There are so many choices to make when you’re ready to update the locks on your home. You may wonder which locks are the most secure, or whether you can keep your current hardware and simply do a rekey. You may also wonder who you should call to do your home rekey or lock installation in Huntington Beach. A good locksmith can help you decide if it’s time to upgrade your locks, or if you can save some money by repairing and rekeying your existing locks.
Your first important decision is finding a licensed, trained locksmith in Huntington Beach or Orange County. Because locksmithing is a competitive field, some of our customers have shared with us their stories of run-ins with unlicensed, dishonest locksmiths. Home and commercial security is important; there are three reasons why you should only ever hire a licensed, insured locksmith:
Knowledge – Certified locksmiths are skilled at lock repairs, rekeys, lock-outs, commercial security, and many other locksmith needs. With a skilled locksmith like NuKey, you get precision, quality, and speed not found with less reputable “locksmiths.”
Security – Locksmiths take pride in staying ahead of the curve when it comes to home and commercial property security. They know which products will work best for your locksmith needs. Hiring a local locksmith can help prevent you from using someone who just wants to quickly complete a job and move on, rather than build a trusting, lasting relationship.
Insurance – A professional, licensed locksmith is required to be fully insured in case of (uncommon) complications or damage. An unlicensed handiman may not offer that same peace of mind.
While it may be tempting to hire a handyman to change the locks while he’s working on other projects at your home or office, hiring a licensed locksmith like NuKey ensures that your home or commercial property will be secured properly and that all of your locks will function correctly with one key, generally.
