Car Trunk Lockouts: What Should You Do When You Lose Your Keys?

We can get your trunk open and your keys recovered in almost no time at all!
Car Trunk Locks
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.
So what steps should you take once you've realized the keys are locked in the trunk?
