You know the feeling of being stuck outside your office, store or apartment without keys. You lost them, forgot them or whatever.
Some enterprising New Yorkers came up with a nifty service called NewYourKey.
You register and pay your membership for the service, let them store copies of these most important keys (including car keys)and call them when locked out. They come to the rescue.
Membership starts at $30.00 (for basic service) and there is a $20 minimum fee for each rescue mission.
They use a Global Positioning System to track their Rescue Vans so they can tell you how long or short the wait will be.
A bargain compared to a visit from the locksmith, if you can get him to come.
So far I believe the service is only available in New York City.
Kudos to them for the bright idea.
Maybe I should add something like this to the list of services we provide at New Jersey Concierges.
I discovered the company on Springwise.
