I was not sure where to turn when I found myself locked out of my house early in the morning hours. My wife was not due home for another two days from an overseas trip to visit her sister who had just had a baby, and no one else had a key to our house. I had left mine at the office, and I would not be able to get back in there until the weekend was over. I decided to look at locksmiths in Brisbane rather than spend money on a hotel for two days because it would be cheaper in the long run.
I had my mobile phone with me, so I was able to look up locksmiths in the area. I had never needed one before, so I had to go on blind faith that I would be able to get one to come out in the early morning hours. I figured that if I could not find one to come out, or if it would cost more money than I expected, then I could fall back on the hotel idea. It only took me a couple of minutes to find the locksmith that came out.
They have people on call 24 hours a day, seven days a week, regardless if it is a holiday or weekend. The price quoted was very reasonable considering that it was nearly the middle of the night on a weekend at that point. The locksmith that came out was able to help me get in my house within just a few minutes, and I was beyond grateful for the speediness of his work. I was prepared to stay elsewhere, but there is just nowhere like home to rest your head. Also, this gave my wife and our friends plenty of fun at my expense too!
