    Service was great. Technician called and said he would be at my home earlier than expected. Reasonable rates for the lock system I had. Saved me over $90.

    John did an excellent job
    My daughter lost one of the keys to her Ford Explorer and her fob was really giving her problems. Affordable Locksmith's came to the vehicle (at no extra charge) and made the key and fobs. John did an excellent job while onsite and I'd definitely recommend him to anyone who needs keys and/or fobs made. An overall great experience!

    If you need a locksmith, affordable locksmith will take care of you. They are efficient, good communicators, dependable, professional, flexible, courteous, gets the job done, and makes sure you are satisfied before they leave. Their pricings are totally reasonable too. We needed to change commercial locks and make several key copies. Not knowing any locksmith I posted on yelp for quotes and Ron was responsive and easy to work with. Alex came to save the day and did an awesome job. Recommending the right approach that worked for us. Thanks guys!

    John did a great job in getting our door at Pizza Shop repaired. He was courteous, friendly, and prompt. John communicated the repairs that were needed and the cause if the issue. If we need a locksmith, we will call Affordable Locksmith again. I recommend John be on the top of anyone's locksmith needs list.

    EXCELLENT LOCKSMITH MR. DANIEL­čść
    Mr. Daniel Cohen was punctual, professional and efficient. He offered me choices of silver or gold lock for lick installations. I was able to call a tenant to see what their color reference was and it was good. Thank you Daniel for sharing this information with me. I will definitely use and refer Daniel again.

    A1 and Alex are great!
    We hired A1 to replace 5 deadbolts and handles in our new house. Alex was great! He fit everything perfect, made any changes that made sure our locks fit. He put in a deadbolt and handle replaced a lock older than 40 years. The price did go higher than what I was quoted, but, they had to do alot of extra work, even with this extra work they were still cheaper than other quotes I received. I will be hiring them again (soon actually, since I have another door he did not replace). Also, Alex is very passionate about locks, he enjoys and collects them as a hobby. So, he is thorough with yours.

    Amazing work, amazing service,
    Before the technician even arrived, I got a call in the morning to confirm my appointment. Once Alex got to my house, I immediately knew I was in good hands. I needed to have locks re-keyed for a new home purchase, a replacement deadbolt, and a security door lock changed. The house is older and gives me plenty of challenges -- locks included. The technician assured me from the moment he arrived that he may be at my home a while, but he'd definitely get everything accomplished -- and he wasn't kidding. Over the course of three hours, he retro-fitted a security door with an exit-safe lock (required by DC for my rental unit), made sure everything fit and closed appropriately, installed a new lock in a space where an old and no-longer-used model had been (which required quite a bit of drilling), FIXED a situation I had assumed was unfixable with what he described as an "un-jimmie-able" lock, and was all around pleasant and wonderful. I can't say for sure what other locksmiths would have charged me for the work, but I feel that every penny spent was worth it for the well-explained, fantastic job he did.

    Project started a little late but I was really happy with the work. The technician was very knowledgeable and we discussed future jobs as well. He even fixed another doorknob in the house that he noticed was was off! Definitely will use them again.

    the final cost was just as they said on the phone
    Amazing! I was locked out of my condo and called Affordable because they are not far from Cleveland Park. I thought it was pretty brilliant that they asked me to send them a picture of the lock when I called for an estimate. They said they could give me a more accurate range of the total cost that way. When the locksmith arrived he popped the lock quickly and the final cost was just as they said on the phone... no surprise charges whatsoever. Fantastic service.

    Fast, efficient and cost-wise very reasonable. The A1 Pro was there within the hour, introduced himself and within 30 minutes completed necessary repairs to our cantankerous door lock. Well done!

    THANK YOU, AFFORDABLE LOCKSMITH!
    Ron was awesome! After receiving a few quotes for a rekey of 6 door locks, Ron was the best price for the best service. He was available the same day and quickly and professionally changed my locks and gave me a lot of valuable information regarding my doors/locks. He even took the time to fix an issue with one of my door frame lock wells free of charge! I was even able to pay with an American Express card. I would highly recommend Ron!

    don't go out of my way to write reviews due to time constraints. But this time, it's a whole different story. Ron took care of me swiftly and with the utmost sincerity. He answered all of my questions regarding locks while my car key was being cut. The whole process took no more than a minute. The best customer service experience I've had in a long time with regards to any service industry. Ron is truly a stand-up guy and I highly recommend getting your Lock Services performed here

    The company provide two car keys for $110. Neither key worked. Notified by text, phone call and through thumbtack. Phone number is now a fast busy signal. + no response. What a scam artist.
    Ron S. Sep 1, 2016

    Hello I have searched our system and I wasn't be able to find your information as our customer. I have sent you a quote for your car keys for $200 but you never responded / hired us to do the job. I am sorry to hear that your keys don't work but unfortunately you didn't hire us to do the job so there is nothing I can do. I would be more than happy to cut & program new keys for you for the same quoted price of $200 Thank you!
