The best way to deal with fly-by-night locksmiths is to request a price. Most, if not all of them, will refuse to give you a price. Instead, they’ll tell you that only the locksmith on site can determine the cost based on the situation in hand, etc. Well, if your locksmith can’t bid on the job, meaning he is either about to rip you off or is not professional and doesn’t understands the scope of work therefore cannot bid on it.
