Replacement keys and key programming for your German car

Sales Galmier - Wednesday, December 02, 2020

Never underestimate what an auto locksmith in Melbourne can do for you - we can unlock and open just about any type of car you can think of and get you back on the road without drama.

And that includes German brands too.

A lot of people assume because of their price point and German cars’ reputation for quality engineering that these locks are a lot harder to open, and that in the event of a lockout, they’ll need to resort to calling the dealership.

That’s simply wrong!

Yes, German cars operate differently, use different petrol, and tend to be more expensive - that having been said, the actual locks themselves are pretty similar!

BMW, Audi, Mercedes, Volkswagen - whichever one of these you drive, our auto locksmiths in Melbourne will be able to open them on the spot and get you back on the road!

Unlocking German cars: can a car locksmith in Melbourne do it for you?

Absolutely! There’s no need to book in with the dealership - in most cases, unlocking a German car brand is just as easy as any other marque!

If you’ve locked yourself out, an automotive locksmith in Melbourne can get you back in, no matter what you drive.

And we offer this service to all types of car brands, including German ones.

How long does it take a dealership to deal with the issue?

For a lot of people, the first port of call when any issues arise - including key, lock and ignition problems - is their car dealership.

They assume that since they deal with your car brand on a daily basis, they’re the best person to call.

There’s just a couple of problems with that.

Firstly, it slows things down. Your dealer probably has a whole bunch of cars in their workshop at any given time, and as any motorist knows, it can be an entire day before they get around to looking at your vehicle.

Secondly, there’s the cost - dealerships make most of their profits through services.

And finally, they aren’t the only people who have experience working with German cars - our auto locksmiths do as well!

Since we come to you, we’re able to cut out a lot of waiting time. Not only that, but our specialisation means that we can fix these issues much faster than a car dealership can.

Unlocking German cars: busting the most common myths

There's always a price to pay when you lock yourself out, both in time and money. For a lot of people however, they assume that the cost of doing so for new German car keys is going to be way higher than other cars!

Many people assume that German car keys and locks will take longer to work with, and that this will drive up the labour costs that go into your locksmith’s quote.

First off, they really aren’t any more costly - in fact, an experienced auto locksmith can get the job done in almost the exact length of time.

Not only that, but our auto locksmiths in Melbourne is so good at what they do that the difference between unlocking a Mercedes-Benz and a Toyota is pretty much non-existent!
