Key trouble with your Toyota or Ford ute? Galmier Locksmiths can help!

Sales Galmier - Friday, November 17, 2017

 

Quick question for all the tradies in the audience: what type of car do you drive, either at work or out of it?

We may not be mind readers or fortune tellers, but we’re fairly confident that a strong majority answered with a ute. More specifically, a Ford Ranger or Toyota Hilux.

In fact, these two models are actually Australia’s two best selling cars as of September 2017! Yes, after years of small cars leading the pack sales-wise, utes are one again back in fashion.

So if you happen to run into key trouble with your Ford or Toyota ute, what should you do?

 

 

We offer car key replacement when you’re on the road

Ford Ranger car key replacement

Ford is one of the oldest names in car manufacturing, its first ever car rolling off the production line in 1903 (fun fact: Henry Ford invented the idea of the production line as we know it!)

The Ranger is one of the more recent additions to Ford’s family, being first released in Australia in 2011.

And in that short time, it’s become the choice of businesses, tradies and individuals nationwide, even surpassing the Toyota Hilux as Australia’s best-selling vehicle in September!

So if you damage or lose the keys to your personal - or work - Ranger, don’t worry! You can trust your local locksmith at Galmier Locksmiths to get you back on the road with Ford Ranger car key replacement.

Toyota Hilux car key replacement

While it hasn’t produced cars quite as long as Ford may have, Toyota is the best-selling car brand in Australia – nay, the world. In Australia alone, the Japanese company beat out its next most popular competitor, Mazda, by a full 70%!

And the Hilux is one of the main reasons for this! As recently as May, it was Australia’s best selling model - before being displaced by the Ford Ranger.

With the mind-boggling number of Toyotas on the road, it’s highly likely Hiluxes make up at least part of your workplace’s fleet. So it’s a good thing that auto locksmiths like Galmier have learned how to work with Toyota locks!

Experiencing key troubles?

Trouble with your key can really let the air out of your tyres. You might lock yourself out of your car, snap your keys in the ignition – or worst of all, you could lose your only set entirely!

It might not happen to you today. It might not even happen to you this year. But accidents happen, and you could very well find yourself stuck without your keys at some point in the future.

So what can you do?

The best option if you find yourself in one of these emergencies is to take the number of a service that can provide car key replacement on the spot!

And Galmier Locksmiths has just the thing for you! Our mobile locksmith service can get you back in your vehicle or replace your broken or lost key on the spot. Our out of hours emergency callout service means that whenever disaster strikes, efficient locksmithing services are to the rescue.

Key cutting

While relegated to a backup role in most new cars today, the good old fashioned car key and physical lock continue to soldier on.

These keys are our bread and butter - whether the good old fashioned mechanically cut, or the more modern and secure laser cut, you can trust Galmier to cut new keys for your Ford or Toyota.

Transponders

First becoming popular in the early 2000s, virtually every new car made today comes with a set of transponder keys. And it’s no wonder they’ve proven so popular: just push a button on your remote and the car unlocks without you having to break your stride.

But what happens if you lose your key transponder?

Fortunately, you don’t have to rely on your physical keys for long! Call Galmier Locksmiths, and we’ll program a new transponder for you on the spot!
