What it Takes to be the Best Locksmith in the Omaha Metropolitan Area

Written by Big Red Locksmiths on . Posted in Blog

big-red-locksmiths-residential-home-lockout-servicesEvery year businesses in Omaha line up to be rated as “the Best of” something. Whether it’s an online rating system through a search engine or social media, or a more organized effort where businesses are nominated and then rated by the individuals in the community, everyone would like to be (and often claims they are) “the Best.”

Capturing the attention of and receiving recognition from area consumers is important for any business, but what often gets lost in the calculation of points, online ratings and award lists are the actual qualities that really make a business “great.” For a professional locksmith service, awards are nice, but there’s more to being the best professional in town. Below we provided a few key things that truly make a difference in the quality of craftsmanship and ultimate satisfaction with locksmith services for your home, car, or business. 

Look for a history of service

As in many things, the longer a company has been providing a service, the more likely they are to do it very well. Businesses that survive for more than 20 years are likely performing services at a level significantly higher than the competition and, in the locksmith industry, the experience and craftsmanship that comes from long-term service simply cannot be duplicated. Big Red Locksmiths has been serving the Omaha metropolitan area since 1992 and has responded to just about every possible situation that can be encountered by an Omaha professional locksmith company.

Proper training and experience is a must

Just as you wouldn’t want a plumber to work on your car engine, you shouldn’t just trust anyone with your home and business security. Locksmithing is an art and skill that can only be acquired through experience and training. During your research, ask specific questions to determine if the lock professional can do the job right the first time.

Your future locksmith should have compassion

Getting locked out of your home or car can be quite stressful. More than likely you will be in a fluster leading to you needing someone on the other line that cares about your safety and helping with your immediate need. You should never do business with a professional locksmith that doesn’t treat you with respect and courtesy, no exceptions! A great way to find out the kind of service you can expect is to read client testimonials or talk with business contacts, neighbors or family members who have used a local locksmith.

Integrity is critical

Just like any business selling a service, some are upstanding and others are not. Long-term service and trained professionals feed into the quality of integrity, but it goes even further than that. How do you know if a locksmith service has integrity? Truthfulness and honesty are at their core – providing only the services you really need; charging a fair (not inflated) price; doing the right thing because it’s the right thing to do – these are characteristics not all businesses can claim as their own; finding one that can is really important. An A+ Better Business Bureau rating is a good place to start looking for locksmiths with integrity.

With all of this said, it’s important to reiterate that awards mean a lot to businesses and customers alike. Big Red Locksmiths has earned its share of awards over the years and we are proud of each and every one. We are most proud, however, of the long-term business relationships we’ve established, our expert and dedicated employees, the customer service we’ve always provided and our history of integrity in all that we do.
