What You Can Do If Your Car Key Breaks Off in the Ignition

Loading...
You finish packing the groceries into the trunk of your car, close the lid and slip behind the wheel to drive home. As you turn the key in the ignition, it promptly snaps off, leaving you holding the top of the key between your trembling fingers – now what? Your mind flashes, thinking about the ice-cream melting all over the floor. Relax, call a professional locksmith service, they have the team and the tools to help you get back on the road. Here’s everything you need to know about selecting and calling your local locksmith.

Search for Locksmith Services in Your Area

Pull out your phone and search for local locksmiths in your area. Take the top 10 results and scroll to find a licensed and bonded operation that’s closest to your location. It’s vital that you choose a professional, insured service. If the locksmith makes a mistake, then your insurance company won’t pay out for the damage.

Phone the Call-Center and Request a Quote

Call into the offices of your preferred locksmith and speak to a consultant about your issue. The locksmith will ask you for the make and model of your car, and your location. After reviewing your information, they’ll provide you with a quote over the phone for the call-out fee and key extraction from your ignition.

Wait for the Technician

If you’re happy with the quote, they’ll email it to you and dispatch a locksmith to your location before you hang up the phone. Your locksmith should also provide you with an estimated time of arrival on the site. Most professional services have cars on the road, and a locksmith could be around the block from you right now.

Locksmith Arrival, Assessment, and Extraction​

When the locksmith arrives, they should offer you a friendly smile and review the issue. Technicians carry specialized extraction tools that allow them to remove the broken key from your ignition in a few minutes. After removing the broken key, they’ll cut you a new key on site, and send you on your way. However, if you use a laser cut key, it may take a few minutes longer to cut you a copy on site.

Invoicing and Payment

After issuing you with your new key, they’ll send an invoice to your email address for payment. Most mobile locksmiths carry a card machine in their vehicle, and you can pay on the spot. They’ll also give you the option to pay via bank transfer when you get home. Locksmiths aren’t worried about immediate payment, because they have all of your vehicle and license details, and most companies provide their services in good faith. A professional locksmith should never allow you to pay in cash. It presents a significant risk to their safety and yours.

Wrapping Up – Check for Hidden Charges

Unfortunately, some fly-by-night locksmith services take advantage of your misfortune to charge hidden costs to your invoice. They know you’re desperate and willing to pay whatever they want to get back on the road. Always ensure you receive a quote beforehand, and review it for any hidden costs before you approve the work.

Called Shay when I was locked out of my car in a parking lot. I was panicking but as soon as I spoke with him, I could tell by his energy and tone of voice that he was a calm and skilled professional and I relaxed immediately knowing I was in good hands. I was able to get the door open before he arrived but I so appreciate knowing I have someone trustworthy to call in future emergencies.

He came during a time of dire emergency. He got my car unlocked. I hope I never make the mistake again, but if I do, I will call Locksmith Management. A lot of other locksmiths in my experience rip you off but his prices were pretty reasonable I think.

Anytime we need locks, or keys repaired or replaced, Locksmith Management is who we call! Shay comes when he says he will, and tries to gather as much information that he can before coming out, to ensure he's ready and prepared for the job. He even helped us over the phone with a simple issue that we were able to fix without needing him to physically come to us.

We needed a padlock cut off our exterior fuse box we didn't even realize existed until we lost power in the house. Izik was out there quickly , cut the lock off and we were able to to restore power within an hour. Usually no story that contains the phrase "and we had to call a locksmith " ends well, but this one did!

Izik was the best! I called multiple places, and none were as straight forward, and simple to deal with. He was fair, fast,professional, but also very kind. I would recommend him to anyone in need. I'd give him more than five stars if it were an option!
