Q & A

Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Thumbtack.

Can I trust a locksmith?

You can find a trustworthy locksmith with some research. The best way to start is with an online search of top-rated locksmiths near you and read the customer reviews thoroughly. Positive reviews (and ratings) can indicate trustworthiness, but you should also look up the locksmith’s credentials. Many states require locksmiths to be licensed, so look up the rules in your state before you hire anyone.

How much does it cost to have a deadbolt lock installed?

Installing a new deadbolt lock can improve your home security, especially if you think your current lock system has been compromised or there are unaccounted-for copies of your house keys in circulation. A professional locksmith can install a new deadbolt for you in a matter of hours. The national average locksmith price ranges from $70 to $100. Locksmith prices for installing deadbolts may be higher based on whether the professional provides the lock or you have it on hand, how many components the locking system includes, and how long the installation takes. The cost to purchase a lock yourself from a big-box store can range from approximately $70 to $225 or more, depending on quality and materials. Higher-security locks often take longer and therefore cost more to install.

How does a locksmith open a locked door?

Locksmiths use specialized tools and techniques to open your door in the case of lockouts or lost keys. Trained locksmiths can pick your door lock with lock-picking tools such as a rake, a tension wrench, a half diamond or a hook. They may use a technique called bumping, which will work on pin tumbler locks, or as a last resort they may use a drill to remove your existing lock. The national average locksmith price ranges between $70 and $100. A locksmith can also replace your current lock system, re-key your locks if you have lost your keys, repair a broken lock, install a deadlock and more. Locksmiths not only help with front doors, they can help if you are locked out of your car, locked out of your mailbox, locked out of your shed … you name it. There may be an additional charge for emergency after-hours locksmith services. Check out our tips for smart hiring on Thumbtack.

How much does it cost for a car locksmith?

There are several reasons you may need a car locksmith. You may be locked out of your car (either with the keys inside or with no keys at all), you may have lost your car keys and need a new key, or you may want to make a duplicate car key. The national average locksmith price ranges from $70 to $100. Getting locked out of your car can be scary and overwhelming — especially if it’s cold and dark out. Fortunately, professional locksmiths provide round-the-clock assistance to help people in these circumstances.

Car lockouts are one of the main reasons people need a locksmith. Your locksmith’s price can depend on the type of car you have, the time of day (or night) it is, and where you are located. Locksmith pricing may be based on a flat rate, or pricing may be quoted to you after the locksmith determines the circumstances. For example, a flat rate for a car lockout could be $65 for standard vehicles. That price could be higher for after-hours or long-distance service, or service during extreme weather. If you have entirely lost your car keys, a locksmith can make you a new car key, but first they must verify that you are the owner of the car. Locksmiths can even program new car key fobs for you — often at a lower price than a dealership.

How much does it cost to make a new key for a car?

Locksmiths’ prices for making new car keys can vary depending on the make of your car as well as the time of day and location. The national average locksmith price ranges from $70 to $100, but duplicating a key may cost as little as $30, while extraction a key stuck in the ignition, cutting a new key and programming the fob can cost much more.

You might need a new car key if you have lost your key, the key broke in the ignition, the key is bent or damaged, or you just want a duplicate in case of emergency. You can request a duplicate of a key you have on hand, or you can have a new key made or cut if you have lost your original car keys. If you need to replace lost keys, you’ll need to first provide proof that you are the owner of the car along with the vehicle identification number (VIN). If you’re just locked out of your car but don’t need a key made, a locksmith may charge $65 to get you back in. Locksmith car key services are often far more affordable than dealership prices for new keys.

Highly recommend DC Mobile Locksmith. I've never needed a locksmith before so I decided to hire "DC Mobile Locksmith" based on their 5- star reviews and they absolutely lived up to their reputation! Moses arrived within the window of time I was given and he was EXCELLENT, couldn't have had a nicer or more courteous person and extremely professional in his approach. Before he did any work on the door locks, he explained his process and exactly what he was doing. The cost at the end was exactly as it was quoted. I wouldn't think twice about calling DC Mobile Locksmith again. Thanks to this company for a great experience!

This locksmith was unprofessional and a complete no show after a scheduled appointment. On the morning of the appointment, he sent a text saying his truck would not start and “I’m sorry.” He never bothered to try and reschedule or anything.

If you're looking for a professional who knows his "locksmith" stuff Marrio is the guy. He diagnosed the problem immediately and came prepared with the EXACT equipment to fix the job. It took less than 15 minutes. I tested the lock and I'm fully secure. Thank you so much. 👍

Osvaldo was very responsive to my queries and he was able to work around my schedule. I needed a deadbolt and doorknob lock to be rekeyed. Osvaldo was prompt and efficient. His rekeying service came with a warranty, which gave me peace of mind on the quality of the work. I definitely recommend Sentry Locksmith Service.

The most responsive and honest folks out there. They will get back to you quickly and move mountains to make things work for your schedule. Moses is a genuine good guy and knows his stuff. He will show up ahead of the scheduled time and be truthful with what you need. I will deal with DC Mobile Locksmith exclusively from now on and so should you.

VERY HIGHLY RECOMMENDED! DMV Locksmith and Doors responded to my request to change replace 3 locks on my exterior doors within minutes of my launch of the project and was at my home within 30 minutes. He performed the work with ease although there were several issues related to my locks and the function of my doors, and fixed them without blinking. The cost was reasonable and the peace of mind...priceless!!

This company is NOT a locksmith, but an entity that farms the job out to technicians. Someone called me from the company shortly after I posted the job. I asked the gentleman over the phone to have someone arrive at 6:00 and left work early to wait for then”technician”. The technician calls me at 6:00 to tell me he “just received the job from the call center” and would not be here for another 40 minutes because “it is rush hour.” The technician knew absolutely nothing about the job. Don’t waste your time!
