This week is looking to be one of the hottest that Portland, OR has ever seen, and Locksmith Plus, Inc. is stepping up its game to ensure that all customers receive prompt, professional service. If you are already locked out of your car, then please call Locksmith Plus, Inc. at (503) 575-9210 for immediate assistance. The majority of our techs are available for service in order to minimize all waits due to the heat. Keep in mind that we do provide help for all of our services, not just lockouts, 24 hours a day.
Now, Locksmith Plus, Inc. would like to take some time to provide tips to beat this Summer heat and potentially avoid using a locksmith altogether! This might go without saying, but we have had to drop everything to rush to customers who have locked pets and or young children in the car. Other than simply not leaving any young children and/or animals in a vehicle unattended, it is imperative to leave windows cracked. However, we highly recommend keeping your children and animals with you even if you only plan on leaving your vehicle for a short amount of time. Losing a key or accidentally locking them in the car is enough of a hassle as it is. With this weather, however, a mistake can easily turn in to negligence.
Avoid Lockouts Altogether!
With that out of the way, there are many things that one can do to avoid being locked out of their home or car. While we like to think that we can manage our keys without misplacing one, the truth is that locking oneself out can affect anyone. We recommend the following tips to save you both time and money in the future:
- Have Duplicate Car Key At Home
- Keep A Valet Key Locked In The Trunk
- Have Designated Place In Home For Keys
- Keep Separate Door Key In Purse Or Wallet
- Keep Spare House Key In Safe Place Outside Home
- Give Trusted Friend Or Neighbor Spare Key
- Always Check Door When Stepping Outside
- Check Pockets Before Leaving Home
The above tips may seem rather obvious, but if you stick to the simple suggestions, you will be much less likely to lose or misplace a key. In turn, this will save you stress, time, and money. Should you still find yourself in a situation that calls for the careful attention of a professional 24 hour locksmith in Portland, then please do not hesitate to call Locksmith Plus, Inc. at (503) 575-9210!
