I had recently moved into a new place in Forest Hills and needed to have my locks changed. I initially reached out to Abba's Locksmith through Yelp, and received a prompt message from the owner Riaz discussing what was needed. I sent him a picture of my door locks and he was able to give me a couple of lock options and quotes for each option immediately. We confirmed date/time, which was on a Sunday evening and I was pleasantly surprised when Riaz arrived on time. I'm always so use to the "Your tech will arrive between the hours of 1pm-5pm", and was thinking this would be another one of those situations where I'd have to wait long for them to arrive (stupid Time Warner). I was wrong. Riaz was courteous, knowledgeable and very quick. In addition to changing my locks, he helped with securing my loose knob and pointed out to me that one of the springs inside my door was broken which is something my management co. would need to change. All in all, the appointment took about 30mins. Prices were fair, and I gave additional tip to Riaz for being an all around swell guy. I would recommend Abba's (and Riaz) to anyone in the Queens area.
This locksmith is a real pro. I tried finding someone off of google and was redirected through a chain of lead gen companies that farm out the job to random "locksmiths" on the road. My first failed attempt with one of the lead gen locksmiths was a disaster. Not only did they charge me for coming by to tell me they couldn't do the work (install electronic latch lock on a mortise door), they tried pawning me off to another colleague if theirs, who told me it was "impossible." I was defeated and decided to try one more call. I was lucky enough to reach Abba's locksmith. Their team knew exactly what I needed, game me a next day appointment, and did the job professionally. When there was a loose screw a few days later, they came back and tightened up the job at no additional cost. Real pros guarantee their work, like Abba's.
Great service! I called Abba's Locksmith and was able to come out the same day to rekey all the locks on my house. The locksmith was prompt and professional, and I felt the price was fair. The whole rekeying process was very quick too! I totally recommend Abba's Locksmith to others who are searching for an efficient, fair, and professional locksmith. Thanks!
I called for a locksmith. I think most of the locksmiths are affiliated with different Hardware companies? But really not sure. Anyhow, I called, had a guy out to my place within 45mins, and fixed my lock. Very pleasant guy and efficient .
Whenever I write a review on Yelp it is either they suck or they are world class professionals! Obviously with the 5 stars you can see these guys are fantastic! I lost my keys for my storage unit and needed a locksmith. Googled and did some Yelp reviews and came across Abbas locksmith. Very professional, quick and the best thing was they didn't rip me off. In fact my storage unit later told me that this locksmith is who they recommend because they are fair and professional. There are lots of shady people and businesses in NYC. But I would highly recommend these guys! Call them first!!!
It is so rare to experience old school neighborhood customer service. It was like we knew each other. Robert and Omar are like that at our first meeting. Omar recognized my voice from over the phone and remembered what I wanted the next day when showed up. They are open on Sundays and cut MEDECO keys. You can't get MEDECO keys at home Depot. They guarantee their work. Support this neighboorhood Locksmith.
Highly recommend Omar and his company for any of your locksmith needs. Ordered a commerical push bar mechasim for my main lobby door and Omar was able to install it with ease. The looks looks great and works even better. They even sent a tech to help with an issue that developed after the install, no questions asked. Great company, great staff.
What a great experience with Omar from Abbas Locksmith. I recently moved and needed to replace my door to a heavier more secure door and have high security locks installed because i always feel your door/locks need to be protect you from any possibility of crazy people in the world entering. Omar was so knowledgeable and walked me through a few options for both the doors and locks. He was very friendly and offered the perfect choice for my needs for both my front door, back door. We scheduled an installation date and the service was done efficiently and in a timely manner. I now have the peace of mind i need and would recommend Abbas Locksmith to any and everyone. Chose them you wont be disappointed.
Update: owners of this place contacted me right away to make this situation better. He said he would return my money but I told him I don't want it back as they did the work. He said he would come out today to see if he can finish the job. I was going to update it after his work today but I just really appreciate that the owner was very involved and honest with me. Anyone who is looking to get good courteous and professional service should follow Riaz and see how he deals with his customers to keep them for the long run. Abbas locksmith responded the fastest with a quote and schedule so I decided to use them for my installation. The owner messaged me a price after I had told him my door was metal and I wanted to install electronic lock and new door knob. I had told him that tbere will need to be new holes drilled, if not i could have done it myself. I asked him if the total was without tax, which he told me it was so I had went and grabbed exactly that plus 20 for tip. He told me that he would come around 730 or 8 same day but ended up sending one of his technicians instead because he was tired and wanted to do a good job on my door. Understandable but since I won't be home the next day I asked him for his technician. The technician showed up 30 minutes later than promised. He came and dropped his tools everywhere on my hardwood floor and left scratches. He kept saying how tough this job is etc etc. He threw around my new locks that I had purchased enough to worry me. Then he told me that the door knob was completely wrong set and said he couldn't do it. He wasn't...
