Armstrong Locksmith Warns of the Dangers of Unlicensed Locksmith Operators
Nashville, 26th December 2019 – While more Americans are looking for smarter and more efficient methods of securing their homes and vehicles, a local Nashville locksmith is issuing a strong warning to be conscious of which Locksmith Companies they use.
Rahim Ezzadpanah, the owner of Armstrong Locksmiths, based in Nashville, says he has noticed an increase in unlicensed Locksmiths operating in the region and wants to warn residents to be cautious when acquiring services from those scammers who advertise online.
“Locksmiths have access to your personal and home security, and for this reason, this type of work requires a license. Without one, it’s easy to be scammed and potentially expose yourself and your family to danger,” Rahim says, “There are so many scammers who are adverting on large online platforms, such as Google, but most often, they are not licensed and do not represent a legitimate business. As a local, family-owned business, we care about our customers and we always want to make sure they get the best service, that keeps their safety at heart.”
Armstrong Locksmiths offer residential and commercial locksmith services as well as automotive locksmith services, emergency lockout, car key replacement, residential rekey, key programming and lock installations. These services often involve interacting with customers at their own homes and ensuring that those who are locked out, are indeed the owners of the vehicle or property. Years of training and experience mean they are equipped to professionally deal with these situations to ensure a safe and secure outcome for all. They are also known for some of the most affordable locksmith costs in Nashville.
In contrast, fraudulent locksmiths often make big promises in terms of their response time and pricing, but end up arriving hours later and potentially cause damage that requires additional spending or convince homeowners to part with large sums of money by implying the job is more complex than it is.
“There are certain red flags when it comes to fraudulent locksmiths,” says Rahim, “My recommendation is to first check if they are a legitimate company with an address, telephone number, and website. Next, contact them to enquire whether they are a licensed operator, and lastly, get exact pricing upfront before confirming any work. If the supplier cannot provide these details, there’s a good chance that they are not legitimate. Something else to look out for would be whether the locksmith who arrives is wearing a uniform or is willing to provide ID. As a member of the ALOA – American Locksmith Association – we are fully licensed, bonded, and insured, which means that our team respects our client’s belongings, and treats their property with care.”
