Beware of Scams

image

Before hiring a locksmith, it’s a good idea to get a price confirmation in writing, as well. You should also make sure there are no hidden charges.Dishonest locksmiths will attract you by putting a vague price in their advertisements. They use words such as “$20 and up” which means you cannot be sure about how much they will charge you later on. Some also mention words like “plus labor” where the fee for the labor is not specified at all. They can use that as a tactic to charge additional fees once they are done with their job. The vagueness of their prices only implies that they want to charge you more than the amount you know you are supposed to pay them.

The overwhelming majority of calls to locksmiths are made under emergency conditions. Customers are often placed in victim-like situations, in dire need of help—often late at night—and therefore are easy prey to shady locksmiths.

Trustworthiness

The locksmith must be reliable and trustworthy as well. This is an important quality because they enter your property and will know about the locks on each of your doors. Therefore, it is important that you only call a locksmith who has impeccable credentials and can be trusted.
