The best way to get a referral of good local locksmith is to ask someone in your family, a friend or neighbor whom they use. They will be able to give you a personal testimonial of their experience with that locksmith and will likely have the locksmith’s name and phone number as well.
Many insurance companies maintain a list of reputable local locksmiths, so you may want to check with your insurance agent
It's a good idea to check with the Better Business Bureau before you hire a locksmith. You can just type in the locksmith’s name at BBB.org to get their rating. Another way to verify a locksmith’s reputation is to check other people’s reviews of their service online through sites like Yelp. A good locksmith will have good reviews from satisfied customers.
Is it really a good idea to have your keys made just anywhere? Many hardware stores and mall kiosks have key making machines that are capable of cutting a duplicate key for you. But if something goes wrong with that key, do you have any recourse? How can you be sure that the machine did not store a memory of your key’s exact imprint along with your information so that anyone could access that machine’s information and thus the key to your home, business or storage locker? The only way to ensure that your key is made right and that your information is secure is to trust it to a professional, licensed, insured local locksmith.
So how do you find a trustworthy professional locksmith in your area?
