How To Choose The Right Locksmith

Hello, My name is Bobby, a representative of Locksmith Bend, and I am going to take some time to help you make informative decisions when in need of a locksmith. Whether you call our company or decide to go with another local service, I would like to offer some insight on how to go about finding what is best for you. Many of our clients initially hear about is via word of mouth, but we do advertise through services such as the Yellow Pages, Google, & Yelp! We have even had customers call us after hearing about seeing our Facebook ads!

However, now that everyone has a smart phone, it is becoming the norm for people to simply turn to search engines, looking for local help for lockouts, new keys, and lock rekey.

It might seem like there are hundreds of local locksmiths in Bend to choose from, especially if you are using search engines such as Google or Bing to find service. However, finding a true, honest technician from a reputable company is like sifting through a haystack to locate the proverbially needle.

Many locksmith companies that you see on Google are not licensed!

We recommend doing a thorough investigation of any locksmith company that you come across. Some of the things to check before selecting a locksmith service are:

  1. Is the company licensed? First, I would like to define what I mean by this, since licensing depends on not only the city but the state as well. In Oregon, all locksmith companies are required to register with both the Secretary of State and the Construction Contractor’s Board (CCB for short). Bend also requires locksmiths to register with the City of Bend, located on 710 Wall St in Bend, Oregon. Therefore, a licensed locksmith in Bend, OR will need all three of these registrations in order to conduct proper business here.
  2. Is the company bonded & insured? To clarify, when a locksmith says he is licensed, bonded, and insured, it means they are able to complete any locksmith work that you require. Bonded means that unfinished or badly implemented work will be covered by a surety company, while insured means that accidental damage will be covered by the insurance company. This protects the consumers.

Locksmith Bend is local, licensed, bonded, and insured. We guarantee that our technicians are capable of automotive, residential, and commercial services. Please call us today at (541) 316-5625 for help or find out more about our licenses on our Locksmith Bend Verification page. We wish the best of luck with the hunt for an ideal locksmith!
