How Much Does a Locksmith Cost?

The locksmith business is often unfamiliar to the everyday person. Since their services aren’t widely used by many people on a constant basis, they may only learn about locksmiths and their services when they face an issue or compromise in their security, such as lockouts, burglaries, or broken locks. 

This is why many people often search the question of “How much does a locksmith cost?” and attempt to find answers through the sites of available locksmith businesses online. However, there is usually a lot of variety in the prices which locksmiths offer their services for. Each locksmith can offer a range of locks to you depending on where it will be fitted and your preference on the level of security and affordability. Moreover, numerous sites do not publish their exact rates online because they prefer giving quotes after they assess a potential client’s situation.

Here in D&M Locksmiths, we make sure to be absolutely clear with all our customers regarding our pricing systems. On our site, we have a pricing guide that states the usual costs specific services start with. For exact prices, our expert locksmiths talk to customers over the phone to better assess your situation and the services you will need. From there, we give free quotations on the full cost of the service, with the cost of parts, labour, and call-out fees already included.


The costs of locksmith services usually vary depending on the amount and type of work they are asked to do. Generally, they charge for labour plus the parts and components they use in the process. However, many locksmith sites publish their prices only with the costs for parts then surprise you with exorbitant hourly labour costs you weren’t told about beforehand. With most locksmith businesses being independent ones, it’s often difficult to discern which ones are the most reliable.

It’s always a good idea to get an expert locksmith service with a solid track record of having trustworthy services and reviews mentioning reasonable prices. Most of the best locksmiths offer their services at a fixed price quotation, meaning that the price they quote to you is exactly what you need to pay. These already include their labour fees, all the parts they expect to use, and call-out charges, if any.

At D&M Locksmiths, we strive to provide complete transparency for all our locksmith services and aim to give the best prices to all our customers. We do not give exact prices on our website for all our jobs as we aim to give each and every customer the most appropriate pricing for their situation. Instead, you can call us any time of the day to speak directly with our expert locksmiths who will assess your situation and give you a FREE fixed price quotation on the services you need.  To give you an idea, we usually give quotations on our locksmith services around these prices:
