Immediate Action for Lost Car Keys

Discovering your car keys are missing can escalate stress quickly. Follow these initial steps to begin resolving the situation with ease:

Stay Calm and Search: Take a moment to calmly re-check familiar places where you might have left your keys. Sometimes, they’re not lost but misplaced, and more often than not, when we re-look, we find our lost keys (even though we looked in that place and they weren’t there)!

Secure Your Vehicle: If possible, ensure your vehicle is in a safe location. If you suspect your keys have been stolen, consider the safety of your car.

Gather Essential Information: Please have your vehicle’s make, model, and year ready to help us assist you quickly. If available, note your vehicle identification number (VIN) in the engine bay, around the driver or passenger door opening, or on insurance documents.

  • Vehicle Make (i.e. Volvo)
  • Model (e.g. XC90)
  • Year (2022)
  • VIN 

1. Call us to book an appointment

Most appointments will be the same day you call. But depending on how busy we are, some appointments will be the following day.

2. Vehicle entry

Losing your car key often means the car will be locked. We need to open the car to get you a new replacement key programmed. We normally pick the door lock to gain entry in a couple of minutes.

3. Key Cutting

Next we need to cut the key to the car. Even if the car has keyless entry, we will still need to cut the key to the car. We do this in various ways depending on the car we are working on.

4. Key Programming

Next is the key programming. Once the key is programmed the key will then start the car. If the car has remote central locking it will work the remote system as normal!

No Hidden Charges

Upon calling, you will need to know the make and model of your car, and the address the vehicle is at. We will then be able to give you a price for a replacement key. That is the final cost. There will be no hidden or additional costs involved.

Types of Keys We Replace and Program

Remote Keys:

Popular for their convenience, remote keys allow you to lock and unlock your car from a distance. If your remote is lost or broken or the buttons have worn out, we can replace and program a new remote key.

Transponder Keys:

Featuring an embedded microchip, transponder keys increase your vehicle’s security by communicating with the car’s immobiliser. We can cut and program new transponder keys, ensuring your vehicle recognises and responds to your new key.

Flip Keys:

A sleek combination of a traditional key and a remote, flip keys fold into a compact, protective case. We replace damaged or lost flip keys, including cutting and programming the flip-out blade and remote functions.

Keyless Entry Systems:

For the ultimate convenience, keyless entry systems allow you to unlock and start your car without touching your key. If you’re having issues with your keyless entry fob, we can diagnose and resolve the problem, from battery replacement to reprogramming.

Our Core Services for Lost or Stolen Car Keys Include:

Key Cutting:

We can create a perfect match for your car’s lock using precise cutting technology, even if you don’t have the original key.

Key Programming:

Modern car keys require programming to ensure they communicate correctly with your vehicle. Our technicians have the latest tools to program keys and remotes to work seamlessly with your car’s systems.

Locked out of your car? Our team provides rapid, damage-free entry to your vehicle, getting you back inside quickly and safely.
