Looking for a Locksmith? Make Sure They’re Approved!

Ensuring you trust whichever locksmith you choose is vastly important! Which is why you should always look for signs that the locksmith is approved. That way, you know you can expect a high quality, safe and reliable service – and you’ll avoid getting scammed.

For example, we are proud to be associated with the NNAL (National Network of Approved Locksmiths) which is testament to our first class service. Below we’ve put together some more tips to help you choose the most reliable locksmith.


Check Accreditations

The more accreditations a locksmith has, the better! Just make sure they’re all real and not just some made-up acronym. A quick search on Google is often enough to make sure.


Take a look at their Google reviews.

There’s always going to be one or two people who were having a bad day and gave a terrible rating, but if the locksmith has far more negative ratings than positive, there’s obviously something wrong. Take a look through their Google ratings and have a read through what previous clients have to say about their services. Remember to also read the reviews, rather than just looking at the stars – that way you can weed out any fake / bot reviews.


Ask around locally.

One of the most effective ways locksmiths gain business is through word of mouth, so it definitely couldn’t hurt to ask around your friends or family and see if they’ve used a locksmith recently who particularly stood out. A locksmith thrives or fails based on their reputation, so it’s often a very good way to find out which are worth your time!
