Look Twice to Make Sure Your Locksmith Is Local
When you’re locked out of your house or your car, your first thought isn’t to interview every locksmith you call. You just want the emergency to be over, right? Well, the problem is that many people—even businesses with great reputations—will take advantage of your desperation. Here’s how to make sure you get a fair deal every time.
No National Companies
We understand the draw of a national company. After all, they have to be doing something right to gain customers all across the country. The problem is, what they’re doing is right for the company and not the customer. If you do take the time to do a price and service comparison, you’ll likely find your local locksmiths are much more affordable. What’s more, they’re going to take the time to give you the service you deserve.
Avoiding the big guys is harder than it looks, too. You should seek out a locksmith well before you need one so you’re not stuck paying inflated prices the next time you have an emergency. Many of the large chains will set up local shops, so telling the difference between chain and local is tough. The best way to determine if you’ve found a great local locksmith is if the owner lives right there in your area. Take some time to visit a few places and get to know the employees. Ask about the following:
- 24/7 emergency services
- Mobile locksmith unit
- Key duplication limits
- Insurance coverage
- License and accreditation
- Supplies and hardware
The very best local locksmiths will help you out in a pinch without taking advantage of your situation. They’ll come right out to your car wherever you are to help you get inside to get your keys. Above all these things, they’ll be able to show you proof of insurance, licensure, and accreditation.
