Northsidecarkeys were the best value quote I could find, one of the other companies actually warned that for that price they might not know what they are doing, but the keys were perfectly fine. They even delivered the key on the weekend to my car. They made the painful ordeal of losing modern car keys a bit less painful.

Anonymous, Ascot

Thanks Jon, for a quick response and excellent service. We’ve been meaning to get a second key for our car for some time and it couldn’t have been any easier. And service with a smile!

A pleasure to meet John and to observe how thorough and efficient he is. I would recommend him to anyone who has car key problems.

David, Raceview

Literally the best car lock smith ever, i have had many auto locksmiths come to cut and program a key for my VW gti, but they all failed, northside car keys were not only $100 cheaper, but really professional as well. He did not quit at the challange and did the extra work for free to make it work. Thank you very much, would recommend him to anyone and everyone.


My daughter lost her car key unable to get home and go to work when I contacted Northside car keys I was impressed with the courteous friendly professional customer service by Jon. With an already packed day he was able to alleviate my stress and get my daughter back on the road. I would highly recommend this company to everyone. Thanks very much Jon!

Jason, Brendale

How to Replace Your Car Key If You Have Lost Your Spare

When you lose your car key, it can be easy to start to panic – especially if you know you don’t have a spare at home. Fortunately, there is a range of options available to you to help you regain access to your vehicle and get back on the road as quickly as possible.

If you are currently wondering ‘what to do if I lost my car key’, one option is to contact your insurance company. Some insurance plans include coverage for lost keys, so you may be able to recover access to your car this way. However it is important to remember that claiming on your insurance may affect your no claims bonus, and your particular plan may not include lost car keys – in which case going to your insurer may prove very expensive. You could also contact your local garage or dealership, or if you're looking for a quick and effective solution, you could get in touch with an auto locksmith.

By choosing to hire a professional mobile car locksmith, you are likely to be cutting out the middleman – as it is probable that your garage, insurance provider or franchised car dealership will only outsource the job anyway. But many locksmiths do not specialise in vehicle keys, so it is important to choose a professional with the right training, equipment and experience for the task, like our team here at Northside Car Keys.

How Long Does It Take to Replace a Car Key?

Whilst some of the options available to you when it comes to replacing your lost car key may leave you waiting for some time, there is no reason this needs to be the case when you get in touch with specialist auto locksmiths such as those you will find here at Northside Car Keys. Our phone lines are open 24/7, we can attend to emergency call outs the very same day in Brisbane, and we have the necessary equipment and expertise to provide solutions there and then.

How Much Does It Cost to Replace a Car Key?

Getting your car key replaced does not have to be as expensive as you may have previously presumed. Naturally, the particular replacement key price you pay will depend greatly on the model and brand of your vehicle. But when you come straight to the experienced auto locksmiths here at Northside you can be confident we’ll already have the official key you need in our extensive inventory, and we'll be able to conduct the required programming work on the spot, saving you money and time.

Why Choose the Professional Vehicle Locksmith?

Depending on your model of vehicle, you might be able to rely on any locksmith for automotive issues. If all you need is a key cut and a lock replaced, what's the harm, right? While they're all professionals, not all key cutters are car key cutters. A car lock is fairly different from other common locks, and a car isn't as straightforward as a door. That's why you can't use any locksmith for your car key.

You might get a job well done if you choose any locksmith for your lost car keys replacement. You might not. If you don't, however, you risk facing the same problem again later on. If your new key or lock stops working correctly while you're out and about, you now have another issue getting into your vehicle, and you have to call in professionals all over again. Worse still, you've already spent money on a solution that now needs solving itself. If you're lucky, your vehicle is simply back where it started the first time you needed an automobile locksmith. If you're unlucky, the first job done by locksmiths who don't specialise in vehicles might have left more damage that will cost more.

It's simply not worth the risk. If you can afford to search for a typical locksmith, you can just as quickly type in “automotive locksmith near me” instead.

Choose the Mobile Automotive Locksmith for a Quick and Convenient Response.

What makes Northside Car Keys the best locksmith for car keys? A big part of it is our mobility. When your key has been lost, broken, or stolen from you, you're likely not in the most convenient of places. You're probably far from home. It's likely also at night. You might be alone, and you're likely not conveniently within a block of your nearest locksmith. Even if you are, they might be closed at that hour anyway. If you call your nearest fixed location locksmiths to help, it will likely mean a longer wait as you have to wait to either go pick up the key or have it brought to you. Depending on where you're stranded, you might even need to tow your vehicle somewhere in the meantime, which is more stress and money. None of that is ideal, and all of it can be avoided if you choose us when you search “auto locksmiths near me.”

We operate out of our fully equipped vans which are on call 24/7 to help.
