The importance of having a locksmith service near you!
By Elegant Lock & Key

It’s troublesome to find reliable locksmith services. Usually, locksmith services are mostly needed when you are locked out of your car or house. Many locksmith services companies have no brick-and-mortar storefront. 

Why should locksmith services have a storefront?

To avoid scams. Nowadays, it’s easy-peasy to hire on Fiverr someone to design a locksmith landing page for you. It’s cheaper than going out to a restaurant. With a budget of less than a thousand dollars, you can start your own business with Google Ads. This situation leads to many locksmith scams.

A reputable and reliable locksmith should be able to open a storefront—a place to come back when a problem with your expensive key occurs. 

What can go wrong with my car locks and key?

Losing your car keys, breaking a key in the ignition, keys locked in the trunk or vehicle, and not igniting (or run) your vehicle is one of the most frustrating things that can happen to any person. People in these situations will be much more stressed and willing to do (or give) anything to go back on the road. But if you ask me, a Uber drive will cost you much less than facing a locksmith scammer.

In different than standard house keys, car keys are more sophisticated. All modern car keys contain an electronic chip that is synchronized with the car computer. All these security features make it hard to steal your car, but on the other hand, a transponder (key FOB) key will cost a lot more than a standard metal (blank) key.

Dealing with your car keys can be dangerous. As you won’t give your bank account access code to a locksmith, you should be very careful when an untrustable person reads your car codes. Clue: He might prepare another car key chip, and all he needs to do is remember the key cutting. A locksmith shop owner will never want to hurt his reputation; they spend tons of money on a store and campaigns. Shop owners are not passing by automotive locksmith services; they are here to stay!

What can go wrong with my house keys?

If your car is essential to you, your home security and safety are a million times more important. If you ask a residential locksmith to change your locks or rekey your front door, you must trust your locksmith technician first. A scammer locksmith might drill your door lock instead of simply picking the lock, only to create more revenue. 

You can also get ripped off by a scammer locksmith. There are tons of videos on YouTube from hidden cameras. All of this is peanuts; a scammer locksmith might write down your keycodes, use them, or sell them to criminals. Anyhow, you must get a reliable locksmith near you for your house, vehicle, or business. 

What about my business keys & security?

Your house and loving ones are above all, but your commercial business is no less critical. With the business revenues, you pay your bills and feed your family. A reliable locksmith service near you is more than a regular necessity; it’s a must.

Since childhood, Locks & Keys were my favorite hobby. In 2018 I started my professional practice with several companies in upstate NY. I always knew that one day I would open a locksmith shop of my own. Elegant Lock & Key is the place where I can play with locks all day long.

He was in touch every step of the way. He was very innovative with the installation and even secured the doorframe. The rate was low and I was not made to feel uncomfortable in any way.
