We received great service from John, the locksmith from Global Locksmith Service. We called on a Sunday night for service and John came out on a Tuesday. He was very professional, calling to update me several times on his arrival time. Once he got here, he did a quick walkthrough to look at our doors, told me what he recommended, and gave me an estimate. We decided to proceed immediately and it took less than 30 minutes for all of the locks to be replaced. Bonus is that they all use the same key, so no need to carry around a bunch of different keys. I'd definitely use them again!

I had a simple job (re-keying my home) that needed to bedone. After calling one local locksmith and waiting 24 hours (and counting)without a return call, I found Global Locksmith Service. I spoke to an actual person whosounded professional, scheduled the appointment with just a two-hour timewindow. On the day of the appointment the technician called me, well in advance of the appointment time and then showed up right on time. The technician wasinformative, professional and courteous. Pricing was extremely fair and thewhole experience restored my faith in skilled craftsmen. I now have peace ofmind knowing that no one has keys to my new house. I would recommend Global Locksmith Service to all ofmy friends!

The lock on a door between the house and garage stopped functioning, and we couldn't get the door open. I called Global Locksmith Service to come and fix it, and, later, to re-key it to match our other locks. He did both quickly and professionally. He was very patient in explaining options, making sure that we wanted a lock on that door (apparently, many people don't lock that door, and he wanted to be certain we did before proceeding). He spent a lot of time explaining how the new doorknob works, since it was different than the old one, and why he choose it, and wanted to be sure I knew how to use it.

I called Global Locksmith Service after seeing the reviews on Angie's List. I left a message, and John called me back immediately. We set up a time for the next morning, and he arrived right on time. He came to my home, and drilled out a mailbox lock that I had lost the key to. The lock was quite stubborn, but he persisted, and replaced the lock. He was very courteous and professional. Would definitely highly recommend his services!

It went fantastically. I have a detached garage at the back of my property. The door stopped opening easily over a year ago, but I don't use it for my car, so I made do. Then, my lock stuck and I could no longer even open the door. Nothing I tried worked. It was time to mow the lawn and I couldn't get the mower out! So, I called him on Friday the 16th and he was very patient, curious about my problem and available. He came on time and got right to work on the service date. He removed the old lock and installed a new lock, with a new key. He also fixed another mechanism inside the door that needed to be fixed so the door would open properly and had broken. He also notified me about some other issues inside my garage that would need my attention (not lock related). He explained that the cost would be $40 more for the additional door repair, but his work still beat the other quotes I'd gotten on the lock alone. The door works like new. I'm very pleased and will use him again.

John arrived on time and went right to work in spite of a power outage that lasted through his call. He put a new tumbler in our front door lock, replaced a power room doorknob/lock assembly and repaired the handle mechanism on a set of french doors. He finished in about 2 1/2 hours. I highly recommend Global Locksmith Service!

Had a dead bolt lock in the back door of the residence. The lock assembly had a knob to turn to lock and open the lock. But for some reason all of a sudden the knob would not turn to unlock the lock so the door could be open. There were 2 screws on the lock assembly but I could not remove them because the know was in front of the screws and blocked removal. When John, the technician arrived he used a drill and pliers with step by step process to remove the lock assembly, but the door would still not open for some reason. So he walked with me around the corner and down the alley to come into the back yard. He was able to knock the door open without damaging anything and showed me that the door hinges were coming loose and prevented the door from opening easily. Afterwards I had the hinges installed properly and all works fine now. John was very patient and persistent in getting the job done and giving me advice for the future. He was very pleasant and got the work done.

Couldn't be more pleased with John's work. I called him on Wednesday, he showed up the next day exactly when he said he would. His work was fast, well-done, and well priced. When deciding exactly how we wanted to key the locks and what changes to make he was extremely helpful in recommending an approach, and in making suggestions to save us money.

We were needed to have all 4 of our entry locks rekeyed asap. We called late Thursday evening and he was at our house by 9am the next morning, as promised. Within an hour, all the doors were rekeyed and extra keys were made per our requested. It was less expensive to rekey than to replace the locks.We were very impressed with our encounter with him. We will definitely use him again. What a gem!

We scheduled Global Locksmith Service to re-key our new home on settlement date. Spoke with John on the phone and he was very pleasant and professional. He told me exactly how much each item would cost. He showed up on time and went right to work. He re-keyed our front door. He installed two deadbolts in doors that did not have them previously, and gave us 5 keys. He re-keyed all of the locks to use the same key. He re-keyed our mailbox key and gave us 3 keys to fit. He was fast and courteous and very professional.

I called for an estimate on having two new deadbolts installed and all of my existing locks rekeyed. I made an appointment for the upcoming Saturday for between 9 and 10 am. I received a call at 8:30 am Saturday to confirm and was told the locksmith would arrive within an hour. The locksmith (John) showed up right around 9 am, introduced himself, asked for a rundown of the work to be done and immediately got to work. He completed the installs and rekeys in very short order, inspected my existing locks and cleaned up. The new locks function perfectly, the old locks function better than before and the work areas looked like he was never there. I highly recommend Global Locksmith Service for any locksmith needs you may have. John provided excellent, on-time, courteous service, and the office provided excellent communication. The price I received was even a little less than I was estimated. I was extremely happy with their services and I'd bet you will be too. Companies with this level of customer service are very hard to come by, don't hesitate to book them for any of your locksmith needs.

This was an emergency situation where my wife's purse with keys inside was stolen. We needed to change the locks immediately. The locksmith answered my call at 8 pm and because he was driving asked to call back in a few minutes. He attempted to return my call at least twice while I was on the phone with the credit card companies and finally reached me some 30 minutes later. Kudos for the extra effort to get back to me. He came out early the following morning and rekeyed all the locks (8). He was prompt, professional and helpful, and the price for emergency service was excellent. I would definitely use them again.

I needed a locksmith quickly to rekey all my doors. I called Global Locksmith Service after getting the contact from Angie's list. John responded right away, I explained my problem and he told me he is going to another job and he will call me when he is done. He call me within an hour and was at my house within 15 minutes. I explained what I wanted, which was to rekey all my doors and preferably to use the same key for all doors, he looked around and informed me due the kind of locks that I have, it can't be done but he was able to make two of the doors the same. He did his job quickly and professionally and gave me two sets of keys for my doors. I was very impressed on how efficiently and professional John was. In less than 45 minutes all my locks were changed and I had a peace of mind. In addition, he explain to me what to do in an event I am locked out I will definitely use Global Locksmith Service again if the need arises.

Overall, our experience was great. John is indeed a skilled professional who is very conscientious. His prices are excellent and I would highly recommend him. I contacted John after finding him on Angie's List and reading the excellent reviews. He responded in a timely way to my emails and I also was able to reach him easily by phone. John was able to arrive a little earlier than the original time frame he had given me and he called to see if that would work for me. We agreed that was fine and he told me the approximate time of his arrival.He rekeyed 6 locks, some old and some fairly recent. We were very happy with his work.

Global Locksmith Service was great. I just moved into a new house and needed to have the locks rekeyed. I submitted requests for information/estimates to two locksmith companies on Angie's List. John from Global Locksmith Service called me within a few hours of the request for information and came out to do an estimate a few hours later.I never heard back from the other company. John came out and offered me a 15% discount for being an Angie's List referral. He did an estimate and then offered an additional discount since I already had the master lock. He installed this for "free" so my bill was reduced from around $300 to $220. What makes this experience go above and beyond is that John needed to change the cylinder on one of my locks but we didn't have the keys. My real estate agent, in Luther Village, had the keys.John went to Luther Village to pick up the keys from him and was able to complete the job. There was no additional charge for this trip out there. John was very knowledgeable, professional, and punctual. I would definitely recommend them for your locksmith needs.

Excellent work! John called me before he came, came on time, was very helpful with his advice on what I needed, and in a short time did a great job! He gave me 2 estimates, one to fix the old lock and one to replace lock with a safer, better quality lock. I will recommend this company and will definitely use them again. I joined Angie's List today to find a locksmith and I'm very glad I did. I needed someone to come today, a Sunday, and other companies listed are closed on Sunday.
