There is one type of tradesman above all others that you need to arrive in a hurry, that is the Locksmith when you are locked out. That is when you need to ask the question ‘is there a locksmith near me?’.
What you need to look for is a genuine local company. Many advertising on the internet and elsewhere are nothing more than a national call centre sending out sub contractors to sort your lock issues. These subbies often have to travel many miles to get to your emergency, adding to the wait and cost of the job when compared to your local locksmith who may only be just around the corner waiting for your call.
Look out for the tell-tale signs of a national call centre: Freephone numbers, an address hidden in the small print of the website, and the wording of the website are all clues when avoiding the nationals. A local tradesman will go out of his way to show his local credentials on his website, and like we said he is far more likely to be cheaper and a better skilled locksmith.
