Your car has been sitting at the parking lot for hours and we’re desperately searching for our lost car keys…. Maybe you forgot it at the restaurant table, or maybe you dropped it while hurriedly exiting the supermarket…. Regardless of what your “lost my car keys “ story is, we at UK Auto Locksmith are here to help you get a new set ASAP!

UK Auto Locksmith – 24/7 At Your Service

After you’ve finished searching every possible nook and corner, you can start thinking of how to get replacement car keys, particularly if you don’t have a spare set of keys. You could contact your dealer and buy a brand new set or choose the pocket-friendly option of calling your reliable and trustworthy auto locksmith who can make a new set of car keys on the spot and even reprogram it for you.

Firstly, you need to figure out the kind of replacement key that you will require. Check whether it is a traditional car key, car key fob, transponder key, car key fob, and switchblade key, or a smart key/keyless ignition. Auto locksmiths have the tools as well as the technology to cut and program an identical set of car keys to the one you have misplaced or lost. A trained auto locksmith would be able to make a replacement car key even if you have lost the original one. Your auto locksmith can reprogram the locking system and render your old set of car keys useless, and reconfigure the locks on your car doors and ignition, depending on your car’s age.

Contrary to popular belief, if you do not have the key code, your auto locksmith can still create a new car key provided you give him the following information — the vehicle’s model, make, and year of manufacture, vehicle registration number, VIN, or vehicle identification number, personal identification, and your present location.

Insurance companies offer Key Replacement Cover for your car keys. It is usually an add-on to your vehicle’s Comprehensive Insurance Policy but not a standalone cover. If you pay an additional premium, this Key Replacement Add-on will cover the cost incurred by you for replacing the car keys of your insured vehicle’s key. This cover is applicable if you lose your car keys or they are stolen or damaged or covers the bill you have paid to fix or repair the lock-set in case the key or lock is damaged. However, this cover comes with a rider and also has a list of exclusions

where you will not be covered such as failure to produce an invoice or receipts for the claim or payments made, etc.

I lost my car keys and rang around to get someone to come round. But only UK Auto Locksmiths managed to get someone out... the same day. Sol was great on the phone, gave me a good price and confirmed the engineer would be out later in the afternoon. The engineer arrived on time and sorted my keys out.
