Locksmith Vancouver WA: Locksmith Services and Common Questions
Updated: Mar 28, 2020
Locksmith Vancouver WA: What Are Your Service Areas?
Service areas are not dictated by the jobs our technicians are able to do. We offer the same lockout, rekey and new car key services all across Oregon and Southern Washington. So, whether you’re in Beaverton, Oregon or Battleground, Washington our professional mobile locksmiths offer a full range of automotive, residential and commercial locksmith services.
Locksmith Vancouver WA: Do You Charge Sales Tax?
As a company operating in Washington, we are legally required to charge sales tax on all services provided in the state. Tax is added to the entire amount charged for service, including labor and parts, if applicable.
Washington is a destination-based sales tax state, which means that tax is determined by the location of the customer when the transaction is completed. Regardless of the payment method, our locksmiths in Vancouver WA will include an 8.4% sales tax to the total price of the service.
Locksmith Vancouver WA: Are You Licensed in WA?
Individual locksmiths are not required to be licensed in Washington state but if they are providing locksmith services to the public they are required to hold a valid business license.
24 Hour Lock and Key is licensed with the Washington Secretary of State and Washington Labor and Industries. You can find our company license information on their websites by searching ”24 Hour Lock and Key”.
While individual locksmiths in Vancouver do not need to be licensed, it is a legal requirement in Oregon. If you would like to verify a Portland locksmith's certification, you can easily check online with the Oregon Construction Contractors Board (CCB) by searching the technician’s name or license number.
Locksmith Vancouver WA: Is it Cheaper if I Come to You?
We do not have a physical storefront location that you can visit. But, one of the things our customers love most about 24 Hour Lock and Key is that our locksmiths in Vancouver WA are entirely mobile. That means they can meet you wherever you are, even when you’re locked out of your car after a hike or you’ve accidentally dropped your keys in the river while fishing.
If you’re in need of a mobile job, don’t want to pay Washington sales tax and are able to travel to Oregon, our mobile locksmith technicians can arrange a place to meet you and will take care of your lock needs. The price of service will be the same as if you were in Washington but you will not be charged sales tax.
