Steven came out to estimate re-keying 5 cylinders and installing a keyed double sided dead bolt. Steven said the new deadbolt would not be keyd like the other locks.
He started with a $29 service fee just to come and provide an estimate and then worked up to a total of $879!! He wanted $195 for the dead bolt plus $155 to install it, $65 to rekey each of the five Schlage cylinder plus $44 to “install” each. We had not even gotten to the cost of the keys yesterday.
His approach was very high pressure, wanting to start before he provided a written quote. When I told him that was a lot more than I was expecting he discounted the total to $717 and when I still thought that was too high he discounted the quote to $700.
I paid the $29 service fee and told him I would call if I wanted to go forward. Called a local locksmith shop that had been there for three generations who would do the whole job, including 10 keys, for less than $300 This was less than half 24-7’s final best ” very discounted” offer.
Caveat emptor. Extremely high prices, high pressure sales and they totally turned me off before even starting the work. I regret the $29 service fee I paid just to get an unacceptable quote.
