Their website and phone operator both say there is a $15
Service charge plus a minimum $25 charge for residential lockout. She refuses to quote a price saying, it will
depend on the security of the lock in very poor English. The lock was a simple house doorknob lock, so
I figured it couldnt be much more than $25, right? WRONG!!!!
The locksmith arrives (30 min late) and takes one look at
the lock and says $135. He said there
was no way a residential lockout would be under $100 and said the operator
shouldnt have said minimum $25. When I
said the website said the same thing, he played it off and denied it.
I agreed to pay the fee with the intention of calling the owner
of the business later and inquiring about what kind of residential lockout
service would be $25.
I called a couple days later and got a man who could barely
speak English and I asked him. He said
something about not being able to hear me and hung up. I tried calling back several times that day
and each time the call was answered and immediately disconnected.
They have all of their legal bases covered.its a pretty
good scam. Go with a locally owned
business like Cothron. I called them out
of curiosity and they quoted me 79.99 over the phone.
Expensive lesson learned
