When I locked myself out of my car I called those guys. Ben came 15 min after I made the call. That’s very fast, especially at 1:00 am. Ben was very efficient and professional. He even got me a new ignition key and remote. The customer service was awesome and I would definitely recommend this company.

Thanks Ben and thanks Metro Local Locksmith.

Great service! They responded extremely quickly to change the locks in my apartment. I had to get to work, and they were there and done before I even had to leave. Reasonable prices as well. They were even super friendly to my cats! 🙂 I would definitely recommend them!

These guys were terrific. I was moving into a new apartment and needed a security gate on the fire escape window. They came out the day I called to measure and were back a week later to install the gate. The whole process was stress free. Jonathan was easy and pleasant to work with. They really couldn’t be nicer. The gate itself is really nice and easy to operate. Definitely a step up from the security gates in my previous apartment.

Our Philosophy of Service

Why we do what we do

The locksmith industry in America, and in particular, New York City, has a very bad reputation, and not without good reason. There’s a lot of misleading information and not-so-honest marketing techniques going around out there by dishonest companies. On one hand, a lot of these companies or dispatch centers will tell you exactly what you want to hear on the phone, while on the other hand, those same companies will do the exact opposite of what was agreed upon when they arrive for help. Those companies will use the old bait and switch method by letting a customer think a specific service will cost a certain amount while actually charging seven or eight times more. It is a truly reprehensible tactic, but that’s becoming the standard in the industry today.

When I first started in this industry, I worked for a locksmith company who implemented these dirty methods. This company would quote a costumer an intentionally low price on the phone, a price they had no intention to honor, and would then order the technician to hike up the price on site as high as possible. It did not take long before I understood what type of people I was working for, and decided to go out on my own and establish a brand that was unlike those other companies – Metro Local Locksmith.

Metro Local Locksmith is a collaboration of vibrant, young and energetic professionals who share the same ideas, beliefs and values – that there is a better, more honest and cleaner way to do business while being a local locksmith in New York City. This is why Metro Locksmith came to be, and why our Yelp reviews are amazing, with a 5 star average across the board, proving that we do as we say, 100% of the time, day in and day out!

We believe in transparency and clarity with our costumers. As far as I’m concerned, it’s our core value. We believe that a FULL price for a specific job, project or service should be given prior to the job being done. We believe a locksmith company should have clear prices for cut-clean services on its Website, and that if a price can’t be given over the phone, a general price that is close to reality should be given instead. We believe there is no room for ‘beginning prices’, ‘minimum prices’, or an asterisk next to any service on a ‘price list’, with a fine print so minuscule and hidden, most customers will never even see it. We grew sick of those scams and dodgy techniques. We believe in a different approach towards locksmithing and security services – you don’t have to pay an arm and a leg in order to get quality, professional and courteous locksmith service.

When it comes to prices we are definitely not the cheapest locksmith company out there, but I promise you this, we’re not the most expensive company either. What sets us apart, and what makes us different, is that with us, you will know what you get every single time. If you’re looking for the cheapest service, Metro Local Locksmith is not the best solution for you.  If honesty, quality, fair prices, and great craftsmanship are a priority for you, then you have come to the right place at Metro Local Locksmith.

We will answer all of your questions patiently and with respect. We’ll email you an estimate or order your parts as soon as we can, as fast as humanly possible. The idea is actually very simple – we’d like to treat you the way you would like to be treated yourself, because we expect others to treat us with the same respect and honesty that we’ve become accustomed to. These are some of the very basic elements of decent human behavior we seem to have lost along the way.  We won’t lose track of what is important, and we won’t get blindsided by money as we grow bigger and bigger with more and more corporate accounts and new clients.  We won’t forget WHY we started Metro Local Locksmith to begin with – because we wanted to make a difference, and because we wanted to prove that there is another way it can be done – honestly, with quality parts, fair prices, and great customer service, the Metro Local Locksmith way.

If you’re a likeminded person, we invite you to join in on the fun.
