Does Your Business Need Rekeying Services?

Posted on July 28, 2022 by A-1

Security is important in all areas of our lives, but especially when it comes to our livelihoods. Providing for loved ones is the biggest priority for many of us, after all. For commercial business owners, protecting the company’s bottom line can be directly tied to security capabilities.

If you haven’t audited your business’ security in a while, here are some reasons why a commercial rekeying service might be in order.

Signs You Need Commercial Rekeying

If you haven’t rekeyed your business in a while, that’s a good sign it’s time to do so! Regular rekeying services should be part of your business operations for security reasons alone. But let’s get into some other specific signs and symptoms that a commercial rekeying is needed:

  • You’ve lost the key to one of your access points (door, safe, etc.).
  • You’re not sure where all copies of your keys are located (and who has them).
  • A former disgruntled employee might still have a key.
  • You’ve had one or more break-ins recently; or, you’re in an area with higher crime.
  • You don’t have peace of mind about your business security.

Benefits of Commercial Rekeying

With a commercial rekeying service, a professional locksmith will replace all of the keys and locks in your business (or the ones you want them to, anyway). It’s recommended to do this every six months to a year, but no more than every three years. Here are some of the benefits that come with these commercial rekeying services:

  • More advanced security due to better technology and production methods.
  • Convenience (especially if you upgrade to a smart, combination or video lock). 
  • Better control over who has access to different rooms.
  • More peace of mind about working locks with limited key access.

Finding the Best Commercial Rekeying Service

The only question is, how do you find the best company to handle the commercial rekeying? For starters, they need to offer the service—many locksmith companies will only specialize in residential or auto locksmith services. Next, they need to be reputable, with many customer reviews, a professional website and professional uniforms and vehicles. Anything that proves they were there before your business and will be there after. Finally, just talking to your prospects will give you a sense of their dedication to customer service and professionalism. Do your research and talk to several potential companies.
