Holiday shopping can be fun but distracting and during the holidays the number of accidental auto lockouts increase. The need for auto lockout services are in great demand because so many people lose their keys while shopping or find they locked the keys in their car. It’s easy to say that no one wants to find themselves in this situation. To spare you the experience, Citywide Towing Service will share a few tips on preventing an auto lock out, especially with the distraction of the holiday season.
How to Keep from Locking Your Keys in the Car?
Spare Key: Regardless of the time of year, you will want to prevent getting locked out of your vehicle. One way is to key a spare key of your vehicle in your wallet or purse. Some people will hide a spare key on the vehicle. There are strong magnetic key holders or other similar devices that can be used to hide and attach a spare key on the vehicle. Make sure if you do plan to hide a spare key on the vehicle that it isn’t in a place where it is easy to find. Thieves will search for it.
Practice Good Car Key Habits: Whether you’re out holiday shopping or going to work you will want to make good habits that can help prevent you from losing your keys. One good habit is locking the vehicle after you exit the car with the remote. However, while you are creating the habit of being out of the vehicle with your keys in hand, don’t stop there. Make sure you also create the habit of putting your keys in a secure place. Such as clipping them to your belt, or zip them up inside your purse or bag. This step should happen immediately after locking the door. Be most aware when putting your keys in a secure place. It is said it takes 30 days to create a habit so begin now and develop good habits to help prevent losing your car keys or getting locked out of your vehicle.
Have a Roadside Assistance Company on Speed Dial: Regardless as to what habits we make, we still might find ourselves locked out of our vehicle eventually. In the event you find yourself locked out of your vehicle, know who to call. It is important to have an auto lockout service ready. Roadside assistance service often provides auto lock out services. Do a little research and find a roadside assistance that provides auto lock out services. Depending on the type of car you have and if you have lost your keys, you may even need your vehicle towed. Modern vehicles have theft prevention where you need your key as it uses a special code to start the vehicle. If you lost your key gaining access inside does no good unless your spare is inside the cabin. In this situation you will need towing services. Since the situation can vary it is beneficial to have a provider that offers towing or roadside assistance service. Save their number in your phone.
