1-800-Unlocks Relaunches and Reloads Against Scammers
RICHMOND, Virginia – 1-800 Unlocks has announced today the relaunch of their website in efforts to better serve both consumers and locksmiths.
The site serves as a comprehensive directory of thousands of local and legitimate full-service locksmiths. These professionals are vetted to ensure high quality work and provide safe, automotive, commercial, residential, and access control services. Retooled functionality will help customers book services or call a local professional, all while avoiding the possibility of contacting a scammer.
1-800-Unlocks Owner, Samuel Wilson expects the relaunch of the website can better help individuals avoid being scammed. “Scammers see the average person as a target, someone they can easily take money from,” says Wilson.
“They are bait and switch masters, quoting you one price before the work then charging you a different price upon completion”.
Aside from providing a locksmith directory for consumers to find a professional locksmith, 1-800-Unlocks also equips the locksmiths themselves with a powerful marketing platform that utilizes high end analytics paired with comprehensive marketing, sales, and social media tools.
Many locksmiths do not have the marketing ability or background to compete with scammers. Most, according to Wilson, are primarily focused on the day to day operations of running their own business and performing their functions as a skilled locksmith.
This allows Wilson to create a network that leverages his site as a tool for locksmiths to not only aid in combating scammers, but also increase the call volume to these local shops.
“These locksmiths have ties to their communities where they live and work. We help them avoid getting hit where it matters most…their wallets,” says Wilson.
1-800-Unlocks provides locksmith services 24/7 via their website or phone. For more information on protecting your family, securing your business, or general tips, visit their website. They can also be followed on Twitter and liked on FaceBook.
