You’ve locked your keys inside your home, and all you have is your cellphone. You know you need to call a locksmith, but as you scroll through your Google search for “unlock house,” you don’t know how to decipher a quality locksmith from the sketchy ones. Can you really take them at face value?
In an emergency, you may not have time to sift through the local locksmiths. However, these few tips—and a few extra minutes—could help you find a quality locksmith.
1. Ask for referrals.
Get on the phone and call or text friends or family members. Ask them to recommend a local locksmith. Firsthand information is beyond valuable, and you may be able to proceed from here.
2. Check out the reviews.
If you can’t get a good recommendation, then check out customer reviews. Some locksmiths have them directly on their websites while others you can find on service-review websites.
3. Make a few calls.
Call a few locksmiths to get a quote and to assess their level of professionalism. If they aren’t personable and helpful on the phone, we recommend that you keep looking. It’s unlikely the locksmith will suddenly be customer-oriented after arriving at your home.
4. Pay attention to your intuition.
Never hire someone who makes you feel uncomfortable. Your gut instinct is something you want to pay attention to, especially when it comes to unlocking your home, car, or business.
