If you DO need a locksmith in now, call Raleigh Locksmith Group at (919)372-3667.
Let’s review the steps you should take if you encounter this problem. Then, we’ll explain you how our experts can help you if you accidentally lock your keys inside your car.
What you should do if you lock your keys in your vehicle:
- Remain calm and make sure that you are in a safe location.
If you feel that you are in an unsafe location, it might be a good idea to enter a nearby store or restaurant. Emergencies can be distracting. Therefore, you should be aware of your surroundings.
- Check to make sure that you do not have a spare auto key with you.
Sometimes, people forget about spare keys that they have placed in pockets or purses.
- If you are not able to locate a spare key immediately and there is a small child in your vehicle, call the local emergency department (911) immediately.
First responders will come right away and save the child in your vehicle. In the meantime, block the interior of the vehicle from sunlight as much as you can. If you have access a coat or a towel, these items can be used to cover the windows. Remember not panic. Track the number of minutes the child is in the car. That information may be helpful to EMTs.
Although you might be tempted to try to break the window to the vehicle immediately, keep in mind that doing so could injure you or the child. Trust the experts. The 911 operator can give you advice.
- Try to remember if someone else has a key to your car.
Does a family member, roommate, or friend have access to a copy of your auto key? If so, you can call that person for help. However, if no one else has a key to your car, or it will take them a long time to arrive, proceed to Step 5.
- Call Raleigh Locksmith Group at (919) 372–3667.
One of our experts will arrive promptly. You’ll quickly regain access to your vehicle at an affordable price. Even if you are out of town and need a locksmith in Cary, we’ll be there quickly.
Raleigh Locksmith Group prioritizes your security. We know that being locked out of your car is a locksmith emergency!
What you should NOT do if you lock your keys in your vehicle:
- Please do NOT call a locksmith company that is not licensed and bonded.
You should never hire a locksmith company that is uninsured, unlicensed, or inexperienced. In order to protect your welfare, the North Carolina Locksmith Licensing Act states that only licensed companies may perform locksmith services in NC. We responsibly update our license with NC Locksmith Licensing Board and we are a bonded company.
- DON’T try to break a car window, door, or lock.
Getting your key back is not worth hurting yourself or damaging your vehicle.
- Do NOT try to pick a lock on your car.
Of course, intentionally breaking a lock will destroy part of your car. However, if you try to pick the lock, you will probably end up with the same result: a damaged vehicle. Only a professional locksmith should work on your vehicle’s locks. “Do-it-yourself” projects can be fun, but picking your auto lock is not a Pinterest “DIY” adventure. A little patience will save you a lot of frustration and money. We will be there as soon as possible and solve the problem.
Relax, Raleigh Locksmith Group is on your team!
