I used Olympic over the weekend to replace all my door locks in my condo. They had the best price quoted so I went with them and they have high quality service. The locksmith was fast and cleaned up after himself before he left.

This is one of those times where I'm glad I have a platform where I can recommend a business.
A few days ago I got locked out of my apartment. I got a few quotes from all sort of locksmith companies - and decided to go with Olympic, since they were pretty close to where I live.
The locksmith (sorry forgot his name - Alex maybe?) got to my door within 10 minutes of my call - worked on it for a few moments and charged exactly what I was quoted. When I expressed my surprise - he said that if want to return a favor - I can spread the word. So here I am spreading the word - there's a decent locksmith company in the Chi!

We had a special situation in that our iron doors were not a standard size neither were the holes that were cut in the door. We had several people attempt to find a lock that fit our door and there were several more attempts at trying to fix locks that were purchased. BUT, no one was able to rectify our situation. We were living with chain and padlock at our front door for several months! I had locksmiths that came by and took one look at the door and literally said they don't want the business. I found Olympic locksmith on google, and called them one evening. Dave showed up within 15 minutes and I had locks on my door a day later! We ended up re-keying all our doors and converting to mul-t-lock and are delighted with everything. We loved the customer service, skills and knowledge that Dave brought to the table. He is prompt, has good follow through and delivers.

I was running late one morning trying to get to the office and locked my 5 month old in my running vehicle. After calling 411 I reached Olympic locksmith , the quickest service guys ever, within five minutes the guy was standing in my driveway. We barely had time to say hello before he had already unlocked my car. My son never knew that he was in great danger, but thanks to Olympic locksmith he is safe and sound!

I needed a locksmith to come out and change the locks on my Daughter's new home. After shopping around to get an idea of what it would cost - Olympic locksmith seemed to have the most reasonable price. We set up an appointment and they were out that afternoon - on time and ready to work! The locksmith serviced all my Daughter's locks and saved me some money, because I did not have to replace the locks in her home. He was able to change the key that worked them and cancel out the old key. The guy was great! The most impressive thing he did was to point out several security issues that my daughter had with her new home and had some simple inexpensive solutions to resolve them. I would recommend Olympic locksmith to anyone!!! They really know their stuff!

My first experience with Olympic was excellent. Call prompted answered, gave me a 30 minute arrival time - at 6PM on a Friday. He came on time, fixed my lock within 10 minutes. Charged a nominal fee and was off. I couldn't be happier! Other locksmiths were going to charge $200+ for off hour visits! He came fully equipped with an impressive tool box and seemed to know everything about locks and keys. Highly recommended.

I locked myself out of my car. I looked online for someone reliable and that's what I got. Their estimate ($ 85 / on the phone) was their price for the work. They said it would take them 20 minutes to arrive, it took them 15. My only problem is that their inconsiderate towards credit cards. I don't like to carry cash and the tech didn't want to take my credit card because it was for a small amount. But the agitation of this was overshadowed by their quick service. Would use them again.

Web page states automotive transponder keys made on site. I lost the keys for my Toyota and the man that answered the phone stated that they do not provide this service. I called Advanced Lock & key at 847 759 9800 and the guy acted like my situation was not a big deal. They dispatched a locksmith and it took him about 45 minutes to complete the job. ??? What gives???

The website for this company states that they make automotive transponder keys on site and replace lost keys. My keys were stolen, so I called. The man that answered the phone said that they do serve Skokie, and they make keys, but not for my 2005 Toyota. He went on to explain that if it were not a transponder key, he may be able to do the job, but transponder keys require special equipment to program the keys. I referenced the advertisement on the web site and he then said that my car was too new for him to work on and I must see the dealer tomorrow. I kept calling around. I called Advanced Lock & Key at 847 759 9800. The guy acted like it was no big deal and said he would come tonight and replace my lost keys. Just over an hour later, I had two working keys and he even provided the factory remotes to unlock the doors and trunk. What gives??? A "locksmith" who is unable to replace lost keys? Sounds like a scam. Beware...

I was doing a late night laundry, and got locked out of my apartment at 1AM!
Called 411 and they connected me to Olympic Locksmith. The tech came within 20 minutes, took care of the lock - without damaging or changing anything, all in a professional manner. Cost was reasonable and response time was amazing!

These guys are extremely unprofessional ! After working on my lock for 15 min, the locksmith starts swearing loudly .. Turns out he parked in front of the building - only 15 min max flashing lights. He starts packing up, saying he doesn't want to get towed, that he didn't want the job anymore !!! When I asked him why he didn't find a proper parking spot, he got defensive and started ranting that customers normally paid for his parking !! I couldn't believe how rude and unprofessional he was ! I have never heard of a in-house service provider not parking his vehicle properly, leaving before the job was completed, then blaming the customer for it.

I was incredulous and called the key service on the spot. The technician then proceeded to start shouting into the phone ! After the technician stomped off, the guy on the phone offered to send someone out for free. I didn't think the whole operation was trustworthy at all, so I turned them down.

Besides the rude behavior above, the locksmith was also an hour late and initially tried to charge me $30 more than I was originally quoted on the phone. Don't let these people into your home - VERY SHADY AND UNPROFESSIONAL !!

Call Locksmith Chicago (773) 728-3842 instead. They are a touch more expensive, but came within an hour, fixed the lock within 5 min, and was courteous & professional throughout.

Crooks, do not use. Charged my wife $175 dollars to open her locked car. I called up later that night to get an estimate to see if she got ripped off and the price quoted was $100. Do not use very shady company.

first, i ask for the price and i get no direct response on the phone. they say it's going to take 30 minutes and they showed up an hour later. i had a class to get to and a quiz to take. he looks at my lock, says it's going to cost me $140 total. it took him 5 minutes to prop the door open and pop it open with a longer version of a flat head screwdriver. i called other locksmiths to get an estimate and they said i definitely got ripped off. DON'T USE THEM!!!!!

Some guy came out in an unmarked van and hammered away at our lock before telling us he could not get the lock open. Once we had a key for the lock it nolonger worked and Olympic Locksmith blamed it on us. These guys are horrible and should not be trusted. Total scam. They said they would bill me for the labor of drilling our lock after they broke it and refused to replace our lock.

I was locked out on my balcony and had to have a neighbor call a locksmith for me. 411 connected them to Olympic Locksmith. Olympic Locksmith said I would have a 20 minute wait. Two hours later, a locksmith shows up in an unmarked van, spends 5 seconds opening my door, and tells me I owe him $150. I've had friends whom have been locked out and were charged under $100 by a locksmith. When I asked for a receipt or work order, he said he didn't have any. I tried getting an explanation from the company by contacting them online. After 2 emails, I have not heard any response. I believe this company is a total scam. Buyer Beware.
