Safe Way Lock & Key has proudly provided locksmith services to both residents and business owners in the Baltimore area for years. In that time, we’ve come across countless situations and circumstances — it’s pretty crazy, to tell you the truth. Our job may not be the most thrilling, but the various reasons that we are needed is something that we’ve always thought to be fascinating. Most people think that the only thing that a locksmith can do is unlock a door, but there are various other services that we can assist with. 

In today’s blog post, our team of professional locksmiths will be going over a few of the most common reasons that people contact our office. You may be surprised to see a few of the ones that make the list. 

Locked Out

Let’s start with the most obvious reason that people contact us — they’re locked out! There’s no doubt about it, we do receive a majority of our phone calls because someone is locked out of their house or car with no way of getting back in. These types of situations are extremely common, and we’re always more than happy to help! 

While we’re talking about this particular scenario, we absolutely must say that calling a locksmith (though it may be more expensive upfront) is worth every dollar spent! So many people that try to get back into their locked car or home without the proper equipment end up doing much more damage. Avoid that being the outcome of your scenario by calling a professional — you’ll be glad that you did.

Getting Into Safes

While it’s not the most commonly thought of locked area, safes are another thing that locksmiths can help with. For those who have had safes for years and have lost the key, a locksmith is the only way that you can get back into the safe without damaging it. This is a pretty awesome service for people to take advantage of given that most safes are holding sentimental or valuable items that one would not want locked up or thrown out.

Switching Out Locks

Locks were created as a way of protecting possessions, and that’s still the case today. Whether it’s the lock on the front door of your home or it’s the lock on your office door at the commercial building you own, our team can help maintain security. This is a must anytime that keys are lost, but is a suggestion whenever someone with keys has left the company or moved out of the house. When you’re looking to prioritize your security, our team of professional locksmiths can help by switching out the locks! We are always happy to do this given how much it can enhance the security of a space. Whether you need one lock changed or an entire building of locks, our team has you covered.

Make New Keys

Aside from being able to change the locks on your house or commercial building, a professional locksmith can also create new keys for you. So, let’s say you don’t want to change the lock on your door and you only have one key to get into that particular room. Our team can make copies of that one key so that you have, at the very least, a spare. We can also help do this for master keys within your commercial building or car keys. If, however, you’re looking for a new car key, it’s good to talk with someone from our team. Cars have advanced so much these days that it can be much more difficult to recreate a car key, so make sure we can do it first. 

Security Systems

The team at Safe Way Lock & Key are able to assist with high-quality surveillance systems for both your home and your commercial property. If you’re ever looking to increase the level of security at the place that you spend your time, a security system is a great way to do just that. Given that every building is different, our staff takes the time to get to know you, your needs, and the building that your security system will be going into.
