First of all, the price depends on the details of your situation. You may call a locksmith for one type of service, but eventually, it turns out that you need something else or something more. Some locks are more expensive to repair or replace than others. Some keys are more expensive to produce than others, etc. Another critical factor that affects the price is the time when you need help and your location. Needless to say that after-hours services will cost you more. But there are situations where you can’t help but call for help because the issue simply needs to be fixed. Also, if it takes a lot of time to reach you, the price will be higher.
