Boston KEYS LOCKED IN TRUNK
What Do You Do When Your Keys Are Locked In the Trunk?
We have been helping the people out with their automotive locksmith needs for many years. One of the most common calls we get is for a set of keys locked in a car trunk. It happens all the time; the keys slide out of a hand or a front pocket without the person realizing, or they set them down inside the trunk while loading some heavy items and then forget they are in there. Everyone does it at some point or another, but it can be a shock when it happens.
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?
Opening a trunk used to be simple, and still is on some older models of cars. The locksmith could either pick the lock or, on some models, get in through the back seat by one means or another. Technology has increased to stem the rising tide of thefts from car trunks, however. That means enhanced security measures on some vehicle models, which is good for keeping out thieves but bad when you lock your keys in the trunk. Fortunately, a skilled locksmith still has a variety of options for retrieving your keys.
It's important to know what a locksmith's procedure is when handling a trunk lockout. Some lack the training or expertise to bypass certain trunk security features and can only re-key the lock, which will necessarily be more expensive. Our experienced team will assess the situation and open the trunk without re-keying if it is possible. This can save you quite a bit of money.
If you lock your keys in the trunk, don't panic. Just keep calm and follow the following steps.

When Trunk Locks Need to be Re-keyed
Rekeying of a lock can mean a replacement of the cylinder, but more often we can simply make a new key for your existing cylinder. This is done in circumstances where the locksmith simply cannot get the lock open with their tools for some reason, and there are no other known ways to open the trunk without causing damage to it. Fortunately, whatever the circumstances might call for in terms of re-keying, we can handle it on the spot with the tools we have on hand. Our team spends a lot of time keeping up with automotive industry developments and making sure we have the right tools for any job.
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.
We understand that an automotive lockout can be scary and frustrating. After all, we see them all the time! Our goal is to put your mind at ease and to get you back on schedule as fast as possible. We're also happy to set you up with a backup key so you can avoid future emergency calls. We strive to get to you within half an hour of your call, no matter when it is placed. Restoration of access to your trunk usually takes significantly less time than that!
In an emergency situation, you don't want to play around with inexperienced and untrained locksmiths. They might go straight to a service that is needlessly expensive, they might leave you stranded for hours, or they might even damage your trunk. call us for a fast, professional response that gives you the best result at the most affordable price.
