There are many reasons you might call for a locksmith. You might have locked yourself out of your house or car. Maybe you lost your keys. But why should you call a locksmith in these situations instead of trying to break in or fix the problem yourself?

Locksmiths are qualified professionals.

To become a qualified locksmith one must have completed 4 years of training. This is completed as an apprentice and combines hands on practical work with TAFE learning. Through this process a qualified locksmith has a strong knowledge of products, skills, and tools behind them to assist them in making sure you’re in safe hands. To ensure that you are hiring qualified and poilice checked locksmiths ensure they are members of the MLAA.

Painless & damage free

Save yourself time and money by calling someone for help first. It might seem like smashing the car window is a great idea to regain access to your car. Except that now you have the cost of a broken window on your hands (if not also some blood). Replacing the window isn’t cheap and probably not cheaper than it would of been to call out a locksmith to help. If the keys were in the vehicle they would be able to unlock a door for you without breaking anything. If you have lost your keys they can cut you a new one and have you moving again.

It is the job of a professional locksmith to safely open locks and gain entry without needing to cause damage. It is only in very rare situations that drilling a lock might be the chosen route. (You can read more about that here.)

Expert knowledge
