Chicago Locksmiths Reviews

A
"We called them on a whim at 1pm to ask if they had time to come out and look at a our door lock that wasn't working properly with our key. They said they could come out right away! Nick arrived and fixed our lock in 20 minutes. Great service, price and availability.

"Called to say he was running late -- would probably not be there in the time interval specified when I made the appointment, but arrived not much later.
Set about the task efficiently -- clearly knew what was required to complete it, and had the necessary equipment -- and parts (my new lock) -- with him. The entire visit was less than 20 minutes....more /> I knew the approximate cost per task -- it had been provided to me by the person who made my appointment with the locksmith -- but I would like to have had the locksmith himself tell me again what the potential costs were before he set to work. If there is a lock you do not have a key for, there are different ways of getting it unlocked which they try -- the less expensive way did not work in this case, so I had to pay more -- this is what I would like to have had explained, or explained again.
The experience was very good, all told. Just some less-than-ideal details to it.

came out several times to measure to get the exact part for the multi-point locking mechanism that had broken since it was coming from Germany. "Measure twice, cut once". He was flexible with time and was always able work around my schedule. He went above and beyond by taking care of the hinges and strike plate without charging me. I would recommend

called before arrival and arrived earlier than the scheduled time. That was the only positive aspect of this experience. He told me he couldn't rekey two of the locks because they were certain types of locks that needed a master key and instead of about $150 it would cost over $500 to rekey all four locks because he'd have to replace all of the knobs . As it was late afternoon and I was moving in that evening, I had to have the locks changed by him or I'd have to pay another locksmith emergency rates because it was after regular hours. When he went to his truck to get the new hardware, he discovered he had locked his keys in the truck. He called for assistance and we proceeded to stand around in my living room. After about a half hour I asked him how long it would take for someone to get there and he said he didn't know - and asked me if had anything else I needed to do. Obviously what I needed was to get my locks changed so I could leave to get the things I needed to move in. After a long time, he asked if I had a wire hanger and he then broke into his truck and got the equipment needed, but only after initially bringing in the wrong color knobs and dropping the box on my hardwood floor. When he finished, the keys worked in the new locks so long as you did some adjusting to how far you let the two doors close. When I had called to make the appointment, I had been asked what type of locks they were and I told them they were all Schlage. All the knobs and locks that were installed were some brand I never heard of and

told me his company only stocked one brand. He then told me that the knobs took Schlage keys which is not true because none of the keys said Schlage and the locks were not a Schlage brand. When he wrote up the invoice he said he gave me some discount and instead of over $500 he would charge me only $459.54 - for what was supposed to have been a $149 rekey job. I have since had four instances where I cannot get the knob key to turn in one of the doors without constantly repositioning the door by pulling or pushing on the knob to get the key to turn. Unfortunately, with other moving expenses, I cannot afford to have another locksmith fix the apparently shoddy installation of this company.

"After reading reviews we decided to use
Chicago Locksmiths Provider Name Locked
to re-key our home locks after our recent move in. The task of re-keying was performed excellently and done promptly. Importantly, the locksmiths that came to our house were incredibly friendly and professional. I would highly recommend them for your locksmith needs. The job came in just under quote as once the locksmiths were on site they were able to reevaluate what I had been asking for ."

"IT WORKED FOR ABOUT 3 DAYS AND THE DOOR WOULD NOT WORK AGAIN. MY HANDYMAN (WHO IS NOT A LOCKSMITH )FIXED THE PROBLEM FOR GOOD AT LESS THAN HALF THE OTHER MAN'S BILL.

"The locksmith was very prompt - he even came on the subzero day when all the schools were closed. He worked quickly and well. We re-keyed all our outside locks to one key.
"

"Bill was very accessible and came out the next day. We had a small problem after he left where the repair did not work and he came out the same day to repair the repair. The repair consisted of slightly bending the piece he affixed to the gate so it seemed to be a bit of a rudimentary fix therefore I scored him down a bit on quality, but still gave a B. Bill is awesome and I highly recommend him.
"

"I needed three locks replaced and called Amazing based on the fact they were somewhat close and had good reviews. On a weekend morning I called before 9am. I was not in any real hurry but they said they would send someone out that morning. Before 11am all of my locks were changed out. Good and fast service. No complaints.
"
A
"It was great, he arrived about 15 minutes early and called to let me know he was there. Looked at all the locks to be replaced, asked me how many different keys we wanted and then went to work. He comes with all of his tools and worked expeditiously. Very professional and courteous.
