• INSURED An individual or company has purchased liability insurance to protect both the individual/company and their clients against any accidental damage. This is similar to the car insurance that we must have in order to operate a vehicle in the United States.

• BONDED An individual or company is bonded when they pay a nominal fee to a bonding company and, after passing a background check, are guaranteed that should an accident occur, the bonding company will post a certain amount of money in order to rectify the situation and fix the problem. Bonding is simiilar to insurance, but it is an added measure of protection for the client. Many top notch industry organizations offer bonding for their members in their respective industries; for example ALOA (Associated Locksmiths of America) offers bonding to their members (locksmiths).

• LICENSED An individual or company has filed the necessary paperwork with a government agencies and received a license to operate as an official business.

Why should I make sure that I hire a licensed, professional locksmith?

There are many reasons why it is important to hire a licensed, professional locksmith.

Be aware of price frauds and imposters locksmiths. Unfortunately, there are many individuals out there who are working as locksmiths but are not licensed. Most of the time these unlicensed, inexperienced, unprofessional “locksmiths” are simply trying to earn as much money as possible and therefore will give deleterious and misguided advice. Often these people do not have any real experience or training in the security industry and are motivated by greed. Only a licensed locksmith with years of experience in this trade can give you qualified advice and recommendations regarding security solutions (both physical and electronic) for your home or business.

As early 2010, the locksmith industry in Florida is unregulated. There were no requirements or licenses needed to work as a locksmith in this state.

Florida locksmiths will be regulated soon. Florida's legislators responded by drafting proposed bills, one in the House and one in the Senate, to regulate the industry.
