What To Do When Locked Out Of Your Car

Getting locked out of your car isn’t only reserved for dark rainy nights. Sometimes, it happens on a bright, sunny, hot South Texas day. Either way, don’t despair there’s hope. If you’ve ever been locked out of your car, you know it can be a traumatic experience, so here are 4 things to remember if it ever happens to you.

  • Take a breath
  • Make sure you and your family are safe
  • Evaluate your options
  • Call an expert you can trust

Take a Deep Breath

It’s OK, it happens to everyone at some point. The important thing is to remain calm and not do anything rash. Don’t break a window…unless you have a child or pet in the car. Priest Lock & Key provides 24-hour emergency lockout service, so we are just a call or click away.

Make Sure You’re Safe

This is perhaps the most important step. Make sure you and your family are somewhere safe. If the lockout takes place at night, be sure you are somewhere well-lit and where other people are around.

Evaluate Your Options

Consider if you have a friend or family member who can bring you a spare key. This is usually the quickest and least expensive solution, unfortunately, it’s not always an option.

Call A Nearby Locksmith Expert You Can Trust

When you’re locked out of your car is the worst time to look for a locksmith. If at all possible, look at locksmith reviews and find one that looks reputable, has good reviews on Yelp and Google, and give them a call. Ask if they offer 24-hour service. How much is the emergency call fee? Where’s their service area? If it all looks good, save their number on your phone. Hopefully, you’ll never need it, but at least you have it in an emergency situation.
