New York Locksmiths Reviews

"When I first bought the voucher, he called me almost immediately. I explained that I was wrapping up a renovation and wanted to change the locks once it was done, and would call him then. When it came time to change the locks, I called and left him a message at work. A day passed, and he didn't call back. I tried his cell and he didn't answer, but he texted back right away to say he wasn't in position to talk but would call me back. Another day passed, and he hadn't called back. I called his cell again and he said he was driving but would call me back in a few minutes. Instead, it was a few hours. By then, I was in an appointment and missed his call. When I called back, he said he was in the middle of a job and couldn't write anything down. I confirmed a time for an appointment and offered to send him a text with all the relevant details. He said he would text back to confirm he received it. He never did. The day before the appointment, I texted him again to confirm that we were on. He never replied. The time of the appointment came and he didn't show up. I called his cell and he said he had child-care issues and would be at least a half-hour late. When I told him that wasn't doable because I had to leave for work and that rescheduling would be difficult because I was about to go out of town, he rudely told me to call Angie's List and get a refund.

answered phone in person. Told me to await a call back from locksmith within 1-2 hours. He called in a timely fashion. After description of the problem we both decided that the issue was one of malalignment of the door rather than a faulty lock. They declined to make house call to review problem as, after discussion, we were in agreement as to the cause. I think that was honest and professional of them to save time/money for both parties.

"Our building (a small brownstone on the upper west side) used
New York Locksmiths Provider Name Locked
's about a year ago to repair our existing door buzzer/
New York Locksmiths Provider Name Locked
system which was internmittently going on and off.
New York Locksmiths Provider Name Locked
's came and diagnosed the problem as a failure of the mother board (the heart of the system) and gave an estimate for repair. Because not many companies were interested in repairing an older system, we went ahead and used
New York Locksmiths Provider Name Locked
's and replaced the entire heart of the system (at quite a hefty price). From practically the day the system was repaired, we have had problems with it.
New York Locksmiths Provider Name Locked
's gave a very short warranty period of a few months (and during this time, they did come back a few time to fix problems). Even after the their several visits, there continued to be problems.
About a month or two ago, one of the apartment owners in the building contacted
New York Locksmiths Provider Name Locked
's because her buzzer/
New York Locksmiths Provider Name Locked
system was not working at all. The owner of
New York Locksmiths Provider Name Locked
's made the service call himself and spent about 3 hours trying to fix the problem; at the end of his visit he admitted he didn't know what to try next and left without the problem being resolved. After he left, it was discovered that several of the previously working intercoms were now not working (so, in fact, he made the problem worse). After several attempts to call
New York Locksmiths Provider Name Locked
's and have them at least restore the previously working intercoms, there has been a complete lack of willingness and ability to resolve the situation. They wouldn't even respond to tell us the name of the systme we had so that we could have a capable company come fix it.
So now, shortly after we paid for a very costly repair, we are going to have to replace the whole system because of
New York Locksmiths Provider Name Locked
's literal incompetence. I definately would NOT recommend using them - they are not knowledgeable, unresponsive and not professional.

"I submitted an inquiry online regarding a door closer replacement which i needed as soon as possible. I got an immediate response from Guy. The next day, the technicians came with a good quality door closer and installed it in an efficient and professional manner - and it works well! I will definitely use them in the future!

"We were moving into a new apartment so I went online and purchased this deal. As soon as I purchased it, I tried to contact them via email, but the email bounced back. Then I tried calling and leaving a message, since I wanted to schedule the locksmith to come as soon as we closed and got the keys. However, I didn't receive a call back. So then I went in through the angie's list site and tried to contact them that way.
Two days after I purchased the deal, I got a call from them (Angie's list only guarantees that they will contact you within two days). Turns out he was able to come by that day, he called to let me know he was on his way, showed up, was knowledgeable, changed both my locks quickly and was friendly and courteous. I was worried initially when I didn't hear from him right away, but it worked out great and I would use him again.

was able to fix in 5 minutes what another locksmith screwed up and charged me a very fair price given it was only 5 minutes of work. When I asked the other locksmith to fix what they installed poorly, they came to see the job again but told me nothing was wrong and actually blamed me for not knowing how to close my door correctly.

"What a professional and hardworking locksmith!
New York Locksmiths Provider Name Locked
was very responsive and he explained how everything fits together when putting a lock on the door. I should have hired a locksmith on the first go but wanted to save money save some money but because of Angie's List, I gave Embassy a try. Glad I did because I have a working upper lock that is not loose anymore! I was also originally not understanding of the way the coupon worked because locksmith's do charge for labor in addition to service charge versus just the service charge which the coupon applied to. Nonetheless, the job was thorough, professional and his pricing is very fair for the city. Will enlist

's services again in the future!

"I was charged $75 more than my quote. They said they saved me from buying a new lock for $300 on the bottom.
I figured, they can just say that and charge more since it really just means the same thing I wanted: change the lock. They changed the cylinder part which was some new term I learned but either way, I asked them to change the lock to get new keys but they charged more.
Furthermore, I researched prices for the locks they installed. They range from very cheap to high priced but I imagine the most for both locks is $100 each. That leaves me at $200 for just the locks let's say. I don't know what brand or make they use since they didn't say. Also, another $200 for what? He was there for one hour
New York Locksmiths Provider Name Locked
. I could deal with $65 for labor plus $35 service, which would have left me at $300.

I believe I should not have been charged $75 extra. - $20 for a

proof when you charge $165 ? I suppose you incorporate installation in that which is ok but seems steep. Here is the link: http://www.amazon.com/

Also, mortise cylinder cost of $10 and was charged $95. link:

That is fine I suppose cause of retail cost of the item and also cause of installation. But another $75 for taking about 30 minutes longer to install because of some further adjustments.. Well.. after finding out these prices the overall rating I give is now a C. I feel like I was overcharged. Please inform me someone of the average costs.. I really can't get a clear answer. But from what I am seeing this seems to be highly priced.

came tonight and was making sure I understood the parking problem in the neighborhood which I understand because he was trying to be punctual and I appreciate that. He was in fact on time. Anyways, I did not have electricity at the time since I just bought the coop so I provided extra light with a flashlight and helped the whole way through in that respect and he was doing well despite not the best condition at the time. Kudos to professionalism in that respect.
As he started he said that the deadbolt was not flush to the wall and that he had to screw in holes since it mismatched. He was explaining the way the deadbolt piece moves up over the holes if you screw the top all the way, which was already obvious.
Then we worked on the bottom one. He started saying that the lock is broken and it's no good, and that it's loose and that they used the wrong screws. He figured out a way to tighten the cylinder in. But I feel that after we finished and seeing the extra charge of $75 pop up, that I had to question. I already was quoted $260 for a new lock to be replaced both top and bottom as well as $35 service charge call. I explained via my words about "needing two locks to be fixed."
New York Locksmiths Provider Name Locked
never explained the whole cylinder deal. I said I wanted to replace a lock. So they started replacing the "cylinder" which I learned was the part that I wanted to replace since
New York Locksmiths Provider Name Locked
sensed that I just wanted a new key. It was not the lock to be replaced, it was the cylinder. Something I had to learn through the sudden charge. I had to call
New York Locksmiths Provider Name Locked
later who sent out
New York Locksmiths Provider Name Locked
, and ask why. He said the lock was broken and he had to repair it and that he saved me another $300 for a new lock by repairing the current lock. I just saw it as making the lock work. I already spent $165 for the deadbolt, and $95 for just the cylinder-- Which I thought was communicated to me as a lock being changed and another added. I was annoyed that he said the only thing that you pay for $95 is the cylinder being screwed in. If that was the case, I would go and buy my own cylinder but I realize that going through the job of making sure it works with the lock is something they chose to incur another expense on me. I just wish that could have been explained to me. And
New York Locksmiths Provider Name Locked
broke a key half way through which means I need to buy myself another copy of the key which should have been provided.
New York Locksmiths Provider Name Locked
did offer me a discount of the $75 if I wanted to replace the lock with a new one but only if I wanted to within a day or so. This is to say not the cylinder, but the lock which they say is $300. He mentioned that because I told him that
New York Locksmiths Provider Name Locked
mentioned, after replacing the cylinder and making it work with the lock, that the lock I have now should last at least another 3 months or so since it's so old. WHY would I want to go through the effort of paying for something that is only going to last another 3 months and then pay more for the replacement? THen I asked
New York Locksmiths Provider Name Locked
again about the lifespan and he said I don't know it could last another 3 years.. SO I felt a bit scammed into paying more than I should have. The prices were fine just didn't expect a surprise charge based on our conversation. Please be aware of any surprise charges with them. I suggest that
New York Locksmiths Provider Name Locked
be more thorough about what he does. He was nice enough to talk on the phone later that night after I complained. I appreciate still that it was done in an hour, I probably would have gotten not as quick service from someone if they were just a handyman considering the strange set-up of the locks and their placement on the door that was not quite flush to the frame. But still, surprise charge of $75 (which they said was a discount and should have been $100) cause of that- was a bit shocking given that I already discussed a quote concerning replacing a lock. It was all not very clear, and inconsiderate. Pricing may have been too high I think for what I have just read online concerning locksmith costs..
