How Much Does a Locksmith Charge to Unlock a Door

Are you wondering how much does a locksmith charge to unlock a door?

Locksmiths are professionals who are trained to make and repair locks. Because of their familiarity with lock-and-key systems, they can also help you unlock doors in the event of emergencies. Their services also extend to helping you regain entry into your locked car and or commercial property. But how much do they charge to unlock doors for you?

Things that affect door unlocking cost

How much you’ll pay is determined by several factors:

Call-out time

If you call out a locksmith outside regular business hours, i.e. typically after 5 PM, you can expect to pay a little bit more.

Type of lock to be unlocked

The complexity of the lock system can also increase the price of unlocking. This is particularly true if you want to unlock say a car. That’s because the locksmith has to ensure that they don’t damage the entire lock system of the property or car.

What else should you consider when you call out a locksmith?

If you’re going to call out a locksmith, you might also want to think about the following:

Key duplication and key cutting

If you only have one set of keys for your house and you’ve locked these keys inside, it might be time to consider getting another set made. Having one set of keys isn’t wise. Once you’ve regained access to your home, you can ask the locksmith if they could duplicate your key so you have a few copies of it.

New door lock installation

Furthermore, if the door system is a bit old, it might be time to simply have the entire system replaced. Talk to your locksmith about this additional service and what products they can install for you. Modernise and upgrade your door lock system.

Additional security features

Perhaps you’ve been meaning to get additional security features such as panic alarms and video surveillance installed. This is the perfect opportunity to do so. Just ask your locksmith technicians what security device options you should install.
