Unlock A Car

Portland Auto Locksmith

The diversions from the fun during a trip in Portland, Oregon, could unfortunately cause a traveler to suddenly search for an auto locksmith after the car keys have been locked inside a car. There can be more complications if the car has a special type of key, such as a key that has a computer chip. We can handle the problem and can also offer you some suggestions for controlling the problem. You can depend on our 24-hour professional services for commercial and residential customers that are designed for protecting your vehicle and especially for protecting you and your family or your workers during an emergency situation. 

Copies of Car Keys

The primary method for controlling a problem from a car key is to always have more than one copy of a car key with you. Some travelers carry three copies of his or her car key to ensure that there will enough car keys to prevent a future problem, such as from a broken key or from a lost key. A tow truck driver or an auto repair technician could accidentally lose a car key, which could then force you to become stranded in a far away city. 

Convenient Places for Extra Car Keys

Each customer can make a practical decision about the best place for the extra copies of a car key. A jacket pocket is a convenient place if the jacket will always be worn by the person while inside and also outside the car. A jacket pocket is a more practical place for some extra car keys than a purse or a briefcase because the purse or briefcase could also be locked inside a car with the car keys.

Problems from Extra Car Keys

You should control the access to the extra copies of the car keys because that precaution can also be used to increase the probability for having your car to be stolen by a thief. If the extra car keys are inside your jacket pocket, then you should protect your jacket with the same precautions that you would use to protect your wallet. The extra car keys should not be stored on the outside of your car because many professional thieves are accustomed to searching for a nearby hiding place for extra keys. 

Control for Problems from Broken Car Keys

If you use too much force on an ignition key, you could bend or break the key. Occasionally, a key may not turn inside the ignition switch because the ignition switch has been locked into a position after you had sharply turned the steering wheel while you were parking the car. If you turn the steering wheel in the reverse direction, the action may release the ignition switch that had been locked into place by the position of the steering wheel. 

Replacement Car Keys

You can get a replacement key from us. If you have a unique key, then we will help you with information about the best method for you to use to quickly get a replacement key, such as from a local car dealership. With several copies of a car key, you will probably not experience a serious problem if you do break a key or if you must give a key to an auto repair technician because you will always have a copy of the key for your car. 

Plans for Your Trips

When you are making plans for your trips, you should make decisions about some different methods to use to control a problem. If you are traveling with your family, then your husband, wife or eldest child could also have an extra copy of the car key. If you are traveling alone, then you should use extra precautions, such as by having several copies of your car key, because you will be alone during an emergency situation. 

Precautions for Travelers

There is some published online information about precautions for travelers, such as from travel clubs on websites. You may be forced to wait for several hours for a locksmith or a tow truck driver. Many travelers choose to store an extra blanket or a jacket inside a car trunk to compensate for problems from a broken car key, which could force a traveler to wait for several hours for a locksmith or for a tow truck driver during the cold winter months. 

Emergency Precautions

Travelers should also use precautions to ensure that a cell phone battery has an adequate charge to prevent problems. If you are stranded, you will probably be required to rely on using phone calls to request help from a locksmith or from a tow truck service. With an emphasis on emergency phone calls, you should also store your cell phone inside a jacket pocket, such as inside the pocket for a jacket that will always be worn while you are inside or outside the car. 

Safety Precautions

We will help you to ensure that you are safe during an emergency situation and will also offer you some advice to help you to protect yourself and your family while you are waiting for our locksmith. We can phone the police for you if your phone battery is not fully charged or if you want to use fewer minutes from your monthly phone plan. Our objective is to help you to quickly return to your normal daily routine.
