How to Stay Safe from Emergency Scam Locksmiths

At some point of time, each home, business or auto owner requires the assistance of a Locksmith. Unfortunately, not all Locksmiths are reputable. Avoiding a scam Locksmith is important as avoiding one not only means the possibility of compromising the quality and affordability of the work performed, but the future safety. Consider the simple tips below to avoid a scam Locksmith. Home, business and auto owners in need of immediate Locksmith services are prime candidates for scam Locksmiths. Signs of a scam Locksmith include: •

  • The company answers the phone without identifying their company name, or may answer only saying, “Locksmith”
  • Too good to be true quotes given over the net or over the phone
  • is not licenced
  •  little qualifications
  •  lacks the technical skills to be an efficient Locksmith
  •  shows up in an unmarked car.
  •  talks up the price before starting the job.
  • claims they need to drill your lock because the lock you have cannot be picked.

While there may be cases that your lock can’t be picked, most often, this is a scam for a Locksmith to charge more. Scam Locksmiths who know you are in immediate service of assistance are more prone to charge much more than the going rate for Locksmith repairs, which is a sure signal that the Locksmith is a scam Locksmith. In an Emergency Locksmith situation, it is easy to lose your sense of judgment; therefore, the best approach is to take a few deep breaths, and take the time to find a reputable Locksmith that is trustworthy. When searching for a reputable Locksmith, you should look for:

  • A licenced and bonded Locksmith
  • years of experience in the trade
  • a clean reputation
  • that is local
  • is affordable
  • offers emergency Locksmith services

Reputable Locksmith companies will have their own service vehicles that are clearly marked. This is important as you are trusting the company with your safety and security welfare. When a Locksmith responds to your call, before you allow the Locksmith to begin the work to be performed, you should always ask for their business card, as well as to see their Locksmith licence, or a copy of it. Before they begin to perform the work, be sure you have upfront costing on the job, and be sure that the quote will be honored as the final cost of work performed. Finding a Locksmith before you need one is you best solution. This allows you plenty of time to search for a reputable Locksmith who is affordable and one that is not only licenced and bonded, but also has years of experience in the trade. Reputability and experience are the key essentials in a Locksmith, and before you hire a Locksmith you should take the time to ask for references, which you check out and ask the Locksmith the number of years they have been a professional Locksmith.
