WHAT TO LOOK FOR IN A LOCKSMITH I WANT TO HIRE IN HOUSTON?

Although many locksmiths will claim they are the best, there’s a lot of ways to tell which ones are really trustworthy. First, make sure the locksmith you hire has a license. Because locksmiths have access to the security systems of your home, the state of Texas licenses them as safety professionals. Would you trust a safety professional that didn’t have a license? Not likely. Locksmiths have to renew their license periodically, get background checks, and take renewal tests to keep their licenses. In addition, they have to have insurance to keep their license. Indeed, locksmith insurance protects both the Bellaire customer and the locksmith in case something goes wrong.

Second, check what others say about the locksmith. Although you might never have met the locksmith before, others surely have hired him or her. Therefore, you can find reviews of the locksmith online or from a friend. Plus, you can search a review site like Yelp, Angie’s List, or Google+. Obviously you want your locksmith to be well reviewed. However, watch out for reviews that seem too good to be true. For instance, 500 5 star reviews. If you read the reviews and they don’t sound real, they probably aren’t.

Third, educate yourself about locksmith best practices for common security problems. For example, many people don’t know that you can fix a stuck door lock with simple lubricate. Plus, if your key is stuck, just pressing in the cylinder with your thumb might release it. If you ask your locksmith about a stuck lock and they don’t give you these simple, FREE solutions, very likely they are trying to scam you.

On the other hand, a qualified locksmith will educate you about the lock and give you options ON THE PHONE before ever charging you. If they show up at your house and start charging a bunch of extra, hidden fees, then the locksmith is probably a scam.

WHAT CAN LOCKSMITHS DO?

Locksmiths can work on all kinds of entry, exit, and safety features of your home. In general, most locksmiths can work on residential, commercial, automotive, and emergency issues. In fact, you’ll see most locksmith advertise themselves in those four categories. (Obviously, Alamo Key & Lock does as well.) Since locksmiths can work on so many parts of a home, you’ll want to ask them a lot of questions to get the most out of their expertise. But let’s drill down into each of these services to better understand what a locksmith can offer you.

RESIDENTIAL LOCKSMITH IN BELLAIRE

A residential locksmith can work on different parts of the entry / exit and security of your home. For instance, you may have a stiff door handle or door lock that needs to be fixed. Anything to do with door locks, window locks, and sliding doors, a residential locksmith can handle. Also, if you want more security, residential locksmiths can install sensors, alarms, and security cameras. Although these features are more expensive, they also offer more protection. Plus, high security locks and door frame bars are available for homes that want even more safety.

Lastly, residential locksmiths can help with burglary prevention and damage repair after a break-in. And for any home with a safe or gun safe, a residential locksmith can work on those too.

COMMERCIAL LOCKSMITH IN BELLAIRE

Although commercial locksmiths can often do everything a residential locksmith can do, they can do deliver even more specialized services. For instance, commercial locksmiths can install and fix exit devices and panic bars. Of course, residential locksmiths would likely not install an exit device in a home. However, most commercial buildings have to pass safety inspections. Therefore, locksmiths must work on safety inspections, exit devices, door closers, and security systems. Indeed, commercial security systems make up a big part of a commercial locksmith’s workload. Thus, let’s look at these systems in more depth. First, access control systems give owners the power to decide who can enter and not enter a building. Second, mastery key systems help owners and facility managers give special privilege to some employees over others. Meanwhile, one manager has access to all entry points. Finally, commercial locksmiths can install specialty and custom locks and entry systems. For example, biometric locks, which are fingerprint scanners, high-security locks, lock bars, push pedals and more.

WHATS THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN RESIDENTIAL AND COMMERCIAL LOCKSMITHS?

Both a residential and commercial locksmith have licensing from the state of Texas. And usually these locksmiths are the same professional. Residential locksmiths work with home owners on their entry and exit doors, their security through their windows and sliding doors, home safes, and in general their home security. In fact, residential locksmiths have a huge responsiblity because they work on buildings that people live in. For that reason they have to be highly trained and qualified individuals. Likewise, commercial locksmiths ensure the safety of property. These locksmiths have to know the ways thiefs can break into a building and thus prevent those break-ins. In addition, they must know the latest high-tech in commercial security, and understand how to do the basics of commercial locksmithing, such as installing and repairing high-security door locks, safes, and surveillance systems.

WHAT DO AUTOMOTIVE LOCKSMITHS DO?

Auto locksmiths as the name implies works on the entry, exit, and security of cars. However, not all car locksmiths can work on every type of car. In fact, because there are so many different model vehicles available on the new and used car market, it’s important to ask your car locksmith if they can actually work on your model car. For example, the 2012 Honda introduced laser cut keys. Thus, a locksmith without a laser cut key machine can not work on a 2013 Honda. However, that same locksmith could work on a 2011 Honda. Although this is just one instance of how specialized a car locksmith must be, it’s true for most car locksmith services.

Besides getting you back into your car if you get locked out, a car locksmith can also rekey or change your locks. Especially if the lock is stiff or damaged, you may want to rekey it. Since rekeying is cheaper than changing the locks, and usually gets the same benefits, Alamo Key & Lock recommends rekeying over changing the locks.

Other services a car locksmith can deliver include extracting keys from a jammed ignition, and replacing lost or stolen car keys.

HOW TO FIND THE RIGHT BELLAIRE LOCKSMITH?

Many times, a person looking for a locksmith might be apprehensive about spending money. That’s usually the case with anyone who has never experienced hiring a locksmith before. We understand that there is a lot of stigma surrounding Bellaire Locksmith professionals. But we’re out to buck those expectations with our brand of skilled, friendly, honest service. There are myriad things you can do to ensure your locksmith is on the up and up. So you have no excuse in the event a locksmith scams you.

VERIFY THE ID OF THE BELLAIRE LOCKSMITH

One of the things you can do, and should do, is to demand to see identification. More times than not, a locksmith will have a company ID. You can trust that these IDs are legitimate forms of identification. If you find yourself in a position where you can’t tell if a Bellaire Locksmith is authentic, follow these steps. First, make sure they drive a company vehicle. If they do, make sure the vehicle has the company’s information on the side panel.

Another thing you can do is to check out the company’s website. Look for any signs of scams or fraud. These signs can include an unreasonably low rate for Bellaire Locksmith services. Anything that’s too good to be true, you should be wary of. If the website for the company looks amateurish, that’s a sign that you’re dealing with a fake company.

CHECK INSURANCE OF THE BELLAIRE LOCKSMITH

Always make sure your locksmith professional is insured too. As a result, insured locksmiths will pay if they break something in your home. It’s always best never to take a chance. Make sure your Bellaire Locksmith expert has insurance. If they are in your home and accidentally break an expensive vase or crack your television, it must be paid for. Someone has to pay for that. And that’s where the magic of insurance comes in.

Testimonials

  • As a real estate broker I often need a Houston locksmith to get a door of a property open to show a prospective buyer. I have worked with Alamo Key and Lock for a long time. Absentee homeowners often lose keys or tenants change locks to prevent the home form being shown. Alamo Key and Lock will always respond and get the door opened and a new key made. I also use them to change locks on foreclosures and evictions to prevent re-entry by the former occupants. I have been very satisfied with the service over the years.

  • They were the best and most prompt locksmiths I have experienced.

    Lly Gomez
  • I accidentally locked my car after putting my daughter in the child's seat in the back seat. It was a hot day also and I began to panic. A stranger called Alamo Key and Lock for me along with the police. I was surprised that the Houston Locksmith arrived at almost the same time as the police. The locksmith got the door opened and my daughter was fine. The policeman said if the locksmith did not come right away he would have had no choice but to break the window because seconds count. I owe a big thanks to Alamo Key and Lock for responding to my emergency so quickly.
