Locksmiths in Essex
I called Don Cleary's business to inquire about having my locks changed as I had just moved into my new home. The owner answered the phone and said he would have to call me back because he was in the middle of driving. He never called back. This is unfortunate for him. I took my business to Essex Security Locksmiths instead. I live right around the corner from Don Cleary's but will take future business back to Essex Security Locksmiths from West Orange. They answered the phone right away and were able to come to the house the next day. The gentleman who arrived was quick and efficient...not to mention, he was sure to explain everything he was doing so I could be informed. He answered all of my questions thoroughly.
Mike came by to do an estimate and look at all my vintage doors. 5 doors locks and knobs. He said parts could be ordered and he would send an estimate. Never heard after 7 days so I called Essex and explained. They took my number and I never heard back. So unprofessional. A big job I have and obviously they can't handle it.
I've visited this place twice and say I can say simply that this place is great. I've had to have some keys made, which is I think a common thing we all need, BUT this place is great because they can copy uncommon keys - like for a padlock or a key with an odd layout of the teeth. I went to my local locksmith and he couldn't make one of the keys I needed and he recommended me here, possibly because my local locksmith is rather small. This brings me to my next point, this place is sizeable for for a locksmith shop. The wall is loaded with lots of different keys - for big doors, small doors, safes, gates and more, so chances are if you need a duplicate or specialty lock you could find it here. The couple times I've come here and the guys are real nice here which is always a quick way to get a star or two from me. The final thing that will keep me coming here for my key copying needs is the price. For just a couple bucks and a couple minutes, a key is made with no problem. So it's literally fast friendly service here making having to run an errand such as getting keys that much easier.
This place is great! They know how to get the job done. They have helped me when I was locked in my car. Very nice staff. It means so much when you are working with professional people with a calming personality. I also had keys made, which was right on the spot service.. Very convenient!! Would def. recommend this place to anyone
