Safety and security are two of the highest priorities in most people’s lives. Though it would be nice to live in a perfect world, where you never had to worry about locking your car or front door, sadly that just isn’t reality.
So when you do need a locksmith, whether it be for an emergency unlock, home lock installation or even a simple key duplication, how do you know you’re going with the right one? Here are a few of the things to consider when choosing the right locksmith for your job.
Billing and Payment
No one wants a dodgy job done on something as important as their protection systems. Beware of locksmiths who quote unusually high for the job, do not have EFTPOS capabilities, or do not employ proper invoicing practices. Efficient Lock and Key is dedicated to quoting honestly and providing the right payment systems and practices you can trust.
High Quality Service and Experience
Shady locksmiths will not provide good quality service. Look for one that is dedicated to customers, shows up at agreed times and practices professional and efficient service. Our business is family-owned and has been operating for nearly a decade. We bring years of industry experience to our clients, and are constantly upgrading our training to make sure our services are the best they can be.
Time can be crucial when it comes to a lock or key job. You want to know if an issue occurs, it will be a quick turnaround to get it fixed. For example, if you experience a break-in where someone has used a key (like an ex-housemate), waiting around until morning to get the locks changed can leave you with a terrifying and sleepless night of worry.
It can also be a huge pain if you go to take the garbage out in the middle of the night and suddenly find yourself locked out of your house with no way in. That’s why Efficient Lock and Key offers 24 hours a day, 7 days a week service within Perth (including public holidays). Never choose a locksmith that will leave you in the lurch.
Make sure you make the right choice when seeking out a locksmith, for your own safety and peace of mind.
