reasons to call a locksmith

Some people think that locksmiths are outdated, they offer services that we just really don’t need anymore. They point out that because of the advancement of key fobs and apps that can unlock your car door, there is less of a need for locksmiths. But this is far from the truth. Whether you have a key fob or some other means of unlocking your car, people still manage to lock themselves out of their cars. We know this because we get calls for it all of the time.

And driving to your location at 1 a.m. to retrieve the keys from inside your locked car isn’t the only reason you have a need for a locksmith. In fact, there are plenty of very good reasons for people to give their locksmith a call. Bostons Locksmith, your locksmith service serving Cambridge, offers the reasons why you might have to call a locksmith.

Commercial, Residential and Auto locksmith services

Door Maintenance

Locks require maintenance in order to properly function. You can have your locksmith come to your home or place of work to clean and lubricate the locks. The last thing you want is for a lock to freeze up or otherwise fail when you are trying to lock the door as you are leaving to go to an important meeting or other urgent tasks.

Your locksmith can even fix that wobbly doorknob and will offer ways in which you can keep your home or office a safer place.

Upgrading Locks

Even if you treat your locks well and have them serviced on a regular basis, they aren’t meant to last forever and will fail at some point. When this happens, before it happens even, you can call your locksmith to swap out the locks on your home or office.

Even if your locks are all properly functioning, it still might be a good idea to change out your locks. If your locks are old, new locks are better made and harder to pick. You might also wish to swap out locks or at least have them rekeyed if you think you might have keys on the loose.

Opening a Safe

It isn’t a big deal should you forget the combination of your safe. Perhaps you wrote it down and forgot where. All you need to do is call your locksmith and they have the skills it takes to crack that safe. Don’t worry, as long as it’s your safe it is perfectly legal.

Duplicate Car Keys

You can take your car keys to the local drug store or even Walmart and have them duplicated, but it is hit or miss if they will work. But by having a locksmith make duplicate keys, you know they will work. This is because in most cases, the locksmith will make the keys at your location while you wait. And the locksmith will test them out before handing you the bill.

New Property

If you have recently purchased a new home, we sure hope you called a locksmith to have the locks switched out. You do this because you never know who the previous owners gave keys to over the years. It just isn’t worth the worry, have the locks changed out and you will sleep better at night knowing that you are the only one with keys to your home.

Adding Locks

You might have heard that there have been a few break-ins in your neighborhood. This news has prompted you to rethink your home security. Call your locksmith and get some professional advice. Adding locks might be a solution to your security problem.

Lost Keys

You lost a set of keys and don’t know what to do. Well, your first step is to give your locksmith a call. Your keys could be lost, or perhaps somebody stole them. Either way, a locksmith can help you out.

Broken Key

This happens to everybody at some point in their life, just like locking your keys in the car. Breaking a key is just a passage in life. When it does happen, all you have to do is call your locksmith and all will be right in the world again.
