Leicester, UK -- (ReleaseWire) -- 07/09/2014 -- Owners of the BMW X5, the Audi S4, and the Ford Transit Van need to take care when it comes to the vehicle keys as these are three of the six most commonly stolen cars in the UK. The Porsche 911, the Mercedes Benz SL, and the Range Rover Sport and Evoque round out the list, a list compiled by Motor Heads. Anyone who owns one of these vehicles needs to take extra precautionary measures to safeguard their vehicles and Leicester Locksmith Today becomes of great help in protecting the vehicles from theft.
"Car alarms help to protect a vehicle, but only when someone is around to hear the alarm. Those living out in the country or on an isolated estate may take a week long holiday only to return home and find their car is missing and has been for some time. Although studies show alarm systems deter thieves, they only go so far in ensuring the safety of the vehicle," Steven Maxwell of Leicester Locksmith Today declares.
Contact an auto locksmith Leicester today to learn of other ways to safeguard a vehicle. The locksmith assesses the car to determine which measures offer the best protection, which may include rekeying the vehicle or upgrading the keyless start feature. The solutions offered by the locksmith vary based on many factors, such as where the vehicle is typically garaged.
"One must also hire a locksmith in Leicester to obtain spare keys and remotes when they choose to no longer allow another to have access to the vehicle. Although one may ask for the vehicle keys back, there's no way of guaranteeing the other person didn't have a spare made or that they didn't purchase a replacement remote. When it comes to one's vehicle, it's always better to be safe than sorry," Maxwell continues.
Of course, a locksmith assists those in need of routine lock needs, such as when one loses a vehicle key or has it stolen, when a broken key needs to be repaired or replaced, or when one accidentally locks the keys in the vehicle. In addition, locksmiths assist those who have a key which snapped off in the lock or ignition or when one needs a spare key or remote for their car.
