A locksmith these days does alot more than just simply help you during a lockout situation. Many companies also perform key making and replacing, lock installation or upgrading, video surveillance system setting up and many other services. Because of this, you should look for a trustworthy locksmith.
I’ve included a video expose that the Today Show did on emergency locksmiths and the unfortunate but sadly frequent scams bad locksmiths pull on helpless customers.
Today Show Exposes Shady Locksmiths:
We were shocked to find out that more than half of the “professional” locksmiths we filmed overcharged, damaged the door or used intimidation on the customer.
What can you do to avoid getting scammed?
It’s always a good idea to search for one in advance and choose a locksmith with history in your community. There are times that no matter how careful you are, you’re bound to commit slip-ups. So don’t wait for yourself to be locked out before you look for one operating in your area. See to it that you know of a company you can call when you need its service, especially during emergency situations like in the middle of the night.
