    Baystate Locksmith Services
    Very friendly over the phone. I drove to his shop with three mortise locks from my old home. Had several keys on-hand and after a few minutes of fitting, I had 4x keys for my old mortise locks. Friendly and professional service. I did call before going, this is a one-man business so if the owner is on a service call then the shop is locked.

    At the first call, I asked for a quote, the lady told me that someone would call me shortly.  This "someone" called me few minutes later, asking for my address, then told me that someone [else] would be there in about 35 minutes.  I asked again how much was I to expect to pay, and was told very vaguely that there's a $19 service fee for anyone to show up, and opening locks starts at $49 depending on what kind of lock.  I couldn't exactly describe the lock except that I put a key in to turn it (vs. dead bolt); he complained that I'm not telling him a lot. I informed him once again that it's the front door to my apartment, before he hurriedly ended the call.  Given he's supposedly the professional, I thought he knew what he was talking about.
    Almost an hour from the original call was placed, a guy showed up, quoting me $160 for the service!!  Being a captive audience at this point, I had to proceed.  Yet, it took the guy a lot of jiggling and nearly 45 minutes to finally get the door open (vs. a "10-minute job" as he claimed), and coincidentally when I was calling the building management and on way to look for another locksmith.  He even tried to "offer" another solution which was to pull the lock out for extra $40, and we would have to replace it at our own expense.  Which was what urged me to try to locate another locksmith... but voila, the second I put my phone to the ear, and the lock was successfully picked!
    While the guy was still "trying", I called back Kobalt to complain about the HUGE discrepancy between the quote and actual price, stating that while I understand what "$49 and up" means, I did not expect a 300% increase upon the guy's arrival!  If I was told it would be at least $160, at least chose to enter the contract that way.  But giving me a ridiculously low quote to lure me in, then making me wait half a day only to tell me the price has just tripled is totally unacceptable business practice.  As I called back to voice my displease, the lady on the phone told me that "someone" would call me back, a gentleman by the name of Roy, but I never heard back from him.  The guy picking my lock claims that he doesn't know anyone by that name, but has heard of him in the last couple jobs he showed up for.
    Bottom line, this line of business is probably as sketchy as it gets and definitely requires more regulation.  But having "someone" call "someone" to show up and then try and charge me 300% from the original "quote" on top of trying to up-sell, along with the coincidental success when I was about to call another locksmith...  all these don't leave a very good impression, and definitely would not get return business.  Not that I'm looking to lock myself out ever again, but these people certainly aren't making the day go by any easier.

    Pride Locksmith
    I had a very positive experience with Pride Locksmith.  I initially called to set up an appointment, but the owner was on vacation for the Holiday.  (Yet, he still took the time to call me back and offered to do the work when he returned).  I wanted to get the locks changed right away so I tried another locksmith.  (They were a no-show for the appointment, so clearly I didn't go with them.)  So, I called Pride Locksmith again & scheduled an appointment.  The owner was very courteous and professional.  He didn't pressure me into buying all new locks, but still gave sound advice.  The locks were installed in a timely manner, he didn't make a mess, and I received a discount because of Angie's List.  So I was very pleased with the service.

    Despite having an appointment (and even calling the day before), the company was a no-show!   I wasted four hours of my day-off waiting for them and never even received a phone call about rescheduling.  Since I had spoken to 2 employees, it is highly unlikely that they didn't have me scheduled.  And when I called the company (after my appointment time passed), the office was closed.  To make it more insulting, the answering service put me in touch with a technician who said he could come by, but he'd have to charge extra!  I will never use this company or recommend it to any of my family and friends in the area.

    ACE LOCKSMITH & SECURITY SYSTEMS INC.
    I WAS HAPPY THAT ACE LOCK CAME TO INSTALL A NEW LOCK HOWEVER I DIDN'T FIND THE MAN OR OFFICE HELP TO FRIENDLY. IT SEEMED KIND OF PRICEY FOR AN INSTALLATION OF A NEW LOCK. IT WAS NOT AFTER HOURS OR ON THE WEEKEND.
