The only thing that you might dread after parking your car is locking the car with keys inside it. What the use of locking your keys inside a car? How would you move the car again? Here are a few ways to deal with such mistakes:
Call for emergency – If you have locked your car in a place that you’re unsure of, it’s better to dial the emergency number at once. Safety must be your first concern and you can’t compromise your safety for protecting your car. Sometimes the police can help unlock your car or bring in a towing service to pull it away. If you have left your pets or children inside the car, it’s better to contact the emergency number immediately.
Try to get a temporary key – The nearest car dealer or vehicle service station might have any extra keys that might unlock your car. Try bringing one of their servicemen to unlock your car or you can borrow a few keys from them and try unlocking the door for yourself. You’ll probably be asked to give a few details, like vehicle identification number, license to drive, insurance, and other vehicle or ownership details.
Hire a roadside assistance – There are many professional roadside assistance services operating across your city. You can call them for assistance and they might help you unlock your car. If you haven’t subscribed for such services, you also get an option to hire them for a day or for a service. You can visit the nearest phone booth and check for the best roadside assistance in that area. You can also have a look at Automotive Service news to get to know about them. Dial them and request for their service.
Keep an extra key in your pocket – If you’re used to misplacing or locking in your car keys quite often, you can try carrying an extra car key with you. You can either buy a magnetic box that can hold a car key and fix it under your car, or simply carry a spare key with you all the time. If you have locked in somewhere near to your destination, you can contact your friends or family to bring in the spare keys for you.
Nowadays, many new car models come with keyless option, where you can remotely unlock or lock the vehicle or has a door mounted keypad for unlocking the door. It’s better to upgrade to such high end models.
