Vehicle opening service (keys locked in car or boot).

We can perform non destructive entry to most vehicles. We do this via the locks – not bending a door and sticking a coat hanger in. Most modern vehicles can deadlock which will defeat the old fashioned coat hanger trick anyway. We open vehicles without resorting to force. If you’ve locked your keys in your car or the boot anywhere near Ross on Wye, Monmouth, Forest of Dean etc then give us a call.

It will be less hassle for an auto locksmith to open your vehicle than you smashing your own window and having to replace it. You can watch YouTube for how to open your car door with a tennis ball or a potato but you’ll still be locked out 2 hours later.

Ignition barrels and door locks

Vehicle ignition barrels and door locks can be difficult to turn at times. That can be due to a worn key or wear in the lock itself. Locks are sometimes easily replaced with one or 2 fasteners. Other times changing the ignition lock is more complex, requiring removal of the steering wheel and airbag etc.

Car keys and remotes

The price depends on the exact year, make, model of the vehicle and the type of remote you need. Send your VRN and ask for a quote is the best idea.

Modern cars have immobilisers. The keys have a transponder inside. If the immobiliser doesn’t detect the correct transponder chip the vehicle will not start. Whilst the metal part of the key can easily be copied (or the lock smashed off), the immo/transponder are more difficult to bypass.

A remote to suit a VW T5 Transporter is currently £85 for most pre 2012 models. Call or message for a quote for other makes/models. Citroen Relay, Peugeot Boxer remotes and keys can be replaced in genuine and aftermarket versions.

We can also perform vehicle diagnostics and provide you a printout of the results.

Should you bother getting a spare car key? That’s up to you. It will probably be much more expensive once you’ve lost all your keys. If you’re careful you might never need it (hopefully). Getting a spare cut and programmed can save you a lot of cost and drama. Some vehicles can be 5-10x more expensive to get a new key once you’ve lost all keys.
