Getting locked out of the house or the office can be a nightmare, but with an efficient locksmith service provider, the nightmare can be over as quickly as it started. The cost of using the services of a locksmith can vary depending on the time of day and the service that needs to be provided so bear in mind that there are time schedules that revolve around certain price estimations. For example, during normal business hours, it can cost around £65 an hour, but the price could come down after the first hour or if there is a few hours of work to be done. After hours could go up to £150.
Pricing you need to consider
When needing to have a door unlocked, you should look at the following list of things that might affect the cost of hiring a locksmith to unlock the door:
- Time of day can affect the call out fee. Business hours, services after 8 pm and services after midnight all have their own prices and depend on the service that needs to be provided.
- Repairing the damage of the door left behind after trying to open it will depend on the amount of damage. Do you need just a new lock or do you also need a brand new door?
- Do you need a new set of keys made? A key that is lost or broken off inside the locking mechanism will need to be replaced and the type of key will also need to be added to the cost. A new lock or bolt might be required if the locksmith does not have the key and these will all be additional charges over and above the cost of the services rendered.
- If you are locked out of your car and need help getting in you might need to think about getting a new set of keys, as well as a central security system, once your new locks have been installed.
