Once of the most frequent reasons Cheshire Auto Locksmiths get called out is Car lock out. It can be quite stressful when you can see your keys in the ignition and all the car doors are locked. At anytime this cause slight panic, however if your home or nearby and you have a spare this can be easily resolved. However, most times and in our experience spare keys are nowhere to be seen.

There are a few ways in which you can gain access to your vehicle however more often than not if you aren’t trained this will cause unwanted damage to your vehicle. So we would always recommend calling in the professionals… Cheshire Auto Locksmiths.

 

Frequently asked questions include:

How much will it cost? Is it not cheaper than breaking the window?

This is a question asked over the phone quite a lot. Obviously the cost of replacing glass depends on the make and model of your vehicle, however the replacement glass will not be as quick as getting a new key cut. Also we have seen accidental and additional damage done by trying to gain access. So why not leave it to the professionals and give us a call?

Can I use a coat hanger like in the films?

Yes indeed on some vehicles you can however as previously mentioned this can cause more damage than needed.
