Dealership vs. auto locksmith: who do you call when you've lost your car key?

Sales Galmier - Monday, February 12, 2018

 

Murphy’s law: anything that can go wrong, will… and usually at the worst possible time!

There are a couple of things that seem like they’re cursed by Murphy’s law. We’re talking things like traffic, your alarm not going off... and of course, losing your car keys.

For some reason, you always seem to lose your keys at the worst possible time. Maybe you have a job interview, a party, or even a first date. No matter how hard you look, you just can’t find them. It’s like they’ve vanished into thin air.

Just great.

Your car manual will tell you to call your dealership for replacement keys.

Take it from us however, the first person you should be calling when you lose your car keys (after the people you’re meeting, of course) is your local auto locksmith!

There are two major reasons why calling an auto locksmith near you is still the best choice.

1. Your auto locksmith comes to you

It should go without saying that when you lose your car keys, getting around gets a lot trickier!

No dealership will send someone out to you to cut a spare key. In fact, they’ll almost always require you to come to them - how you’re meant to do that without a set of car keys isn’t something they really think about.

Of course, that normally means organising (and paying for… AND waiting for!) a tow truck. Who has the time or patience for that?!

On top of that, your dealership can sometimes take days to get back to you with a spare. Some might give you a loan car, which is great... but you need to get somewhere now.

If you need to get back into your car ASAP, your first port of call should be your local auto locksmith!

An auto locksmith knows that you’re not getting anywhere without a car - that’s why we come to you! Galmier Locksmiths can create a spare set of keys on the spot, quick and smart.

 

2. Your locksmith is a true expert

You wouldn’t call a plumber to fix a broken cabinet. You wouldn’t go to a butcher for a wedding cake. Why should your keys be any different?

Your dealership focuses on selling and maintenance - keys are just one small part of what they do. Your local locksmith on the other hand deals with keys and locks on a day-to-day basis - needless to say, we know our way around keys!

Never underestimate your local auto locksmith’s knowledge and skills when it comes to your car keys. Modern car keys are much more than just a piece of metal - when was the last time you used a car that didn’t have remote unlocking?

When you call an automotive locksmith, you can be confident that you’re paying for expertise. We can cut and program all sorts of keys for a wide variety of car brands.

From your run-of-the-mill Toyotas and Holdens all the way up to luxury models, if it has a lock and a key, we can do it!
