    ELGIN KEY & LOCK CO INC
    When he came out he saw how much of the door would have to be painted. He worked to get the door handle to stop falling off, which he did. He also gave us tips on how to take care of the existing lock set. Instead of the job costing over $280 his repair ran around $104. He also showed up early at 8:00 am instead of coming between 9 and 11 am. Very professional, we will use again in the future.

    I'm a property manager of a building and needed the lock fixed quickly since it was both a safety and fire escape route issue. They came out same-day, replaced the lock and we were back in business. The price was right and they did an awesome job. I'll be calling Bluebird the next time I need them.

    It went well. The person who took my call was very professional. He tried to find a way to reduce my cost, and when it was clear they'd need to come out, he was upfront about the service call fee. The scheduling was good - I got someone out quickly the next day. The person who came to make the service call - Clark - was prompt, polite, and did the work. The front door now opens.

    Quick Key Locksmith
    On time and quick with quality service. They said that they had product with them and to not worry about buying the locks. Unfortunatly the front door one, the one that we wanted changed, we did not want gold and they did NOT have silver. We wish that they would have told us to go buy the one we wanted first, other than that use them. We used an Angies list coupon.

    EXPERT LOCK & SECURITY
    We have recently moved to a new house and needed to change the locks and have new keys .  Gary came out to the house and took care of the locks and then was kind enough to help us figure out the locking system on the garage doors as well.  We were happy with his service and would call him in the future.

    I called in the late morning, and the technician came out about two hours later. Fortunately, the company had the lock that I wanted in stock. The technician worked carefully but expeditiously. The mechanism is working exactly as expected.

    A different locksmith was handed an address to drill and replace the locks on a foreclosed home in my neighborhood.  They drilled my locks instead.  Gary came out and replaced my lock and rekeyed it.  Glad that there are honest locksmiths like Gary out there.

    Bob showed up on Saturday morning after I locked myself out (all the doors seemed to automatically lock when they were pulled shut). I had a couple other guys out there to clean the fireplaces at the same time and one of them had been able to open the lock with a card since the deadbolt wasn't latched.
    Bob went ahead and rekeyed the locks for me. He put thought into what the best way to key each door would be in order to reduce the overall number of keys I needed. The front door was no easy task -- the lock is very old; I assume it is the original lock for the house (1911). He had to take the enitre lock off the door, but he was able to clean it, figure out how the mechanism worked, and had the right type of key to rekey it to.
    Originally I wanted the garage door to be rekeyed as well, but I was told that the door didn't fit very well and ideally, a better door with a new lock would be the way to go. This could then be keyed to match the cellar door. Overall, this would reduce the number of different locks I had down to two -- and the number of duplicate keys I had down to something much more reasonable.
    Bob did very good work and when I get a new door on the garage, I plan on having them key that as well.

    I closed on my house on 7/10/09 and called Elgin Key and Lock that afternoon. I asked them to re-key all of the exterior locks. They scheduled the appointment less than 24 hours later and the locksmith arrived on time. The work was done per my instructions. The locksmith also showed me some issues with one of my doors and suggested some improvements that could be made in the future. There was no pressure to do anything extra right away. The locksmith also showed me how to use the an extra security bar on an exterior sliding door.

    I found Elgin Lock and Key with a local Google search; it is the closest locksmith to my recently-purchased home. After purchasing the home, I wanted to replace the locks on both entry doors. I called and asked for an estimate. Over the phone, I was quoted approximately $75 to replace both sets of locks. The company was able to meet my same-day request, as my house is just down the street. When the contractor came to my home, he was very polite and professional, and brought his own tools. He asked me to sign the estimate, reading $75. He measured the doors, assembled and installed the locks. After the locks were installed and the work was finished, I was given the estimate back: the original $75 was crossed out and replaced with $325. I asked about the price discrepancy, and was told that the locks required more work than anticipated. Did it really require FOUR TIMES the amount of work? I paid the contractor and he left. The locks are top quality and work very well. The price, however, was a bit more than I was expecting to pay.
