How To Choose a Great Locksmith
You should be aware of unprofessional and scammy locksmiths who have no licence and hire uncertified people to do their job. They will give you cheap locks and unreliable men who have not been background checked. It is extremely dangerous to let such people fix your locks, you never know what kind of spoofing device they are planting or hide the copy of your key.
If likely to require a locksmith at some stage of your life and if you ever do get one someday, here are few things to remember
Check their license
When you call the locksmith to fix your locks, ask for a copy of their license when they come to visit. A locksmith that is licensed is authorized to work with locks, change them, fix them, etc for people and businesses. Good locksmiths are accredited by the Department of Consumer Protection and the Enforcement and Investigation Services.
Make sure they are local locksmith
It is easy to get reference, contact and verify the company, if the locksmith is a local one. Locksmiths that are situated in another city or town are harder to trust. They may do a bad job on your lock then vanish. If they don’t pick up your calls it would be very difficult for you to track them down.
Check their insurance
A locksmith that has a good business and is professional will keep their employees safe.
They make sure their employees are covered in case of any accidents, also insurance will cover any accidental property damage during their work.
Check their google or yelp ratings
Since Google ratings are public, anyone can come and rate them.
You can see both good and bad reviews and determine if the company is trustworthy.
Get a reference
Another great way to determine the credibility of the locksmith is to get a reference from someone reliable. If a random customer or someone that you know has gotten their services and has been satisfied by it, it is an indicator of a good locksmith.
They must have a reliable refund policy
An authentic company has a refund policy in case something goes wrong. For example if your work is not done right to the behaviour or the locksmith who came to your house wasn’t good enough.
