Tips for hiring a locksmith

57 People have recommended this article.
  • Ask for legal business name: When contacting a locksmith ask for their legal business name. Steer clear of companies who operate under several names and have several locations. Use companies that are local.
  • Check for marked vehicles: A locksmith’s service vehicle should be clearly marked with the company name and identifying details.
  • Proof of ID: A locksmith should always supply his/her own professional identification and ask for your proof of ID and authorization to begin work upon arrival. Identifying information should also match the name on the service vehicle.
  • Check licensing and insurance: If your state requires licensing (not all states do), is your locksmith licensed? If your property is damaged during a repair, it’s important for the locksmith to have insurance to cover any losses.
  • Verify written estimates: Written estimates should be supplied before the work begins, along with an itemized invoice upon completion. The costs will depend greatly on what type of services you need.
  • Check licensing and insurance: If your state requires licensing (not all states do), is your locksmith licensed? If your property is damaged during a repair, or if faulty work leads to loss or damage, it’s important for the locksmith to have insurance to cover any losses.
  • Are they a member? A qualified locksmith should be a member of the Associated Locksmiths of America (ALOA) and have passed the test to a be a Certified Registered Locksmith (CRL), Certified Professional Locksmith (CPL), or Certified Master Locksmith (CML).
  • Research before the need arises: Emergencies happen and you could get locked out of your house or car. Once you’ve found a reputable locksmith, keep the company’s name and contact information in your wallet or program the number into your cell phone. This will save you time and trouble the next time you need these services.
