What to do when you Locked in a Car?


Locking your keys in the car can happen to anyone and if you have owned a car for a while, chances are that you have locked your keys in the car. Although the new models have a remote control to open the car, but the old cars still open manually, and the ratio of old cars is higher than the new ones. If you have ever locked your keys in the car, then you will know how frustrating it is. Assuming that you don't have the spare key of your car and you also don't want to risk the damage we have some tips for you that can help you in this situation.


Stay calm:

The first thing you need to do is to stay calm. This is not your fault, and it can happen to anyone. Although getting panicked is normal, but this will not provide you with the solution. Stay cool and check whether all the doors are locked or not. Calling an emergency locksmith Henrico will the last step that you will consider. But before then, do yourself a favor and do a double check of your doors. This sometimes helps the driver, and you don't have to wait and spend money to get your car unlocked.


Try to unlock the door yourself:

As I mentioned that, this would help sometimes and not every time. If all the doors are locked, then you have to find some other way to get your car unlocked. You can try yourself to unlock the car. Many people left their window of the car slightly open for the proper ventilation, and we all know that ventilation is important for your car. You can try to push the window down a little further. But don't overdo it because it can damage your window. Just push it down so that you can put your hand inside the car. If you can use manage to put your hand inside the car, then you can reach the lock and can unlock your car.

Break the car window:

Mostly we don't recommend this option because it will damage your car and the chances are that you might also get hurt. But if it is an emergency and you can't wait, then you can break the window of the car. But remember that this will cost you around 50 dollars or more and if unfortunately, you damage some other part of the car in the process then you have to pay more than that.


Hire a mobile locksmith service:

Hiring a mobile locksmith service is the most reliable option to consider. It is the highly recommended option because it does not contain the risk of any damage. The best part is that you don't have to spend too much time and you don't use bricks and stuff. A certified locksmith undergoes extensive training, and they can fix almost any kind of lock. Keep a number certified locksmith on your phone, and it will help you in case of emergencies. This is not as expensive as to break into your car through the window. You can also consider a towing car to get your car home and then you can consider service of a locksmith or can use a spare key. Forgetting keys in a car is a very common mistake that car owners make. So, instead of getting depressed about it try to take action immediately.
