How much does it cost to:
Rekey a lock? The cost of a rekey can vary depending on several factors like the type of lock, the type of key, whether or not you have the key for the lock, and the type of key system(master key, for example). Our trip charge is $79, the standard rekey rate is $15 per cylinder, and standard keys cost between $4-$6 a piece. Again the cost can increase based on the type and condition of the locks we will be rekeying.

We order parts from many different brands and specifications to fit our customer’s varying needs and budgets. As a Medeco Security Center, we provide a wide range of high quality, high security products from Medeco and their parent company, ASSA ABLOY.
Do you keep everything in stock?
While we strive to keep an adequate stock of various items both in our warehouses and in our service vehicles, there are times when we will have to order materials for a job. As a Medeco Security Center, we keep a vast array of Medeco products on hand.
How long does it take to order materials for a job?
We work hard to get our materials from a quality source and in a timely manner. Depending on the sources available, and the availability of the part, materials can take anywhere from 1 day to 4 weeks after being ordered. If we do have to order parts, our team will be in communication with you about the expected lead time.

Often we have a part in stock at the warehouse that is not in a service vehicle. When such a part is needed, our Rapid Response Vehicle is able to quickly get the part to our technician so that we can improve our response time and job completion. We also use the Rapid Response Vehicle to get small parts and keys to our customers. If you would like Rapid Response service for your service request involving keys or ordered parts, please call us to check availability.
