What do auto locksmith services include?

When you book an auto locksmith through Airtasker, you can expect to work with someone who can help you with matters related to your car keys and locks. So before you panic over locking your keys in the boot, a broken key fob, or a key that’s stuck in the ignition, request a nearby car key locksmith through our platform. 

The following is a list of what you can typically expect an auto locksmith to cover:

Unlocking a car without the keys

If you’ve accidentally locked your keys in your car or misplaced them, a Tasker will use a variety of methods to open your car without damaging it. These include using a slim jim, wedges, Japanese Tool, or Auto Buster. 

If the keys are in the trunk, getting your keys back may be as simple as using the manual boot release or techniques that can temporarily override your trunk’s security (at least, long enough for you to get the keys). 

Key duplication or replacement

A local auto locksmith usually offers these services as well. When you request key duplication, they’ll use an existing key (preferably the original) and cut a duplicate. If you’re using a transponder key or smart key, this step may be followed by a bit of programming. These keys are designed to “respond” to the technology in your car.  

As for the key replacement, this may take a bit longer, depending on the type of car and car key you have. 

Fob replacement & transponder programming

Have you accidentally damaged your key fob or transponder key? Want to replace it to prevent unauthorized access? An auto locksmith can help. When you request key fob replacement through our platform, the car key locksmith will typically replace the fob, remove existing fobs from the car’s computer, and program your new fob so that it is the only one that your vehicle will respond to.  

Transponder programming is similar in the sense that your auto locksmith will do a bit of programming after cutting the new key. You can also request the Tasker to disable all existing transponder keys so that only the new key will work. 

Extracting snapped keys

Suppose your car key gets stuck in a lock or snaps off unexpectedly while in the ignition switch; an auto locksmith can help. They may use special extraction tools and lubricant to retrieve the broken key. After this, you can request a new key or even ask the locksmith to fox the wonky lock or ignition.

Ignition repair

If your keys open the doors but won’t start the vehicle, it may be time to consult an auto locksmith. They may replace the ignition lock, the ignition lock cylinder, or the ignition switch. Or, you can opt to have them rekey your ignition, which can be easier than replacing the entire ignition cylinder (or using a separate key for your doors or starting your car).  

If these fixes still don’t work, consider contacting a mobile mechanic or car service specialist near you.

Hello, I have a W211 Mercedes Benz E270 CDI (2004), I believe the keys may be locked in the boot, however possibly not and I do not have a second key. What would you charge for... A. Gaining Entry? B. Cutting and programming a key/fob? Currently the car is parked in front of my fathers drive not allowing him to get his vehicle so time is of the essence, when would you be able to attend? As such I will keep contacting companies until I receive an acceptable response / arrangement, just like to be honest. Thanks so much, call or email ok...
