Showing up is half the battle

Woody Allen once said “Showing up is eighty percent of life.” But it’s not just about showing up… unfortunately there are many not so honest so-called locksmiths who show up in an unmarked car, are not licensed and are unqualified.

When we come to your home or business you never have to guess who we are. We always come in a clearly marked service truck and we are licensed (as required in CT), bonded and insured.

Give us a call @ 860-678-9797 if you need locks replaced, repaired or rekeyed. Click here to see a full list of our services.

The advantage of mobile locksmiths

Sharon & JimWe are a trustworthy mobile locksmith company and because we’re not tied to a brick-and-mortar location we can offer specific advantages to our customers:

  • We provide services whether a person is at home or at their business;
  • Because we work on-the-go, we have our equipment with us and can resolve problems quickly;
  • We offer a broad range of locksmith services, not just the basics. Our services include lock repair, lock installation, dead bolt installation, panic bar installation and repair, door closer installation and repair, lock rekeying, master rekeying, house lockouts, cutting keys, duplicating keys, safe combination changes.

It’s an unfortunate reality, dishonest locksmiths are all around us. Here are a few tips on what to watch for when dealing with a mobile locksmith you’ve never worked with before:

  • They should have a truck with their company name on it;
  • Ask for their locksmith license, Connecticut (and 13 other states) require locksmiths to be licensed;
  • Ask for references;
  • Ask for a business card, many fly-by-night “locksmiths” don’t even bother to get business cards.
