Picture this: You come home after a long day. As you approach your front door, you reach for your keys — but don’t feel them in your pocket.
You quickly realize you’re locked out of your home. Luckily, on-call locksmiths are available to help.
However, an emergency visit like this can cost as much as $400, depending on your location and the time, lock type, service and trip fees, according to This Old House, a home improvement information and advice platform. (The average cost nationwide is $150, the platform found.)
