A Missing or Lost Car Could Mean a Ruined Day

Every time your keys go missing, you have a looming problem. Think it can’t happen to you? Think again. Car key loss is a reality for many drivers and can be an expensive nightmare if it happens to you.

Your car could be stolen too

The fact is your car could be stolen if someone got hold of your remote car entry (aka remote car starter or digital key) or copied your overhead key. It can happen that you lost your car key sometimes too.

Cost of replacing your car key may not be covered by your insurance

Many insurance companies don’t cover the cost of replacing a car key unless you purchase a new fob.

What Do You Do if Your Car Keys Are Stolen?

Stop stolen keys being used

Stopping a car key thief from coming back is just a matter of taking away their ability to get away. Their mission will be disrupted because the car won’t start. Your goal should be stopping thieves before they start. You can rekey your home locks in as little as one hour with the help of our mobile locksmith service at AutoLock Ltd.

We are available 24/7 for emergency services including unlocking locked doors and replacement of lost or stolen keys. The AutoLocks technicians are highly trained specialists in the auto-lock business. Our automotive locksmiths can rekey your car door locks, replace ignition switches and transponder chip keys. It does not matter what type of car you own. If your car has old or broken keys, Autolocks’ technicians can cut you a new key on-site.

Reprogramme your vehicle

As soon as you know your car keys have been stolen, go to your local dealership or locksmith and reprogramme or replace them right away so you can ensure that no one else has the ability to use your car.

Deprogramme the stolen keys

AutoLocks Ltd. offers a service that shields you from the cost of replacing your vehicle key or keys. We can ‘deprogramme’ your existing automotive vehicle key(s) to protect it from thieves. With our system, car keys are deprogrammed by using an electronic device making the old car key worthless in case of vehicle theft.

Reconfigure locks and ignition

If your car keys are stolen, you need to take extra measures to make sure that your car cannot be started unless the correct key is used. One way to protect your car from unauthorized use and theft is to have its locks and ignition reconfigured by professional locksmiths like AutoLocks Ltd.

What Do You Do if You Have Lost Your Car Keys?

Claim on your car insurance policy

If your car keys are lost or stolen, then simply claiming on your car insurance policy could be a natural option.

Claim on a ‘key cover’ policy

If your keys are lost or stolen, you can claim on your ‘key cover’ insurance for replacement vehicle keys and remotes. The ‘key cover’ policy is a legal contract between you and your insurer. It may be free with other products like car insurance policies or home policies. In case of theft, you’ll have to complete an ‘immediate notification of loss’ form and then an authorised agent will contact the car dealership/spares company on your behalf.

Call your breakdown service

If you have lost your car keys and the spare key is not with you, then you may need to call the breakdown service. You will have to pay for the towing. They will often charge you a hefty price to pop your car.

Buy a new set of car keys

If you lose your car keys, replacing your old car key seems an attractive option. But new keys are often expensive to buy, and new remote car keys can be hard to programme.

Truth is, a new set of car keys for a car is not necessary. Locksmiths are most often able to cut new car keys from existing key fobs, and with a little bit of measuring, even permanent spare car key can be cut from an actual working key.

Get a spare car key cut

You can arrange for a spare car key to be cut. To do so, contact your local original vehicle manufacturer (OEM) dealer to obtain the VIN number and instructions on how to request a replacement key to be made and sent.

At AutoLocks Ltd, we have the knowledge and equipment you need to get a replacement key. Our experienced locksmiths can cut a replacement key based on the design and number code of your original, giving you back access to the interior of your car as soon as possible.

Get a new set of keys from a franchised dealer

If you lost your car keys, you may want to consider contacting your franchised dealer to help produce a new set of keys by using the original equipment manufacturer’s (OEM) technology. But this process is typically expensive, inconveniencing and time-consuming. You can easily get a replacement car key from your local specialist mobile locksmith in Kent.

Find a specialist auto locksmith

If you have lost your keys and you are in an urgent situation to drive your own car then the best option is to quickly find a reliable specialist auto locksmith who will make a new key for you. Automotive locksmiths specialize in key cutting, ignition repair, replacement keys, auto rekeying and more. They are also experts in car remotes, car key transponder systems and fobs.

FAQs

Are lost car keys covered by insurance?
Most likely the answer is yes! Lost car keys are covered by most insurance policies, whether they be your auto insurance or your renter’s insurance policy.

In most cases, if you were to have a key made by a professional locksmith like AutoLocks Ltd, it will likely cost much less than the deductible on your insurance policy.

Can you get a copy of a key without the key?

The modern automobile is a computerized machine with dozens of “black-box” circuit boards running myriad sophisticated functions. Some make driving safer by activating airbags or anti-lock brakes. Others allow us to open doors and start engines with the push of a button.

For replacement car keys by a locksmith in Kent, the price for one is typically between £25 and £60. The price may vary based on factors such as the location of the worker or availability of replacement parts.
