Money magazine asks: Is your locksmith ripping you off?

By Kaitlin Mulhere

Ask a group of people to describe their memories of paying for a locksmith, and you're likely to hear a series of adjectives along the lines of "too much," "expensive," "hundreds," or "rip off."

Paying to be let back into your own car or house, like coughing up your hard-earned cash on a parking ticket or a water heater replacement, is a special kind of nuisance. But are locksmith prices really so bad? Professional locksmiths, perhaps unsurprisingly, don't think so. But even the professionals admit that the service is ripe for ripoff artists.
