There are many who wonder if they can trust the locksmith who shows up at their location and allow him to open the front door of their home and gain access to their car. What if he is not really a professional locksmith, but is in fact a scammer or a fly by night operator, out to make a quick buck? New Braunfels Locksmith Pros, a leading locksmith company, which has been serving residents of the city of New Braunfels since 2012 has valuable tips on identifying locksmith scams before getting hit by them.
Daniel Brito, chief executive of New Braunfels Locksmith Pros explains, there are many stories of people of New Braunfels getting hit by scammers pretending to be locksmiths. With most scammers the local number customers call gets redirected to a national call center. Such locksmiths don’t have a physical office, but only have an online presence and can be contacted by phone. While they do quote a reasonable fee on the phone, when the locksmith does show up, they take advantage of the customer’s desperation and charge them three or four times what was quoted.
Ms. Brito talks about the importance of performing a thorough background check before calling any locksmith. He says: “Find out if the locksmith is registered with the Department of Labor, Licensing and Regulation. Also, check them out on the Better Business Bureau website (www.bbb.org) and check out if there are any user complaints against them.”
Ms. Brito adds: “Ask them for references; interview the locksmith before hiring them. Try them out with a small job first and see how they perform. Only then consider hiring them for a bigger job. Also, make sure you fully understand the quote you’ve been given on the phone. This should match the invoice that you’re given later.”
Ms. Brito says locksmiths generally quote a “starting fee” for their service and a call out fee, which could increase depending on the number of hours of service.
