Before you find yourself in a panic because you’ve been locked out of your home – find a local locksmith you can trust.
Many people find themselves scrambling through the phone book in a rush looking for a locksmith to give them access to their home. Unfortunately, there are national companies advertising as local locksmiths – they will take advantage of your situation and your hard-earned dollars.
Before you find yourself locked out – do your research.
Once you find a local locksmith online or in your phone book, make sure it is a legitimate local business with a physical address. This will help you to determine that the company is who it says it is. Save the phone number in your cell phone so that you are prepared for
a lockout just in case the unexpected happens.
How does the scam work?
When people are emotional or stressed because they are locked out of their home or office, often times they will search for listings in the phone book for a local locksmith. Unfortunately, what they find are national companies pretending to be local who quote customers with a reasonable service price.
Once you agree to their quote, they will dispatch your service call through an inexperienced “locksmith” who will arrive at your property. The locksmith tells you that he cannot pick the lock and that he will have to drill your doorknob lock and your deadbolt to gain access to your building.
Once your hardware has been destroyed, a cheap replacement will be installed, and you will be charged a premium price. Your reasonable telephone quote for lockout service has now been compounded into hundreds of dollars, and your quality locks have been replaced with substandard equipment that didn’t need to be installed in the first place.
A quality locksmith will never drill your locks without trying to pick it first – and, in most cases, a locksmith will never need to drill your deadbolt. An experienced locksmith should be able to gain access to your entryway within a few minutes of picking your doorknob – no drilling necessary. However, there is that rare instance where drilling is necessary, and your locksmith should explain that to you.
