Hours of Operation for Locksmith

Follower ✭ ✭ ☆

I have a locksmith asking about hours of operation guidelines.  A staff member is in the office from 7am to 7pm.  However, the phone calls forward to a cell of the locksmith on call from 7pm to 7am.  

 

Is is Ok in this instance to list the business hours as all day or does the locksmith have to have someone in the office for the business to show as open after 7pm?  Thanks in advance for your assistance.

If he has a storefront where customers can show up unannounced and the address is displayed in the Local business listing on Maps, then he needs to list only the hours when somebody is at the office.
If he rather had a business listing setup as a service area business with hidden address, then he can list the 24 hours business hours.

But not helpful really is it, I also have the same problem with a Locksmith business. Has there been any other changes to this problem?
