Often, it is difficult to quote a customer a price over the phone. Jobs come with many variables, such as access, security, door and jamb type (if we’re installing a lock, for example). Too, clients are not sure what services we can provide. Frequently, they call knowing that they need to update their security, but not sure how or with what. That’s fine. We don’t expect our clients to know the ins and outs of locksmithing. That’s our job. To help our clients, and to identify and discuss with them their security needs, we offer a free on-site survey and quote. This week, the Amalgamated Locksmiths blogging team look at what happens at a free on-site quote.

Who performs the quotes?

Our mobile locksmiths travel throughout Melbourne’s Northern and inner suburbs. Based centrally in Collingwood, we have fast access to a wide range of Melbourne suburbs. Our mobile locksmiths offer a range of products and services. One such service is a free on-site quote.

Amalgamated Locksmiths’ technicians are all fully accredited, Master Locksmiths, licensed in the State of Victoria. When you book one of our locksmiths for a free quote, you know you are getting a professional, expert and reliable service.

How do I book a quote?

Call us during business hours to arrange an appointment. Alternatively, you can leave your details with us using our Contact Us page.

At the Appointment

Our mobile locksmiths will arrive and introduce themselves. You’ll be able to recognise them by their friendly smile and Amalgamated Locksmiths van! They’ll also have their Private Security Licence ready to show you.


At the appointment, our technician will work with you to understand your security needs. They will discuss with you what security option may best suit your situation and will answer any questions you may have. Working with you, our technician will tailor a security option that will best suit the situation — we have locks for all kinds of doors, safes for all kinds of valuables, and security solutions for all kinds of homes or businesses, including apartment blocks and public buildings.

What Happens Next?

Once our technician has discussed with you your options, they will return to the office to prepare your quote. Our quotes are competitive, fair and transparent. Once we have emailed you your quote, we will be happy to discuss any further questions you may have.

Once the client accepts our quote, we will arrange a time to perform the service.
