What do locksmith services include?

Locksmith services typically include assistance with accessing your home, vehicle, office, or other property when you’ve lost or misplaced your keys. 

A local locksmith may also provide key cutting, lock and key repair, lock and key replacement, and 24/7 service. Each Tasker’s offerings may vary, so be sure to specify what you need when you put up a task post. 

Mobile Locksmith

While some locksmiths may have brick-and-mortar shops where you can get your keys cut or repaired, mobile locksmiths go to your location and assist you from wherever you are. So when you request a local locksmith through our platform, chances are you’ll be working with a mobile locksmith. They’ll travel to your home, office, or even the car park you’re in, then help you gain access even without your keys. 

Emergency Locksmith

Need a locksmith ASAP? You can easily find affordable 24-hour locksmiths through Airtasker. These locksmiths are typically available even after “regular” hours and know that there’s nothing more panic-inducing than being locked out of your own home late at night. Emergency locksmiths can also help you if your house has been broken into, and you need to replace the locks ASAP. 

Some may also specialise in opening safes, recoding electronic keypad locks, and reprogramming transponder car keys.  

Auto Locksmith

Auto locksmiths specialise in security and access to vehicles, including cars, vans, and motorcycles. For example, if you’ve locked your car keys inside the vehicle, chipped the key, or need tech support for a smart key, request an auto locksmith near you. These specialists can travel to your garage, the car park, or wherever you’re located. 

Auto locksmiths aren’t the only automobile specialists you can find on Airtasker. You can also book a mobile mechanic who can check your vehicle right in your driveway or garage. 

Lock and Key Replacement

Part of securing your home, car, or other property includes changing the locks and keys. It’s a good idea to change these when you’ve moved houses or lost your keys. For example, if your home were recently robbed, you’d want to get this done ASAP. 

And if you’re a landlord, you’ll need to change the lock and key every time a tenant moves out. Airtasker helps you find local lock and key replacement specialists for your home, car, and more. They may dismantle the old lock entirely or modify it so that you’ll need a new key to access it - but without tearing down the entire lock. 

Lock and Key Repair

Frozen door locks chipped keys, and latches that don’t work all make your home a bit more vulnerable to intruders. Our platform helps you find locksmiths who can repair locks and keys quickly and conveniently. 

You can request lock and key repair experts for your car, doors, and even your windows. And in case it’s not just your door lock that needs fixing, you can also use Airtasker to find a local handyperson to fix your door

Door Lock barrel replaced


South Yarra VIC, Australia

10th May 2023

Security door lock barrel is broken. Key will go in but unable to ‘unlock’ so door is stuck in locked position. Don’t believe it’s due to the top-bottom of the door, it’s the actual lock barrel itself that isn’t turning with the key. Believe we need it replaced but would ideally not have to replace all the keys. - Due date: Needs to be done on Friday, 12 May 2023
