Locksmith vs Handyman: What you need to know!

Have you asked your Locksmith for their qualifications? The Security Industry is only semi-regulated, meaning in some Australian States & Territories you DO NOT need to be licenced or qualified to be a locksmith. Yes. You read that right…In Victoria, you do not have to be licensed to be a locksmith!!

What does that mean for you and your family? You could be inadvertently hiring someone to secure your home who has no licence to do so. They may not even have the qualifications or education to meet compliance requirements.  Your family [the ones you want to protect the most] may be at risk.

This is not to scare you. This is simply to remind you that like the electrical work you had done or the builder who renovated your home; working with qualified trades is critical to your safety. Cutting corners is not an option!
