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.

Asked for a locksmith to come out because I was locked out of the house. Was told that there is $19 service charge, and then the price for getting into a house *starts* at $35 - no further explanation on the website or when I made the appointment. I thought it was a fairly straight forward thing. When the locksmith got there, he told me the price was $135! It seems like they really have you over a barrell at that point because they're there and you're locked out. It seems to me intentionally misleading. I asked him why it said $35 on the website and he said that's for a padlock! Who uses a padlock to lock their house? I had bought my own locksets from Home Depot to change the locks myself, which I told the locksmith. He couldn't get the locks open with his lock picking instruments, so he just drilled through the locks and destroyed them. I could have done that myself. Thanks a lot. Rip off. The only reason this is not a one-star review is because the locksmith was there right on time.

The tech was professional, on time and fixed our locks with ease. I was very pleased with his services and his prices were very fair. Schott was friendly and very nice to talk to. I have used several locksmiths as a property manager, but I would highly recommend Schott and Son, and will use him again.

Company called almost immediately after I placed my request on Thumbtack and scheduled the work for the same evening even though it was not an emergency. Easy to work with and professional. I was having a deadbolt lock installed and had the wrong parts on hand. The locksmith even went out of his way to get the right parts for no additional charge! I would definitely use this company again!

Locksmith’s on duty responded on a Sunday evening after I exhausted myself trying to install deadbolt locks on my own unsuccessfully. They responded within 5 minutes of my inquiry and installed locks within 24 hours of my request. They also accommodated me when I was running late. Alex took his time and explained to me how to use the smart locks and was patient to let me test them out before he left. The service I received was absolutely exceptional. Alex even showed me in the manual how to change the code myself and also how to replace the battery. Their prices were fair and about 40% less than what I was quoted by another contractor. You can’t go wrong using Locksmiths on duty!!
