Losing your keys or getting them stolen or broken can be incredibly scary in the United States. After all, it may be the only way to secure and access your valuable property!

When you request a 24 hour local locksmith through Airtasker, they may be able to get to your location in an hour or so. The actual lock-picking can take anywhere from a minute to an hour, depending on the lock/s. The great thing about booking through Airtasker is that it takes only minutes to find an available specialist, which means less time spent waiting outdoors. 

First, Airtasker guarantees transparent and honest reviews from customers just like you. When you hire a master locksmith through our platform, you get to read through customer testimonials even before confirming the appointment. Next, we encourage you to ask for identification once the locksmith arrives. They will also ask you for proof of ownership, so everyone should be covered in security. 

To prove that you own your home, the locksmith may request a copy of the deed to your home, an ID with your address, or mail with your address on it. Or, they may ask your landlord or neighbours to verify that you are indeed locked out of your home. On the other hand, an auto locksmith may request to see your car’s title, so it’s best to keep this handy in your glovebox.

Yes. Whether you lost your master key due to theft or negligence, it is best to get an expert to replace your door locks for your safety. A local locksmith could do this by changing the entire lock or rekey it instead (i.e. change an aspect of the lock without dismantling it entirely). If you’re considering improving your home security and decor by installing a new door, you can also find a Tasker nearby who can help you.

Yes, it would help if you changed the locks whenever you move into a new home. This includes new flats and previously-owned homes. If you are renting, make sure that your landlord has changed the locks - it is their responsibility to you as their tenant, and it also helps secure their property. Need help clearing out your old place? You can find affordable furniture removalists through our platform. 

Yes, some locksmiths in the United States may be able to provide you with key cutting services. This is more affordable than having to change the locks in your home or vehicle. If you’d like to set an appointment with a trusted key cutter near you, simply place this in your task post.  

What do local 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 specialize in opening safes, recoding electronic keypad locks, and reprogramming transponder car keys.  

Auto Locksmith

Auto locksmiths specialize 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
