It’s happened to you what all of us who own a car dread: We leave our keys inside the car. They are there, so close to our hands but at the same time so far away and now we have absolutely no idea what to do. It’s normal, we understand that at this moment you can’t process too much of the anger and helplessness you feel. But don’t worry, we have two fundamental steps that can help you in this very cumbersome situation to get out of it fast. So, read on, we’ll get your car keys out of your car as quickly as possible.
Check your alternatives
First it is very important that you analyze your situation, are the keys really inside the car, are they visible, or you don’t know if they are inside or outside? You may have lost them or they may have been stolen, which is a bit more cumbersome than the first assumption. In that case, we recommend you not to leave the car alone for any reason.
In case it is totally visible and you can actually see it clearly, then you will have to go around the car a little bit to see if there is an open door and even if you have access to the trunk. Many times this situation happens to us when we are shopping, so we may have left the back open. In case you are that lucky, you are going to lean out and you are going to try to determine if you are lucky enough that your car by taking the back apart a little bit will allow you to access the car, this would also only work if you are a thin enough person to access through there. If you can, problem solved!
If we do not have this luck, we should think about whether we have taken a copy of our car keys and if so, send someone to look for it because we should not be careless if we do not have our keys in sight. Many times we even leave the remote control at home and only bring the key ring with us. If you have not taken a copy of your keys, you know what to do next time.
Call a Locksmith
Since the automobile is an impenetrable carcass most of the time, the best option we can take for our peace of mind and for the well being of our vehicle, is to have professional locksmith assistance since they have the skills and tools necessary to do the job. If we make a mistake trying to open our door on our own, we will not only have to call a locksmith to open the door, but to repair it and that would be much more expensive than admitting our inexperience from the beginning and calling a trained responsible person to do it.
You have two options when it comes to calling a locksmith, for example, you can call a regular one, or one that offers an emergency service. The difference between these two is the speed of the service and clearly the emergency one will have a small extra cost especially if it is at night, as they work 24 hours a day so you don’t have to spend a night with such a serious problem in an unknown area. They will be for you at all times, around the clock, but we recommend you to act fast and as soon as you locate the problem that you contact a quality one that has an official locksmith license.
Don’t be afraid and sorry you need help, these professionals are there for you and to guide you in new ways to prevent this from happening again such as getting a copy of your car keys.
