Lost Car Key Replacement

There is nothing more infuriating than losing your car keys. That sickening feeling you get when you know you should be dashing out the door to go to work or pick up the kids, and you just can’t find the keys.

Insurance claims data has shown that in many cases car keys are stolen at night while owners are asleep or even during daylight hours by opportunist thieves gaining access to your house whilst you are elsewhere, in the garden for example.  

Even worse is when you are already away from home and you look in your bag or search your pockets and realise that yes, the keys are lost.

And let’s face it; we all know that you should have a spare key somewhere easily accessible but realistically how many of us actually do that? In some cases, for example, if you’ve bought a second-hand car you may not have a spare key in the first place.

So, what to do?

Don’t Panic!

Easier said than done, but the first thing to do is stay calm and re-search everywhere you have just looked, as well as looking in places where you’re absolutely certain the car keys wouldn’t be. Lost items are often to be found in the oddest places.

If the keys are definitely lost, the next thing is to make a note of your vehicle’s identification details:

  • Make, model and year of your car or the registration number
  • If you can, make a note of the vehicle’s VIN number – this is often found at the bottom of the windscreen or just inside the door

In some cases, the VIN can be used to make a car key when you don’t have the original key or a spare as it will match a key code registered to the vehicle.
