This can in some cases lead to you being highly dissatisfied and frustrated. Make sure you are working with a locksmith who has a long history in dealing with the task at hand. They should also have been referred to you preferably by a friend or work colleague. This will show them to be very competent by the work they carry out. This simple exercise can safe you from a lot of hassle and cost if you don’t do the homework.

  1. What do their current clients say?

This is especially prevalent when choosing a locksmith. Try to go and visit a place where they have already carried out work. Maybe they have replaced car keys for a neighbour, ask them what they thought. If this is not possible ask to be put in touch with some of their clients. It can only benefit you and your pocket at the end of the day. Having work carried out by an under qualified or down right bad locksmith can end up being a nightmare that you don’t need.
