5 things our clients usually don't realise a car locksmith can do

Sales Galmier - Tuesday, October 08, 2019

Did you know? Your auto locksmith in Melbourne does much more than just unlock doors!

There’s a very good reason that the training process to become a locksmith is so lengthy and requires many different certifications and courses.

Simply put, just because we’re mobile doesn’t mean that we’re any less qualified than the locksmith who works out of their very own storefront!

An automotive locksmith in Melbourne does it all, including some lesser-known services and skills such as...

Removing car keys that are stuck in the ignition

Many assume that removing stuck car keys is a matter of how much force you apply when yanking. There can’t be that much of a technique to it, can there?

If you ask us however, removing stuck keys is akin to performing surgery. It takes a considerable amount of delicacy and finesse to avoid causing avoidable damage to your lock or ignition chamber!

In fact, in many cases where the key is extra stubborn, the only way to dislodge it may be to partially dismantle your lock or ignition. The key may steadfastly refuse to budge, or the issue may be with the pins and tumbler inside.

The only way to fix them? To dismantle the lock or ignition.

What you may not have known is that our automotive locksmith in Melbourne can do this on the spot!

Many assume that thanks to our mobile nature, we either don’t have the skillset or equipment to do so. This is patently false.

So if you’re having trouble with a stuck key, don’t hesitate to call an auto locksmith!


Home locksmith services

While Galmier’s auto locksmiths may specialise in helping motorists, the truth is that we can do much, much more than that!

In addition to automotive locksmithing services, our team also provides a wide range of commercial and residential locksmithing services such as:

Some locksmiths focus solely on one or the other. Not us.

On top of keeping your car secure, our auto locksmiths in Melbourne can also keep your home and business safe too.

Just as with your car, our team endeavours to leave your home or business just as clean and even safer than when we found it!

 

Replaces broken car key… without a copy of the original!

Cutting a spare key is easy when we have a copy of the original to work off.

But what if we’re working blind?

Many motorists assume that if there’s no key for reference, then the only option is to go to the dealership.

Here’s a little known fact: your auto locksmith doesn’t need an original to make a new key. Not only can we do it on-the-spot, but we’ll also do it without a copy of the original to work off!

We use the skills that we have learnt during our apprenticeship to generate a key for your car, without a trip to the dealership.

And while we’re there, we can also program the immobiliser and remote part of the key too!

 

We can help owners of most car brands

It’s a given that your auto locksmith in Melbourne will be able to help owners of common car brands like Toyotas or Holdens.

But what about rarer makes?

Many assume that an automotive locksmith won’t be much use for their vehicle. “It’s a rare model” they think, “so the locksmith has probably never worked on one before”.

We’re here to tell you that’s completely false!

The fact of the matter is that the principles behind your car keys, locks and ignition chambers are similar across most brands and manufacturers.

As such, our Melbourne auto locksmiths can unlock and cut car keys for various car brands including:

 

Auto locksmithing for commercial clients
