Locked Out of Car FAQs

Should I Call the Police If I’ve Locked Keys in Car?

No. Unless there is an immediate risk to life or significant danger, you should never call the police if you have locked your keys in your car. They will not be able to unlock your car, but they may be able to tow it away for you. This will be at a cost to you, and you will be charged for this service.


I’m Locked Out of My Car, Can I Get in Myself?

When you’re locked out of your car, we strongly advise that you don’t not try and get back in yourself. If your keys are locked in the car, trying to retrieve them yourself can cause more damage to your vehicle and be more costly in the long run.

We suggest that you call out an auto Locksmith, who will be able to get you back in when you are locked out of your car non-destructively and probably quicker.
