This can ultimately cause a problem. Unfortunately, not everyone is honest. After the work is done, you may remember about the keys. After the work is done, you might notice some valuables missing or things out of place. 24Hr Lockouts has seen this happen. Because of the excitement, your forgot to have the house rekeyed, and you were burglarized.
This sad scenario can be prevented with our rekeying service after the work has been finished and before you move in.

Don’t worry about being too careful!
Burglars Canvass New Neighborhoods
In addition, people will know when you are moving in, and it’s not just the neighbors. Crooks will canvass new neighborhoods looking for opportunities. They slip in unnoticed and simply walk away with your treasured valuables. You may even think it got lost in the move. If you have not personally invited someone into your new home, don’t let them in. That’s not being impolite. It’s being safe.
With someone who is unknown, ask for I.D. and know exactly who you’re are dealing with. You don’t have to settle for “John told me to come by and check the fittings.” It happens, and crooks have the cool courage to pull it off. Always ask questions and require I.D.
