That is a hard answer for anyone to give to you , due to the fact that your personal "overhead" operating costs (liability insurance, other business insurance, auto insurance, gas, travel distance, etc) .... will also affect your charges along with yoru local going rates for such a service call.

I suggest that you do a search over at "Contractor Talk" or even post your question there (if you are in the trades).

We would charge around 80 dollars if its a screwdriver replacement including service call. A little more if it needs overbored or door adjustment etc.

I know our store up your way in Jersey would charge more just as AC says due to the local market.

Why are you trying to replace it?

If its just to change out the keys from a previous keyholder, having it rekeyed if you can take it to a shop is a lot cheaper.
