Unless a high-security door, visit fee of $30-60 + about $10/lock (doorknob and deadbolt are each a separate charge) rekeying + $2-4/key

If you are a little house-handy, a normal quality door lock/deadbolt set can be changed by you for about $30-40, so doing two doors with totally new locks yourself costs about the same or a bit less than rekeying 2 doors. If you throw in rollup and people access garage doors (if have a lock) then gets significantly cheaper to do yourself.
