    Reliable Locksmith in Forest Park, IL

    Great customer service! I don't know how to thank them enough! Other companies would have made me wait at least for two hours before I could receive service. But General Locksmith Store sent a technician right away when I requested it. The entire key cutting job took barely twenty minutes for Dave. Very helpful and extremely talented! Dave was nice enough to make me a spare key - If i ever need a locksmith again, you bet I'll call General Locksmith Store. And why not? They're the best in Forest Park, IL!

    If I had to sum up my experience with General Locksmith Store in one word, it would be: AWESOME! So, I saw this advert on TV for this high-tech smartphone-operated lock and just couldn't wait to get my hands on it! It worked fine the first few weeks, but then it went dead! Yeah, it went completely dead without even throwing up a warning. I was frustrated, I'd spend nearly $250 on it! The company's warranty claims were all fake and the only choice I had was to pay for the repair myself. I called General Locksmith Store on 708-290-9028 in the hope that they could fix it up. Turns out, it was the cheap battery that came with the lock that had died and he replaced it with a good one. Edward told me he could have installed a similar, but better lock in half the price I'd paid for it! Well, what's done was done.. I'm never buying telly advertised stuff again! Thanks to General Locksmith Store, I didn't have to throw the lock out!!! Will definitely call them in future for suggestions and other lock upgrades! BEST SERVICE in Forest Park, IL! Give it a shot, highly recommend it!

    Excellent experience with General Locksmith Store
    RichardDBeams (12 reviews)

    Ok, General Locksmith Store is awesome! First, Gary arrived when he said he would. Second, he went out of his way to know exactly what I wanted. The last time I hired a locksmith, he didn't even ask me what lock I needed, and installed an expensive one that was pretty useless, as was evident from its deteriorating performance. Fortunately, Gary knew exactly how to fix it and made sure everything worked fine before handing out the bill. Very affordable for such phenomenal services!!! I've already lined up a couple of other jobs for them the next week. Appreciate the service from General Locksmith Store! Number 1 in Forest Park, IL! Don't hesitate, call them up on 708-290-9028. I'm sure you'll not be disappointed!

    Don't pay any attention to any of these reviews. They are all glowing, and none of them quite captures just how amazing the service was from this locksmith. Ben is the f'ing man. I live in Forest Park, IL , he drove to me within 30 minutes of calling at 11pm on a Wednesday night. It took him 7 minutes flat to get my bathroom door open that I stupidly locked myself out of. Polite, professional, courteous, and 10 times a more pleasant experience than visiting my family. If you need a locksmith, call these guys 708-290-9028 !!!!! General Locksmith Store located in Forest Park, IL.
