So you’ve done the unthinkable: you’ve locked yourself out of your car. Rest assured it happens to everyone, but that doesn’t stop an unplanned lockout from being all the more frustrating. Few things are worse than spoiled plans—especially if that spoiling is caused by human error, forgetfulness, or exhaustion.


So what should you do? After the moments of sheer rage and panic have passed, definitely call Unparalleled Parking. We’re a Twin Cities valet parking service that also offers swift lockout help, no matter your location within the area. Our valet company drivers get in and out of hundreds of cars daily; should they make the same easy mistake of locking themselves out, they always carry the tools needed to fix the problem.


While we’re on our way, though, you definitely need to take steps to ensure your own safety, especially if it’s late at night. Read on to discover how to keep yourself and others safe in the event of a lockout.

Reach an Observable Area

In certain circumstances, such as broad daylight, you may feel comfortable waiting beside your car for your transportation company to arrive. That said, if it’s late at night and you feel unsafe waiting outside, move to a well-lit, public area; keep your car in view if possible. Bus stops and convenience stores work well in this respect.


If you will not be waiting beside your car, be sure to keep in contact with us. Our valet lockout services will need to meet with you so we can unlock your vehicle!

Do Not Accept Help from Strangers

Although you may be tempted to vent your frustrations to the passerby, refraining from doing so can save your life. Admitting you’ve locked yourself out is admitting to being stranded in the city with nowhere to go—in other words, you’re admitting you are vulnerable.


If you do need emotional support in a situation such as this, call a friend and inform them of your situation. Let them know you’ve called a valet lockout service and that you will be calling them again soon to confirm that you are safe.
