    I want to hire a locksmith here in Toronto. I’ve never done this before, so I am not entirely sure how to go about it or what to look for.

    Obviously, I need someone I can trust and someone reputable and experienced. The last thing I want is a scammer showing up at my doorstep.

    When it comes to locksmiths, you need to be careful. Some of these people are good at making websites and offering cheap services. They also make false promises on their sites or ads. This is just so that people call them. Look out for these.

    Stay clear of signs or posters where you can tear off a number. Perhaps they may indeed be decent folk, but unfortunately, many aren’t qualified or licensed. They know more than you, so you may be impressed. Be careful.

    If you need a good, reliable, experienced locksmith, then I suggest Lock-Up Services. This is the one I use myself. They are 24/7 and will also handle emergencies. Sometimes, you just never know, do you? They have been around for more than 50 years. You will feel safe and confident and you need not worry.

    You can also use word-of-mouth to find a locksmith. You may have a close circle of friends and relatives who may have used a locksmith before. If they recommend someone they have used (or are using), then you can feel a bit better.

    Going for a brand name locksmith is also a good idea. A company needs to work hard to earn a certain reputation and level of trust. Someone mentioned Lockup Services. This is a good example of what I mean. I’ve heard good things about them.

    You should check out a couple of locksmiths and compare their prices, especially if cost is a consideration for you.

    I forgot to mention something earlier. Genuine locksmiths need proper licensing. This is a requirement, so make sure to ask about this. A scammer may not have one. They may say that it is being renewed and that it will be posted in a few weeks. Yeah, right! Big red flag.

    You should hire a bondable locksmith. If they’re insured and bonded, you will feel a lot better no matter what accidents happen.
