Emergency Locksmith Situations

There are quite a few emergency situations that we called out to assist with on a daily basis and if you are experiencing a situation do not be stressed or alarmed it is normal and happens to everyone.

Some of the situations include:

Key lockout

It is quite common people leave their homes in a rush in the morning getting started on the trip to work, and they forget their keys leaving them locked inside their home.

Quite commonly these keys also have their car keys on the key ring so they cannot go to work and they cannot get in their house either.

If you are wondering what to do when you lock yourself out, then call a local locksmith to assist.

Open a locked window from the outside

Help! Locked keys in the car

You have popped out to the shops to get something for dinner and have realized you left your keys in the car, your general thought maybe is to try and break the window but it can get messy and end up rendering your vehicle useless until you get your window fixed.

If your car is locked with the key inside it is best to call someone who knows how to open the vehicle with the least damage possible.

If you have lost your car keys and can’t find them, you can ask the locksmith to provide you with some replacement car keys, if there a mobile service they can get you some keys cut on the spot.

Lost keys, Can’t find them

It is quite common also that people lose their keys when they are out on their journeys through the day, maybe they are travelling on the train or walking long distances and drop them somewhere.

This can be troublesome as other people can find these keys and them may be able to find your home and use the keys to gain entrance.

If you have lost your keys and can’t find them, it might be beneficial to get your locks re-keyed or completely changed as it can be dangerous for you and the family.

If you are experiencing any of the problems, remember don’t worry there is always someone around the corner that can help.

Your local locksmith can assist, or you can call us to assist you. Just give a call and explain your problem, different locksmiths will somewhat different in costs and have different rates.
