Don’t Make the Auto Locksmith Call the Last Resort
We often find that by the time you have picked up the phone and called us, you have already tried several methods to get back into the car. Obviously, we all want to save money, but such is security on most cars, the old methods like using coat hangers simply no longer work. Often, all this does is to cause damage to the paintwork. We can assure you the cost of a re-spraying your car, far outstrips the cost of using our services.
Moreover, if you leave the paintwork as it is, you will simply be inviting rust to come and destroy your car over time. Therefore, if you are really locked out of your car it makes far more financial sense to call an auto locksmith than to try methods which will fail.
