"Daniel is great. This is the second time in the many years I have been living here that I have locked myself out of my apartment. The first time, I called an awful locksmith and they gave me a flat fee of $89. They came to my apartment, told me I had a high security locked and it was more expensive, tried to pick it, then told me they had to drill it because they couldn't get it opened and it was going to be wayyyyyyy more (in the $300 to drill and put a new lock on). Luckily, I wasn't in dire need of getting in and could wait a few hours for the building manager.
So this time, I was super worried about getting a locksmith, but luckily Daniel responded to my quote on Thumbtack. He offered to waive the service call because he couldn't give me a price without seeing the locks. Since I really needed to get in, I told him to come. He was so nice, on time, and explained everything. He gave me a really fair price and guess what, told me its not high security and its pickable! 10 mins later Daniel picks the lock and I am inside my apartment.
Watch out for locksmith quoting flat prices without seeing the locks! Daniel is honest, knows his stuff, and is very reasonable. Very professional and definitely recommend to ALL"
