Why You Should Find A Locksmith Before You Need One

Trust is an important element in your relationship with a locksmith. While referrals, great customer service, and level of expertise may influence you the first time you use their service, trust is built over a period of time.

Because a locksmith literally holds your life in their hands every time they handle your locks or keys, it’s important to have one that you’ve built that relationship and trust with. You don’t want to take chances with the security of your home or business.

Finding a locksmith before you need one lowers the risk of your home or business security being compromised by multiple factors.

  • Lock Emergencies Are Unpredictable’

Murphy’s Law appears to be most in effect when you have a key or lock situation. You could be closing your door on the way to an important meeting, only to realize you locked your keys inside, locked important documents in your safe or locked yourself outside of your car.

While this is the stuff of nightmares, if you already have a vetted locksmith on speed dial, you could be unlocked and on your way in under 45 minutes.

  • You Don’t Want To Rely Exclusively On Recommendations

In an emergency like the one above, you don’t want to have to call every single person you know trying to find out if they know a reliable locksmith.

This process will take time you don’t have. In the rush, you may not check the locksmith’s credentials as thoroughly as you would under normal circumstances. In the process, you end up hiring someone you would have otherwise avoided.

Having a locksmith you’ve already “battle tested” means you’ll be satisfied with the service provider and the end result, without that feeling of buyer’s regret.

  • Your Locksmith Will Have Your Information On File

It’s not just the locksmith that needs to be screened. Reputable locksmiths are legally mandated to perform certain checks to see if you are who you say you are.

Even if you’re calling a locksmith recommended by a friend or family member they still have to do this. Such checks will take time.

A locksmith you’ve already established a relationship with will have all of your information on file.

  • Locksmithing Is Highly Specialized Work

Depending on the type of lock, you don’t want to start an on-the-spot DIY project and make your situation worse.

Locks are becoming more sophisticated. For example, smart locks are connected to other areas of your home. You wouldn’t want to make a mistake that would require an expensive system reboot.

Even damage to regular door locks may require hundreds of dollars to replace.

Save yourself money by having a qualified locksmith on call.

  • You’re Assured You’ll Be Getting Quality Work

Because you know the locksmith and are confident in their abilities, you know your problem is going to be solved in a manner you’ll be pleased with.

Pre-selecting a locksmith means you’ve had time to assess whether you and they will be a good match. You know what their work ethic and skill level are like.

Many times, customer complaints and bad reviews are the results of mismatched expectations. Finding a locksmith you’re happy with before you need one, reduces the chance that this will happen.

  • You Can Avoid Adverse Consequences

Imagine being locked out of your home or car. The inconvenience isn’t just measured in time lost.

It can be measured in terms of opportunities lost. The potential client may decide not to reschedule.

It can be measured by the danger posed to your home or family. What if an elderly or disabled relative was left unsupervised inside and hurt themselves?

If Only …

These are words you hope to never have to say to yourself. Armed with the name and number of a qualified locksmith, you won’t have to.

    Our Tips For Getting The Best Locksmith Services:

    We truly care about your security. Keeping you, your family and your most valuable possessions safe is why we are in business. However, whenever you are looking to hire a residential locksmith service, here are some valuable tips to make the right choice:


    When a Miami locksmith completes their official application process, they are issued with a Locksmith ID car. Locksmiths in Miami are required to display this card at all times when performing any services, regardless of the location.
    When you’re working with the Quickly Locksmith Miami team, you can expect someone to arrive at your exact location within 15 minutes. This ensures we can get you back into your home or car as soon as possible.
    Your certified Miami locksmith’s work comes with a complete warranty for your locks, your property (doors/ hallways, etc.), and of course your well-being. If anything happens you share no liability, and your locks & security systems are 100% insured.
    A locksmith that has the right tools and years of experience can open almost any lock. If that’s not an option, the lock can always be replaced. Either way, your home and valuables will be safe and secure.
    When you are locked out of your car, the last thing you want to do is arrange a ride to a locksmith shop. The Quickly Locksmith Miami mobile unit will not only meet you at your location but also help you with a replacement car key on the spot.
    Not necessarily. If your original key has been lost or is damaged, a Miami locksmith can use a code cutter to identify the depth of grooves in a lock’s key code. This information can then be used to create a new key.
