How much does a local Locksmith cost?
The price of a job will depend on various factors. Response time, type of job and required parts are all aspects that will affect the price of a job. Most Locksmith companies will charge for an hourly labour rate which most likely won’t be an all-in price, so you must also consider the price of parts.
It is near impossible to give an exact quote over the phone, as the specific part needed for a job cannot be determined until onsite and different size, makes and models of parts will hold different price points. When calling a Locksmith company, they should be able to give you an estimated quote over the phone and should always be upfront about their pricing.

Choosing the right local Locksmith
The type of service you require will help to define your search for the right local Locksmith. For example, if you require emergency boarding up you will need to find a Locksmith that advertises that service otherwise you could find yourself making multiple calls but not finding someone to help.
Ensure you are choosing a professional Locksmith
The Locksmith industry is unfortunately unregulated; therefore, anyone can advertise themselves as a Locksmith but have no experience at all. These ‘cowboys’ can cause damage to your property as they may not know what they are doing and can leave you in a worse state then where you started.
We recommend having a quick look at the reviews of a company before you give them a call, as reviews are often the best way to understand the quality of a service or product.
Choosing a Locksmith in an Emergency
When you need someone quickly, it is easy to simply call the first number you see. However, it is always best to take a moment to quickly see if the company has any reviews, what their rating is and if they are providing the service you are looking for. By taking just a few seconds to have a look at the company, it can save you the aggravation of calling out someone that can’t do the job or someone that leaves you worse off.

Locksmith was quick, efficient, and personable. I confessed to knowing little about the difference between different locks, but he explained everything as needed and gave advice on any issues with any other doors etc. Would contact The NGCL again if there was a need. Thank you.
Excellent service with knowledgeable staff.
Quick efficient call out for faulty lock on front door. The Locksmith explained and showed me the parts which required replacing. The door was cleaned afterwards & hinges oiled. Very polite man & payment made easily.
