Locks Keys & REKEY - anyone know of a cheap locksmith?

Post by 67supervan on Thu Sep 25, 2014 7:24 pm

My 66 chevy needs matching locks. The locksmiths advertising their services in the Denver area are asking $25-45 per cylinder to rekey. That's obscene. Most of these smiths don't have a shop and use a call dispatch center in New York, further preventing the prices from being reasonable. At that rate, I'd be better off buying new locks, although I can't find a set that includes a cylinder for the cargo door.

If you've had locks rekeyed for your Chevy in the $5-15 per cylinder range, please tell me where you went. I'm thinking it's going to be cheaper just to ship my locks out in a $5 priority package to a locksmith that's not trying to retire after their next transaction.

Or, if you know of a chevy parts seller that can provide matching new locks for all doors and ignition, that would be helpful too.

Thanks twinpilot, I'll call them soon.
Jeremy, my local chevy dealer wants $120/hour to rekey cylinders. Thanks for mentioning though.

Anyone else know of places too?

The people I use - recomended above!!!!!!!!!! charge  to remake / punch a key from a code  charge  a  totally Redicilious fee of =   =   $5.00 to make 2 keys .  They told me they even have origional car /van = ect.=locksets  . If u call them & send them ur keys / locksets & tell  them what u want -they can do it all & as theyre an old couple - their prices are NOT LIKE modern day locksmiths!! This couple has forgotten more than  any 10 new locksmiths know!! Id even be open to taking ur sets by there as I pass the shop weekly in my errands. bounce cheers
