Before going through what you can do when you lose a key, let's review some ways that may help to prevent such situation. It is very common for people to keep a spare key of your vehicle or home in your work place or home (if a vehicle's key). The second option is giving a spare key to a neighbor or a member in the family which could be a spouse, and adult child or a close relative.
When all else fails and you happen to lose the keys to your vehicle and you have no spare, here is some things you can do in that situation. Once you realize you misplaced your keys, you can start by trying to go over what you did prior to you realizing you lost the keys. Who knows, you might have dropped them somewhere nearby. If you parked in a paid parking lot, it might be worth it to check with the valet in case someone may have found the keys. Last but not least, if a spare is not available the only two options of getting a new key is at the dealership or a professional locksmith. A professional locksmith might be a better solution since they will normally come to you and significantly cheaper than the dealer in addition to the fact you won't have to get your car towed anywhere.

Many people do not realize, but when moving into a new place, there is no tell of how many copies of keys the previous residents of the property made. Even though as part of the sale agreement all keys are to be submitted, there is no way to tell how many keys are actually still in the possession of the current owner and hoe many of them he lend to other people allowing access to the property such as relatives, service providers and more. This can be a serious safety and security risk.
It has been researched and found that many residential property break-ins were done by people who were familiar or was in contact with the previous property owner. Because of that, it is important to deal with the property locks and take the time to change the locks before fully completing the move. In addition, if not already equipped, it is recommended to add a deadbolt lock to all doors surrounding the place for extra security.
