Locksmiths and Dealerships
You might be surprised to learn that locksmiths are more than just the guys that let a person in to their house, office, safe or car.
Locksmith have skills that are required by many businesses, such as high security access control, CCTV, intercom systems and more, as well as a myriad of residential applications, and one of the biggest forms of business that requires the use of a locksmiths services are the auto and motorcycle dealerships around the Phoenix area and beyond.
Phoenix locksmiths are called upon by the dealerships to perform many functions that are vital to the dealerships interests.
Of course it is good to have locksmith services when taking trades and a need arises to change keys or locks but the main part of a locksmith's service when employed by vehicle and motorcycle dealerships are to act as recovery agents.
This does not necessarily mean that the locksmith is what is known as a "repo man" but they do provide the means with which to enter a car and start it when keys are not available and the same techniques are used to motorcycles.
An example of the types of tools a locksmith will use in this situation is a jiggler key set, which are also known as "tryout" keys. The way to use these keys are simple and they are not sophisticated or expensive, however, for the sake of not tempting others to try and pick any locks we will not go in to any detail on how to use them.
Phoenix locksmiths also have a lot of experience with rekeying and placing new locks on cars due to the theft rate for automobiles in the Valley. With the proximity to Mexico there are many cars and trucks, motorcycles and other vehicles that are reported stolen and when they are returned, hopefully found in good shape, the locksmith is called upon by the dealer or owner to fix or replace any parts that are necessary.
Many people end up being a little taken aback when they learn what the actual and various jobs of a locksmith are and what they entail and they also find it quite interesting.
Many skilled laborers have important duties which they perform unbeknownst to the public and most would actually find these careers quite interesting if they knew a little more about it.
When a locksmith is employed by a car, truck or motorcycle dealership it shows the trust that they put in a person or company in order to fix or bring back something that is worth thousands of dollars and that is not all as they not only replace locks on used vehicles, they also are charged with creating master key systems for the entire dealership and much, much more!
So when you think of a Phoenix locksmith or anywhere else, remember that they have more to do than just drive around opening doors, which they are happy to do, they also are a part of every lock and key requirement out there.
