How many times have you lost your car keys?
16 million motorists regularly misplace their car keys each year. Have you been one of them? It’s so easy to lose your car keys, days are hectic, and there is lots to think about during the day.
If you’ve lost your car keys, it’s worth checking the common areas we mention below before concluding that they’re lost for good, as UK drivers spend £180 million replacing lost car keys!
Let’s help you find those lost keys.
Where are my car keys?
Okay, we know what you’re thinking! But, seriously, many lost keys are found in the car.
When getting in and out of the car, we’re usually in quite a rush — carrying shopping in, rallying the kids to school, or rushing to get home. It’s a whirlwind.
So, if you’re one of the many that have locked your car keys in the car, you will need a gain entry service. 3D Autokeys have a team of highly-skilled technicians experienced in securely gaining vehicle access whilst causing no damage.
Please, we urge you never to attempt to access your car yourself; read here to see the disastrous effects.
There is always the chance that you dropped your car keys near your vehicle or left them on the car roof; it’s best to retrace your steps back to the house, just in case you dropped them along the way.
Bags & Pockets
This one isn’t just for women! We all know the guy with an overflowing gym bag.
It’s super easy to search your bag for your car keys and completely forget to check the little zipper pocket. Make sure you double-check all pockets or try tipping your bag onto a surface.
Also, check the pockets of trousers, jackets and coats you use often.
Bathroom & Kitchen
Where is the first place you go when you get home? Is it the kitchen or bathroom?
Your car keys could be right in front of you, on the kitchen counter or next to the sink in the bathroom.
Still can’t find your car keys ?
First, don’t panic. If you checked off all the places mentioned above, you’re in the right place. The situation can be quickly resolved with the help of an auto locksmith. We can easily replace your car keys, often on that day!
