Beware the “Cheap Callout” SCAM

Don’t Be Fooled By Cheap call out pricing, Recently the locksmith industry has been inundated by “handymen & backpackers” passing themselves off as locksmiths. Unfortunately this has bought the whole industry down and ripped off the general public with the end bill which includes a $30-$45 service call, followed by exorbitant pricing on any mediocre lock work completed. These handymen/backpackers are under the impression that if they can get a hold of some basic opening tools they can take control of the locksmith industry and not be held accountable, when realistically, they are indeed only taking advantage of you the end customer, whilst you may feel your receiving good service from a reputable locksmith company at a low cost, these customers are only held to ransom in the end with the ridiculous costs accrued. It’s not all about the Call out fee, its about the end bill and not being taken advantage of! We at Locksmiths Near You, do not participate in these shady practices and will always quote a realistic end cost and always with prompt service to look after our customers and look forward to all future enquiries and customer satisfaction.
