It’s amazing how little effort some people put into finding a local Pickering locksmith. They see a local address or a company name with the word ‘Pickering’ and they assume the company is legit – and why wouldn’t they? These are things that one would expect from a reputable local company, but that’s not always the case.
Bee Safe & Lock are local locksmith professionals who have been servicing Pickering for over 25 years. From our experience, we’ve put together some tips that you can use to help you find a trustworthy locksmith.
Tip #1: Verify the business
Ask your local Pickering locksmith where they are located and then Google the address. If you’re unable to find them online that should send up a red flag. Other questions to ask include – do they have uniformed employees? Are they bonded and insured? Are your service vehicles lettered? You should be wary of locksmiths who show up in cars and work out of their trunk.
Tip #2: Get a referral or recommendation
Ask your friends and co-workers if they’ve used a locksmith in the past. Ask them about their experience and whether or not they would recommend their services. Many of our customers who were looking for a local Pickering locksmith were referred to us by someone they know!
Tip #3: Consider more than the price
We understand that price is a consideration when researching a local Pickering locksmith, but it shouldn’t be the only criteria. Unfortunately, many scammers in this industry will provide you with a low quote and then claim the work can’t be done as quoted. We’ve even seen instances where customers have been charged for hardware that was not needed.
Tip #4: Check their credentials & qualifications
Another good tip is to ask the locksmith what high-security options they have. Some of the best companies only sell to reputable locksmiths such as Medeco. Bee Safe & Lock is proud to be a Medeco Authorized Dealer and has been for many years. We are also an Allegion Locksmith Partner who make some of the best brands in the market including Schlage, LCN and Von Duprin.
Once you’ve done your research, you will see that Bee Safe & Lock meets all the requirements of a trusted, local Pickering locksmith. Be sure to save our number and bookmark our site so you can reach out to us the next time you need locksmith services for your home or business.
