How to Select a Locksmith Company

How to Select a Locksmith Company

Few people plan for the kinds of situations that require a locksmith. Maybe you are locked out of your home, business, or vehicle. Maybe there was a break in, or you lost your keys, and you would feel safer with all new locks. No matter the situation, knowing how to select a locksmith company can save you time, money, and frustration.

Whether through an online search, or a quick glance through the yellow pages, there are likely a few listings for locksmiths in your area. You can begin by contacting a few listings to see who is available, and to obtain a quote for the service you need. You will also want to collect basic information, including their Locksmith license number. Before officially hiring anyone, you should verify the license. In California, this can be done online through the California Bureau of Security & Investigative Services website.

To narrow down your search further, you may want to speak with trust friends, family, or neighbors to see if there is anyone they have used before. Local real estate rental, or property management, companies may also be able to provide information. Online review sites can also be a wealth of information when looking for a service provider in your area.

Once you have selected a locksmith company, you will want to set an appointment. A reliable company should be able to work with you to provide you will an acceptable appointment window. If your preferred locksmith is unavailable when you call to schedule an appointment, see if there is someone local to whom they could refer you. They are likely familiar with other locksmiths in your area, and would only recommend someone they trust.

My Toyota was successfully unlocked by a locksmith representing this company, 101 Locksmith. Thank you for showing up quickly, performing your service exactly as described and for NOT charging an arm and a leg for the service call.

First time using this locksmith, but it certainly won't be my last! The locksmith was nothing but polite, informative and helpful. Changed the lock to my front door without charging me an arm and a leg and didn't mess anything up. Thank you.

I called them out to change the lock for my front door. A locksmith met with me at my home within the hour. The lock replacement itself only ended up taking about another 20 minutes. The locksmith was courteous and respectful. I didn’t encounter any problems with the locksmith or the service. I would use them again.

Incredible service. Needed a couple Mul-t-lock keys made. After quick instructions were sent, keys were made before I arrived. He delivered them to me via curbside service, and didn't even need to get out of my car. Friendly. Good pricing. Great customer service .Highly recommend! Thanks guys!

The first guy that came to help us did a lousy job. After an hour, the owner, Naour, called and asked if we were satisfied with the job. I told him no because the first guy did a bad job. Naour said he would come and fix it himself, which he did. He said he treats his customers like family, and I appreciate that. Way to go!
