Lock Prices

How Much Is Emergency Locksmith

In Cardiff, an Emergency Locksmith Can start from as little as £50 to open your door and go up to as far as £175 so we give an average figure of around £90 to open a door. When you are in need of a locksmith in Cardiff there are a few characteristics which can change the price. It is always best to go through in detail of what the locksmith asks you when you call to get accurate pricing. If you decide to give the locksmith false details of how the lock was locked i.e if the door was just shut and left the keys inside or you had physically locked, the door this will almost certainly be a price difference when the locksmith arrives due to different skills and techniques used to open the door. It is always best to give accurate information to the locksmith as you may be unhappy when the locksmith arrives and there being a price alteration. 

The reasoning for Different Locksmith Emergency Prices 

  1. Different type of Lock - There are many different locks on the market no one door is the same to the next in our locksmith experience. 
  2. What Time - Normal operational hours for many jobs are 8 am to 4.30 pm needing a locksmith out of these hours is usually a little more expensive. 
  3. BS (British Standard) - Majority of locks or doors are not British Standard unless there mortice locks. Having a BS Lock is better for your home but does cost a little more to open.
  4. Door Locked or on the Latch - Our locksmiths in Cardiff can open both but a locked door usually takes longer to open and is more secure than a door just on its Latch.&nbsp

Opening a British Standard Lock

Locksmith, Cardiff - British Standard

As in the picture shows a BS lock. We rarely see houses which have paid the extra costs to have these locks installed. When you need a locksmith to come out they take far more time skill and effort to open whether this is non-destructive opening or destructively opening. As in the picture on the bottom right shows a heart-shaped mark this is to clarify the product is made to a British standard. On most locks, the face of the lock usually holds this identity there so you can see it from even when the lock is installed. We have seen some locks were this marking is also hidden from public view which is on the side of the lock. Which would mean only before the lock is installed or after it is taken out can you clarify the lock product is made to British Standard. 



James Cardiff Locksmith Operates on fixed prices for work and very rarely charges hourly rates.
