Knowing when a locksmith is legitimate

The way people source a locksmith in today’s day and age is commonly through the use of internet searches. Although extremely convenient, this can provide a platform for fraudulent practitioners. This is unfortunate, as it can give our industry a bad name as fakes are manipulating and managing to reach out to the public in more sophisticated ways. Fortunately you never have to worry about this if you deal with us; the best company of locksmiths Northampton has.

If you want to protect yourself from potential locksmith fraud, keep the following in mind.

Checking for reliability should be at the forefront of your mind when searching for legitimate locksmiths. This especially applies in emergencies. When first finding one, asking what their company address is along with how they refer to themselves are good initial indicators. You can then search for the address and be able to catch them out if they only refer to themselves as ‘locksmith services’, for example. Additionally, reviews help with guaranteeing they are genuine.

When arranging for someone to come out, insist they show identification upon arrival. If they are a genuine locksmith, they will show registry with the Master Locksmiths Association. This ensures they are inspected and qualified. Also looking out for the noted logo on their vehicle will indicate legitimacy.

Another telltale sign is if said locksmith keeps changing costs. Most jobs should come with a fixed fee. Highly accredited and professional locksmiths generally only have set prices for each service they provide. Not only will typical fraudsters try and get as much money out of you as possible, but will also often claim you need more work doing than you actually do.
