Why book a locksmith through Airtasker?

Lock related work is inevitably an urgent matter. Whether you’ve been locked out of your house or have reason to change the locks, you’ll likely want the job done as soon as possible. This can lead many to simply hire the first locksmith that they call. Like medical assistance, cost takes a back seat to rapidity.

Top Locksmith related questions

What are some common locksmith services?

Common locksmith services include picking, fixing, and replacing locks on residential properties or car doors. However, they can also design secure locking systems (including electronic entry systems) and perform security audits on residential and commercial buildings.

Can a locksmith open any lock?

This will depend on the type of tools the locksmith has and the lock itself. While many standard locks can be picked quickly and easily with a pick gun or similar, sometimes the lock is so old or difficult that it’s quicker to drill the lock (breaking the mechanism to gain access).

What should you do if you’re locked out of your house?

If you can’t get inside, jump straight on the Airtasker app and search for a locksmith near you. A local locksmith will be able to reach you easily and they’ll have the right tools to get you into your home quickly, safely, and with minimal damage to your property.

Do you need qualifications to be a locksmith?

Yes. Qualified locksmiths in Australia need to be at least 18 years old and complete an apprenticeship or traineeship.

What happens when you hire a locksmith?

Once you’ve agreed on an initial price and task details, your mobile locksmith will visit your property or car to assess the lock and carry out the work. If there are any unexpected challenges or materials needed, your locksmith will confirm a final quote once they’ve assessed the situation.

How much does a locksmith cost?

The average cost of locksmith services is $60-$142, but the price will depend on the complexity of the job and whether new locks need to be provided. Automotive locksmith tasks can cost a little more at $80-$180, while installing a new lock can cost as little as $70.

Do I need a specialist licence?

For certain types of tasks, you may need someone who has a specialist licence and also additional insurance. Please make sure that you confirm that a Tasker has the relevant licence and insurance before accepting an offer.

What does locksmithing include?

While they’re great in emergencies, you can call on a locksmith to help with other lock-related challenges, too. Here’s you can expect when you hire a locksmith for different tasks:

Emergency locksmith

Emergency locksmiths are available at short notice and often work outside standard trading hours. Ideally, you want to find a locksmith near you so they can get to you quickly and keep your lockout time to a minimum. An emergency locksmith will first try to pick your locks and deadbolts to get you back into your home. But if this doesn’t work, they’ll have the right tools to drill the lock and immediately install a new one to keep your home secure.

Auto locksmith

If you break or lose your car key, or lock it inside your car, you can hire an automotive locksmith. They can unlock your car to retrieve your keys or replace your lock and key with a new one. Auto locksmiths can also help with fitting car locks, fixing car door handles, and replacing ignition barrels.

Lock repair

Locks don’t last forever. Wear and tear can make them stick or even break. A locksmith can help with lock repair on your front door, car door, garage door, mailbox, bathroom/bedroom, and even your windows and sliding doors. They’ll either fix and realign the broken lock or if it’s beyond fixing, they’ll replace it with a new one. ?

Lock installation

If you’ve got a new door, a broken lock, or you’re not confident your current security system is secure, you might need a new lock installed. This is a smart idea if you’ve lost track who has access or a copy of your keys. Find a locksmith near you to install a new or upgraded lock so you can be confident it’s done properly. When you post your task, be sure to specify what type of lock you need fitted, whether you have the lock already, or if you need the locksmith to provide materials.?

Supply and install new door

$110

Oakleigh East VIC, Australia

20th Nov 2020

Hi there, I need help with installing a new door to my bedroom. The current one is busted as I was locked in, and my partner had to kick the door so I could get out. The dimensions of the door is 2000mm x 810mm x 35mm. Will also need a new door knob as the current one is obviously broken as it locked me in. Price to include labour and materials. I think the most similar door is a Hume Primecoat Honeycomb Flush Door or a Corinthian Doors PMDF Flush Panel Door from Bunnings for $34. Most similar door knob looks like the Gainsborough G4 Series Terrace Entrance Knob Lockset Stainless Steel for $39. Thank you.

Handyperson needed to install 2 door key locks

$80

Dulwich Hill NSW, Australia

19th Nov 2020

I have bought 2x key door locks from Bunnings and required a skilled handyman/carpenter to install these locks on two bedroom doors. I will provide the locks, but will need the handyman to provide their own tools to complete the job. In terms of the tools required please see the back of the packaging of the locks I purchased - they outline all the tools required to complete the job. I have taken pictures of the current state door handle / door as well as the new lock that is to be installed. The current door handles have no lock and hence would need replacement. Let me know if any queries/clarifications required. Thanks

Great quality job and very friendly guy
