There are a ton of Dallas locksmith companies through the DFW and sometimes it can be a little overwhelming.
It is also really hard to trust because of the vast number of illegal businesses out there. You never know if your serviceman or woman is in the US legally or illegally and if they are even qualified to do the job you are hiring them for. It can be very stressful choosing a valid locksmith and many times the outcome can be unpredictable.
Dallas locksmith businesses are very prevalent in the DFW and we have found that all the ILLEGAL ones are using800#’s. Yes when you see them on Google Places or any other site that it is using 800 numbers you know now to BEWARE of such sites.
Tell Tale Signs of Scamming Locksmith:
- No Better Business Bureau Listing on their site
- Shows 800, 888, or 866 as the primary number to call
- Lists other states and cities outside Dallas and Fort Worth
- Domain names do not match with locksmith business, for example thepiratesofthemississippi.com
Don’t Get Baited by a Cheap Price
The most common scam websites for Dallas locksmith companies you will find are promoting extremely cheap unlock services. For example, these people will talk about how you can get your car open for only $10 – $15 or rekey your house for $20.
When you think about it that is an unrealistic price considering all the overhead that needs to be covered to stay in business. Think of it this way, on each job the business owner has to cover:
- Maintenance on the vehicle he/she drives
- Pay a licensed professional locksmith
- Pay for the gas and auto insurance
- Pay for liability insurance for property
- State licensing fees
- Tools and hardware
After covering all the costs listed above they still have to try and cover a profit. In the end, no company big or small can cover their at a $10 to $20 price point.
Your best bet in finding a real and genuine Dallas locksmith that is not over priced who will do the work correctly. You can never be to careful when it comes to things like that; you just don’t any one coming to your vehicle or home. So make sure you stay safe!
