Upco Lock & Safe Service DC
5.0
My interactions with Upco were great; they responded quickly to my request and asked questions by phone to determine how to address the issues with my keys and lock. They diagnosed ahead that it needed re-keying, quoted in advance a clear and reasonable price, arrived on time and even tightened my loose door hinges for no charge, making the door work much more smoothly overall! I would definitely use them again!

Capitol Locksmith Inc.

Erwin was excellent. He changed the locks on 3 doors, rekeyed them, and installed extra security on my patio sliding door. It was a big job that took him more than 3 hours, but he remained professional and courteous throughout and did an excellent job. His prices were also the best that I could find! And, my garage door wasn't properly fitted on the frame, and he offered to take a look at it and fix it for free. Erwin is the best, and he will be my go to for any future locksmith needs!

Leo was GREAT!! We had trouble with the thumb lock on the front door late at night. Keyed In said they would send someone within 30-45 minutes and Leo showed up right on time. He got us into the house and did some diagnostics to figure out the problem as well. He explained the situation clearly, and provided suggested solutions. When we asked him to come back out for an estimate, he was right on time. He also fixed the deadbolts on the front and back doors for free! He will be our go-to guy for any locksmith issues from now on!

The company scheduled me for service immediately. Arrived on time, assessed the scope of the work to be done, and provided a cost estimate before starting the project. The locksmith (Jose) is a total pro. He was pleasant, skilled and efficient and assured that the locks were working to my satisfaction. I highly recommend Upco for any locksmith service.

Trilogy Security Consulting
5.0
LME Locksmiths are true masters within their craft. Our Locksmith professional, Edwin, was quick, courteous and really demonstrated a wealth of knowledge. He walked away having me feel more at ease without coming off as a salesman, but rather as my very own consultant equipped with great customer service. I would and will call them again with my locksmithing needs.
- Timothy J....
Golden Key
5.0
Well I had actually asked him because I had a lock desk and there was no key that I could find for it. So I called this guy and he came over and he gave me a good estimate, I mean he gave me good advice. He said that other than breaking it open there really wasn't any other way to open it. Since he didn't actually do any work for me I can't really grade him but he seemed to be very knowledgeable and competent.

Locksmiths Near You

There 10,000 members of the Associated Locksmiths of America - there might be 20,000 more non-associated locksmiths in the United States.

Follow these locksmith hiring tips to get a lock near you changed for the most reasonable price possible:

1. Ask locksmiths near you about their specialties first

There's quite a bit of competition between locksmiths, which means that many people in this trade have a bad habit of never turning down a job. To make sure that a prospective locksmith is actually qualified to do the work you need done, ask them what their specialty is before you disclose the type of project you want to get done. You can ask this tricky question over the phone, but it's often possible to learn about a locksmith's specialty online through reviews.

2. Licensing, insurance and warranties

A reputable locksmith will be licensed in your state, they will be properly insured, and they'll also warranty their work. If a locksmith can't check all of these boxes, work with someone else.

3. Ask other customers near you about their experience

It's easy to find out if a locksmith you're considering working with has a bad reputation. If a locksmith hesitates to provide you with referrals, they might not be worth working with.

4. Focus on locksmiths nearby with many reviews even in emergencies

There are lead generation services for "guys in trucks" who operate without licenses. These services target homeowners and car owners who need locksmiths quickly. These locksmiths who operate out of their home, garage or truck could drastically raise their prices if they note a high-end car or home as the target of their services. Be aware. You almost never need a locksmith at a convenient time, but even if you're in a rush, it pays to take a moment to consider your options.

How much does it cost to re-key a door?

Typically homeowners pay between $50 to $150 for a locksmith to re-key a door. This includes the typical fees - charges per lock can sometimes exceed $25 per lock.

How much does it cost to have a key made?

Between $1 to $20 for special keys - automotive keys with digital components could cost more than $500. Rather than a locksmith, consider contacting your local hardware store.

What services do locksmiths near you provide?

It can depend, but most residential locksmiths provide one or more of the following services:

  • Re-key Cylinders
  • Brands such as Master Lock
  • Safes
  • Vaults
  • New Keys
  • Padlocks
  • Door Knobs
  • Other Hardware
  • Emergency / 24 Hour Service

How much does emergency service in the evening, on a holiday or during the weekend cost?

Emergency or 24 hour services could cost between $140 to $260.
