Your car could be stolen too
Every year, an estimated 50,000 vehicles are stolen. Car locks and keys are critical for reducing the risk of having your car stolen. A lost or forgotten key is a common cause for vehicle theft as thieves only need a few minutes to break-in and steal the vehicle.

Thousands of customers have trusted our auto locksmiths throughout the years to install high security auto locks, car alarms, remote control door locks, keyless entry remotes and other high end security systems.
Reprogramme your vehicle
To prevent theft, we recommend that you install a transponder car alarm system, which will immediately alert you and law enforcement authorities if someone tries to break into your car. For extra security, in addition to an alarm system, after you have reported the crime to the police, AutoLocks Ltd offers reprogramming of your vehicle’s computer so that your car will not allow the engine to start.
Deprogramme the stolen keys
If your car is stolen and the police are unable to find it, you may have little hope of getting your car back. Fortunately, our team uses patented technology to deprogramme stolen keys and immobilise them. This means that even if a thief tries to start your car with the stolen keys, they will not work and they will be useless to the thief. We can perform this service at your own convenience in less than a minute without having to take apart your car or take it somewhere for expensive repairs.
Reconfigure locks and ignition
With your ignition and door locks changed by a qualified locksmith after a break-in, you remove one of the easiest ways for a thief to drive your car away again. The new lock will be harder to pick or even force out of place, requiring the criminal to spend more time trying to get inside your vehicle and getting frsutrated.
What Do You Do if You Have Lost Your Car Keys?
Claim on your car insurance policy
It’s easy to ring up a claim against your insurance. You phone the company, tell them you’ve lost your car keys and you don’t have a spare. They will no doubt ask for evidence that you genuinely need these new replacement keys – perhaps a receipt or something similar. You will then be told that they require a professional locksmith to estimate the cost of replacement of the keys.
Claim on a ‘key cover’ policy
Did you know that most home and car insurance policies include ‘key cover’ at no extra cost? ‘Key cover’ is often a forgotten item on standard home and car insurance, but is in fact remarkably affordable. The insurance company will pay for the cost of replacement keys by a professional locksmith – so long as they can confirm that you have lost your keys.
Call your breakdown service
You might want to call in a breakdown service to come and tow your vehicle to a local garage. There are various drivers who will drive out to wherever you are to provide this service. Generally speaking, you’ll get this done rather quickly since there is no need for a courtesy vehicle or a pickup from home. It’s all taken care of for you. But you will have to pay a hefty price for the towing.
Buy a new set of car keys
When you purchase a new set of keys, the auto dealer will ask for your vehicle identification number (VIN) to ensure that the keys can be cut properly and fit the ignition properly. Once this is done, you can have the locksmith service work on getting your broken car open for you—replacing any chipped or broken glass, soldering any wires, or performing any other similar work that may be required.
Get a spare car key cut
As car thieves become more sophisticated, so have the means to protect your vehicle from them. Many vehicles today require a scan tool which is part of the computer system of your vehicle in order to disable the anti-theft device. A skilled and honest locksmith can use a high-security code reader to access your cars VIN (Vehicle identification number) and program a duplicate key. This preserves all of your original lock cylinders, lock buttons, door latches and electronics in perfect working order.
Get a new set of keys from a franchised dealer
Getting a new set of car keys from your local dealer is cheaper than replacing the complete ignition system. Also, it is impossible to duplicate a transponder key without having access to the original programming tool. But this process is typically inconveniencing and time-consuming.
Find a specialist auto locksmith
Your car keys may be small, but losing them can be stressful and if you don’t act quickly, dangerous. Often, what you really do need if you lost your car keys is a professional specialist auto locksmith.

“Hi AutoLocks Ltd team, just wanted to let you know we have received the replacement keys first thing this morning. Thanks again for all your help and great communication, your customer service has been fantastic.” Best wishes, Andy.
“A locksmith I contacted to quote the job was a pleasant enough man but agreed he could not guarantee the work and had to order in locks from Germany. He then asked for payment in advance. I telephoned AutoLocks Ltd and spoke with Andy. I explained my situation and he offered a more favourable price than his competitor had quoted. For the first time since the lock out, I felt reassured everything would be ok.”
