this locksmith is a complete scam. I would not recommend using this company.

.

These guys were close by and i had none others who have used them..

First they gave me a quote, upon research i realized i could buy the lock on line for 400 bucks (meaning they could buy the lock whole sale for 250 when i called the manufacture) they wanted to charge me 750 for the lock and installation... so 500 bucks to instal a lock that takes no more than a 1.5 hrs to install??? i was in a jam and need the work fast.
They came down on the price when i told them my findings.
FIrst they installed the wrong lock, then the battery died a few days later which locked me out of my office
Second they are being very unhelpful. Not calling me back, leaving me to do all the research on the lock i originally ordered... at this point i know more about this lock system then they do

They are being very difficult on the phone and straight up rude, like this was my fault

Meanwhile i am 1500 bucks out of pocket, with locks i do not want and loosing business cuz i cant get into my office
Also i have spent hours on the phone researching and calling them along with manufactures and other lock dealers
Yah 30 yrs in biz.. but stuck in time... prices are high, service is grumpy and poor, over all a bad experience.
I would take my money else where.

Pros: they were close by

Cons: poor customer service- lack of corporation- over priced!

.

Quoted the cheapest price possible when I spoke to them on the phone about getting keys made and then raised the price by $3 per key when I walked through the door. Also made inappropriate comments about my looks (I was a "cute girl"). I would not want them installing a lock on my door, and I was happy to leave.

Pros: Had no opportunity to find out

Cons: Rude and inappropriate

I came in to get a key copied (Lockwood)- I've had previous bad experiences with other locksmiths had given me bad copies that would not work. I told the man at the counter that I've had issues with getting copies made and he told me that it was hard to copy b/c most places don't carry the right 'blanks'... went home, tried the copy they made, and it fit just like the original. These guys know their stuff cold - and I'll keep going to them from now on. I highly recommend them.

My building had a break in and I realized I needed to upgrade my door's lock. Irvin and Rob were professional, fast, and gracious. They installed a top-grade lock and full-length pry bars, and explained to me why this combination was the best in protection. I had been considering window protection as well, and they told me why simple 2 x 4 planks would work as well as any other method. I love my new door lock and am grateful every time I leave the apartment that I finally feel secure. Highly, highly recommended!

I called Monkeys when I inherited an old steamer trunk that had been locked without a key. Jeff & Izzy were really great. They spent all the time necessary to open the trunk and fashion a key just because they were personally interested in the project. In addition, the price was extremely reasonable for the effort. I would call them again!

I moved into a new apartment and decided to change my locks. I spoke to Jeff and he quoted me a very fair price for changing two locks. He made himself available to fit my schedule (after work). Friendly, professional and courteous. He showed up on time and finished the job quickly. I highly recommend his services.

We needed to unlock a door in our office. The locksmith got here unbelievably fast and had unlocked the door in no time. He charged $75 + tax and told us a little about the locks (apparently they are high quality, which is why we were unable to pick the lock ourselves). We received quick, very friendly service and I would definitely call them again. They do not take advantage of people in a bind by overchargubg . Thank you!

Locked out of my apartment, I called a random locksmith. That locksmith broke entire mortise lock body to open my apartment door (in addition to the lock itself), charged me $200 and tried to sell me a replacement for a fortune. Other locksmiths told me I had to replace the entire mortise lock body for about $60-$120 plus $150-$200 for installation - not to mention cut my metal apartment door since todays standard mortise lock bodies dont fit.

However, Jeff fixed my old mortise body lock for $60 and told me how to install it myself. He also told me that a typical lockout should cost $75-$95 (instead of $200, although scam jobs are common).

Jeff was honest, fair, professional, took pride in his work - a little rough around the edges, very blue collar NYC and proud of it. Very refreshing in comparison with all the money grubbers here.
