Frequently asked questions

Locksmiths with RACV Trades can help with home emergencies (such as lockouts), as well as repairing and installing locks, master keys and household key systems. Here’s a list of common everyday jobs we can help with – big and small.

Locksmiths with RACV Trades will give you a quote upfront so you know how much the job will cost before the work begins. If the nature of the job changes, your locksmith will discuss what’s required and check you’re happy to continue before we update your quote.

Every locksmith is vetted by experienced industry specialists to ensure they are accredited, licensed and insured to perform the works required. 

To meet our high quality standards, our vetting and quality assurance process includes:

  • interviews with tradies
  • confirmation of licenses and insurance
  • thorough training and induction
  • regular auditing of completed works.

Yes, locksmiths with RACV Trades are qualified to make keys for locks without the original key using a few methods:

  • cutting keys from a code, or impressioning
  • scoping the lock cylinders to read the depths
  • disassembling/decoding a cylinder.

Your locksmith may also recommend replacing the cylinder with a new one and issuing all new sets of keys, just in case the original was stolen or lost and might pose a security issue for your home.

With RACV Trades, we provide you with a local tradie near you based on what you need done.

You’ll get one quote with a clear outline of the price for the job.
