  When you do have to call a locksmith for a locked out situation make sure it is an authentic licensed company and not a fraud/scam, out of state dispatch service, the one's that advertise all over the Internet. Ask for a license number and check to make sure it is a valid local license * (see below). Proper I.D. from the customer is required before a locksmith can open a locked door and must be recorded on the work order. Would you really want to give your I.D. to an unlicensed person or scam company whom may return when your not home and proceed to relieve you of your valuables?

  If you're in a parking lot or the mall while shopping and you discover you're locked out of your car, You can call the police or the mall security guard if there is one and have them stay with your locked out car while you contact a locksmith. You maybe tempted to call a tow company to get cheaper rates, but most tow truck operators are not properly trained for lock outs and may actually damage your car. Just ask any locksmith how many cars they have repaired because of the damage cause be tow company's.
