Locksmith services are a necessity; something every property owner must deal with directly or delegate. Over time locks degrade, tenants move out, owners change and keys are lost. For those who can’t stand working in a cubicle, running a locksmith business can be an enjoyable and lucrative way to make a living. The benefits of being a locksmith business owner include being able to set your own hours and help locked out clients on a regular basis. As long as the job standard is high, the work tends to continue. The business of locksmithing is built through marketing, reputation, quality of work and referrals. Whether one decides to become a solo practitioner, or a centralized locksmith service provider employing multiple locksmiths, the industry is a field of work that will always be in demand.

Operating a locksmith business involves attention to detail, time management, and the ability to successfully market. Operations require plug spinners, plug followers, key decoders, lock and safe scopes, pinning blocks, turning tools, locksmith tweezers and proper vehicles to travel to each job site. Some locksmith services specialize in homes only while others deal with commercial properties. If staffing is necessary, a locksmith business must carefully vet employees for fastidiousness, trustworthiness, and check referrals. Locksmith services typically run using on premise software or software as a service (SaaS) like FieldPulse. These platforms manage employees and independent contractors, handle scheduling, communicate with clients and run accounting, billing, invoicing and locksmith payment.
