Which Miami Locksmith Should You Go For?
For some unexplainable reason, your front door key broke into the lock before hopefully leaving the house for work or an errand and thus you have to contact a locksmith. Oftentimes, those looking for locksmiths, or any kind of services, will do a web search where a hundred possible results can be displayed; the mere thought of going through the list is already overwhelming. Taking into account all the listings, how can one evaluate all these potential locksmiths within a short period of time?
Of course you may contact the first locksmith service on the list because there is a reason that they ranked high up on the list but don’t hire them if they can’t answer the following questions.
Don’t Hire Locksmiths if They Answer the Following Questions.
Is Your Company Insured or Licensed?
All the technicians hired under the company have to be insured, but the license of locksmiths will depend if the state that they are located in requires it. The locksmiths themselves should know if they require licensing under the law of their state; for locksmiths who aren’t licensed, they’ll explain that the state will not require it. If the locksmith you’re talking to is not insured in any way, then it’s time to look elsewhere.
What Other Services is Available in Your Company? (Ask this before telling them the services you seek.)
There are times when technicians say ‘of course we know how to do that’ even though it may be the first time they’ll handle that kind of case but they do this usually with the best of intentions. After the job, there’s still the possibility that you’ll end up with below standard results which might require a call from another company to fix the problem.
Majority of technicians working for locksmith companies or businesses can easily remove broken keys from door locks, but when you need services with other things like a safe lock acting up, door work performed or an electrified hardware, you need a specialist on the field.
How Long is the Warranty Period?
Trusted locksmith services and technicians typically offer warranty period for a minimum of 30 days in order to cover a hardware or installation issues. In case they can’t offer a minimum coverage of 30 days, look somewhere else.
What are the Rates?
Prices for services aren’t really a sure indication of the quality of services that locksmiths and technicians can offer but they are helpful information that you should have before finalizing your decision. There are those that charge using a piece-work rate; a fixed amount is charged per task. If the service you seek is a rekeyed lock, then they charge per hour for every lock.
