Fast and affordable – these are two words that clients often associate with 6ix Locksmiths. But there is a lot more in store that prospective clients like you can expect.

In terms of expertise, car locksmith services seem to be at the top of their priorities. As a matter of fact, they offer well-rounded services from car key replacement to car key programming.

However, this isn’t the only locksmith service that they specialize in. They also serve residential and commercial customers which make up a large chunk of their clientele. 

Still, the auto locksmith service is just as good as you can imagine. Plus they’re open 24 hours with a fast response time of about 20 to 30 minutes.

Speaking of fast, one of the highlights of their services is their car key replacement. You only have to wait around 20 to 25 minutes before you get copies of your original keys.

And if you’re in a lockout situation, they can make a new set of keys for you on the spot. It’s quite a standard feature today among locksmiths but just know that that’s an option.

Additionally, their car key programming services also deserve a spotlight. With a fast turnaround time of 30 minutes, you don’t have to worry about being locked out in the sun or under a cold night.

Finally, they offer a 3-year warranty on their services with a 100% satisfaction guarantee. In our opinion, they’re a great choice if you’re in an emergency situation anytime, anywhere.

Pros

  • 3-year warranty
  • 24-hour call service
  • Same-day booking available
  • Convenient payment options
  • Faster than average car locksmith services
  • Competitive rates

Cons

  • Relatively less experience with auto locksmith services

Monty’s Car Keys got our attention with its speedy services minus the staggering costs. Let’s talk about a few things that you can expect with this locksmith company.

For starters, they already let us down with its availability as they only operate in set hours. But they made up for this drawback by being among the fastest responders in the city.

At their best, they can arrive at your aid within 45 minutes after your call. In some instances, it may take them up to 2 hours, especially if it’s not an emergency.

What they do best, in our opinion, is their car key replacement service. To give you an idea, it takes them an average of 15 minutes to create and program a fob key.

And of course, we’re very pleased with this fast turnaround time. But we’re even more pleased to find out that the costs are literally half of what the market asks for.

Apart from these things, we also like to highlight how smooth it was to communicate with them. In our experience, we didn’t encounter any issues whatsoever and everyone we met was a delight to talk to.

On the other end of things, just note that this company specializes in high-end cars. We’re talking about BMWs, Bentleys, Audis, and Cadillacs (and only certain car models for each brand).

So, if you own a different type of vehicle, you might want to look somewhere else. But we won’t consider this as their disadvantage because it’s a part of their expertise as locksmiths.

Pros

  • Fast car key replacement service
  • Specializes in high-end cars
  • Specializes in car key services
  • Half the cost versus dealerships
  • Free quote request available
  • Stress-free booking system

Cons

  • Not available 24 hours

If you’re looking for a full-service locksmith, consider Direct Locksmith among your best options. Here are reasons why we think it deserves to be on every car owner’s radar.

First, they’re available 24/7, making them a great choice for emergency services. In line with this, their response time is also immediate with the fastest record at 10 minutes.

Additionally, the speed of their work is also a noteworthy factor. According to some of its customers, they’re up and running in only about 15 minutes upon their arrival.

Second, they can service almost any type of car you can imagine. Looking through their experience, they’ve handled standard Toyotas before and even higher-end cars like Jaguars and Porsches.

Third, if you’re curious about their prices, you can hit them up and request a free estimate. Although based on our research, they’re also significantly cheaper than dealerships which is totally a plus in our book.

Now, its customer service isn’t the absolute worst, but we found a few things that you might want to look out for.

There are certain instances where it’s difficult to get someone online and raise your concerns. Obviously, this is a downside to us because it erases the urgency needed for emergencies.

Moreover, we also came across complaints about the prices. If you were to ask us, they charge at competitive rates – but a few customers have said otherwise.

Nonetheless, totaling all these factors in, Direct Locksmith is still among the city’s very best. Plus, their locksmiths are insured and bonded, so you’ll have better peace of mind in case of unexpected damage.

Pros

  • Available 24/7
  • Immediate response time
  • Free price quote request
  • Serves any type and model of car
  • Generally competitive rates
  • Insured and bonded locksmiths

Cons

  • Issues with customer service
  • Complaints on inconsistent pricing

Integrum Locksmith & Doors may not specialize in car locksmith services alone, but they can rival most companies in the city. 

Like most shops, they’re also available 24/7 for emergency services. A lot of their past customers noted that they respond fast, although we can’t get an exact timeframe for their response time.

If you’re curious, we calculated it at around 20 to 45 minutes. On the other hand, non-emergencies can take roughly around 3 hours on a same-day appointment.

As per their prices, it’s not the cheapest one on our list but still certainly affordable. So far, in their 10 years of business, we’ve encountered zero complaints on the cost and customer service.

Now that we mentioned it, we think Integrum has some of the most responsive teams we’ve met. Booking via phone was hassle-free and a lot of the locksmiths even gave special suggestions on what to do in the future,

Another thing we love is their 100% satisfaction guarantee and extended warranty on all services. We just wish that the terms and length of their warranty were clearer, but we’ll take it for now.

Pros

  • 10 years in business
  • 100% satisfaction guaranteed
  • Extended warranty on all services
  • Average response and repair times
  • Hassle-free booking process

Cons

  • Unclear warranty terms

Customer Reviews

Maple Leaf Locksmith ticks off a lot of the things that we eagerly look for in locksmiths. They’re fast, reliable, and affordable – just with a couple of drawbacks in overall service.

Their car locksmith services are available 24/7. Hit them up and they’ll be in your whereabouts in around 30 minutes.

Although this isn’t the fastest, it’s still within the average time in the city. On top of that, they’ll only need about 10 minutes to produce a new set of keys for you or repair it.

Their lockout service is also among the best we’ve encountered so far. It has a fast response time and a great range of solutions performed in well under 20 minutes.

Speaking of response, we’re big fans of their smooth booking process coupled with approachable staff. If you don’t want the headache of speaking to irate staff, you’ll have a nice experience here.

In terms of pricing, our opinions are a bit divided in half. Overall, we favor its affordable prices with services within the city’s average.

But we don’t like how they don’t honor their quote at times, leading to inconsistency. Some customers were promised cheaper services, only to be denied at the last minute.

On a large scale of things, the issue is a minor speck that you’ll most likely never experience. Just take it as a caution because according to our metrics, the quality of their service is still among the best of the best.

Pros

  •  Available 24/7
  • Specializes in car
  • Fast and affordable prices
  • Efficient solutions readily available on-site
  • Has an inventory of known branded parts

Cons

  • Issues with inconsistent prices
