What to do if your Car or House Keys get Lost or Stolen

Updated: November 2, 2018

Losing your car or house keys can be very stressful.  If you can’t find them, then there are things you can do to regain access to your home or car.  In this post we’ll discuss what you should do when you lose your house or car keys, or if they get stolen.  Losing a house key while at home is not a big deal.  But if you live alone and are out, no one will be home to let you in.  Get a locksmith to open your doors for you.  Most locksmiths provide 24-hour emergency services, but none are as responsive or professional as King Safe & Lock.  We’ll be there to let you in shortly after you call.  You should also have your locksmith change your locks during the same service call.  Even if you live with other people and have access to a copy of your home key, there is still that extra copy floating around in someone else’s hands.  Don’t take any chances, change your locks immediately and make sure your entire family has a new copy.  Losing the keys to your car may be a little trickier.  You have two options for getting a new key for your car.  If you tow your car to a dealership, then they will be able to produce a new key that fits your car.  Again, this leaves a working copy of the key unaccounted for and is very unsafe (especially if you know for sure that your keys were stolen).  To be safe, you should also get the door locks and starter key changed.  While this option works, it could cost you hundreds of dollars after marked-up dealership services and towing fees.  Having a locksmith do it for you can be much cheaper.  King Safe & Lock specializes in both car and home lock services and can even produce specialized transponder keys for your newer model car.  Our top-notch 24-hour emergency lockout service will get you back in your homes in no time flat.  Visit our website or call us today for information on any of our services.
