When you find yourself locked out of your own home one day or even your vehicle, it is important to keep in mind that using Google search and picking out the number one on the list may be a bad idea. The reason why is that top search results are usually advertisements that promises consumers a fee of $15 or $19 for their emergency services but the truth is that it will costs a lot more than that after they have rendered their services.
This scheme is known to be in operation for several years already.
Upon searching, you will be shown the company that carries a generic name that promises a cheap fee for their service call. The result is that a dispatcher from another state will be receiving your call.
The trick is that they can’t determine exactly the amount of the service but they will only state the starting prices of their services and majority of them are too cheap to be true.
They will employ various reasoning tactics and one of them is that the price of the service will depend on how high the security level of the specific lock that they have to unlock for you. Once the service is done, they will charge the customer with a fee worth a few hundred dollars.
The truth is that majority of the houses are using only standard types when it comes to dead bolt locks. Not many are equipped with high security locking system. If your lock is the standard type, a legitimate locksmith will tell you that it will not cost you over $150.
Another important factor to keep in mind, legitimate locksmiths will be able to give you an estimate of how much they will charge for the service. For those that refuses to give you or can’t tell you an estimated price, it is better to find another locksmith who will.
If you have locked yourself out, the key is not to panic. Search for the local locksmiths and decide on which one is best and reliable before calling a mobile locksmith in Perth.
