The Genuine Bristol Locksmiths
These days more and more of us use the internet when searching for tradesmen such as locksmiths, with search engines such as google often being the ‘tool’ of choice. There is of course nothing wrong with this, and searching on-line for a locksmith in Bristol, or anywhere else, is certainly a lot easier than the alternative of heaving through a copy of the Yellow Pages. However it is worth bearing in mind that the internet is a strange thing, and unfortunately not all is what it may at first seem.
An important example of this is the fact that a lot of the locksmiths that appear, on search engine results, to be local Bristol based businesses and tradesmen are in reality anything but. A lot of these locksmiths businesses may be based very far from Bristol on the other side of the country, and sometimes even the other side of the world.
You may be thinking that as long you call a locksmiths with a local Bristol telephone number then they must be a genuine company actually based in Bristol? Well this certainly used to be the case, but the advent of what are known as ‘virtual inbound numbers’ means that this is no longer the case. A virtual inbound number is exactly what the name suggests; the dial code of the number you see and dial suggests that you are calling a particular place – for example Bristol – but the call is actually forwarded and picked up at another number, and that other number can be anywhere in the country or any where in the world. The number you have dialled does not relate to any actual physical phone line or even an actual physical mobile phone and number – hence the term ‘virtual’.
Now we are not saying that these types of numbers are all bad, they do enable quick changes to call routing which can enable a business, be it a locksmiths or any other, to function more efficiently, however we do think it’s wrong when businesses use these numbers to hide their true location. So if you do not want to get caught out by these shady operators, our advice would be firstly to carefully check their website to see if they publish their address, and if it corresponds to the city in which they purport to be based – for example at Bristol & Bath Locksmiths our Fishponds Bristol office address is on the footer of every page, and this address can also be verified by other independent sources. Our second piece of advice would be to say that when you do call do not be afraid to ask the person you speak to where they are based and even test them on their local knowledge – at Bristol & Bath locksmiths we are all genuine Bristolians based in Bristol and we are happy to be quizzed on our local knowledge! If in doubt it’s best to give that particular business a wide berth.
We hope you have found this advice useful. If we can be of further assistance please don’t hesitate to give us a call (in Bristol!) now… 0117 3361122
