Most people don’t think about how they’ll deal with being locked out of their home or forgetting their keys in their car until it happens. Studies have found that annually, about two million people lock themselves out of their homes and about four million accidentally lock their keys in their care.

When this happens to you, you may be quick to try and find anyone that can help but it’s always best to hire a professional locksmith.

Here are some advantages of hiring a professional locksmith:

  1. They’re Qualified & Experienced
  2. Timeliness
  3. Upfront About Cost
  4. Avoid Damages

They’re Qualified & Experienced

Hiring a professional locksmith ensures that you’re getting the help you need from someone with the proper qualifications and experience.  Not only will a professional locksmith have the proper training to get the job done, but they’ll also have all the tools necessary to help you.

In Tennessee for example, locksmiths are required to be licensed which is administered by the Tennessee Department of Commerce & Insurance. To obtain a license, you’re required to have at least 30 hours of basic locksmith training with two years of experience and pass a licensing exam.


No one wants to wait hours to be let into their home or car. Not to mention expecting someone to be on time and having to wait longer than you initially thought. With a professional locksmith, you can trust them to be on time. Typically, you’ll be given a window of time for their visit if you’re not able to schedule an appointment right away.

Upfront About Cost

If you decide to get help from someone who isn’t a professional, they may charge you extra for unnecessary expenses. Instead, a professional locksmith will be able to give you a quote upfront so you know exactly what to expect before you hire them. This also allows you to compare prices and find the company with services that best fit your needs.

Avoid Damage

If you’re in a bind, your first instinct may be to break your car door window to get your key out or break into your own home to get in. But not only is repairing any damages costly, it may not even work. According to Angi, the cost of repairing a single window in your home costs about $200. For your car, fixing a broken or cracked window ranges from $200 to $400. Instead, a professional locksmith can take the necessary measures to help you get your key back without damage or the additional costs repairs would bring.
