Emergency Locksmiths
Since locking yourself out of a car or house is always inconvenient and unexpected, many technicians run their business out of a truck or van instead of a storefront. These companies often offer 24/7 locksmith services every day of the year and can be at your location within a half hour. Many emergency locksmiths cover all angles of the business, but often they’re trained and certified in one specific area of the trade. For instance, they may specialize in car locks for when you’re stranded on the road and have safeguarded your keys inside the vehicle. (It’s embarrassing, but we’ve all been there.) Or, they may focus on safes that need immediate opening, whether they reside at a bank or in the home (gun safe, underground safe, etc.). Or, they concentrate on residential locks and find themselves on-call day and night to respond. Both burglaries and former romantic entanglements can create a need to change the locks.
