Complaint Review: Run Local Locksmith

Run Local Locksmith Price Gouging Centerline , Michigan
gross vehicle weight of 3,600 lbs, probably less than the car the smith was driving. Neither the fact that the vehicle lacked a back seat nor the fact the engine was running made unlocking the door any more difficult, or incurred any more expense or time to the smith. Further, there should be no reason this work should cost more than $40, as the job takes literally 45 seconds of work. Needless to say, I declined.
My co-worker and I were preparing to break one of the windows instead, when the smith offered to do it for $85. Still more money than the average heart surgeon makes, but I accepted.
This is an open and shut case of price gouging, preying on stranded motorists who have no alternative but to pay prices which are ridiculously exorbitant.
Company has an "F" rating with BBB, and has been the subject of several news consumer advocacy reports.
