How to Secure Your New Business

Opening a new business takes a lot of hard work. If you live in a city with a dense populace, preserving that hard work requires some precaution. You put some elbow grease into everything from making sure the storefront looks impeccable to choosing your inventory – you don’t want some vandal, or even some bored neighborhood kids, undoing your efforts and burdening you with needless negative expenses. So, if you’ve recently opened up a business in a town like Bethesda, here are a few reasons you should look into commercial locksmith services.

Lock and Security System Installation

You probably already have locks on your doors and windows, but keep in mind that small business storefronts are targets for crime. Burglars unfortunately will work as hard as they can to get into a store where they know they will find valuables. In other words – standard locks aren’t going to cut it in a commercial situation. A knowledgeable Bethesda locksmith can help you choose and install commercial locks and security systems, like cameras, to ensure your building is impermeable.

Emergency Connection

It happens to the best of us – we get locked out, our locks fail, or our keys break. It most definitely doesn’t hurt to have a locksmith you know you trust on-hand. If you form a good relationship with a local locksmith, you’ll know they’ll be timely, reliable, and provide good service in case of an emergency. There are plenty that are 24-hours, and peace of mind is priceless. Not to mention, locksmiths are always available to help you recover after a break-in, should one happen, and evaluate your options to prevent that issue from ever occurring again.

Property Evaluations

Maybe you’ve always thought your security system was up-to-par, but upon hearing about other crimes in the area, you’re second-guessing. It doesn’t hurt to have a locksmith come out and evaluate your property to determine its level of security. Perhaps he will think that it is amply secured, or maybe he will have some suggestions that will provide you with better peace of mind. Whether you need a better system for security cameras or want to install digital locks for smoother employee entry and exit, locksmiths can help and ensure that the equipment, no matter how high-tech, is installed properly.

When you own a business or any sort of investment, a good security system is priceless. It could protect you from break-ins and simply ensure that opening and closing down the building every day goes smoothly. Whether you’re having your property evaluated or simply putting the phone number in your speed dial, shopping around for a trustworthy technician is worth the effort.

“I called Keyed In and they came over immediately to assess the damage. Unfortunately, my front door handle is a "specialty" handle and had to be ordered. Keyed In worked with me to find the cheapest handle and worked around my schedule to come back to my house (9pm) to do the repairs once the new handle came in. They were professional, friendly and very knowledgeable. I would definitely use them again and recommend them to anyone in need of a locksmith.” — Kory Dubayau

“Great experience, great company. I would highly recommend. I needed a lock replaced on the door leading out to my deck. The door is very heavy and the lock very old and it was stuck. Keyed In came out and said they could replace it. The guy gave me three options - a low price option, a middle price options, and a high price option. He then noticed that the handle on my screen door was broken. I thought I would have to replace the entire door but he said he could fix it for me. So not only did he do a great job with the door but he also saved me from having to buy and entire new screen door. It was a great experience.” — Dorothy Shildes
