These are all valid questions, and they deserve an honest answer. The truth is that some ‘affordable’ locksmiths do substandard work or install substandard hardware. And quite a few also do substandard work, but will charge outrageous prices anyway. Others will advertise very low service call fees, or even zero service call fees, but still find a way to increase the cost of the work once they arrive at your home or business. It has become a dog-eat-dog society and everybody knows it. But there are a few people, a few companies, who always try to do the right thing and to show respect for the customer– and that’s where I come into the game.
