What to Look for in a Mobile Locksmith

Being locked out of your home or losing your car keys can be an extremely frustrating situation. When this occurs you want to already have a vetted mobile locksmith who will be able to assist you rather than having to find one on the spot. It is highly recommended that you first find a locksmith in your area, that can be trusted, before you ever are in need of service. If you are not prepared and find yourself in need of locksmith service, you can easily be fooled into paying astronomical amounts for less than professional service. Pronto Locksmiths has tips on what to look for in your mobile locksmith when vetting companies. Finding a locksmith who suites your needs before any service is needed, will help you to save money and hassle in the long run.

24 Hour Locksmith Availability

You never know when you may find yourself locked out of your home or vehicle, so it is best to have a locksmith already saved to mobile device who will be able to assist you. When vetting locksmith companies make sure to ask if they are available 24/7 for service. It is also important to ask whether it will also be a professional completing overnight service and not an apprentice in training. Additionally, you will want to ask what the rate for overnight service is compared to the rate during normal business hours. All of this information will help you to decide if that company is right as your 24 hour locksmith.


As mentioned above, asking for pricing is crucial when choosing a locksmith. Before choosing your locksmith for service, ask the price of likely services that you may need. Since price can differ based on your location, ask for a price quote for lock outs near your work and home. It is also recommended to ask the locksmith a price for the replacement of your car key, this is important to know since his price will likely be much cheaper than that of the dealership. All of this will help you to make an informed decision for your which locksmith should be yours, but beware, if a locksmith can not offer you a price quote for a specific service they may be trying to pull the bait-and-switch tactic on you and should be avoided.

Service Area and Professionalism

It is obviously crucial to check the service area of the locksmith that is going to be providing service for you. As mentioned above, the distance a locksmith has to travel can affect pricing, so make sure that you are within the service area of your locksmith at both your home and work. Lastly, but most certainly not least, check the professional credentials of the locksmith which you are choosing. You want to make sure that only a true professional is completing service on your home or vehicle. By choosing a professional, like Pronto Locksmiths, you can not only rely on the locksmith for emergency services, but also use his training and expertise to help upgrade your home or commercial security.

By taking the time to simply call a few local locksmiths before you are ever in need of service, you can prevent large charges and unexpected hassles in the future. All it takes is just a few short minutes, to call your local locksmith to check a few basic details which will give you peace of mind that you will always be able to reach a professional when you are in need of emergency locksmith services.
