Finding a Locksmith You Can Trust
It happens to the best of us: You lock your keys in the car or you get home from a trip only to realize you have somehow gotten locked out of your house. The answer to either of these scenarios is to call a locksmith. Unfortunately, few of us have a trusted locksmith on speed dial, so how do you find one you can depend on…and during an emergency? It’s an important decision, after all, because your security is at stake.
Here are some suggestions for finding a trustworthy locksmith:
1. Search locksmith organizations on the Internet. Findalocksmith.com, for instance, is sponsored by the Associated Locksmiths of America and features only professionals who are registered with that organization. You can search the website by your location or by the services you need.
2. Ask friends, neighbors, and colleagues–or others you know well–for references to a locksmith they trust. Word of mouth is a powerful form of advertising, and good locksmiths will have established strong relationships with their clients.
3. Check for a local shop. In this digital age, a locksmith who has set up a storefront is probably a locksmith who is legitimate. Stop in at the store to meet the staff and find out how they treat their customers–both existing and potential.
It’s worth mentioning here that you should make certain that any locksmith you work with should have a state license or registration. If they do not state a legal business name, be sure to ask for it. If they hesitate to give it to you, that is likely cause for alarm, and you may want to move on. And be sure they check to see that you are actually who you say you are by asking to see your ID. All parties involved should be protected.
The bottom line: Don’t wait for an emergency to locate a good, dependable locksmith.
