Mid-way through the week Phila-Locksmith brought you a break down of this years most commonly stolen vehicles as well as the least commonly sold vehicles. These statistics were released by the Highway Data Loss Institute and hold a large amount of influence on vehicle insurance rates, especially depending on the area in which live. Cadillac Escalade held the title of most commonly stolen vehicle but this year a new vehicle tops the list thanks to the new security systems that come with Cadillac’s.
A new kiosk is being tested in the New York area at multiple 7-11s that can make copies of some house keys when you are locked out. The service only costs $20 and easily beats the price of an emergency locksmith but Phila-Locksmith has the details on why professional mobile locksmiths would continue to thrive even if these kiosks became popular. Included are also a few reasons why this test sample of kiosks may be the only ones that make it to market.
