As a locksmith that specialises in helping stranded motorists, we often get called to help out when someone’s keys going missing.

We all know that awful feeling when you reach into the bottom of your bag and instead of hearing the familiar clink of your keys, you hear nothing.

Or the way your stomach drops when you turn the corner and realise your keys aren’t hanging on the hook by your door where they belong.

Obviously, you’ll want to avoid losing your keys at all in the first place - if you want tips and tricks to stop yourself from ever losing your keys, click here.

Our car locksmith can cut and program new keys… WITHOUT the original!

So you’ve lost your car keys, and you can’t seem to find them anywhere. Luckily for you, an auto locksmith can cut and program replacement car keys for you.

Cutting keys is all about ensuring a perfect fit between the grooves in your car key, and the pins and tumblers in your lock or ignition. When cutting a spare key, we’ll take a key blank and cut grooves into it that correspond with your current keys.

Our experience isn’t limited to physical keys, either - we’ll also program transponder keys as well.

Don’t have an existing key to run with? Lost it entirely? No problem - we can cut replacement keys without the original!

We’re mobile

What does this mean? It’s simple: we come to you!

Whether you are at home or stranded in a carpark, our mobile car locksmith can help you out.

We understand that you don’t have control over where you are when you lose your keys. You may have run out to the shops to do your weekly grocery shop. Alternatively, you could be at the car park at work. Maybe you’re still at home.

The result is the same: you can’t exactly come to us - that’s why we come to you. No need to call a cab, book an Uber, organise a tow, or catch a bus.

You may be thinking “won’t that limit what services offered?”

And to that, we say absolutely not!

Our vans aren’t just a way of getting from job-to-job - think of it as a workshop on wheels, fitted out with all the technology and equipment you’ll find in a locksmith’s shop.

Thanks to this, we can:

  • Cut new car keys
  • Open all doors and boots with fob technology
  • Code transponders and immobilisers

And while we’re on the topic…

We can replace worn or broken locks

Keys aren’t the only things we do - our auto locksmiths can also help you with worn out or broken locks!

A few signs that your car locks are wearing out include:

  • Your automatic locking isn’t working
  • Your key is getting stuck
  • Your key won’t turn in the lock

If the key stops locking or unlocking your car completely then it isn’t worn out - it’s broken.

While you’ve got our experts with you - ask them to take a look at the lock and they can decide whether or not it needs to be repaired or replaced.

If your lock does need work, we’ll disassemble it and replace any worn-out pins and tumblers, or replace it.

All without needing to take your car to the dealership to get it fixed!
