Cincinnati EXPERT LOCK REKEY SERVICE
No one ever said that replacing a lock for your home, car, or business would be easy or cheap. Fortunately, there could be a better solution. In most cases, We can repair a lock and save you the time and expense of having to buy a new one.
How do I know if it's possible to rekey the lock or if I should replace it instead?
You would likely end up spending even more money attempting your own repair than you would hiring a professional locksmith company from the start. Each of our locksmith technicians is certified, licensed, bonded, and insured. That means they can get the job done correctly and efficiently the first time with no need for rework. Although the job of rekeying a lock might look easy, keep in mind that the people doing it are professionals who have specific training as well as the experience of having rekeyed hundreds or thousands of other keys in the past.
One of the greatest benefits of rekeying your lock instead of replacing it is the money savings. You still get a new and improved lock without having to spend the money for replacement and new installation. Best of all, you feel more secure in your home, car, or office building as well. If you're considering rekeying one or more of your locks, please contact us as soon as possible. For your convenience, we have certified locksmith technicians available 24 hours a day and 365 days a year.
What is the average turnaround time for lock rekeying?
Although this job often takes only a few minutes, it's not always possible to state upfront how long it will take to rekey your particular lock. It depends on several factors, including the brand, age, and general condition of your lock. One thing that could add to your total wait time is if we would need to get the lock you want rekeyed out of a door. It will take longer to do this with some types of locks than it will with others.
When we arrive at your home or meet you at your vehicle, our locksmiths will survey the situation and provide you with a more accurate estimate. We respect your time and will never keep you waiting any longer than necessary.
Is it possible for me to rekey my own lock?
No, we don't recommend this. Rekeying a look requires someone to have in-depth knowledge about how its inside mechanisms work as well as which pins to alter. You must complete steps in a precise order or your work will be in vain. We have seen people waste a lot of money and time attempting their own rekeying job that could have been avoided by working with a professional locksmith.
You obviously want to avoid this type of situation. At the first sign of a broken or worn lock, call us to request immediate service. We will arrive promptly and save you from having to remove and disassemble your own lock. Another reason to avoid a do-it-yourself rekey job is that you could put yourself and your family at an increased security risk.
Is it necessary to rekey locks when I take over ownership of a new home?
Yes, we always think this is a good idea and it's not just because we want to sell more rekeying services. We sincerely care about our customers and our community and would hate to see anyone become an unwitting crime victim. When someone moves out of a house, you don't know if they still have a valid set of keys or whether they gave a copy of their keys to someone with less than desirable intentions. Although the possibility is small, it's not a chance worth taking when our company is available to rekey the locks of your new home 24 hours a day.
Rekeying the locks of a new home is an important safety feature for yourself and your family.
