We do NOT charge higher rates for weekend or after-hours service anymore:
Our service call out fee is a flat rate of $65.00, 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. We ONLY charge the service call for customers who are locked out of their home/vehicle which means: $65.00 + Gst gets you back into your vehicle or house!
The $65.00 Service call rate stated above is for WITHIN the CITY OF CALGARY; for areas surrounding Calgary, including: Airdrie, Chestermere, Strathmore, Langdon, Okotoks, Cochrane, etc... the service call is $85.00
WE REKEY HOUSE LOCKS FOR A $65.00 SERVICE CALL + $10.00 PER LOCK + $2.00 PER NEW KEY + GST
The term "rekeying locks" means we will recode your existing locks to a new key, we do not replace your locks for this rate. We provide FREE ESTIMATES for lock replacing/installations as we find it's MUCH easier to match colors and styles to the customer's tastes when we see the customer's existing locks and doors for ourselves
We have mobile debit machines in our service vehicles to accept Interact, Visa, and MasterCard for our customer's convenience
UNFORTUNATLY, WE ARE UNABLE TO PROVIDE VEHICLE KEY CUTTING OR VEHICLE PROGRAMING SERVICES AT THIS TIME.
BEWARE OF BAIT & SWITCH TACTICS BY "LOCKSMITH" SCAMMERS
We, at Family Man Lockworks Ltd Guarantee our rates will not exceed what is quoted. In Calgary, there have been cases of customers responding to "too good to be true" online ads for locksmith services saying they will unlock a car or home for cheap ($30-$35... but we've seen ads as low as $15) but, when the "locksmith" arrived, the price somehow jumps to somewhere between $100-$400! excuses vary, work done tends to be very sloppy as it's done by someone with very little training and NO INSURANCE, such Bait and Switch tactics and damage to property should be, at the very least, reported to the Better Business Bureau , the bottom line is: In Alberta, all locksmiths are licenced by the Alberta Solicitor General and ARE REQUIRED TO CARRY THEIR LICENCE AT ALL TIMES WHILE ON DUTY, A customer is completely within their rights to ask a locksmith to show their licence upon request EXPECIALLY if the locksmith shows up with an unmarked vehicle.
