    FAQ Locksmiths Perth WA ( Frequently Asked Questions)


    How much does a locksmith cost? 

    Good question. Unfortunately, there’s no simple answer. A locksmith can cost anywhere from $45 to $350 depending on the complexity of the service required and what time of the day or night it is. Small tasks such as rekeying and making spare keys will obviously cost lesser than more complex tasks such as setting up a master key system or making a transponder key for a car. What we can assure you is that Locksmith Perth WA offers reliable locksmith service at very reasonable rates. 

    Do you offer an Emergency or After-hours service? 

    Yes, we do! At Locksmith Perth WA, we offer 24/7 emergency locksmith services. So, whether you’re locked out of your home or can’t find your car key, we’ve got your back. Give us a call and we’ll get to your location ASAP. We have mobile vans stationed across all Perth suburbs. So, wherever you’re calling us from, we’ll be able to get to you quickly. 

    Do I have any guarantee? 

    Yes, all our services and the products that we use come with a guarantee. Furthermore, we offer a three-month warranty on our services and products as well, for your peace of mind. 

    Can I pay with a credit card? 

    Of course. We accept all forms of payments such as credit/debit card payments, cash payments as well as bank transfers. 

    Are you a registered and licensed locksmith? 

    Yes, we are. Our licenses and registrations include: 

    • Apprenticeship in Locksmithing Level 4
    • Lagard Safe Professional Technicians Course
    • Security Installers License of WA
    • Security Agents License
    • Security Consultants License
    • Blue Card

    How fast can Perth Locksmiths WA get me into my home if I am locked out?

    On average, it takes us just ten minutes or lesser to unlock your door and get you into your home. Of course, if the lock mechanism is complex or jammed, it might take a little longer. But in most cases, we’ll be able to unlock the door in ten minutes or less. 

    How fast can you arrive at my location? 

    As mentioned earlier, we have mobile vans stationed all across Perth. So, when you call us, it takes us anywhere from 30 to 45 minutes to reach your location. That’s just an average estimate. It can take longer or shorter depending on the distance to be covered and the traffic at the time of the day. 

    Can you give me a single key for all my doors? 

    Yes, we can do that. We can rekey your locks so you can open all the locks in your home or office with a single key. 

    I broke my key. Can you fix it? 

    If you broke your key, we can make you a replacement key. If the key broke off in the lock and is jammed, no worries. We can remove the broken part, make you a replacement key and have you back inside your home in no time.

    What is the difference between a Transponder Key and a regular car key?

    A car key that has a small computer chip installed inside of it is called a Transponder key. The car itself will not start without a transponder key unless the computer chip inside of the Transponder Key can be detected by the car’s interior computer. This way a car’s security is increased since the chip makes the vehicle that much more difficult to steal. The only disadvantage is that when you need a transponder car key replaced, not only does the key gets cut but also additional programming service is also required which is expensive as compared to a regular car key.

    Should I really have my new locks re-keyed?

    Yes, Perth Locksmiths WA recommends having new locks re-keyed. It is a good idea to have the lock re-keyed if you decide to purchase a less expensive hardware store brand of the lockset. Sometimes hardware store lock sets have identical keys in separate lock packages of the same model of lock. Someone who buys the same lock as yours can use his key to unlock your lock.

    How do you determine the price for a lockout?

    Some customers assume that there is a set price for each lockout service without recognizing that each lockout is unique and requires a different amount of labor as well as techniques to complete. For example, a lockout service for an older vehicle from the 90s will be cheaper than a lockout service for a 2016 vehicle because of many reasons.

    Firstly, a locksmith is responsible for the work he is completing on the automobile, therefore a less expensive car has a lower risk of getting any damage, whereas the more expensive vehicle would be extremely sensitive to damage.

    The second reason is the amount of security within the car. Newer model cars have highly sophisticated security systems inside of the vehicle. Sometimes a locksmith can’t even help with these types of lockouts due to the amount of security. So, basically, the cost of a service is determined according to the amount of risk in damage that the technician must take in a lockout, along with the amount of security that the vehicle has.
