The cost of having a locksmith make a “house call” when you’ve locked yourself out of your home or vehicle varies considerably depending on location, type of lock and time of day, but starts with a minimum charge (also called a mobile fee) of $35-$150 for coming to you, Service on evenings, weekends or holidays can go as high as $150-$250.   Locksmiths typically charge $1.50-$4 to copy a standard key, but they may charge $3-$20 or more for specialized keys, and it can be $50-$175 for vehicle keys with an electronic or transponder chip. To come to your home and re-key your door locks, a locksmith will usually charge a minimum fee of $40-$100 plus anywhere from $5-$25 per lock cylinder. To come to your home and install new door locks that you supply, a locksmith will usually charge a $40-$100 minimum fee plus labor charges of $20-$30 per lock.
