It’s no secret that Dubai is one of the safest places in the world. However, it’s still a wise move (pun intended!) to have your locks changed when you move into a new place. As soon as you rent a villa or an apartment, hiring a locksmith should be pretty high on your list of things.
With that out of the way, let’s now take a look at how to choose a trustworthy locksmith in Dubai.
It’s important to understand that locksmiths in Dubai or the UAE do not need to complete any specific qualifications or subscribe to an association that monitors their reliability, unlike in some other countries. Hence it is best to start your search by asking for referrals or looking online and reading up on past reviews before you choose a service provider.
As is the case in Dubai, you will find several locksmith shops near your home depending on which community you reside in. They might be a good option for duplicate keys. But for something as intricate as a complete lock change, it is best to enlist the services of bonafide pros who have expert technicians and offer warranties on their service.
And finally, you might want to look for vendors who are prompt with their service. Some of the options listed later in the article will arrive at your doorstep in no time to perform a variety of specialized home tasks including safe opening, cabinet and wardrobe locks, and even service modern home security systems.
Curious as to how much a locksmith service will set you back in Dubai? Wonder no more as we’ve got the details on the same.
If you are confident in the safety of your current lock system, you can either opt for rekeying or a duplicate set of keys. This should set you back no more than AED 30-60.
At the end of the day, whether you opt for an hourly service or an all-in-one service, you will end up paying more or less the same. It completely depends on you what you prefer!
