Replacing a lock can be worrying, and looking for a reputable locksmith might seem very boring and time-consuming.  Why can’t I just choose the first one that pops up on Google?  Sadly, these are often paid advertisements and can be misleading.  Once you have found a locksmith, make sure to look for their reputation – something which is also just a Google search away – and decide then.  If you hire a less than reputable locksmith, the damages they do fall on you.  If you however choose a reputable locksmith, both certified and insured, you will be covered in all aspects, including by your insurance company.
