Losing Your Car Keys Can Ruin Your Day

We all know that losing your car key is a real drag. It can ruin an otherwise great day. When you need to get somewhere on time, it can be incredibly stressful when you realise it’s missing.

Your car could be stolen too

Car keys which are lost or stolen can be replaced without problems, but the car it unlocks might not be. Because if you think about it, losing your car key is almost like having your car stolen. Because if someone were to find and use a car key that they found, they will then have access to the vehicle and all of its contents (GASP!).

Imagine this scary situation- You lose your car key and then in a vulnerable moment you leave your door unlocked. A thief comes along, steals your car and you don’t even know it because you don’t have your keys with you.

Your insurance may not cover the cost of replacing your car key

Do you know which insurance covers the cost of replacing your car key? Now that most car keys come with a chip, you may think there should be insurance to cover such expensive replacement costs, but many insurers have refused to cover this type of damage.

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

Claim on your car insurance policy

If you’re one of the unlucky ones who’ve lost their car keys, you can claim on your comprehensive car insurance policy. If you lose your car keys you can still recover the cost of replacing them but most motor insurers regard it as an optional extra and won’t cover you for the costs.

Claim on a ‘key cover’ policy

Key cover policies pay for alternative arrangements or the replacement of lost or stolen keys. If your car is stolen, you can claim from a key cover policy if you have fitted one to your vehicle. Key cover policies are sometimes considered as an alternative to a comprehensive motor insurance policy and can reduce the amount of excess payable under that policy.

Call your breakdown service

It’s a good idea to call a breakdown service if you lost your car key. These professionals will carry out a number of actions from popping open the lock to towing your car back to your garage. Under most circumstances, it can be costly to call in a breakdown service to recover your vehicle.

Buy a new set of car keys

When your car keys are stolen, you can order a replacement set of car keys. Because no two keys are alike, lost or stolen key codes can be used to manufacture replacement car keys.

Get a spare car key cut

When someone loses their car keys it can be a major hassle. You may think that you need to get a replacement key cut from the manufacturer, and depending on the vehicle and where you live that might be the case. In many situations, you might not have to go through all that trouble. It is important to note that in most cases, an extra set of car keys can be cut at any locksmith if they have the right equipment.

Get a new set of keys from a franchised dealer

If your car keys are stolen, you should get in touch with a franchised dealer. In most cases, the dealer will be able to assist you by issuing a new set of keys. However, the process often is costly and inconveniencing with lots of delays.

Find a specialist auto locksmith

Losing your car keys is a hassle. If you’re locked out of your vehicle, you may think about breaking the window open or getting a new set of keys made. But these are both solutions that can cost a lot of money and time. If there’s a specialist auto locksmith nearby, they you can get in your car and replace your lock quickly and easily.
