Listed below are a few red flags to look for prior to hiring a locksmith:

Avoid calling the 15$/19$/29$ Locksmiths who are advertising a low ball rate, since they are typically a bait and switch operation who are out to take you for a ride. In fact, the total price will surely end up much higher than average.

Be wary of companies that answer calls with generic phrases like “locksmith services,” rather than a specific name. If a locksmith cannot or will not provide the business’ legal name, find another locksmith.

When the locksmith arrives, ask for identification, including a locksmith license where applicable.

If the locksmith’s on-site price doesn’t match the phone estimate, don’t allow work to be performed. Fraudulent locksmiths often inflate the final bill and insist the customer pay in cash.

If you’re locked out, be cautious of companies that recommend or insist on drilling or replacing the lock up front. Most experienced locksmiths have the skills and tools to unlock almost any door.
