Pregunte por Arturo
About Arturo (Art) Uribe: He began managing employees at age 20. He held several sales positions throughout his career. He worked as a carpenter for many years, and also worked as a press operator. He has been a union worker for much of his career. Prior to locksmithing, Art worked as a foreman building and installing trade shows. He also paints cars as a hobby, and knows his way around a vehicle.

Art says, "The Shop began in my father-in-law's (Preston Roper) garage in January 1977. The Shop opened on 3rd Street in Atwater in 1981. They then moved to our present location at 1101 Broadway Ave, Atwater (corner of 2nd and Broadway), in 1989. I learned the locksmithing business in September 2002, then, my wife Lisa and I purchased A-1-A / Preston's Lock Shop from my mother-in-law (Sharon Roper) in 2003."

With his knowledge of the mechanics of cars and trucks, becoming a locksmith wasn't a difficult feat. He enjoys it all and because he loves it, he does well at it. We guarantee our work and always provide the utmost in customer service.

We sell products such as keys, locks, lock/handle sets, safes (small to large), special orders, car door locks and ignitions, transponder (chip) keys, remotes and much more. We program many of the transponder keys, so our customers don't have to pay the expensive dealer prices. We also cut High Security keys. We provide service to all of Merced County and sometimes beyond. We do our best to save our customers time and money.
