run-local-locksmith / outrageously high prices + false advertising,
Never use that scam !
That national company, advertises low service fee ($29), and prices 10% to 25% lower than local locksmiths. The word"local" in its name lends to think they can be trusted. I needed a simple pair of Kwikset locks on my apprtment door unlocked, my spare keys were in the appartment. i got their tel # from a friend who saw the low price advertisement
The technician insisted against my better judgement that he had to change the 2 locks, charged me $336 for it, which I paid since I was desperate to get to work. I called several real local locksmiths 2 days later and put a stop on my credit card payment. They all said they could surely open that type of locks for a total of $70-$80. My bill listed $180 for opening the 2 locks, $110 for the 2 locks. I checked the current price of the current similar pair of Kwikset locks (they used an older model) : $50.
I know of 2 other instances when that company has insisted to change locks needlessly. Their low prices advertising is deceptive sicne they charge outrageously high prices compared to honest local artisans
