Unfortunately, there are locksmith scams out there that may come up in your time of need, especially if it’s a lockout situation.

Here are a few things to look for when dealing with a locksmith.

Make Sure Your Locksmith is Local

It’s easy for a locksmith to pretend they are one. Before you call a locksmith, be sure that they operate locally and have a local address and number that you’re able to use.

Ask for a Cost Estimate

Ask up front for an estimate based on your situation. A good locksmith should be able to give you a quality estimate if the information you give them is correct. Once they arrive, again, if your information was correct, the price shouldn’t fluctuate too much. If their on-site price doesn’t match what they estimated, you might want to look elsewhere and not allow the locksmith to do the work.

Ask About Any Additional Charges

Some additional charges are a part of doing business based on your location and the time of day, but be sure to ask up front so that you are on the same page and know what to expect.

Don’t Let the Locksmith Drill Your Lock Except in Serious Conditions

It’s pretty rare for a locksmith to need to drill a lock and is only usually with high security locks. So, be wary if that is one of the first things that the locksmith says they need to do. You may want to look for a second opinion before going through with that type of service.
