The best way to answer this question; it is a little hard to say beacuse it depends on a number of things, but we can get you in (in most cases) usually in less than 15 minutes. But that can vary, it can take anywhere between 2 minutes and 60 minutes depending on what type of lock you have and if it is on a security or restricted key, if it's old or new.

In most cases No! All Day Locksmiths can assist you with lost keys by either rekeying (changing the pins inside the cylinder) or replacing the cylinders, there's no need to replace the whole lock if you lose your keys.
If I am locked out of my home, how will you know I actually live there? Do you ask for ID?
Yes, we always ask for ID to make sure that you live there. If your drivers license does not have that address on it, we will usually ask for an electricity bill etc with your name on it, then make sure it matches with the name on your drivers license.
If I ask how much to open my door when I'm locked out, will the price be more expensive when the Locksmith turns up? Is there any hidden costs depending on which lock I have?
No, there is no hidden costs. If you are quoted a price to open your door over the phone, the price will be the same when the Locksmith completes the job. The only extra cost is if the cylinder has to be drilled, which is only an extra $30-$40 depending on the type of cylinder. But 90% of the time we can always gain entry without having to drill the cylinder.

In most cases YES you can! Depending on the brand and type of lock it is. But usually we can key alike all your locks to the one key so you do not get confused with different keys working in different locks.
