Why do I need a 24/7 locksmith?
If you have an emergency that requires a locksmith, outside of normal business hours, you will need a 24/7 locksmith. If you do not have an emergency, you may still require the services of a 24/7 locksmith. Non-emergency calls can be scheduled ahead of time. When the hours you keep make it more convenient for a night time appointment, a 24/7 locksmith is the best choice.
Does a 24/7 locksmith cost more?
The honest answer is that certain times of day are more likely to cost more. Very early in the morning and very late at night are the times that locksmiths will charge the most. For the locksmith, this is one of the incentives to run a 24/7 locksmith service. Anything in that grey area where you would need to think about whether is it late or early are the premium hours. Ask us for our rates when you call before the work is started, and do not agree unless you are satisfied with our charges.
HIs every locksmith open 24/7 a day?
No. Being an emergency locksmith has a lot of perks, but it is not sustainable for everyone. If the locksmith has a family or young children, they might not be able to go out at all hours of the night. Some areas cannot support a 24 hour locksmith. There might not be enough people in the town. A quiet city might not have enough activity after certain hours. The locksmith must also be able to serve a large enough area. Any limits on transportation, or the need to drive extremely long distances, will severely limit the profit for a locksmith that wants to be open 24 hours a day. At A1 Locksmith Services we have a genuine 24/7 emergency locksmith on standby to help you in your hour of need 365 days a year.
Do 24/7 locksmiths turn down work?
Usually, no. Being a 24/7 locksmith means that you are committed to helping the public in times of emergency. The business model of the company, or individual, might also make it hard to turn down any work. Some exceptions include when the locksmith suspects that the job is a prank or an attempted break in or re entry of a property by an evicted tenant. Similarly, if the locksmith suspects that the job may be a setup, they may turn it down. When the locksmith is currently at another job, or is too busy, they may also be forced to turn down work. If you are using a company like A1 Locksmith Services, all of this drama would happen behind the scenes, so the only news you get is that your locksmith is on their way.
What type of work does a 24/7 hour locksmith do?
A twenty-four-hour locksmith normally can do all the same duties of a normal locksmith. The difference is only in the hours they keep and work one main problem for a locksmith is noise laws that have to be observed or the materials required are not held on the vehicle. Because of those hours, some tasks may not be possible although at A1 Locksmith Services we have invested in a fully stocked vehicle. Daytime hours are standard fare because that is when most locksmiths and suplliers are open. The night time and early morning hours are what a 24/7locksmith capitalizes on.
Mainly these are lockouts. Lockouts are when someone has forgotten or lost keys for a home, office, bar or shop and requires immediate access to their property. This may also include extracting a broken key etc. Other night time emergencies might come from police requesting help to enter a building. A home that has been burglarized may also need new locks fitting immediately. Consultations and security assessments rarely happen in the night time hours.
