Choosing the right locksmith for you

If you have an issue with a lock you want to understand how to choose a reliable, professional, local locksmith who will provide the services you need at a reasonable price. Whether it is an emergency lockout, maintenance, lock change after buying a new home or lock repair, choosing the right company is key. The security of your home, school, institution or business is at stake and you need to ensure that the locksmith that you hire is knowledgeable, skilled and able to deliver in a timely manner.

1. Define the services that you need Communicate to the potential locksmith exactly what you need. Provide images where possible. Ascertain that the locksmith you have contacted is able to provide these services.

Common Services include:

  • Servicing car lockouts or car key creation
  • Residential Lock repairs, lock replacement, combination changes or lockouts
  • Servicing business with master keys, lock replacement or rekeying doors.
  • Safe installation, opening or safe lockouts

2. Determine who is qualified to provide the service.

Check your local listings to see who is locally available. Visit the company website to see if they provide the service you need and check client reviews. If your need is not urgent, schedule an appointment.

3. Consider Family-Owned
There is likely nothing wrong with your local, corporate locksmith company. However, choosing a family-owned and operated locksmith has benefits. First, you can rest easy knowing the company you hired has a personal interest in the safety of your community. Secondly, you can easily speak directly to the person responsible for the business to address any concerns. Third, you are supporting your community by buying local.
