Will you ever require a car lockout service? You can never predict if or when you will ever require such a service.
If you have ever slammed your car door and realized at once that you have just locked your keys inside, you understand the level of panic that it creates. If you had done proper planning, you could have stashed a spare key somewhere safe and convenient that you can use, and the problem would be gone.
However, for most people this is never the case. Most people never give it much though until they are staring through the car window at their car keys hanging in the ignition. Fortunately, a car lockout service is only a call away, and most are actually available 24 hours a day. Therefore, you will always find somebody waiting to answer your call regardless of the time of day it is or where you are.
If you are in a familiar part of town or are close to home, having to wait for the car locksmith to come unlock your door it might not seem that bad. However, if it is 3 A.M. and you are in an unfamiliar part of town, the experience can be quite traumatizing.
You need to take additional measures to guarantee your safety. Once you discover that you are locked out of your vehicle, find a nearby coffee shop or store. Call the car lockout service and request the locksmith to meet you at this location.
Once the locksmith arrives, sorts out your problem and gets you back on the road again, you should give thought to get a spare key or keys made. Keep one of the spare keys in your wallet or purse and attach another to the exterior of your car. You can buy magnetic cases that attach to the wheel well of your vehicle or any other convenient but out-of-sight location.
The next time you slam your car door a moment before realizing that keys are still in the ignition, you will be prepared.
Finally, remember that your car insurance policy might cover the fee for the car lockout service at least in part if you have coverage for emergency road assistance. This will, however, depend on the state you live in as well as the type of policy you have but it can help save some money if you need to call a car lockout service.
