How quick can a locksmith get out to where I am?
Most locksmiths are usually able to come as soon as possible depending on their backlog of current jobs to be carried out during premium business hours.
Some locksmiths offer a 24/7 emergency service which will generally incur an extra fee but in those cases they will get to you pretty quick ensuring that you can replace or fix any broken or damaged locks quickly at any time of the day or week.
There is no set price for a call out fee across the industry but in general from our experiences most locksmiths charge an extra $50-$150 for a call out outside of usual business days or hours.
Are locksmiths trustworthy?
Across the board, all locksmiths at any reputable and established locksmith company have their staff and technicians put through vigorous background checks and they have other aspects of their lives thoroughly checked over before being hired.
This is industry standard which means that you can rest assured only a trustworthy and honest technician will be carrying out any work in your business or home from the companies reviewed in our list today because each company from our list puts their staff through these checks prior to employment.
You can see just how complex the process is for locksmith's to get into the industry before they are qualified technicians on the NZ Careers Website. These guys being able to carry out this type of work is not taken for granted and they are put through vigorous training & checks prior to entering the industry.
What services can most locksmiths provide to me?
Locksmiths generally carry out work on door locks for houses or businesses. Whether it be any kind of standard key lock or work for a modern day digital type of lock they can do it all when it comes to buildings.
Some locksmiths also work on replacing lost car keys, fitting new ignition barrels into vehicles or carrying out work on home alarm and security systems.
Whether or not any given company carries out any of these types of work will be dependant on each company, each company will usually state on their website which services that they offer and how much they may charge you etc.
If you need some new locks installed in your home, car or business or if you need some broken or damaged locks fixed or replaced, choose from one of the best locksmiths in Wellington.
