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 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.

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.

They contacted me right away which was very important to me because I wanted the job to be done as soon as possible. The locksmith came in less than an hour. He even charged me less than the original quote because he didn’t have to replace the actual lock. The locksmith also gave me different options once he assessed the situation in person. They are great. I would recommend them to anyone.

Max at LSS Locksmith was prompt and professional. He responded immediately to my request for a duplicate car key and arrived within the promised half hour. He cut and programmed the key in about a 1/2 hour. All in all 👍🏽👍🏽

On trade skills, Guillermo has the knowhow, taking the time to explain lock mechanism and making sure there were no loose ends before leaving. On price, he gave me a straightforward quote and did not hesitate to explain item pricing. On professionalism, he assured me that he abides by the standards expected of him on matters of trust, which locksmiths I had hired previously had breached without reserve. Written communication did not seem to bother him at all; not all tradesmen do. *UPDATE 03Jun2019: One star on professionalism that reflects my most important experience on this specific job and eclipses his excellent locksmith qualifications and know how. Caveat Emptor. Trust was violated; went out for a couple of hours for the first time two weeks after lock change and my apartment was burglarized once again with no sign of forced entry. I paid $325 for nothing. Sent locksmith a message but he did not respond. Can’t I ever find any trustworthy locksmith in Miami and South Florida? On responsiveness, he seems to check his messages frequently; he returned my messages promptly. He was patient as we discussed my security concerns and whatnot. On promptness, a few minutes late can perhaps be considered prompt, what with the traffic situation in Kendall. He called on his way to let me know.

If you are looking for a Good locksmith, I Highly recommend this company. I really appreciate Ramses's professionalism and great work. I change my old "conventiona" lock for a Smart one. He took his time to download the app on my phone and explain to me how it works.

Contacted Sam’s Locksmith to request repair of a lock. I was put in touch with Leo who asked me to send a picture and to describe the issue with the lock. A time was scheduled. When he arrived, Leo told me what the problem was and repaired the lock. He worked efficiently and provided an invoice when the job was completed.

Received response to Thumbtack.com query within 10-15 minutes. My request was assigned to a locksmith, Jorge, who promptly called, said he would arrive in 30 minutes and did. He was able to replace the doorknob and lockset in less than 25 minutes. Excellent price. Very pleased. Definitely would recommend.

Rich was very responsive and completed the job with ease. Quality and efficiency was top notch. You can tell he has years of experience when it comes to door locks. He replaced 2 smart locks and deadbolts and even fix the side of the door at no extra charge so it could close more smoother. Highly recommend for your locksmith needs.

Over the years I have had many experiences with locksmiths from living in apartments, buying a home, moving and buying a home again. I have never come across any one as professional, respectful, considerate, empathetic and hard working as Ramsesses. I had a emergency where my 90 year old grandma was locked out of her bedroom. The apartment manager was not responding. Because I live an hour away, I called Ramses late at night and he was already home and finished with his day. He could have told me to call someone else. However, he heard the worry in my voice, got in his car and drove all the way there. His patience, calm demeanor and professionalism while doing the job was outstanding. I would highly recommend Locksmith Today. It’s rare to find good, honest, hardworking people like this these days.

Max is awesome!! He was very responsive and came when he said he would. He fixed the problem the same day and then Came back the following day and replaced my entire locking system for a permanent fix. I called him again a couple of days later after misplacing my car keys and he came the day before thanksgiving and made me a copy of my car keys. He is our locksmith from now on and I will call him for all of our needs :) I would recommend him to any and everyone!
