Tips for Picking an Automotive Locksmith

If you are in an emergency situation (like car lockouts) you really do not have much time to spend on thorough research for automotive locksmiths. If you are locked out of your car, you need to have an automotive locksmith install new locks. You might also even require other kinds of security work. The following are some tips to help you find legitimate local locksmiths.

  • If you have roadside assistance service, give them a call first. Roadside assistance services often come with your purchase of your car or as an add-on offered by insurance companies. You can also avail of this service separately. Roadside assistance service plans have a list of companies that have been pre-approved to perform work like jump-starting batteries, car key replacement, unlocking cars, delivering gasoline, changing flat tires, and towing.
  • Call your family or friends and ask for recommendations.
  • If you find an automotive locksmith in the phone book, through directory assistance or on the Internet, and there is a business address supplied, verify if the address indeed belongs to the locksmith. There are some dishonest companies that list street addresses so they can give the impression that they are local. In reality, these addresses belong to vacant lots, other businesses or private residents, if they ever exist. However, there are also some legitimate locksmiths that do not include their street address in listings because they are a “mobile” business. Others are reluctant to have their address listed because they work out of their homes. If a locksmith does not have a listed address, always ask why.
  • Take note of a number of automotive locksmiths, including addresses and phone numbers. This will serve as a handy reference if you ever find yourself with locked keys in car in the future.
  • If a car locksmith answers the phone in a generic manner like “locksmith services” instead of a company-specific greeting, be wary. If that business is unable to provide a legal business name or the person you are talking refuses to give out a legal business name, it is best to call another lock smith.

These are some tips you would want to keep in mind if you are looking for an automotive locksmith. The aforementioned steps might be quite simple but they can already help much in keeping you from being ripped off. Click here to know more about automotive locksmiths.
