Albuquerque KEYS LOCKED IN TRUNK
How Do You Handle A Car Trunk Lockout?
So you went to put a heavy load of stuff in your trunk, and your keys slid out of your pocket while you were doing it. Or maybe you put your keys in the trunk while moving a bunch of groceries in or out, and forgot to pick them back up before slamming it shut. So now what?
We understand the feeling of frustration when you realize your keys are stuck in your trunk. You start to worry that your whole day will be disrupted and a chain reaction of horrible things will occur. There's no need to worry, however. We can get your trunk open and your keys recovered in almost no time at all!
What's Up With Your Trunk Lock?
So why is the trunk lock such a problem? With older model vehicles, it really isn't. Locksmiths usually have no trouble opening up older trunks for you. But as cars have become more sophisticated and as thieves have become more keen on stealing from trunks or using them as an entry point, car manufacturers have upped the security measures used in the trunk along with the rest of the car. This requires locksmiths to keep up with all the new stuff being implemented in each new model of car.
Some trunks are designed such that if you lock a key in them, it's virtually impossible to get them open without another key - even for a highly trained locksmith. In these cases, what we do is to re-key the lock for you. That means creating a new key for you right on the spot. This is possible using our fully kitted out mobile response vehicles. We've got all the tools we need on hand to make a new key or even perform a complete lock replacement.
If you lock your keys in the trunk, don't panic. Just keep calm and follow the following steps.

In these cases, our locksmiths are able to fashion a new key just by examining your lock. What's more, our mobile response vans come equipped with all of the tools needed to do this on the spot in a timely manner.

We train our technicians to handle any circumstance so that we can always come through in an emergency for you.
Consider a Backup Key
Did you know that less than 10% of all car owners keep a backup copy of their automotive keys? It's something that people generally don't think about until an emergency lockout situation strikes. A backup key is the quickest way to recover from locking your keys in the trunk. We can create a backup for you on the scene after we've restored access to your trunk. It doesn't take long and is only a modest added cost, but could prevent you from ever having another emergency lockout call with the vehicle. Some people give their backup keys to trusted family and friends to hold in case of an emergency, while others hide the key underneath the car somewhere using a small magnet.
