Why you should get a full lock change
Simply replacing your stolen car key might seem like a sound economical choice, but in the long run and for security’s sake it’s not the best one. If you are truly certain that your car keys were stolen and not lost, then someone out there still has that key.
Unless you change your locks, that person still has potential to threaten your security by stealing your car. That’s why many car insurance companies will require you to change the locks on your car. After all, they’re on the hook for compensating you when your car is stolen so they have a vested interest in the security of your car. It’s always a good idea to check with them when your car keys have been stolen.
