Mobile Locksmith was founded by John H. Blackburn Sr. in 1968 in West Taghkanic, New York. At the time, it was called A Country Lock Shop. It was one man, one van. After moving to Gainesville, Florida, with his wife in 1979, John H. Blackburn Sr. reopened his business as Mobile Locksmith, earning a reputation as an honest and dependable choice for residents of Gainesville and the surrounding areas.
In 1983 and with the business growing, John H. Blackburn Sr. convinced his son John H. Blackburn II to not reenlist in the United States Marine Corps and to come to Gainesville and begin growing a family business: two men, one van.
Our company has grown significantly, opening a location on Archer Road, running as many as five dispatched units at a time, and showing Gainesville the value of hard work and years of experience.
Since the beginning, Mobile Locksmith has been about integrity, craftsmanship, and the old-fashioned notion of the American Dream.
