Automobile Lockout FAQ

Here at Nonstop Locksmith, we pride ourselves on our rapid response times for all manners of lock issue calls – and one of the most pressing types of calls that we ever receive are for automotive lockouts. Car or truck lockouts can happen at any time and at any location – and are caused by a myriad of issues from ignition issues to simple lost keys. Here’s a guide to the most common questions that we field from customers regarding car lockouts.

 

How soon will the locksmith arrive at my location?

Our mobile locksmiths will be instantly dispatched to your location, arriving in a median range of 15-25 minutes. This of course depends on distance, location, and time of day – but rest assured, that once you call us, you will be receiving help in no time at all.

 

How long will a car door unlocking service take?

Usually this service takes about 5 minutes – however, if you have custom high security locks, or are dealing with an exotic or antique vehicle, it might take slightly longer.

 

Will unlocking my car doors damage my vehicle?

Absolutely not. Our locksmiths take every care and effort to ensure that cars don’t get damaged during the unlocking process. Sometimes, however, in situations where cars are deadlocked and keys are stuck in the trunk, the trunk may have to be drilled and new locks can be installed.

 

How much do car lockout services usually cost?

These services usually ranger around 30-40 dollars, but the cost is usually determined by other factors of distance, service time, and materials used.

 

I can’t unlock my car door! What should I do?

Remain calm. Ensure that your car isn’t in a location that puts you in danger, and move out of the way of oncoming traffic or active parking lots. Stand somewhere safe, and call us as soon as possible.

 

Can you open up deadlocked cars?

Sure. Some car brands like Ford, Land Rover, or BMW utilize industry standard deadlocks – and we understand the bypass methods, so rest assured that we can troubleshoot the issue, quickly reopening your car’s outfit with a strong deadlock.

 

Do you ever find it impossible to unlock a car door?

We’ve never experienced a car door that we can’t unlock – but nothing is impossible. That being said, we highly doubt that we’re ever going to come across a car (or any type of!) door that we find it impossible to unlock – it’s simply what makes us expert automotive locksmiths!

Non-Stop sent Chuck to do my door. I had to change keys because my abusive boyfriend finally moved out. He was very friendly and very professional. He even arrived about 5 minutes before the time he was supposed to be! He told me that he has worked for this company since they opened. It took him only about 20 minutes to do everything. The price is reasonable: $65 flat rate and $35 per door. I work on a customer service-oriented job and I can definitely say that this company excels in that part. If you need a locksmith in the Logan Square, Avondale area, don’t waste your time with other companies. Just call Non-Stop! Thanks, Chuck!

Had a car lockout and needed an ignition key. Went to the Infiniti and Nissan dealership (Berman’s Infiniti) to “try” and get stuff sorted out but was met with bad service and tons of misinformation which left a bad impression. One person said one thing and the tech said another. I lost a lot of time and wasted effort trying to get stuff from the dealer’s service center. Then I got a referral to Non-Stop locksmith to get the job done. Quote was accurate had a great job done, courteous service and fast quality work. Dude made keys on the spot! My tech Robert went up and beyond my expectations to help me out of a jam.

My husband and I just bought our first place and needed the locks changed. Being that we needed it done quickly and after business hours (right after closing), I took a chance on going with the first place on Yelp. I couldn’t be happier!! CHRIS came out and was fantastic. He’s very knowledgeable on his craft and super friendly. He got the job done fast and the locks/keys work great. I’m actually about to call again, right now, to change another lock we didn’t know to change that night (for a storage room). Now, I’ve never needed locks changed, but I thought the prices to be reasonable. They charge by the item, not the hour, and gave me pricing right over the phone.
