What Your Auto Locksmith Will Need to Know for a Car Key Replacement

To ensure that we provide the right service to the right person, we will need to know a few details when booking in. We will need to know:

  • Year, make and model of the car
  • The vehicle identification (VIN) number if you have it
  • The key identification number, or key code, if you have it

Keep in mind that for car key replacement services you may also need to provide proof of ownership of the car, so it’s a good idea to have photo ID and any other relevant documentation with you.


Where Can I Find the VIN Number?

The VIN number can usually be found stamped onto the chassis of the vehicle but may also be on any official document for the car.

You can find the VIN number on:

  • The bottom of the windscreen
  • In the vehicle service book
  • On the V5 document
  • On the inside of the car door pillar


Where Can I Find the Key Identification Number?

The key identification number can usually be found in the car’s manual but if you don’t have this information, it’s not essential for car key replacement services.

20% of drivers do not keep a spare key. The growing price of replacing car keys could easily be related to a rising number of motorists who do not invest in a spare key. When most drivers learn how much replacement car keys cost, they are shocked. Car keys are very sophisticated electrical devices with a PCB, transponder chip, and battery that are extremely costly to replace. The increase in price could also be related to advancements in vehicle key technology and the introduction of proximity keyless start keys, which enable users to start the car without having to enter the key into the ignition.
