Locksmiths in Denver, CO

There are no locksmith licensure requirements for individuals or companies to perform locksmith services in the entire state of Colorado. This is the cause of a great influx of unqualified locksmiths that exercise unethical business practices. Almost anybody can become a locksmith in the Denver metro area. Even the possession of all locksmith equipment does not require any certification which makes it even easier for unqualified and untrained individuals to advertise themselves as locksmiths.

Colorado State Locksmith Requirements

  • Locksmith License Requirement - No
  • Business License Requirement - Yes
  • Ongoing Education Requirement - No
  • Posession of Locksmith Equipment - Legal

There have been a number of large companies that were investigated and/or sued by the office of the Colorado Attorney General’s Consumer Protection Section for deceptive advertising practices and misleading over the phone pricing. Consumers in the Denver Metro are very smart and in most cases will carefully shop around to find the good and honest service providers. But when it comes to locksmiths, some situations might make it more difficult. When someone is in need of a locksmith, they are many times locked out of their car or home, other times they are stranded because of a lost car key. These stressful situations might make it difficult to shop around in a proper manner and in many instances anxiety will make the consumer call the first ad they see. And this is one way the scammer locksmith companies take advantage of the Denverite requiring urgent locksmith service.

When you call a locksmith in the Denver Metro make sure they are not advertising a fifteen minute response time. These claim is most of the time a tell tale sign of dishonesty since no locksmith business in Denver can guarantee to get anywhere in fifteen minutes. Driving three miles on I-25 during rush-hour can sometimes take longer than that.
