How to avoid being ripped off by a so called locksmith

locksmith new philadelpha

The Key To Your Success

You see the ads that read “19 Dollar Locksmith” and “$15 Service charge Locksmith” but don’t be fooled! Many unethical locksmiths use the bait and switch con to get your call. And it works more than you think!

Imagine this:
You are loading groceries into your car and set the keys in the trunk as you load. Then suddenly you close the trunk and it hits you… The keys are locked in the trunk!

What do you do? You call a locksmith to get the keys and you do it in a hurry. You might call more than one and hope they are quick! Whoever is fastest to arrive gets your business, right?

Hey and this ad on my smart phone says $15 locksmith! Maybe this won’t be so bad!

Wrong. The old adage “If it seems too good to be true” almost always will apply here.

There are some very unethical people out there that are counting on your desperation. They are also counting on you being frugal with your hard-earned cash. So when you see the $15 locksmith ads you are being lured into a web.

When they show up they change the price. You are furious! This is illegal, you say to them and you refuse to pay. On the other hand, your dinner is spoiling as you speak. You would be surprised, but many people just pay and grumble the whole way home!

How much do they up charge? Usually about 400 to 500 percent! So a $15 phone quote turns into $150 dollars instantly! Not only are the unethical locksmiths counting on your desperation and naiveté… sometimes they bully customers into paying.

What to do
Simple, call Spare Key Locksmith at (330) 340-6098 ! Located in New Philadelphia Ohio. They have an A+ rating with the BBB, a locksmith you can trust. Just check out  the reviews from their satisfied customers here.

If you are out of the area, call around and find a locksmith company that is registered with the local Better Business Bureau, Chamber of Commerce or that is a Certified Locksmith. Ask their prices, hours, and most of all ask about their business license and professional licensing or credentials. The best locksmith is one who cares about your concerns and wants to help.

They will quote prices and hopefully a flat rate on certain calls with no hidden prices or bait and switch scams or con games. Beware the Locksmith that refuses to quote a price… this is a dead give away to a con artist.

Avoid scams and con artists.  Once you have found a locksmith that is reputable, has good references and who is certified and insured, like Spare Key Locksmith, Keep their phone number on you so that you can reach them when you need them. Give the number to friends and co-workers to help them out.

Also, report unethical locksmiths to the BBB and the Federal Trade Commission.
