Initially, and we completely understand, you may feel panicked at being locked out.  Do not worry, and simply like anything else, try to keep a calm, and collected head.  Since we are located in Philadelphia, hopefully any locksmith will be able to arrive shortly.  Keep in mind, Top Notch is on call for any and all emergencies, so please do not hesitate to contact us.  If not, you may be waiting for some time.  Below are some ideas to not only keep safe, but keep dry while waiting to get into your vehicle.

First Things First, Get To Safety

Yes, very straight-forward, but important.  If rain is pouring or snow is falling, not only is your personal safety important, but your cell phone safety is also a high need.  Now you may be near a local establishment or in a friendly neighborhood, but if not, keeping your personal phone dry is pivotal.  While the best recommendation is to get somewhere dry, like a business, bus stop or a home, nature can also be an asset.  Please be careful if your time of despair is during a lightning storm. DO NOT stand beneath a tree.  If you must, please make sure there is a taller object nearby. Safety first!  Do not touch anything metal.  If in a blizzard, any shelter will be worthwhile.

Get The RIGHT Estimate

Once you have found shelter, getting in contact with a locksmith technician.  While price is always important, based on your current predicament, time should be a major benefactor.  Ensure you not only receive the price, but also receive an estimated time.  On a personal note, as a phildelphia locksmith, we do tend to get busy.  We not only try to get to each individual, but also try to help as many people as possible.  Its why we got into the business!  With this in mind, some technicians can get caught up in their current job.  Ensure, and have your contact repeat, you have an exact time in mind.  If your current contact is unable to at least give a 20-30 minute window, please reach out to another.

Why Call Top Notch First

We may be a bit biased, but we are the best.  From price, to service, to ownership, to reviews, Top Notch is the best for a reason.  As a general rule of thumb, if you are searching for locksmith, phildelphia, take a moment to look at their reviews.  Reviews are extremely important in selection.  If you simply choose based on a need, and skip the research, you may not only be paying more, but may be waiting longer in the rain or snow.  If you are ever locked out or in need of assistance, please do not hesitate to reach out!
