Stranded on the side of the road or lost all car keys? How to choose the right auto locksmith!

Sales Galmier - Monday, March 12, 2018

 

Let’s say your remote car key doesn’t work.

Maybe you’ve locked yourself out.

It could be that your keys have broken in the ignition (it happens more often than you think).

Or perhaps you’ve just lost all copies of your car keys!

Whatever the cause, you just can’t get into your own car.

If this happens to you, then you might need help from an auto locksmith!

Our cars are crucial to our routines and lives - without them, many of us would be dead in the water. Naturally, you’ll want to ensure you choose only the best auto locksmith to get you back on the road.

How do you go about doing that? We’re glad you asked! Here are some of our insider tips on how to choose the best auto locksmith for you.

 

 

Choose a well-recommended auto locksmith

When looking for an auto locksmith, our first piece of advice is to read their reviews.

Why? Because honest and accurate reviews help you gauge:

  • The quality of their work
  • Their attitude
  • The service they provide
  • Their track record for successful jobs
  • Any potential red flags
  • Pricing, and whether you’ll be able to afford their services

In this day and age, researching locksmiths comes easily. If they don’t post reviews on their website, there are plenty of other places to look for reviews:

If your friends and family members have recently called upon a local locksmith, consider asking about their experiences and opinions, too.

A simple background check in the form of reviews can give you an idea of what people thought of your auto locksmith, including their professionalism, price, and quality of work.

 

When time is of the essence, call a local!

If you’re anything like us, you need your car - even an hour of delay can thoroughly mess up your routine.

Our advice? Choose a local auto locksmith.

Distance is an important consideration in choosing a car locksmith. If your auto locksmith is within your area, they can be with you solving your key problems in as little as a few minutes.

Go further afield however, and you could be left waiting for hours… and we simply don’t have that sort of time.

At Galmier Locksmiths, we service the entire Bayside and south-east region of Melbourne.

 

 


 

Lock emergencies don’t clock-off at 5pm

Not all car key emergencies occur during business hours - you could lose your keys at any time of day!

If you want to avoid stranding yourself on the drive home after dinner with friends or a night on the town, you’ll want to choose an auto locksmith that offers out-of-hours emergency callouts.

Look for one who offers fast and reliable out-of-hours service for those lock emergencies that happen after business hours.

This gives you the confidence that no matter whencar key emergencies occur, you don’t have to be left stranded for long!

 

Choose an auto locksmith who knows their stuff!

Even if you’re not much of a petrol head, your car is precious. Naturally, you’ll want someone who knows that they’re doing to look after yours - including its locks and keys!

Make sure your auto locksmith is fully-licensed and armed with the right skills and experience for the job.

They should be qualified and have completed extensive training in certified organizations for locksmiths, such as the Master Locksmith Association of Australia (MLAA).
