Things to look for
- A super low service call, i.e., $10 to $20 should be a red flag. This also ties to
- not able to give you a accurate quote
- if you are locked out of your house or car they should be able to give a “to the penny” quote. Same with a rekey or a key make. Any true auto locksmith or car locksmith will be able to do this. Some vehicles may have different key options but they should be able to explain this as well as give quote for the various senerios.
- Look at their reviews read the lowest rating as well as the top ratings
- Look at the web site for areas serviced if they service all of Texas or the whole country it maybe a sign
- Texas requires all advertising to have what is call a B number or Lic number
- Affordable Locksmith of Texas B number is B18868 ask for it when you call a company
- Verify the company with TOPS (Texas Online Private Security) https://tops.portal.texas.gov/psp-self-service or for a direct link to check us out https://tops.portal.texas.gov/psp-self-service/search/result/6522?type=business you can also search a technician https://tops.portal.texas.gov/psp-self-service/search/result/34155?type=person
- When your technician arrives ask to see his or her pocket card that is required by law to be on a locksmith while performing locksmith work. The pocket card looks like this
- Go back over the quote with the technician begins work
I hope this helps someone form having their pocket picked instead of their door.
