When you discover you are locked out of your vehicle, you will begin looking for your keys. The question is, did you lose them or did you leave them inside your vehicle? If you discover your keys are inside the vehicle or you cannot find them, you will need to figure out a solution to this major problem. Citywide Towing Service will share what you need to do to get access to your car.
What to Do when you get locked out of your car?
When you get locked out of your vehicle the first step is to determine where your keys are. Since you are most likely at your vehicle, look to see if they are inside your vehicle. If you do not see them, retrace your steps and see if you left them behind. If your keys are in fact inside your vehicle, the first step is to test each door as well as the trunk to see if they are unlocked. If the doors and trunk are indeed locked, you will need to take further steps. First, do you have access to a spare key? If you are away from home, is there someone who can bring you your spare? If not, you will need to consider your options. You can call a taxi or Uber to take you home to get your spare key and have them bring you back to your vehicle. Or for a faster option, you can contact a towing service that provides Auto-Lockout services. They can quickly gain access to your vehicle and you will probably spend less money than employing a taxi to take you back and forth. If you do not have a spare key, again an Auto-Lockout service is still a great option.
Can a Tow Truck Tow Your Car Without Keys?
If you lost your keys entirely, then calling FOR an auto lockout may not seem very helpful as you will still need a key to drive your vehicle. If you cannot find your keys at all, there is a chance your keys were stolen or fell in a sewer drain, trash can or out of the way place. There are a ton of crazy scenarios that could have happened. When you have lost the key and do not have a spare, you will need to get a new key. You will need to contact the nearest dealership of your vehicle manufacturer. They can often help make a new key to your vehicle. However, that can sometimes take days as you must prove ownership of the vehicle as well as the time to make the keys or re-key the entire vehicle. Now what do you do until you get a new key for your vehicle? Depending on the vehicle’s location, you may want to consider having the vehicle towed. Ask the dealership if they will need the vehicle taken to the dealership or one of the Auto-shops. If they need access to the vehicle you will need to tow it to them. If not, you may want to have your vehicle towed to your home to ensure it is not stolen or vandalized.
