Locked yourself out of your own business? We can help!


Business lockouts are not rare. If you own a business property, getting yourself locked out of your own establishment should be an eventuality that you have to prepare for. Fortunately, you can contact a 24/7 emergency locksmith like us to help you even during non-business hours.

It is not advisable to break into your own property, because you could end up unnecessarily damaging things that are not part of the lock itself, or you could make things worse and make the lock even harder to open. Other methods like breaking windows is not only costly, but it can also be dangerous as broken glass can harm you and other people.

Hiring expert locksmiths are generally the better course of action because they know where exactly to drill or how to defeat locks with the least amount of damage possible. In some rare cases, they could even unlock your business without damaging the lock itself.

Locksmiths have a variety of methods available to deal with a business lockout. Whether it’s lockpicking, drilling, or using unlocking methods designed by the lock manufacturer. These methods will vary in their success rate and their speed, so Locksmith Palm Springs will choose the one that suits your case the best.

Our expert mobile locksmiths will arrive within an hour or less if you are in the Palm Springs area. Since they are mobile locksmiths, they have everything they need already and don’t usually require lengthy set up time. The actual act of unlocking, on the other hand, will vary depending on the method you require but they will be anywhere between 30 to 60 minutes. Our locksmith can give you an estimate of how long it will take when they see the lock.

While our locksmiths are skilled enough to solve business lockouts with minimal damage, it is still more prudent to replace the locks. Even if they are still usable, their integrity may be compromised and may no longer be able to provide the same level of security.

Troubleshooting Business Lockouts

If you’re locked out of your office, you may feel panicked and fearful that your company’s work materials won’t be accessible. Don’t be too stressed because it can cloud your emotions. Consider alternatives to traditional methods of entry.

Do you have a secret key hidden somewhere? Do you know if someone else has a spare key? It’s hard to remember these things when you‘re in the heat of battle. You need to keep your mind focused and think if there are any other keys for the door and where they might be located.

Next, ask yourself if any of these keys has been lost or stolen. It’s important. If you lose your key, it may be because someone else has copied it. This means that your lock isn’t any safer than before. It’s important to know where every single key to your office is located and whether they’re locked up.

What about other ways to get people to visit your site? There may be another way to get into the room. Or even a window screen. You can also check whether someone else has the keys for the backdoor. Make sure that the status of other entry points for your business is good.

If your office or company has another entry point, then you need to make sure that it is secure. If intruders get into your office, they might use it to access your computer. Always ensure that doors or windows which could be used as entry points are locked and secured when the office is closed for the day.

If there are no other ways into your office besides the one that is currently blocked off, your best option is calling Locksmith Palm Springs for help. We can help you gain access to your office quickly, and with as little harm as possible to the locks themselves.
