This can vary; the first hour is often the most expensive as it usually includes the charge for travel, fuel, etc. After that, subsequent hours are often cheaper. So for the first hour, you can expect £60-£100, then £40-£80 for the following hours. After that. “Unless dealing with us.”

Locksmiths Cathays – How much does a new lock and Key cost?

The new lock and key are part of our standard price with Express, to provide locksmith services during regular business hours or emergency out-of-hours work. If you have another door and want the safety changed in addition to what you have called us out for, the additional lock and keys would likely be an additional £25 to £50. Be wary of any cheap emergency locksmiths Cathays Cardiff statements as they will likely hit you with hidden extras.

Is it better to rekey or change the locks?

As with any other mechanical product, locks suffer from wear and tear over time. As a result, they can be less effective also.

For this reason, it is often better to change the lock given the opportunity; this price can often be negligible between rekeying or installing a new lock. This often is the case with locking mechanisms, composite doors and gearboxes also.
