    I had an interview to attend in an hour and from the point of calling Safe & Key Shop to the point where the locksmith opened up my locked car, it only took a total of 30 minutes. Couldn't be more pleased! I made it to the interview and nailed it! Wouldn't have been possible without you guys! Thanks for doing an excellent job! Check out their website they do a lot more than resolving lockouts. Definitely, saving their number on speed dial, in case fate decides to mess things up for me again!

    It was around 11 pm, but I figured it shouldn't be a problem since several locksmiths claim to offer 24/7 service. Despite calling countless locksmiths to get to my place and fix the door, none of them turned up! Safe & Key Shop was the only company in Chicago, IL that responded to my call and sent a technician to my place at once. I've saved their number 312-288-7596 so that in future I don't end up sifting through other numbers before finding the right one! Safe & Key Shop is undeniably the BEST!!

    I don't usually write reviews, but there's a first time for everything. Carried away by all the sweet talk from the guy at the local locksmith shop, I was coerced into buying a brand new smart lock. All my neighbors had it and I just didn't wanna be the ‘outdated' guy! Within two weeks, the lock stopped working and there I was, left locked outside my own home. I decided to call the shop that had sold me the useless lock in the first place, but they were closed for the day. An online search for a 24-hour locksmith in Chicago, IL led me to and to this day, I'm glad I found these guys. Within ten minutes, Dave was over at my place scrutinizing the lock. When he found that I'd paid $200, he told me that the lock wasn't even worth $20. I must admit, I felt stupid at that point for investing my money in the wrong place. But Dave set things right, switched locks with a better one that didn't even cost me half as much as the previous one. Wish I'd found you guys sooner. Safe & Key Shop is awesome!!

    Ok, here it goes - my first ever positive experience with a locksmith! Locksmiths have quite a notorious reputation for being absurdly expensive and I'd fallen victim to quite a lot of these unscrupulous agencies in the past! So when I found Safe & Key Shop I simply felt compelled to write this review! These guys are pure gold! Upfront pricing, extremely talented technicians, 24/7 service, and completely reliable! They've been there for help right when I needed them, and the prices are a quarter of what other firms charge! they've also got coupons to further bring down the prices! AWESOME!!! Definitely, my go-to locksmith in Chicago, IL!

    After a hectic day at office, I reached home only to realize that I left my keys at my office. It was an hour's journey back to office and I couldn't make it as it was already 10.30pm. I called Jerry at 312-288-7596 who got there in about ten minutes. I was so relieved! It just took him a few minutes as he had all the necessary equipment to get the job done. His charges were really considerable. He didn't ask for an extra dollar, despite the fact that it was late night. Since then I've recommended Safe & Key Shop to several people in Chicago, IL. If you need reliable services, Safe & Key Shop is your best bet.

    Here's a lesson or two other locksmiths could learn from Safe & Key Shop. First, you never make a customer wait, especially not in an emergency! It took Carl from Safe & Key Shop just about ten minutes to get to my location. Awesome, right? Second, you shouldn't overcharge them! We're not stupid! We know that the service you've just provided isn't worth even half of what you've just charged, yet, the attempt to rip us off always prevails. Thankfully, with Safe & Key Shop I didn't have to face all that! No hidden fees, no lame extra charges, nothing! Just an upfront flat rate! How great is that? I don't know about others, but speaking from experience, I don't think there's a better locksmith company in Chicago, IL than Safe & Key Shop. I've even put down their number 312-288-7596 on my contacts, just in case!!! FANTASTIC SERVICES!!!

    I still had these conventional locks in my home, when all my neighbors had upgraded to newer versions. So, I figured it was time for a replacement and called Safe & Key Shop based on the recommendations of Jeff from next door! Reviews aren't my specialty, but here's a bad attempt at reviewing a great company: Reliability: 10/10 - technician got there right on time Work: 10/10 - Installation barely took him minutes Quality: 10/10 - Lock installed was sourced from a top manufacturer Price: 10/10 - Best price on the lock, low call-out fee and no added charges To be honest, I couldn't find a flaw and hence the ten on ten rating. Hope this review helps someone who's still struggling to find a good locksmith in Chicago, IL. Don't think twice, call Safe & Key Shop up on 312-288-7596! Definitely, THE BEST!

    "I called up Safe & Key Shop to take a look at my malfunctioning lock. Here's my take on them: Response time: Quick. The technician got there in about fifteen minutes after placing the call Quality: Well, John fixed it in minutes and I haven't faced trouble with it ever since, so yes, he did a really good job. Price point: This is where Safe & Key Shop shines! Rates are really low and are easily the lowest in Chicago, IL. I know this because I've tried out nearly all other locksmiths in the area. My verdict: Thumbs-up!!! Will definitely call them again and recommend the same to all!"

    Somehow, the replacement key I'd got managed to break in about two weeks. The worst part was that it just didn't break at some random place, it broke inside the lock. So now there were pieces of the key stuck in the lock which made it impossible for me to operate it with the spare I had. I called Safe & Key Shop on 312-288-7596! They were about the only ones who were open late at night, according to my neighbor. And sure enough, a rep answered my call and assured me of sending help right away. Within minutes, there was a locksmith at my doorstep. David was careful not to damage the lock while he extracted the broken pieces. He took one look at it and asked me if I'd got it made at a hardware shop. I did, yes, but how did he know that? Apparently, such stores use low-grade material and improper techniques to cut keys, hence, the absurdly short life. David got a new key made right there and I could definitely make out the difference in terms of quality. To my surprise, all this cost me less than what I'd paid at the store - . Thank you guys for doing incredible work in Chicago, IL! I recommend Safe & Key Shop to everyone who doesn't want to get ripped off in exchange for quality services. These guys from Safe & Key Shop truly deserve all the praise..

    Amazing work! Thank you so much! 10/10 for providing outstanding services in Chicago, IL! Eric managed to fix the lock in a trice and recommended that I change it for good measure.

If I ever need a locksmith again, I'm calling 312-288-7596 right away! That's the only number I'll ever need for locksmith help! Try them out, they're just incredible!

    Amazing! Henrry set me up with a new lock when I needed it most: Top lock stuck and main lock falling apart, and the super was supposed to have it fixed today, but never showed. I was in a bad place and Henrry came through. On the phone, he listened to me and quoted me accurately and clearly. Once he came in the apartment, it was clear the right man had showed up. In less than a minute Henrry told me the problem, solution, and cost. Henrry is about authentically warm and honest a guy as I've ever met. I am really happy I went with Safe & Key Shop ! they know what they doing call them at any time: 312-288-7596.

    "Thanks Safe & Key Shop ! The man has glowing reviews for a reason - because his service is professional, efficient & on-top-of-it. This was one of the only sites that quotes prices upfront - check. Dan presented options w/ no pressure - check. He does the job w/ a smile & a sense of humor - check. The service is top notch & that's what what matters the most. I will recommend Safe & Key Shop to anyone and everyone. Dan has a wide range of locks and will explain the differences in price points and features -- it's up to you to pick the one you want. I ended up with the deadbolt for the simple fact that I can take it with me.Thank you Safe & Key Shop. "
