Car Locksmith in North Lakes to the Rescue

Having a car that doesn’t work can be very frustrating and usually happens at an inconvenient time. If it’s due to losing your keys rather than a vehicle breakdown, that can be even more frustrating because you tend to blame yourself for losing them. Happily, there is a reasonable solution because at Northside Car Keys we provide the quickest and cheapest car key replacement in North Lakes.

The best way to guarantee the least cost and inconvenience is to ensure you always have a spare key that’s easy to access. Before you lose a key, be sure to get spare car keys cut in North Lakes as soon as possible so you’re not caught out.

Complex Modern Replacement Car Keys in North Lakes

Car keys come as different types:

  • traditional keys that are supplied for older cars and need to be inserted and turned in door locks and ignitions to operate.
  • Remote keys that have buttons to unlock and lock doors remotely but still need to be inserted and turned to start the car.
  • proximity keys that simply need to be near to unlock doors automatically and to allow cars to be started by the push of a button.

Traditional keys are the simplest and cheapest to replace with most locksmiths being capable of cutting a duplicate from an original. Modern keys are much more complex and so cost more to replace, especially if you don’t have a spare to copy — up to $5,000 for certain makes and models. They also require the services of an auto locksmith in North Lakes.

Even traditional keys can be difficult and expensive to replace if the lock is in poor condition. Modern cars may have multiple computers fitted and are very reliant on technology. This extends to the car’s key, which has a transponder chip with a code that matches to one of the computers.

If a key is lost or unusable, a new one has to be cut and programmed to the internal code so it will unlock and mobilise the car. If both keys are lost, the computer needs to be completely reprogrammed so it matches the code of the replacement car keys. This all adds to the cost and inconvenience, and it’s not something that any locksmith can do.

Specialist Car Locksmith in North Lakes

Fortunately, at Northside Car Keys, we have the skill, knowledge and equipment to get any car back on the road, whatever the make and model, for any type of key and even if both keys are lost. We can’t take shortcuts because we’re dealing with the security and reliability of the vehicle. But we will do the job as quickly, efficiently and inexpensively as possible so you’re back on the road without too much delay.

We’ll quickly come to you, which is essential if you can’t move the car. You can be assured that we do the job ourselves rather than having to involve a third party, as a dealer would. That’s why we’ll do (complete) the job quicker and cheaper than a dealer every time.

We can’t compete on pricing with a general locksmith, therefore we don’t try. That’s because we provide specialized services that they can’t, along with all of the required equipment, supplies, and trained personnel. So, if your car won’t start because you don’t have any trustworthy keys, don’t waste time hunting for a cheap solution. Come to us for a spare car key cut in North Lakes, and we’ll take care of you promptly and effectively. Read Less

Thanks so much Jon for your reliable service. I was beyond stressed losing both my keys; I thought I was going to be in a world of pain dealing with the Hyundai dealership - not to mention the price they had quoted me. 10/10 service provided and I will happily recommend you to friends and family, an absolute pleasure to deal with

Joshua Curtis

Jon has given an excellent service , within 10 minutes he fixed the issue and he has the right skills and tool to diagnose the issue and fix it.


I had bought a VS ute and due to a series of unfortunate events found myself locked out. Called Jon and he was super nice and professional also very prompt. He easily supplied me with a brand new key and delivered it to me with no fuss at all. Would definately recommend this company to anyone and will use them next time.
Its so refreshing to find good old fashioned service in a rush rush world. 10/10 A+++

Chris, Redcliff

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!

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!


Fantastic from the get go. Great prompt response and service. Will definitely use again and recommend.

Just wanted to thank Jonathon and Northside Car Keys for your fast work and professionalism! A late mid week phone call to you guys and by the next morning, you were here and the job done!! You were easy to deal with and I wouldn't hesitate in referring you or using your company again.

Jason, Brendale

Thank you so much for the fast and friendly service. It was great to be able to get someone to help in such a short amount of time. Certainly appreciated as I was stranded, also 8.5months pregnant which is not a perfect time to get locked out of your car! Thanks again
