In 1995, when I first became interested in the locksmith profession, I never imagined I would be in Canton, GA training to become one two years later. After two years, the locksmith I was training with closed his business, leaving me with a choice. With only two locksmiths in the Canton area, I started Northstart Locksmiths, ensuring customers would continue to have choices when it came to hiring a locksmith.
When I first began, there were few options for advertising a new business. The Yellow Pages had already been released, and the internet barely existed. I knew that before I could install the first deadbold, door knob or unlock a car, I was going to have to get out there and introduce Northstar Locksmiths to as many people as possible. I started promoting my services to residential and automotive customers but quickly found myself doing commercial work in the Canton area as well.
Northstar Locksmiths still provides a wide range of services in the Canton area. Listed below are the five most common services requested:
- Homes, businesses and vehicles unlocked
- Safes combinations reset
- Drilling and preparing doors for new deadbolts
- Rekeying locks
- Lock repair and installation
