Locksmith Safety Tips for the Holidays

Double-check your locks: Before heading out for holiday festivities, make sure all doors and windows are securely locked. A small oversight can lead to big problems.

Upgrade your locks: Consider investing in high-security locks for added protection. It’s a worthwhile investment to deter potential intruders during the holiday season.

Be discreet with keys: Avoid leaving spare keys in obvious places. Instead, give them to a trusted neighbour or friend. Burglars often target homes with easy access points.

Install security systems: A visible security system can act as a strong deterrent. Whether it’s alarms, cameras, or motion sensors, these measures add an extra layer of protection.

Secure your car: Don’t forget about your vehicle. Park in well-lit areas, and never leave valuables in plain sight. Consider steering wheel locks or other anti-theft devices for extra security.

TIPS TO AVOID LOCKSMITH SCAMS

key cutting near me, automotive locksmith near me, car key locksmith near me | NorthRiding Mobile Locksmith & Safe Technician

Take the time to find a reliable, local locksmith before you need one in an emergency.

Locksmith scams tend to target home and car owners when they’re at their most vulnerable … in an emergency and needing immediate assistance.

Many consumers think they’re doing the right thing by searching online for a local locksmith, in some cases these locksmiths are run by call centres, in other instances they may not be trained as locksmiths but are in fact handymen.

To avoid hiring an unskilled locksmith to solve your locked-out problem, take the time to research the company first.

Here are some tips to follow before you hire:

Look for a truly “local” locksmith: The best way to know whether a locksmith is trustworthy is to research them in advance. Call them, ask them detailed questions and check their reviews. If you’re in a hurry, be wary of locksmith companies that answer calls with generic phrases like “locksmith services,” rather than a specific name. If a locksmith cannot or will not provide the business’ legal name – FIND ANOTHER LOCKSMITH.

Ask for a quote: The average locksmith callout starts from approx. R 500, what customers need to take into account is, you’re paying to get a locksmith shop at your home, and with that, there’s an overhead; a locksmith’s fee pays for tools, continued training and transportation to and from a job. No skilled or reputable locksmith that does not charge a callout could remain in business. Get an estimate before any work begins, including emergency service. Don’t hire a locksmith who refuses to provide a quote.

Inquire about additional charges: ask about extra charges for things like emergency hours, mileage or service call minimums before you agree to have the work performed. The scammers might also claim the lock on your home or car is obsolete and needs to be replaced. They’ll charge hundreds of rands to replace the lock with what they claim is a high-security lock, but in reality, it’s a cheap lock offering little protection. Reputable locksmiths should be able to answer questions about the intended repair including how they’ll get into your car or home, and the cost of those services. If the locksmith refuses to answer – HANG UP!. This is a sign of someone who either doesn’t know what they’re doing or plans to overcharge you for a job.

Watch out for fluctuating bids: If the locksmith’s on-site price doesn’t match the phone estimate, don’t just accept the adjusted price and pay the bill without an explanation. Some locksmiths may demand payment after doing shoddy work or inflating the bill; a reputable company won’t drastically change the quoted price without discussing it with the client first.

Don’t allow “destructive entry” by a locksmith: If you’re locked out, be wary of locksmiths who recommend or insist on drilling / breaking the lock, forcing you to replace it. There are rare occasions where drilling is necessary, but this should be the last option as most experienced locksmiths possess the skills and tools to unlock almost any door. High security locks are designed to stop people from bumping or picking a door open, and they require specialised keys cut to comply with the lock’s grooves. In these cases, the locksmith may use a cheaper replacement lock as a temporary option while sourcing / ordering a replacement lock of the same security level (with your approval on receipt of a quote for the replacement lock).

QUESTIONS TO ASK A LOCKSMITH BEFORE HIRING

Ask these questions before hiring a locksmith. If a business can’t provide detailed answers, don’t hire them.

  • Where area do you operate in?
  • Do you need a picture of the lock?•
  • Can you give me a quote? •
  • What factors will cause this price to change?•
  • Do you require cash, or can I pay with an e-wallet or credit card?•
  • What’s the name of the locksmith who will be coming?

How do I get a new key for my car?

To get a new key for your car you will need to supply Jay with the following:

  1. Make, model and year of vehicle
  2. VIN (vehicle identification number) found on your licence disc
  3. Copy of licence disc (in some instances)

Cost Impacting Factors

The cost to get a new car cut all depends on your car make, model and year. This then depends on parts and tokens required for car key programming and if the car key is basic or remote.

  1. The make of vehicle – a Ford Fiesta will normally be cheaper than a Land Rover
  2. The model and year of car – The year and model of vehicle can impact the price
  3. The type of car key – Do you have a remote fob or transponder car key?
  4. Availability of your keys – Do you have spare car keys that can be copied, or have you lost your keys? Having no spare key will be the most expensive option.
  5. If you have lost your car keys, we can delete the vehicle’s database history so if they are found by someone else or stolen, they will be inoperable.

We recommend you get quotes from at least three locksmiths in your area, who, will often be cheaper than your local dealership.

Then give Jay a call on 082 651 6416 for guaranteed service satisfaction.

Customer satisfaction is key

Customer satisfaction is key

Customer satisfaction is one of the foundations of the exceptional relationship, sometimes referred to as true customer loyalty. Because of this it is important to hit the essentials of customer satisfaction (reliably and repeatedly) so that you don’t let down those customers you ultimately hope to convert to loyalty.

Customer satisfaction is based on four predictable factors; i.e. customers are satisfied whenever they consistently receive:
1. A perfect product;
2. Delivered by a caring, friendly person;
3. In a timely fashion;. . . with (because any of those three elements may misfire)
4. The support of an effective problem resolution process.

At Northriding Mobile Locksmith, Jay strives to achieve all four of these factors with 100% of his jobs, so, in the unlikely event that you have an issue shortly after a job is done, we ask that you contact him (on 082 651 6416) to seek a resolution so that he may achieve true customer loyalty.
