Recent crime statistics show that theft has grown into the third largest category of crime nationwide, costing all of us nearly $3 billion per year. Many thefts start simply, when a homeowner loses a purse or even just a set of keys. Theft leads to not just a loss of assets, but also of your sense of security.
Stolen Keys Can Overturn Your Life
Why can stolen keys or a lost handbag turn your life upside down? They can ﬁnd your house from your licence, open your doors, take what they want, sometimes while you still wait for a locksmith to get you back into your car. While you wait, criminals can take what they want from your home at leisure. If they like what they see, they may return again and again.
Losing items such as keys and licences, far from being merely inconvenient, can cost you money and expose your family to loss of privacy and even personal danger.
How to Get Back Your Peace of Mind
Let us help to make you and your family safer if this happens. Here at Altitude Locksmiths, we can cover every possible angle. It doesn’t matter if your vehicle is old or new, we can get your vehicle locking system reprogrammed. Your old keys in criminal hands instantly become useless, making your car more safe from theft.
We also rekey all locks for your home and other property doors. This makes your old keys useless, so even with your address and keys in hand, a criminal can’t walk right into your home as if he or she owned it. Securing the doors to your home will help to turn criminals away from what they may think is an easy grab of your valuables.
Finally, we reprogram your garage door remotes and opening system. Many don’t consider how vulnerable a garage can render a home. Once the burglar gets inside your garage and sifts through valuables there, he or she can often stroll right into your home. Too many people carelessly leave their house door into their garage unlocked. Often the door leading from the garage into the house, through poor construction or insuﬃcient locking, presents very little challenge to a determined thief.
You can take preventative measures to help reduce your inconvenience in the event of losing your keys. Some experts suggest placing a small tab on your keychain with your phone number and oﬀer of a reward for safe return. Also make sure that you have multiple spare sets in easy to reach locations so that you can get on your way quickly after losing a primary set.
Don’t let your life get turned upside down by stolen keys and personal information. Call us for a fast and eﬃcient locksmith service to protect your home, vehicles, and, most of all, your peace of mind.
