    What does a car locksmith do?

    A car locksmith, also known as an auto locksmith, is someone who specialises in car locks and keys. While most car locksmiths will also have training in locks and will be able to provide your general locksmith services, most of their business will come from helping people who have lost their car keys, locked them in their car, or need replacement car keys made for any other reason.
    Since people don’t always lose or damage their car keys when they’re at home or during business hours, many car locksmiths will provide help for you on the road, and may even provide a 24 hour emergency call out service.

    How do I get replacement car keys?

    When you need a replacement car key made, you have several options available to you.
    If your keys are lost or damaged, you can see if your car insurance will cover their replacement. Many won’t though, so it’s best not to rely on this option, and even if they do, it could affect your no claims bonus.
    Next, you could try going to your vehicle dealership where you bought the car from, but this can be a slow and more expensive method. Many will end up using a car locksmith anyway.

    If you’re having issues while you’re on the road, you can try a local garage or roadside breakdown assistance. They may be able to help, but in many cases they won’t have the correct equipment on hand, and it could be expensive.
    Finally, you have the (what we consider the best) option to go to a car locksmith. They’re experts at solving the exact problem that you’re having and can usually do the job faster and cheaper than anyone else.

    Why do I need replacement car keys?

    There are several reasons why you may want to get a replacement set of car keys made.
    The most obvious case is when you’ve either damaged or misplaced your keys, so that you can no longer lock or unlock your vehicle. When this happens, your only real alternative is to get a new set made.

    But it’s always handy to have a spare key made, especially if you’re sharing the use of the vehicle. It means less organising and trading keys back and forth.
    Additionally, if you lose one set of keys, you’ve always got a spare set so that you can still use your vehicle. Plus, getting a spare key made is usually a much simpler task if you’ve got the key that you want copied to hand

    How much is a replacement Car Key UK?

    This will depend on factors such as whether you have your key available to copy or if you need a new one made from scratch, what model of vehicle you have, and whether it’s an emergency job. On average though, you could be looking at around £300.

    What else does a car locksmith do?

    Other than providing replacement keys, car locksmiths can help you gain access to your car without a key and can repair or replace damaged locks. Plus, since most car locksmiths will probably have started out as a general locksmith, they should be able to provide general locksmith services too if you get locked out of your house.
