As Lalor the snake catcher pointed out later, coastal carpet pythons might look a little scary, but they pose no threat to humans. He went ahead and escorted the snake out of the garage, just to help this homeowner get on his way.
"He was about to head off to work but couldn't get into this car," Lalor told Chinchilla News, adding that intervention like this isn't really necessary. "A big part of what we do is education. If we can get around relocating them, we will but if someone has a bad phobia we will come get it."
In the end, the "problem" solved was never really a problem to begin with — but it's fair to say that it was a memorable morning all around.
