Top tips to find your lost car keys
Why is it always that we usually end up losing the things that we try our best not to lose? Car keys are a classic example. Frustratingly, they end up missing more often than we’d like to admit.
If you find yourself in this annoying situation, take a deep breath. Follow our top tips below to help you find your lost car keys, pronto:
Kick off the search quickly
Although it’s easier said than done, try not to panic. Kick off your search immediately for the best chance to recover your lost car keys. Search the spot where you usually leave them. Check again in places you’ve looked previously, including the most obvious spots.
Tidy up and move things around
If you’ve covered all the spots you’ve been since you last saw your car keys and still haven’t found them, they may have gotten lost in a spot of clutter somewhere. Tidy up any messy areas and check to see whether your keys may have slipped inside or underneath any furniture.
Go over your day and retrace your steps
If you still haven’t located your keys, take the time to rack your brain and remember where you were since you saw them. Start to retrace your steps to when you last saw your keys and look everywhere that you physically were on that day. Take a moment to sit and think it through if you need to – it sometimes takes a little while to uncover a memory. You never know – you might have missed the sight of them somewhere obvious in your frenzied state!
Get a set of replacement car keys cut
If you don’t manage to find your car keys, try not to fret. Reach out to a local locksmith and get a new set of car keys cut. We’d recommend getting a spare set made in case you happen to misplace them again and need to use your car quite quickly.
Store your new replacement car keys in a safe place and get in the habit of always leaving them in the same spot.
