First Lock & Security Technologies is proud to be the only locksmith in Los Altos, CA that has a storefront! Unfortunately, like other most cities across the United States, many people claiming to be locksmiths work out of a single van. In this blog, we will outline what this can mean for you and why it’s better to hire a reputable locksmith that has a brick and mortar location.
A Storefront Locksmith Location Means You Know Where to Find Us
This is a huge benefit! At First Lock & Security Technologies, our storefront shop gives our valued customers the opportunity to ask questions of our locksmith staff. We in turn give solid advice, suggestions and alternatives, which leads to the overall positive experience our customers receive when they visit our location. Having many years of combined locksmith experience at our storefront shop allows collaboration that usually leads to creative problem solving for lock and key problems. If you have any questions about the locksmith work performed on your property, you know how to find us … and we guarantee our work!
We’ve Been Meeting the Locksmith Needs of Locals for Over 40 Years!
Typically, locksmiths with a storefront have been in the industry much longer than a locksmith working out of a single van, and we are no exception. First Lock & Security Technologies has been serving locals for decades and our locksmith staff have extensive experience. We bring a lot of local credibility to the table because of our longevity in the community and commitment to excellent service.
Key Cutting & Copying Machines on Premises
A locksmith with a brick and mortar location has stationary equipment such as a wide array of key cutting and duplication machines for example. An actual locksmith performing the operation, offers a more precise key cut as opposed to kiosks and hardware stores.
Large Locksmith Key Inventory
A storefront locksmith location can store a much larger inventory of locks as well as keys with thousands of different key blanks that can duplicate a key for virtually any lock. In contrast, a van simply does not have the space or payload capacity to carry all these locks and key blanks and the machines that utilize them. First Lock & Security Technologies also has specialized tools, computers and software in our storefront that aids with key blank identification and code cutting. Also, as touched on earlier in this blog, our storefront shop allows us to show many examples of lock and security products and we can answer your questions before you buy!
No Locksmith Dispatch Service
When you call our locksmith shop to schedule service at your home or business, you don’t have to go through a dispatcher or appointment setter, you get to talk to one of our locksmith staff or our owner, Gary Lekan who began his locksmith career in 1976! You do not need to schedule an appointment to receive services in our shop, just come in and see us!
