the lock guy

Your initial step in finding a good locksmith should be to ask for recommendations. Seeking referrals for any good trades individual is something that you can do via members of the family, friends, work colleagues along with other acquaintances who you can trust. Checking online testimonials online, video testimonials, online reviews and other types of written and audio/video recommendations can nonetheless be useful. However, you might want to try taking some of these having a pinch of salt and consider a locksmith's reputation by asking real people in the real world, especially those who are trustworthy themselves and who may have had a positive experience with a particular locksmith.

Are they going to arrive promptly?

There's nothing worst than waiting on the locksmith, or other type of trades person for that matter, who either arrives after stated, the next day when it should have been today or perhaps doesn't turn up at all. This kind of situation could be a real let down and I understand your frustration if the has ever became of you. This kind of scenario can be avoided should you follow my first point of always asking for a recommendation. Don't bring in help who you haven't examined first. Also, check their qualifications, credentials, any insurance that they should have and merely watch how they assess the job. When they seem confused about how to approach a job then it's likely to be better to hire someone else.

When they can't supply you with a straight quote over the telephone based on your description from the job, then remember that either a guide price may be the only kind of quotation that they can do in this instance or they're trying to rip you off. It can be a difficult and disconcerting to allow a locksmith develop a job having no prior indication of how much it'll cost you (despite having asked how much it will cost) and then be handed a rather large bill, disproportionate for your prior expectations. These kinds of tactics are undesirable and part of your locksmith's job is to manage your expectations sufficiently so that you are able to make an educated decision if to hire them for that task.
