There will come a time when you may find yourself in a situation where you need a locksmith. Whether it's to replace the locks in your home, you've lost your keys or to help you if you've locked yourself out, it's good to have a reputable residential locksmith selected before you're in an emergency and need one. So how do you find the best residential locksmith in Edmonton? There are many websites claiming to be reputable locksmith companies but many of the phone numbers listed will go to a call center in an entirely different location. Knowing who to call and their reputation is important. Here are some things to look for when finding a residential locksmith.

Licensed by Province

Every residential locksmith in Alberta needs to be licensed by the Province of Alberta. They also are required to show you their pick license when asked. 

Better Business Bureau

Be sure to look up your potential residential locksmith with the Better Business Bureau (BBB). You'll be able to read reviews and complaints of companies. It's best to avoid companies with low ratings for obvious reasons.

Word of Mouth

Talk to your friends and family that live in the area for their recommendations for a locksmith. People are always willing to talk about good experiences they've had with local businesses.

Online Reviews

Online Reviews are a very useful tool in today's world. Lots of local businesses also have business pages on social media where you can read reviews and possible complaints. Online reviews are the modern version of word of mouth.

Upfront Prices

Unfortunately, many companies will advertise a price on their website or even on the phone and then charge you a higher price after performing the service. Be sure to call and verify the price before having the residential locksmith come out, and verify when they arrive as well. A professional locksmith will always be upfront with their prices without any hidden fees.
