What to do if you lose your car keys and don’t have a spare

Your frustration of getting a new spare car key can even turn into a panic, especially if you don’t know who the right person to call is!
We know how much you want to get back on the road fast and without any hassle. That’s why finding an affordable and reliable specialist to provide car key cutting in Melbourne is your number one goal right now.
Here are some things you might do when you lose your keys, some we recommend, others we don’t.
Do not attempt to pick your lock
Before you fall into the temptation of DIY unlocking, ask yourself if it is the safest solution possible without damaging your car. We bet you’re now thinking twice!
Unlocking your car using picking methods is not only foolish, but dangerous. You may have seen DIY videos of tips and tricks on how to unlock, and you may think that it’s easy to do, but not all DIY methods work for all types of cars.
There are two truths about these DIY videos that you should know:
- DIY unlocking normally only works for old lock mechanisms. Some DIY tricks might not work on newer cars as you need advanced technology to have it unlocked
- DIY unlocking, if not done right, can damage your car. Most of these DIY tricks can break your car’s internal mechanisms, ignition, and locks. That’s why the best thing to do is to confidently rely on an auto locksmith expert
Call your car dealer
You may have put hope in your car dealer who’s just a dial away from where you are. But did you know that even if they manufacture new keys, it can take several days for you to get the key? This means you’re still stuck without keys – and right now, you don’t even know how you’re going to get your car to your dealer, anyway!
Car dealers are often too busy thinking about sales quotas and attending to other client requirements to get you a new key.
Your ideal outcome is to rely on a Melbourne auto locksmith who can save you time and get you on the road sooner; no need to wait days for a replacement key from your dealer.
Call a tow truck service
If your biggest concern is getting a parking fine from not being able to move your car, towing service companies can help you out during lockout situations.
However, towing companies can’t solve your car key problem. Even if a tow truck operator can get you back in your car, they don’t offer specific car locksmith services, such as cutting car keys or reprogramming transponder car keys for you.
So if you think that a tow truck service can save your day, make sure you ask what they can do for you. You might consider organising a tow truck to bring your car to the dealership, however this can be both costly and time-consuming.
