Are You Licensed, Bonded and Insured?

This is one of the most important questions to ask a locksmith company before requesting their service. Being a locksmith, like being an electrician or carpenter, is a skilled service that requires hours of on and off the job training to complete successfully. You would not hire someone who is not trained to handle electricity to run wires in your home, so why would you let an untrained locksmith work on your home also?

The locks on your home provide the security that keeps your family safe at night so you want them to be in full working condition at all times. This is not always true when dealing with an unlicensed and untrained locksmith, it can actually result in multiple trips to your home by the so called “locksmith” to complete what would be a rather simple job for a skilled locksmith. It can also become quite expensive to go with an untrained locksmith because if the locksmith is unable to successfully install or repair a lock the first time you will likely be charged for the locksmith to come back out to your location to complete the service.

Many untrained and unlicensed locksmith also can not complete most locksmith services that a trained locksmith like Philadelphia Locksmith can. Transponder car keys, high security locks and ignition changes are all services which a locksmith that is not properly licensed can not complete.

This is why it is always a smart idea to choose a locksmith group such as Philadelphia Locksmith because they understand completely the mechanisms within most locks and can properly diagnose any problems you may be having at home.
