeks ago, my dad recommended Colgate's to rekey my car and reprogram my key fob, as he uses their services often for his auto shop. I was very happy with the prompt service and I appreciate the sense of humor of the employees! I would recommend Colgate's to anyone needing automotive key services.

I was struggling with a piece of wire in a parking lot of a supermarket..... a black truck swooped in beside me, a man climbed out and asked if was having trouble( I obviously was). He informed me he was a locksmith, and before I could finish the next sentence he had my car door open. I thanked him profusely, he said "remember Colgate locksmith, were on dixie" so, shout out to my man for saving the day. I'll definitely be putting you guys out there. Thanks so much!!!!!

I have a Push-to-Start 2011 Hybrid that had a misplaced key.I was told they were the best in town, and after I called around to make sure that was the case I had them come out to my house to service my car.They were available that day and within 5 minutes a dispatcher named Josh had sent someone out to me.Josh (another Josh) called me before he arrived and then called me when he arrived. I walked outside and spoke with him, he told me it'd be about 10-15min. until he was finished (my battery was also dead), then he knocked on the door when he was done.He was quick, super friendly, and professional but not on that corporate BS level of fake professionalism, you know?When all was said and done it cost me $220 for the new push-to-start key and the programming and the service to my location. That was the best in town I could find.Thank you Colgate, and thanks Josh and Josh!Peace.

My car is my life line. Lost my car key last night and needed a replacement today. This was the only place that had my key brand in stock. Hutch and the owner had great attitudes. Only complaint I have is how long the whole process took (I think Hutch said he was the only one out servicing people though, and it was a Saturday, so it's really nothing they could've done)
