When you find yourself locked out of your home or vehicle, it’s natural to wonder whether you should break a window or call a locksmith.
One of the main reasons why people choose to break a window is because it’s easier and you can deal with the broken glass the following day. What they don’t always realize is that it can be up to 10 times more expensive to replace a broken window, depending on the type of window you break.
Over and above the cost, there’s the safety risk. If you don’t know what you’re doing, you could end up injuring yourself. Not only does this result in a medical bill but window repair costs too. What’s more, a trip to the emergency room will only further delay you getting back into your home or vehicle.
Lastly, there’s the general security risk of having a broken window. You will be back in your home or vehicle but now you are susceptible to intrusion and theft, which is the biggest risk of all.
All too many customers who decided to break a window instead of calling a locksmith ended up calling a 24/7 window repair service anyway. This is because they realize too late that it’s a security hazard to go to bed with a broken window. They could have easily spent this time and money calling a mobile locksmith in Miami.
Overall, there are no good reasons to break a window instead of calling a local locksmith. The only time it ever makes sense is if a child or animal is trapped inside a home or vehicle. For all other scenarios, contact Quickly Locksmith – we are available 24/7.
