Good morning. I can say that today, for I’m not feeling feverish, nauseated, achy and weak. I had a 24 or 48 hour illness. Why do you care about my illness?  Ill explain later. As a small business owner I rely on every penny I earn. I need all of the service calls that come in. I have regular clients who rely on me. Why worry about regular clients? They make up the body and framework that keep our businesses alive. They are our “bread and butter”. Without the consistent support of our regular clients we would [&hellip

When hiring a company to provide you with a service, it can often be helpful to ask if they offer any discounts or have any coupons available for use. For instance, our company provides coupons on our web page, and we often suggest that people go online and get them. Discounted prices are not always what they appear to be however. If someone is offering a discounted trip charge, say half the price of the competition, keep in mind they do make that money back. They will either trick you into unnecessary services, or raise the prices of their services [&hellip

  Whenever you see things like “lowest price allowed” or “15$ lockouts” it is important to remember that they make somewhere. If they are losing money on the service fee, they are most certainly raising the cost of their other fees to make up the difference. The lowest cost, is rarely the lowest cost in reality and often times leads to a much higher than average cost. If someone cannot tell you an exact price, or at least a maximum price over the phone, they are most likely trying to keep their pricing open, to be exploited at a later [&hellip

Seems like everyday we notice a new scam in the area. Be cautious of the locksmith you hire, do your research and check some references. Locksmith scams are everywhere lately, and they are very hard to regulate.  Just this morning, after a quick google search, we found 3 new companies advertising under false and stolen information. One location was advertising using a local fast food chains address and the other 2 were both using the local malls. They work hard to keep their websites flashy and professional without actually listing their employees or pricing. If the company is at all [&hellip

Sometimes, hard work is the right way to go. The easiest or cheapest solution isn’t always the best idea, and often times will cost you even more in the long run, because youll either have to replace something more often because it wears out faster, or you will pay a locksmith for multiple visits

       Have you ever had one of those days where nothing seems to go your way? A morning where your rushing around to get ready for work because you’ve woken up late, or had some other issue that is keeping you off schedule? It is mornings like those that you step outside to head out to work, close the door behind you, only to realize you’ve left your keys on your kitchen table, and are now locked out of your home.         There are many ways you can prepare and prevent these sorts of occurrences from happening. Weather it is hiding a spare key under [&hellip

When it comes to emergency service, your going to have to pay a higher price, and there is a very good reason. During normal business hours, if you want a technician out “right away”, you should understand that to make this happen, he has to put his other clients on hold, drop what he is doing, and hit the road to get to you. It is a major inconvenience for most service providers, often times losing the business of the customers he or she put on hold to get to you. In our profession, Emergency calls are generally people locked [&hellip

Many people don’t understand how difficult, yet inexpensive it really is to open a locked car. When I tell someone it will be sixty five dollars just to open the door, they done understand that it barely covers our cost to get on site. They feel that breaking the window, or scratching their paint up with a coat hanger would be a more reasonable option, only to later discover how unlikely it is that it will be a success, and how much damage has been done. Do the smart thing, call a locksmith. At least that way your insured of a damage free [&hellip

Its very common for home owners to give keys out to their friends, family and neighbors. Its not a bad thing, as sometimes it is quite convenient to give trust worthy people access to your home. In an emergency, it could easily save you a lot of time and money, but when you buy a used home, however,  it’s hard to say who the previous owner gave keys too. If your ever in doubt as to who has access to your home, do the smart thing, call a locksmith to change your locks and ensure you are the only one with keys
