What type of warranty do locksmiths provide?
Unfortunately, not all locksmiths offer warranties. Locksmith companies usually provide guarantees for the manufacturer’s products they sell and install. As a rule, manufacturers offer a one-year warranty. If something goes wrong with a product your locksmith installed, you will need to contact the manufacturer directly.
When you hire a professional locksmith company, the chances that their locksmiths use only quality products are much higher. With higher quality locks a guarantee may never be used but it’s nice to have anyway. Some locksmith companies provide work warranties, which means that you will get a guarantee for a specified period. It will cover the purchased and installed products in some cases. However, obviously, it won’t cover products that have been damaged due to negligence or misuse. So, asking about the warranty when hiring a locksmith is the correct and intelligent decision. With this you may avoid unpleasant surprises in the future and if needed get them resolved much easier. When looking for a company try your hardest to look for a company that offers warranties. However, in most case scenarios if you don’t ask for it you won’t get it. So make sure that in cases of an accident, that out of panic, you don’t just choose the first company that you reach. That’s why we always recommend being ready for these situations by remembering to always ask for a proper warranty. It would also be wise to allow some time to find a local locksmith that provides all the needed services. One that has an acceptable price schedule and offers a warranty. It may happen you won’t ever need to call them, but in case something does happen, you will thank yourself for having been prudent.
Tips on how to hire a locksmith you can trust
Locksmith problems are pretty stressful. Unfortunately the world has its share of imposters and scams and sometimes, you might meet one of them. Hiring the right professional locksmith company is half the solution in guaranteeing that everything will be done correctly and will last.The following are a few tips on how to avoid locksmith scams:
Don’t use no-name companies.
Look for another company if they won’t give you the legal name of their business.
Look for legitimate locksmith branding on the vehicles.
Scams usually operate out of unmarked, unbranded cars.
Check their reviews.
It’s the easiest way to make sure that the company is reliable.
You can ask for the locksmith’s identification, including a locksmith license, if your state requires it. Locksmiths should also request identification to verify that you are the property owner they are going to work with.
Be cautious when you see suspiciously low prices that appear too good to be true.
They probably are. Scam locksmiths usually share very low prices, between $15 and $40 for the service. However, after you hire them and they complete the service, prices abruptly rise and sometimes even sky rocket. When hiring a professional and reliable locksmith company, you pay to have a locksmith come to you. This option comes with overhead costs. Locksmith’s tools, licensing, advertising costs and transportation aren’t cheap. So they logically can’t charge just $15. Most companies will charge at least $60 for their service.
Verify the prices before the work starts.
Of course, the price may change when locksmiths see the problem. However, in such cases, professional locksmiths can explain why.
Don’t allow the locksmith to drill your lock.
Most experienced locksmiths have the appropriate skills and tools to unlock nearly any door. Drilling is usually necessary only to open high-security locks.
Find a locksmith company in advance.
In other words, take the proper time to research for the right locksmith...

Alas, not all companies can do it for different reasons. So, if taking risks for your security isn’t an option for you and you want to protect your investment, it would be wise to find a locksmith in advance that will give you a warranty.
