When you need a locksmith, it may seem like you have a tremendous amount of options – so many, in fact, that you don’t know who to call. The truth is actually the opposite: you really have very few options. You can:
- Google ‘Toronto locksmith’ and hope for the best
- Page through your GTA Yellow Pages and hope for the best
- Ask friends, relatives, neighbours, and co-workers for what locksmith they recommend
If you choose the first or second option, you may actually be taking a huge risk. You could wind up hiring an uninsured, unprofessional company with little security system installation experience. They could damage your locks; sell you ineffective systems, or cheap, low-quality locks; improperly install locks, security systems or safes; damage your car or door frame; the list just goes on and on.
Finding a reputable locksmith
Say you don’t already know a locksmith and you pick the third option: asking people you trust what locksmith they would recommend. You will probably end up with a trustworthy, reputable locksmith who will do a great job at a fair price. But what if no one you ask has ever hired a locksmith? People who rent may never need to personally have their locks changed. And those who don’t drive, have never suffered the agony of locking their keys in the car! Now you’re back to square one.
The most important thing you can do to find a reputable locksmith is, quite simply, your homework. You have to put the time in and do the research to uncover the reputation of the company you are considering hiring. You could…
- Read testimonials online
- Ask for references that you can speak with personally
- Call the company and see what impression you get from the person who answers the phone
- Ask if the company is insured
- Ask if the technicians hold any form of certification or licensing
- Ask for a quote and what the quote covers: Parts? Labour? Service fees?
