Car Lockout Services in Hervey Bay and Maryborough

Souter Locksmiths provide fast and reliable car lockout services in Hervey Bay, Maryborough & surrounds to assist anyone who has lost their keys or locked themselves out of the vehicle. The automotive Locksmithing industry has drastically changed since 1980, when Souter Locksmiths was established in Hervey Bay/Maryborough, and even more so since Richard Souter started the trade in 1963. In that time, we can confidently say that we’ve always been able to open a car in all our years of operation. Whether you’ve locked your keys inside the car, or maybe you’ve scoured the Earth for your keys and just can’t seem to find them, we’ve all been there. Don’t resort to smashing the window; give us a call on 1800 241 111 and have one of our mobile locksmiths get you back on the road again, quicker and cheaper than forcing entry.

If losing your keys is a regular occurrence for you then you may also wish to consider our car key replacement/duplication service so that you always have a spare key handy. We can also record your keys at no charge to you. Our lockout service is also available as a 24/7 emergency service so if you’ve locked yourself out and need to regain entry outside of standard business hours, we can send someone out to assist you.

Lock Seizure Prevention:

We frequently find that on newer cars, people use their remote locking exclusively to get in and out of their car. What this causes over time is seizure of the locks as they bear harsh, variable conditions without lubrication. This is especially prevalent in cars that visit dustier environments. If you were to lose your car keys, having a seized lock makes it more difficult to gain entry.

While we’re certainly not recommending that you resort to the manual method of walking up to your car door and unlocking it every time you drive, here are some handy tips to keep your door locks from seizing:

  • Lubricate the lock by operating the key every couple of months
  • A range of lubricants are available and they can help in preventing rusting as well as lubricating the lock.
  • Do not lubricate electrical locks or ignitions with a lubricant other than graphite powder
  • Souters have a comprehensive range of remotes as well as the ability to repair and replace batteries, all done while you wait.
