National Average Price Survey

Thanks to all the locksmiths who have taken the time to participate in our 2013 National Average Price Survey. Results will be published in the February or March issue of Locksmith Ledger and online at www.locksmithledger.com.

We’d also like to know our readers’ strategies on annual price increases. Will your 2013 charges be higher, lower or the same as your charges were in 2012? What are the determining factors? The costs of labor, supplies, fuel and taxes seem to increase every year. Are you able to offset these increases by charging more for service calls or key cutting? Drop us a line and share your thoughts.
