For Mobile Locksmith Fast Response is Crucial

There is no doubting the convenience that a locksmith is able to offer customers, but having mobile capabilities is just a part of what makes them so convenient. Without fast response, a mobile locksmith is severely limited to the amount of convenience that he is able to offer to any individual customer. This is why for any mobile locksmith to be effective he must be able to respond extremely quickly in order to provide emergency services. For many individuals, they do not think about a locksmith until they are in a situation where they have to call one. In these cases the responding locksmith must be able to offer fast response in order to offer that customer the greatest amount of convenience.

Fast Response When Locked Out

When customers look for fast response from a mobile locksmith, in a majority of cases, they are locked out of their home or vehicle. If you have ever found yourself locked out of your home or vehicle before, then you understand exactly how frustrating this can be. Once that locked out customer calls, the mobile locksmith must be ready to immediately begin towards their location. In many cases, the locksmith who is called will already be out in the field waiting to receive a service request. It is for this reason that mobile locksmiths are most convenient. Since these professionals are already in the field, they could be much closer to your location allowing for even faster response time. Of course, if an individual were to call to a locksmith who had an extremely sluggish response time it would be unlikely that the locksmith would stay in business for long. When it comes to mobile locksmiths fast response when customers are locked out can be key to a successful career.

Whether it is due to a compressed schedule, work or other obligations, sometimes people are just in a rush. Having a mobile locksmith that they can trust is key to keeping to their busy schedules. Losing your car keys can be an expensive and inconvenient endeavor if you do not know a locksmith who can provide replacement car keys.

Could KeyMe Come to Brisbane?

Smart technology is helping individuals in nearly every aspect of their daily life. One area which smart technology has not been able to fully assist individuals yet has been when they find themselves locked out of their home. Unless you are one of the very small percentage of residents who uses smart lock technology, then you likely have to turn to a Brisbane locksmith to provide you with the assistance that you need. One American company wants to make this a thing of the past.

KeyMe Not Yet in AU

KeyMe is the American company that has attempted to make it easy for individuals to get replacement keys when they have lost their existing key or have locked themselves out. Initially being tested in New York City, KeyMe is a smart phone application which allows you to take a photo of your existing key in order to store a copy of it in “the cloud”. KeyMe has partnered with 7-Eleven to put their kiosks inside of some franchise locations. The thought being, that New Yorkers who copied their keys using the KeyMe application could simply walk down the street to get a replacement key from the kiosk inside of 7-Eleven. Additionally, KeyMe users can also order a copy of their key from the KeyMe website and have it sent to their address. While KeyMe may have a solid idea, there are definite security concerns which arise.

KeyMe Security Concerns

There are a few security concerns which arise from the use of smart technology to store sensitive information like the exact cuts for your house key, which KeyMe has attempted to address. The first security concern is that anyone who has the application would be able to copy your key with just a simple picture being taken. While KeyMe does require that a credit card be used which has a billing address which matches where the key is being sent, there is no way for their image to authenticate whether you are authorized to make that key or not. Some people may say, ‘the same can be said for a hardware store’, however it is much more difficult for a thief to steal your key and take it to the store than simply snap a picture of it. The second main security concern deals with the way that KeyMe stores the copies of your keys. A skilled computer hacker may be able to penetrate KeyMe’s security and with your information on file they would be able to determine which keys could be used in which locations.

For the time being, KeyMe has to plans to expand into the Brisbane area. Since their initial testing is still ongoing it is difficult to judge what the widespread use of a service like this could mean for residents of Brisbane. KeyMe could find a niche as an easy way to get back in when locked out, but only if they are able to remedy some of the security concerns that currently exist. For professional locksmiths, KeyMe should not be too much of a concern. Emergency lockouts certainly constitute a part of their business, but other lock and key services still require the training and experience that only a professional locksmith can bring you.

Why Choose a Mobile Locksmith in Brisbane?

In the past, it was not common to find a mobile locksmith to complete services for you. When you needed a lock or key service completed, you would have needed to get yourself, and your equipment, to the locksmith’s shop in order for him to complete the service that you needed. One obvious drawback to this was that emergency services could not be completed in an effective manner. This is why many locksmiths, such as Pronto Locksmiths, have made the change to offer their services in a mainly mobile fashion. Being a mobile locksmith allows for technicians, such as our professional, to offer a much wider range of services in a much more convenient fashion.

Car Locksmith Services

Perhaps the biggest area that customers benefitted from the move to mobile service from locksmiths is through the automotive locksmith services that these professionals were able to offer. Before locksmiths made the move to operating in a mobile fashion you would have needed to get your vehicle towed to the local dealership in order for them to provide you with replacement car keys or ignition repair. This left you footing a hefty towing bill before any service was completed and often left you without a vehicle for an inconvenient stretch of time. Now for Brisbane residents it is as easy as making one call to a car locksmith like Pronto Locksmiths to have services completed at your car’s location. A true professional, like Pronto’s Brisbane locksmith, comes with all of the tools and parts necessary to provide you with service right on the spot. Even transponder car keys can be cut and programmed to your vehicle without the need for going to your local dealership. Of course, operating in a mobile fashion allows for locksmiths to cover a larger area than they would have otherwise, while also offering faster response times. This allows for customers who are locked out of their car to get emergency locksmith services extremely quickly.

Mobile Locksmiths Offer Convenience

For home and business owners the most palpable change that was felt when locksmiths made the move to operating in a mobile fashion is that they were able to receive the services that they needed in a more convenient way than ever. Lock installation is one service which became extremely convenient to have completed. Rather than having to drive around to multiple hardware stores looking at models and discussing your needs with employees, a mobile locksmith is able to bring a better selection of locks directly to you. Since the one bringing you the locks is also a trained professional, they are the perfect individual to provide professional recommendations based on your use and needs. This cuts out a large amount of hassle, especially for business owner who does not want to interrupt their normal flow of business. Just like with car lockouts, it is much easier for a locksmith to respond to a business or residential lockout when he is already inside of his service vehicle. This allows for you to get back inside, and back to your original plans, much more quickly.

transponder car keys

Transponder car keys are no longer a hassle to get replaced. Simply call a mobile Brisbane locksmith!

Just because locksmiths have made the move to providing services in a mobile fashion does not mean that there are not benefits to visiting the locksmith’s physical store. For any Brisbane locksmith, including Pronto Locksmiths, it is much cheaper, and likely easier for the customer, to come directly to the locksmith shop to have a regular house key copied. Additionally, it can be helpful in avoiding locksmith scams by ensuring that the locksmith that you are choosing does have a physical storefront that you can visit. By having this storefront information you can rest with peace of mind that if there are any residual problems with the service you receive, that the locksmith company will stand behind the work they have completed. When you need a locksmith, turn to the mobile locksmith at Pronto Locksmiths for any of your automotive, commercial or residential needs.
