The locksmith that you want to trust when your home needs to be rekeyed, your transponder key needs to be replaced, or when you’re locked out of your car at 3:00 a.m. is one that is licensed and provides a licensing number. A licensed locksmith is one that has been thoroughly vetted and background-checked. Only those who have a clean record with absolutely no questionable skeletons in their closet and who have received extensive training can receive licensing.

Bonded & Insured

You should also look for a bonded or insured locksmith. A bonded, insured locksmith will have the proper business insurance to cover the unexpected. “The unexpected” could include injury or damage that occured to their or your property. This means that if something should go wrong during your appointment that you aren’t stuck with the bill.


A mobile locksmith can provide you the service you need because they can travel to wherever you need them. A mobile locksmith will come to your home, business, or your car and perform the service that you need. If a locksmith isn’t mobile that doesn’t mean they are aren’t reputable, but they may not provide the services you need.


Not all reputable locksmiths provide 24-hour services. However, if you do need 24-hour service, you must make sure that you are calling a locksmith that is licensed, bonded, and insured. You don’t want just anyone showing up to your home, business, or car at 3:00 a.m.!
