Have you ever locked your keys in your car? This can be a very frustrating experience – especially if your car is still running!
With some newer vehicles, you may have a safeguard built in to keep this from happening. But with many automobiles, this is still a problem that can happen all too easily. It’s such a helpless feeling isn’t it? You’re standing right there so close to your keys and yet so far away!
This actually happened to me a few months ago in Xenia, Ohio. Before I realized it, I locked my car door only to discover that my keys were still inside the car. What was I going to do now?
Fortunately, I was able to call Farmers HelpPoint at 800-435-7764. (I keep this number in my cell phone for emergencies and I still had my cell phone with me.) I knew that my auto insurance coverage with Farmers included towing & roadside assistance. I knew that I was just a phone call away from someone who could help me. I reported the situation to the friendly person at HelpPoint and within 20 minutes they had someone there to assist me.
The roadside assistance specialist pulled out a special tool and was able to open my car door in practically no time at all. I was so relieved! And the cost for this service was billed directly to Farmers so I had no additional charges to pay.
Does your current auto insurance policy include this kind of service? If it doesn’t – or you’re not sure- call our office today at 937-848-6840 and we’ll be glad to set it up for you.
