It’s the age-old question – ‘How much will it cost?’ Unfortunately, it’s not a straightforward answer. The cost of hiring a Locksmith is really dependent on the type of work you need done, the day of the week, the time of day and the complexity of the job.
People are sometimes hesitant to call a professional locksmith as they assume it will be costly but getting it done right the first time will save you money. Our locksmiths are MLAA (Master Locksmith Association of Australasia) tested and endorsed – no lock will be too challenging.

Local Locksmiths – Word of Advice
If you’re faced with a situation that requires a locksmith – call a locksmith in your local area or city. Travel time may factor into the cost and you could find yourself paying a higher call out rate.
A pro tip is to check that the Locksmith is, in fact, based in or near your local area and not just advertising in it. Our service is based in Collingwood and we service Melbourne areas such as Abbotsford, Fitzroy, Carlton, Northcote, Richmond, Coburg, Preston, Brunswick, Melbourne CBD, North Melbourne, and South Melbourne.
Emergencies often happen outside of the ordinary working day – an emergency locksmith will charge a higher call out rate if it is after hours or on a weekend. However, the time it takes for a professional and well-equipped locksmith to ‘save the day’ will be worth it.
If you are calling an emergency locksmith, here’s a quick checklist of thing to look for:
- MLAA Certification
- Business registration (scam businesses exist and have untrained locksmiths on call)
Type of Product/Lock
Some locks are easier to work with than others. The more skilled the locksmith the better. We can provide emergency key cutting, lock repair, re-entry, access control overrides, and access to safes.
