December Special Details:
Several locksmith companies charge a service call + labor for everything (including lockouts). Family Man Lockworks Ltd has always charged a flat rate for lockouts - WHY? - Because it is less confusing to the customer. Our usual flat rates for lockouts were $65 + GST, Monday to Friday 8:30am - 5:00pm, and $130 + GST on evenings, weekends, and holidays. But FOR THE MONTH OF DECEMBER, ALL LOCKOUTS ARE $65 + GST, 24 HOURS A DAY / 7 DAYS A WEEK! We don't mind when people call us saying that they are "shopping for the best rates", and we advise people that call other companies for estimates to have them confirm what the TOTAL price will be, and is there a guarantee that this price will not be higher than what was quoted?
Many people who have called locksmith companies in the past were expecting to pay a rate advertised by the locksmith company, but were surprised and shocked when the bill ended up being much higher than what they expected to pay. Part of the reason is many locksmith advertisements found online show low prices (usually half the price of what we guarantee), but that is only PART of the final cost to the customer (usually the service call). The customer then gets a bill showing the service trip cost PLUS a labor cost which equals a much HIGHER cost than what the customer was prepared to pay! Family Man Lockworks GUARANTEES the rate will not exceed what was quoted!
Why "Family Man"? As the owner of Family Man Lockworks Ltd, I occasionally get asked this question. I realize that in this day and age, the term "Family Man" can mean different things to different people. To me, it simply means "Man who has accepted his responsibilities". By naming the company 'Family Man Lockworks" (Yes, I am a husband and father as well.), I am telling customers that they will receive responsible and reliable locksmith services.
