Local-Lock Complete Locksmith Service — Unauthorized billing!
I had locked my keys in the car early one morning. I called the first locksmith I found in the yellow pages that offered 24 hour service. They said it was a $45 dollar service charge depending on the vehicle and would be there 20-25 minutes. This was at 7 am. 7:50 the locksmith showed up and my service charge was $45 indeed, but because my vehicle was a Tahoe, there was an addt'l charge of $85. A grand total of $140! I later called and asked for a price and again was quoted $45... I asked if it matter the time or area and he said maybe an addt'l $25 depending... interesting in that I just pd $140. I called the company that morning and told the dispatcher that I was over charged. He said the would get with the tech and get back with me. One hour later I called him back and he said he would call me back before noon. Again, no call. I finally tracked him down and he told me that was what they charged. I then spoke with the owner who said the same thing. I suggested maybe they warn people about their prices. I called several local locksmiths and asked their prices for after hour emergencies and did not get one quote over $50.
