Need help finding the right locksmith? We know the locksmith market is competitive and you have many options. Whether you choose Locksmith365 or a different provider (we hope you choose us!), here are some helpful tips to keep in mind as part of your experience.
- Ask for a quote. While in some circumstances it may be impossible to provide a precise quote until the locksmith arrives, good companies have enough experience to be able to provide you with a quote. This includes asking for a quote in an emergency situation. If your need is urgent, be sure to find out if there are any special mileage charges or service call minimums before you book the appointment.
- Assuming you made it through the booking process, when your locksmith arrives, ask for identification and a license. Some states require locksmiths to carry a license and you should be able to see it before the work is performed. Those states that require a license include, Alabama, California, Illinois, Louisiana, New Jersey, North Carolina, Oklahoma, Tennessee and Texas.
- If you sense that the locksmith is asking you to have more work performed than you think is necessary, be sure to ask why. For example, most locksmiths have the tools and the experience to unlock almost any door (home, office, car, truck), so if they suggest that the lock needs to be drilled out or replaced entirely, be sure you are comfortable that you have the answer about why that work is necessary before you permit the work to be performed.
- Fill out a survey or provide a rating online. Your voice matters. If your locksmith doesn’t follow up with a survey to review the quality of their work, you can always go online and post your own review. Your comments and feedback have a huge impact on online rankings. Whether your experience is excellent or not good at all, it should be shared so that other consumers know the quality of that particular company.
