Finding a Reputable Locksmith


It’s important to find a good, quality locksmith before you need one. Good Morning America and Seven On Your Side have both done numerous spotlights on “scammer locksmiths,” showcasing the instances across the Bay Area where a low estimate is followed up with a dramatically increased invoice and aggressive pressure for a cash payment. These scammers often lack marked company vehicles, professional uniforms, company identification, and locksmith licenses, which is a requirement in the state of California. Evidence of the “scammers” immoral overcharging has been infuriating to those of us in the security industry who take great pride in offering trustworthy and quality services to our clients. The safety and security of your home and business belongs in good hands. There are many resources available to help choose reputable service providers including but not limited to: the Better Business Bureau, Diamond Certified, Department of Consumer Affairs License Verification, Yelp.Com.
