Why You Shouldn’t Leave Your Car Alone When You Lose the Key


Most people have been in a situation where they have lost their key while out and about, or perhaps left it in the car itself, and weren't sure what to do. Some decide that it is easier to use a rideshare app to go home, get a spare key and come back to open their car. Others are just too tired to deal with the problem right now and go home to sleep to come back and sort the issue out later. However, here are a few reasons why you should never leave your car alone and should instead call for a car lockout professional to get you inside.

Towed Away

Depending on where you live and where you parked, there is a decent chance that if you do not move your car within a certain timeframe it will get towed. Even in spaces where public parking is allowed, if local security or residents feel your car has been there too long they may get it towed just to ensure no one has abandoned it there. Leaving it somewhere overnight is asking for trouble and perhaps a far bigger issue than you might have originally expected, especially if you have to pay to get your vehicle back.


Smash-and-grab crimes are so very easy when it comes to cars that are left in a spot for too long. All it takes is a heavy object of some kind and an overzealous thief can simply break your car window and get whatever belongings are in sight before scurrying off. The longer you leave your car alone, the more likely it is to become a target for criminals who see it as an opportunity for some very easy cash with little to no risk on their behalf because of how quickly they can leave the scene. 


Vandalism is an unfortunately common crime across many cities in America and all it takes is a couple of local teens to recognize a car that is not usually from that area for it to become a target. Maybe you parked in a spot they usually use without realizing it, or perhaps they saw you return to it and not being able to open it and realized the situation you are in. This can cost you a whole lot more than a simple car lockout service which would have you back in your vehicle in no time, with very short waiting periods and instant solutions when they arrive.

My Garage Sale Safe

I have always been a big fan of garage sales. There is just something about the ability to stop and pick up hidden treasures for an incredibly low price that always gets my blood flowing. So when I spotted a top of the line safe at a local sale for an amazingly low price, I simply could not help myself. After years of sitting in my garage unused, I decided to finally move my safe into the house. The problem was, I had forgotten the combination. Thankfully, a local locksmith was able to help me gain access to the safe. While watching the locksmith work, I was fascinated by the way he bypassed the safe's lock. Suddenly I found myself wanting to learn this skill. Throughout the course of research, I learned a lot about the profession of locksmiths. Today, I would like to share that knowledge with you.
