For many Melbournians, the wide variety of options and choices of locksmiths can be (understandably) a little overwhelming.  So, if you don’t know what you should be looking for to find a good Locksmith to suit your needs, you may end up making a poor decision.

At Heidelberg Locksmiths, we want to make sure you have the best service experience, so read below to find some helpful tips on how to find a good quality locksmith in Heidelberg. By doing just a touch of research for the next time you require a locksmith, you could save a significant amount of time and money.

So just how important is getting a quality locksmith in Heidelberg?

When looking for any service, particularly when it comes to the security of you, your family, your home or business, or your valuables, we’re all looking for credibility, experience, fair pricing, reliability, qualifications, and trust. But beyond these qualities, there are some other boxes you can tick to ensure your locksmith is up to scratch, be it for residential, commercial, or automotive purposes.

Are they MLAA Members?

If your locksmith is a Master Locksmith, then you’re headed in the right direction!

The Master Locksmiths Association of Australia (MLAA) is an Australian locksmith body that is internationally recognised. In order to become a member, locksmiths must measure up to clearly defined requirements, and hold certain qualifications, security licences, and insurance. The easiest way to check if they are MLAA members is to ask if they are Master Locksmiths – and if they say yes (as well as provide their member number), then you can tick that box!

Check their pricing

Always ask for a quote prior to any service being conducted! Many locksmiths will advertise their low call out fees to entice you, especially when you’re stuck without a key, or locked out of your home or car. However, once they’ve provided their service, their fees can be exorbitant. The best thing you can do to ensure that doesn’t happen is to secure a quote before they arrive.

24/7 Availability? 

The locksmith industry is becoming increasingly more and more competitive. So, finding a locksmith that offers 24/7 service is generally a good idea to make sure that no matter what time it is, you’ll be able to have the issue resolved.

Getting Credibility Confirmation

Usually, information about locksmiths and their credibility is readily available on Google or Facebook. Checking out their website or social media pages is a great way to find reviews and ensure they are who they say they are.

Ultimately, the process of finding a good locksmith in Heidelberg is one that should be straightforward and uncomplicated. Take the time to do a bit of research to find the best locksmith to suit your needs. At Heidelberg Locksmiths – Melbourne, we know that we can provide a high-quality service you can always rely on.
