Charley Eastwood has over 25 years of experience in the locksmith industry. Hailing from the North East Lakes area of South Dakota and being an avid traveler he has lived all over the country and seen many different aspects of the locksmith industry. Spending the last 14 years in the Phoenix, AZ area he is very familiar with the local residential and commercial markets as well as the automotive and high security side of the business. His passion though is servicing and opening safes.
Charley has had a lot of ups and downs in the industry and the scammers have taken a heavy toll on his business and personal life. When he was given the opportunity to start The Locksmith Show he jumped on at the chance. He sees this as a method for consumer advocacy and education about the locksmith field in general. After meeting Andrew he knew he found his co-host and the show really started gaining traction.
Charley looks forward to spending many more years in the Phoenix market. He hopes the radio show does well and we can shed some more light on the prolific scammer issue we as a community are facing. As the Southwest Director of ALOA (Associated Locksmiths of America) Charley is a very active member in the locksmith community and looks forward to his continued participation in ALOA. If you ever need a skilled local locksmith don’t hesitate to call Locksmith Charley.
Andrew McColley has been a locksmith for nearly 15 years and owned Andrews Lock and Key for almost seven of those years. Working for as long as he has in the industry and owning his own locksmith company gives Andrew a lot of knowledge and perspective on the industry. When Charley contacted Andrew about starting The Locksmith Show, he jumped on the opportunity. Being able to educate the general public about this industry is something Andrew takes very seriously.
Getting the word out about the prevalent scammer issue the public and professional locksmiths face is of top priority to Andrew. He has had hundreds of customers contact him with stories of scammers coming out and not being able to do the job and over charging customers hundred and thousands of dollars. It is his goal to provide an excellent, ethical, honest, and skilled locksmith experience with all customers. Andrews hopes that he is able to help the public out with this radio show avoid being scammed and help improve the locksmith industry as a whole.
