It’s inevitable, at some point in our busy lives almost everyone will lock their keys in their car at least once.

Not All Vehicles are Made Equally
In the past, vehicles were relatively simple to get into. In fact, local fire departments or law enforcement officers could be dispatched to offer assistance to someone who was locked out of their vehicle. Things aren’t that simple anymore. Years ago, automakers began to step up security measures with their vehicles to lower the number of thefts that occurred. They have made it increasingly difficult for one to get into a locked vehicle and for that reason, law enforcement and fire department personnel will no longer take on the liability of helping someone break into their car when they’ve locked their keys inside. It is a liability from the damage that may be caused.
Are Towing Companies Allowed to Open Your Car?
Tow companies are one of the few people who have access to new and improved lockout kits designed for today’s cars. Each year, lockout kit companies study the way vehicles are developing and changing, they then custom make lockout kits that will effectively open these vehicles without damaging the components on the car such as electrical systems, air bags, tint, windows, locking systems etc. These kits are not available to just anyone and are very pricey. Citywide Towing Servicetakes the time each year to train our employees on the proper tactics of how to safely open these newer cars without causing damage.
