Just moved in somewhere?
If you moved into a new place and didn’t change the keys, you have no way of knowing if the house is secure or not. Does the old owner still have a key? The plumber from six months ago? What about if the previous owner had a son, and that son gave a key to his girlfriend without the owner knowing?
The point we’re trying to make is that you should be the only one with access to your house. Rest easy at night knowing that even if some crooked contractor were to come back, he’d be locked out in the cold. Your house is your castle – make sure that only you can open the gates.
What to watch out for with locksmiths
Truth be told, when something as important as your home’s security is involved, there are a lot of things that can go wrong. Here are the common pitfalls of other locksmiths in the Matthews… and how we avoid them.
Pitfall #1: a common “tactic” of shady locksmiths is to inspect your house, give you a “rough estimate”, and then do the job. Once the job is done, that shady locksmith informs you that it actually took him twice to three times as long as he expected to finish the job, which results in your previously cheap quote skyrocketing into an exorbitantly expensive one.
We don’t do that. In fact, any skilled locksmith (that’s us!) will be able to give you a very accurate quote on how long your locks will take, no matter whether you have one or 20 to re-key.
Pitfall #2: shady locksmiths like to cut corners by using old (or simply low quality) materials. The keys you receive will snap easily. The locks you get… well, for lack of a better word, they’ll be weak. Any determined criminal will be able to kick right through them, and anyone who watched a couple YouTube videos will be able to pick them.
We don’t do that. We buy only the best. In the locksmith business, the best is Mul-T-Lock – their locks are resistant to kicks, drills, and picks. Even if someone is determined to break into your house, he won’t be able to – ever. You’re safe.
