Traveling tips from the Automotive Locksmith Expert

Posted on by TopLocksmith in Security Tips

Now that it’s Summer proper, you might be planning a fun vacation. If you’re flying by air, or our favorite, via a road trip, you’re going to want to make sure that you can really enjoy your trip and stay in the moment. This will require you to feel trusting and confident in your security while you’re on the road. This can be difficult to do when you’re distracted by the fun and stimulation of travel, but luckily for you, the experts at Top Locksmith have prepared an excellent checklist of security tips for while you’re on the road.


Spare Keys

  • One great way to avoid getting locked outside your car is to make sure that you have a spare key on you at all times. If you don’t want to carry it on your body, you can attach a magnetic lock box to the undercarriage of your car to make sure that you always have a spare key accessible.

  • If you don’t have a spare key, contact a licensed automotive technician at Top Locksmith today to help make you a duplicate key. They can cut and program the key on the spot.


Attaching Contact Info to Keys

  • Make sure to place your name and phone number on your keychain to increase the chances of getting your keys back if they are lost.

  • We advise against putting any more personal information on your keys, because anything more than your name and phone number can be a big security risk.


Mental Checklists

  • Make a mental checklist of all essential belongings to check for every time you leave your vehicle, including your keys.

  • Every time you leave your vehicle ask yourself the following questions: Do i have keys/ Did i turn off the lights? Do I have my wallet? … Eventually this exercise will become second nature for you, effectively eliminating the chances of you losing your keys.


Measures for really lost keys

  • First of all, retrace your steps, and check all weird areas like seat or car cushions.

  • If you really can’t find your keys, contact a car key specialist at Top Locksmith, who will come directly to your location within 20 minutes to provide, cut, and program you a brand new car key that matches your vehicle on the spot, getting you back on the road in no time at all.

  • When you have a technician making you a car key replacement, make sure to ask them to make a second key at the same time, so you can have a spare key in case anything comes up in the future.
