How Do You ‘Pick’ A Locksmith?
Posted on 2nd, Jul 2019
Finding a locksmith in Sydney is easy. Finding a locksmith you can trust, not so.
To make it easier for Sydney siders to find a locksmith they can trust, we’ve put together 5 tips for those who might have in advertently locked themselves out of their car, business or home.
Is your locksmith qualified for the job?
When we say ‘qualified’, we aren’t talking about a TAFE or tertiary qualification. We are talking about whether or not the locksmith you’ve hired is qualified to do the job.
Whether or not they can open the door you’ve asked them to.
All the locksmiths at NJ’s Locksmith’s Sydney can open any door you ask them to. We never sent an apprentice out on a job unless they are accompanied by a senior locksmith who is experienced at opening doors from our firm.
What sort of reputation do they have following them?
The last thing you want is a locksmith with a Police Record following them around like a sheepdog. All our locksmiths at NJ’s Locksmith’s Sydney have had their Police Records checked by us.
So you can be sure of your safety while we get a Technician sent to you.
What are their prices like?
Locksmiths aren’t cheap in Sydney. Particularly automotive locksmiths you may hire to cut you a new Transponder key.
A transponder key can cost anywhere from $265 (if you have the spare key) to $1500 if you’ve lost it.
A good locksmith will price their services competitively. But do note, all locksmiths charge a premium for service after 5.
The rates for a locksmith in Sydney are highest after midnight. If you’re going to a bar, perhaps leave your house keys with a neighbour or in a safe place on your property.
Never under your doormat. It’s the first places thieves look.
How well located are they to you?
Locksmiths charge for services based on how long they expect a job to take them to complete.
All locksmiths take into account the time it will take them to travel from their residence to yours. Choose a locksmith who is located near to you.
Besides giving you a cheaper service, they will deliver it faster too.
How good are they are customer service?
“You come for the product, you stay for the service”, the adage says.
This tends to be true of many industries including locksmithing.
A good locksmith will place an emphasis on customer service. As one poor experience results in a customer telling at least 7 other customers about it.
