There is no worse feeling than getting locked out of your own car, especially when you are in a real hurry to get somewhere. This happened to me once, and I was in big trouble because of this.
I was shopping at Wal-Mart for hair perm gel and motor oil with my 6-year old and carrying a lot of fried chicken spray. Now, I have no clue how it happened, but by the time I got to my Pontiac, I realized that my car keys were nowhere in my pocket. I searched everywhere for them, but they just weren’t there.
I went back to Wal-Mart and looked at all places possible for my car keys; but no, they were nowhere to be found. It was a really terrible time for me, made worse by the fact that my little Shaquille started crying. He was hungry and sleepy and wanted to use the toilet. He just wanted to get home! There was barf and smells all over. It is a terrible, terrible situation, as you can imagine, for any parent.
I always keep a spare key in the car, so it was just a matter of opening the car door and getting to that. Of course, I have no skills or expertise at opening the car door, and I strongly advise against doing anything like that. You will only damage your car and can end up spending thousands on the car repair.
Fortunately I had the number of this South Austin automotive locksmith on my speed dial. So, why did I choose this South Austin automotive locksmith to open my car door?
Well, I had hired them a few months back for replacing my car keys, and they had provided excellent service back then. They were prompt and responsive and charged a reasonable rate. So I called them up again, so that they could open the car door for me.
The manager of South Austin Locksmith, who picked up the call, was polite and courteous, took all the details and assured me that he would be sending along a locksmith to my location within 30 minutes. He also gave me an upfront price, and assured me that his technician wouldn’t charge anything extra once he got here.
So, I only had to wait a little while longer before the automotive locksmith van arrived at the parking lot. I waved at the locksmith, Tim. It had taken him only 25 minutes to come to the spot, which was great, considering the circumstances.
Tim greeted me in a friendly manner, talked to my kid and assured him that he would be able to get home real quick. He got to work quickly, used his special tools, did his magic and in just 3 or 4 minutes was able to unlock the car door, without any damage to car whatsoever!
It was a really wonderful feeling when he did that and I remember how my kid shouted with joy when the door was finally opened. I thanked Tim profusely. The whole job cost me only $80, which was the same as the quote given on phone by the manager of the South Austin automotive locksmith. That was wonderful – no hidden charges, no extra fees.
So cut a long story short, I was able to get to my home quickly after that and my kid was suddenly in a great mood. In the future, if I was to get into any situation that required me to call a locksmith, I would certainly call South Austin Locksmith again.
