When to Call an Emergency Car Locksmith

There are many unexpected events that could occur that would require an Emergency Car Locksmith. It's always best to have a locksmith's number saved in your cell phone for emergencies since looking for one is the last thing you'll want to do if you're faced with one of these situations.

Locked out of Your Running Car

Locking your keys in your car is bad enough, but when your car is running while you do it, it can be panic-inducing. The best thing to do is stay calm. If you don't have children or pets in the car in unsafe conditions and you are in a safe place, it's best not to call 911 and to call an emergency car locksmith instead. Of course, if you sense danger in any way, call the police. After you've assessed the situation and are ready to call a locksmith, if you are in an open area like a parking garage or large parking lot, you can always ask your locksmith to meet you in a public area like a coffee shop or restaurant, so you don't have to wait outside in the elements. Once your emergency car locksmith arrives, they'll have all the tools necessary to get you back inside your car without causing any damage to your vehicle. You'll be on your way in no time.

Key Stuck in Ignition

Another panic-inducing situation is getting your key stuck in the ignition. Lots of cars have safety features that lock the key in, but sometimes they can malfunction leaving you stuck and unable to start or turn off your vehicle. Your first instinct may be to pull as hard as you can or try to somehow shake it loose. DON'T. You could cause serious damage to your car that could cost quite a bit of money to repair. The best thing to do is to stay calm and call your emergency car locksmith. They will have the tools to get your key out safely without damaging your ignition or vehicle.

Missing Car Key

We've all lost our keys at least once. This can be incredibly frustrating, especially if you're running late for work or an appointment. You may think going to the car dealership may be the best place for a key replacement but, a dealership can be expensive with long wait times depending on what kind of key you need. An emergency car locksmith will be able to replace your key much quicker at a significantly lower price.
