It's The Old Bait And Switch

Many locksmith companies are now advertising a low service rate like $25 or even as low as $15. When you call these companies up and ask what the charge covers, most of them will be very vague and ambiguous in their response to your completely valid question. As a consumer you are entitled to know what the charges will be upon the completion of a job. No one wants or even likes being surprised when presented with an extremely high bill for services rendered at the end of a job.

Using A Low Rate Locksmith Could Cost You More!

These low rate locksmith companies are using the old bait and switch technique that was commonplace in the early to mid 1970's. They bait consumers in by advertising a rediculously low service rate. They don't tell you what the charge covers, usually only for them to arrive at your location. What they don't want you to know is just how high the bill will go when they charge you for an hour's labour on top of that. Their low service rate just turned into a bill you won't want to have to look at, never mind pay.

Getting Vague Answers About Service Costs? Better Find Another Locksmith!

If you call a low rate locksmith company and get only vague answers to your questions concerning charges for the work that they do then maybe it is time to move on and find someone who will be straight up with their charges. If they can't be up front with what their charges will be, can you really trust them to get the job done right for you the first time? Will the services they provide be low rate too?

How Do They Stay In Business Charging Only A $25 Service Charge?

Some consumers view a low service rate as a true bargain while others take the time to look at it for what it really is. Think about it! How is it possible for this company to stay in business with such a low service rate? The answer is, they really can't! That means that there has to be a catch to this story and there always is! You are automatically billed for an hours' worth of labour regardless of whether the attending locksmith is there 5 minutes or 55 minutes. We don't think this is fair at all. These people are nothing more than opportunists preying on those who are gullible enough to believe that a discount locksmith service actually exists. Believe us, it doesn't. Everyone in this business is in the same boat. We are all just trying to earn a living and survive. Why dupe good people into believing they are getting a bargain only to turn around at the end of the job and charge them through the nose? We feel that it is operating in bad faith and no one should be allowed to run their business in this manner. There ought to be laws against this type of underhanded business advertising and practice. There should be "Truth In Advertising".

We Operate In A Transparent Manner

We believe in operating our business in a transparent manner. You, as a prospective client and a consumer really do deserve to know what the associated costs of a job will be before you ever hire our locksmith company. Ask us about any costs at all, or, the manner in which we bill our clients and we will be only too happy to provide you with the requested information. You are entitled to know!
