Nobody wants to overpay for a service or product. We get it. It’s human nature to try to find the best possible deal for the least possible amount of money. We also know that you’ve heard the old cliche, “You get what you pay for;” with every cliche there’s a small amount of truth.

Maybe you need new locks or keys made for your home or place of business. You find a company online. They aren’t licensed, but their rates are cheap, far cheaper than the average service. So you contact them, they arrive and drill out the locks. Then, they quote you a new price — one that’s ludicrously higher than the original quote. They also demand to be paid in cash. You’re understandably upset and refuse to pay it, and suddenly they’re threatening to call the police and have you charged with theft of service. Now what are you supposed to do?

Too often, there’s another phrase for an unlicensed locksmith. Scam artist. Every day, more than 200,000 Americans contact locksmiths for emergency services. Too many of them get ripped off. At Tommy’s Locksmith, we don’t think that’s right. We’re a licensed locksmith in the state of California, and can provide you with an ID number. We arrive in a clearly marked company vehicle. Furthermore, we gladly provide a written estimate before we start working and a receipt when we finish — all on company letterhead.

Don’t get ripped off. Only use a licensed and local locksmith. For more information or to schedule service, contact us online or by phone today.
