Do Not Panic!

  • Vehicles nowadays are all equipped with an immobiliser meaning your car won’t start without the correct key.

What you need to do if your keys have been Stolen

It can be a frustrating time if your keys have been stolen. But relax, we’ve got some tips for you to get your car secure and ready for us to come to help you get back on your way.

Or if the vehicle is safe, secure and you’re in no rush…

Secure the vehicle

For a start, the best thing you can do is move the car to a secure location if you have a spare key. If there is no safe location or you do not have a spare key, you can open the bonnet and remove some fuses to cut power to some essential features. This means that the car cannot be driven away. *If you’re confident enough!

If you do not have a spare key on hand it is best to be with the vehicle until you have an auto locksmith on hand to help and make to car safe. 

Contact the police and your insurers

Secondly, you should contact both the police and your insurance company. 

Contacting the police gives you a crime reference number which will be needed if you need to claim with your insurance company. Sometimes the police can get the keys and have them returned to you but this is not always the case. 

Contacting your insurance company is the next step. Some insurance policies have key cover which means they may contribute towards the cost of service from an auto locksmith.
