Most locksmiths, but not all, will let you back in your car should you lock your keys inside. The average response time is between 15 and 25 min. give or take based on traffic. When you call, we will get a detailed description of the vehicle and where it is located. When our tech arrives he will first locate the vehicle, then when located and positive ID made will look inside to see if the keys are visible.
"NOTE" : if the keys are visible he will then
open the car and remove the keys.
YES even if you are not at the
vehicle. The reason for this is YOUR protection, there are a lot of
crooks out there that would break the window and drive away in your car.
So I strongly suggest that you not leave your car unattended. If you
must leave, to get to a phone to call a locksmith, then try to have
someone else watch your car for you or after you call get back to your
car as soon as possible or at least be in a place where you can watch
I can't STRESS this STRONGLY enough, HERE'S WHY - Back in 1997
I was called out to unlock a guys car, upon arrival I found the car and
saw the keys in the ignition, then went into the office building to
locate the owner. When the owner and I returned outside, the car was gone
with only a pile of glass on the ground. The car had been stolen.
So NOW it is our policy, after positive ID of the vehicle, that if the keys are visible and there is nobody
around, We will unlock the car and remove the keys. Then try to locate
the customer or will wait by the car until the customer returns.
