How much will a locksmith charge me to repair my car’s lock?

Locksmiths have no government licensing in the UK; this means that a locksmith can charge you whatever they feel they deserve for a job done. All locksmiths have no price structure to abide by. 

We suggest you get up to three quotes from an auto locksmith close to you. 

Be wary of fake locksmiths

Be wary of any locksmith that offers you a cheap service call. There has been an increased number of scammers claiming to be professional locksmiths lately. They always put up prices that are unbelievably cheaper than what a licensed locksmith will charge. 

And if you call them to repair a lock, you will discover that they do not have proper training, knowledge and experience to do a good job. Also, they most likely will not give you a fixed charge to fix the lock. Because locksmiths have no government licensing, they might use that to try and charge you over the hill.

Never contact a locksmith who does not give you a fixed price on the phone and wants to charge you a considerable amount of money just for calling them out to come to have a look. If any so-called auto locksmith charges you ridiculously for callout, ask them for their registered company name or ABN, and they’ll likely hang up on you.
