24 / 7 Lilburn LocksmithPhony locksmith address does not exist

I can understand your concern about the address for the locksmith being incorrect. Many locksmiths, just like law enforcement, and other sensitive industries now have to have what is known as a Ghost Address.

Locksmiths and their professional equipment are highly valued by thieves. Most locksmiths have entry tools that are only manufactured by the original company of the locks, safes, security doors, key locks, and electronic security systems.

Next time you need a locksmith, find one with an actual store front. Check them out on Aggies list, [redacted] or Company Names sucks. Ask around.

Professional locksmiths often have store fronts. Do the employees wear uniforms? Are they employees and not just 1099’s?, is the company bonded and insured? How many years have they been in business? Do they carry the top brands of equipment? The two top companies are Medico and Schledge. Call either one of these companies and they will tell you their authorized installers.

    After checking about 15 of Locksmith 1 24 by 7 addresses...all are bogus addresses using addresses of vacant lots, elementary schools, parking lots, gas stations, Subway and Chick-fil-A shops. They will only send a "technician" using their .com address after customer is instructed to authrorize credit card use. In my case, this Brooklyn NY company charged $70 over initial estimate, didn't fix lock as I asked, and lied, not only to me, but to win credit card dispute. In dispute, it seemed to be my fault for not being very specific in writing what I wanted along with autorization. They changed the service order to open lock not fix it. In fact, it appears they broke the original lock. They never sent an invoice and refused to let me talk to a supervisor. My advice: stay away from this .com company doing business in NY under one of several names as Locksmith, Inc. Shop vocal and verify location.
