Emergency Service FAQs

  • Does it cost more for ''Emergency Service'' after 5PM?

    Yes,  later in the evening hours may have a nominal added charge for the after hours service. Please feel free to call for a quoted price for later night services.  However, we believe that pricing should be fair and honest. We do not gouge our customers due to them having a problem at night or on weekends.
  • Do you do service work on weekends? 

    Yes, we understand that you may have a problem getting work done during the week and we can schedule work for weekend and or evening hours.  We do many service calls on Saturday or in the later evening hours with a nominal added charge for the service

  • I'm locked out of my house or business can you help me?

    Sure, we do hundreds of residential /commercial lockouts. We do require that you have some sort of verification that you are authorized to enter the premises pursuant to South Carolina State Law. For example, for a home, the address on your divers license should match the address you are requesting unlocked. However, they are other forms of ID that may be accepted.
  • Will unlocking my lock/car/ business damage the locks?

    No, in 99% of the cases we can gain access with no damage to the lock or mechanism. In the case of automobiles, we have invested hundreds of dollars in equipment that is designed to open specific vehicles with no damage. Most home or business locks can be opened with no damage. however, high security locks such as Abloy, Medeco, Best IC Core, and similar are designed to prevent any type of manipulation and sometimes the only way to defeat these style locks is methods that render the lock unusable.

  • Can You Open A Locked Safe?

    Yes,  If you lose the combination and you cant get it open, it is doing what it was designed to do.

    Safe opening has been considered an art and or a science. A technical element is applied and the experience and natural instinct of the safe opener is important, at Ellis we have the tools to open any safe big or small and also the knowledge for the task.

    If your safe fails to open and you do have a combination, many times we can open it in a very short time and repair it. Sometimes a safe has a mechanical failure and must be drilled open. This does take longer and is more costly.

    No matter the case Ellis Repair Service is your safe repair specialist.
