Locksmiths are essential to our daily lives, but choosing the right one can be a challenge. When you need service fast, it’s easy to fall prey to unscrupulous operators and become a victim. Customers call locksmiths in a hurry when they’re locked out or need their locks changed quickly; thus, not having the time to thoroughly research for a reputable company they can trust, so they call the first number they find and get a quote – only to find out later that the price doubled after the job was done.
Tal-Niv Locksmith has been established in the area to help customers like you find the right locksmith for your needs without getting ripped off. They also offer expert consultation on how to choose an honest locksmith and the importance of avoiding locksmith fraud and scams.
When in need of a residential, commercial, or automotive locksmith, it is important to be sure that the right choice is made with a legitimate company. There are many locksmith scams out there that individuals have to watch out for. Through television and similar mediums, the public has seen firsthand on local news programs the damage these fake “locksmiths” are perpetrating on the public.
Tal-Niv Locksmith is proud to offer their customers expert advice on how to avoid falling victim to these criminals and how to find a reputable company such as theirs. The company provides free consultations to all potential clients so they can learn about their options before hiring anyone. In the age of smartphones, it’s easier than ever to find a locksmith. The problem is that it’s also easier than ever for scammers to get in on the action.
Here’s how: A person leaves their house and closes the door thinking the keys are in his or her pocket, but they were accidentally left in the house and now that person is locked out. They take their phone out and Google “local locksmith” and then proceed to call the first one on the list. They answer the phone as “locksmith” without the name of the business. They say it will be about $20 to come out and open the door. When the “locksmith” gets there, they tell the customer that the lock cannot be picked open and must be drilled open for an additional $100 or so.
If you’re not careful, this can cost you a lot of money!
A reliable locksmith will usually give estimates of their prices before coming out to your location, while an unreliable one will keep dodging the question.
Another scam going around by unreliable locksmiths is key duplication: They’ll take your existing keys, copy them onto blank metal blanks and then charge you up to $100+ per key!
