usa fastest locksmith / gross over charge and surprise costs
Called to have 1 deadbolt installed, 1 deadbolt replaced, keys the same for the new deadbolts and to have one deadboat fixed. Was rushing and was told the deadboats would be $195 and $145. To drill the hole would be $150 and each deadbolt would be $40 to rekey. I was not adding in my head the different amounts but I was aware the prices seemed high. The guy said he fixed the broken deadbolt for free.
He was here less than an hour. He gave me a bill for $800.00. He added a $100 for labor, $49 for the service call...he wanted cash or credit but credit would be another 10% fee.
The work was done...I was stunned I could not even grasp what had happened. I was thinking the work would be $250 when I called the company. He took off $50.
The guy wanted a check for CASH in lieu of cash since he said his company does not take checks. He immediately cashed the check ($750). My son called him when he learned that I had been taken. Then the city of Lake Worth failed my inspection because I had one to many deadbolts and now the door was not code. The service man is resisting removing the deadbolt. I feel robbed.
