As the go-to 24-hour locksmith in the Felton area, we strongly believe that finding someone you can trust is absolutely vital. We’ve mentioned it a number of times on our blog, but we have heard of too many people who have either been ripped off or just flat out treated terribly by the people who claimed to be there to help. This is unacceptable to us.

That’s why in today’s blog, we’d like to take a look at a list of three qualities every locksmith should have. Whether you’re in our neck of the woods or you have stumbled across our blog from elsewhere in the world, we want you to know that we believe that the people you rely on for help in your time of need should be held to a high standard. Keep reading to learn more.

You Should Judge Your Locksmith By These Qualities:


Unfortunately we’ve heard about a number of different people who were quoted a surprisingly low price when they first called in, but were then asked to pay several times the cost of their quote when it actually came time to end the transaction. That’s not okay. Of course there are times when an initial quote won’t cover the work that actually needs to be done, but dealing with an honest person helps to negate this issue quite a bit.


We often say that honesty and integrity go hand in hand. We also believe that this is an incredibly vital quality that your locksmith should have! In other words, you want to work with someone who has the experience needed to back up the claims that they make. At Pro-Lock and Safe, we have more than three decades of experience, ensuring that our professional integrity is never compromised. We take pride in our work and we’re constantly seeking to learn even more about our craft.


This one should almost go without saying, but if you’re in an emergency situation where you’re locked out of your car or your home, you want someone who is going to be there quickly. Again, we’ve heard some horror stories in regards to how timely some businesses are and we believe that punctuality is the key to running a business the right way. After all, when you’re locked out, would you rather spend 10 minutes waiting for someone to show up and help or 45 minutes of wondering what was going on and if you needed to call again to make sure they were actually coming? We would opt for the former every time.
