If you are unexpectedly locked out of your car or van and cannot gain entry because your key is broken (or has been stolen), you’ve lost your keys, locked them inside your vehicle or there is a problem with the central locking system (possibly due to immobiliser problems), it can be an incredibly frustrating experience, especially if you have somewhere you need to be urgently.

To get back on the road as soon as possible, you’ll need an expert to help you straight away – luckily, Key Assist can help.

Specialist auto locksmiths

Key Assist is able to contact a range of approved car locksmiths all across the UK, so they can find the closest one to your local area, meaning that you won’t have to wait long to get help.

They advise on getting a trained and experienced auto locksmith rather than attempting to solve the problem yourself, as this could cause more damage and will incur more costs.

A specialist locksmith has the knowledge, experience, time and equipment needed to determine what the problem with your lock or key is and to get it sorted straightaway (no matter what type of vehicle you have) – unlike a car dealership or breakdown service.

What services do they offer?

Whatever the situation, Key Assist’s approved emergency locksmiths can help you with the following services:

  • Gain access to your vehicle if you have locked the keys inside, lost them or had your keys stolen
  • Supply replacement keys (no need for original key)
  • Reprogram new keys and fobs (car key programming)
  • Repair a faulty immobiliser

Building locks

If you are having problems gaining access to your home, office or other type of building, Key Assist can help with this, too.

Whether the lock seems to be damaged or you’ve locked yourself out, Key Assist can locate a locksmith near you that can repair any type of lock or key as soon as possible (e.g. cylinder rim/yale, UPVC, mortice locks or a more modern type of lock that may operate via a digital mechanism).

Perhaps you’ve recently moved into a new house and you want to change the locks or you want to upgrade the ones you currently have for security reasons, a specialist locksmith can supply brand-new, high-security locks and keys.
