Calling a Locksmith – What Questions to Ask

Calling a locksmith can be a highly stressful experience, especially if you have locked yourself out. Finding yourself in a difficult situation is never pleasant, and even more so when you aren’t really sure what to do. Here are some of the questions you should ask when you first contact a locksmith:

  • Do you offer a 24-hr service? Make sure a locksmith will be able to come out to you when you need them.
  • How much will it be? They should be able to give you a quotation, though of course, they won’t know the exact materials the locksmith will install. If they won’t give a guide price, beware.
  • How long will it take? Find out if there is a locksmith in your area who will be able to attend at short notice.
  • What services can be provided? Explain your situation and make sure they are the right people to help.
