Locksmiths charge absurd rates
The big disadvantage of many locksmiths is that they charge absurdly high rates. They are able to do so because once you need a locksmith, you need one fast. For whatever reason, you can no longer enter your home, and that’s a problem that must be solved quickly. But what is a reasonable rate for a locksmith?
Opening a lock in case of an emergency should only cost €125 during the day, €150 in the evening and €175 during the night or on the weekends, exclusive of parts and additional work. Unfortunately, many locksmiths take advantage of the situation, for example, by charging extra.
