Mobile locking wheel nut removal

Are your locking wheel nuts damaged beyond repair? Perhaps you’ve lost your locking wheel nut key? Whatever the issue, our mobile locking wheel nut removal service is just a phone call away.

What is a locking wheel nut?

Locking wheel nuts, lug nuts, or alloy wheel nuts as they are also known, keep your wheels safely secured to your car. To remove a locking wheel nut, you need a special key – a metal, circular tool with a hexagonal indent at one end.


If you lose this key, or your wheel nut is missing or damaged, you will need to seek the expertise of a tyre technician. That’s where we can help. Our professionals can quickly remove any type of locking nut from your vehicle without causing damage to your wheels. Call 0333 016 6550 to take advantage of our mobile locking wheel nut removal service.

Where is the locking wheel nut key?

In order to change or repair your tyres, you will first need to find your locking wheel nut key. If you’re unsure where it is, try checking in the following places:

  • In the glove box
  • In the side compartments of the boot
  • Under the boot carpet
  • In the seat pockets
  • Under the driver or passenger seat

What does our mobile locking wheel nut service include?

Lost your locking wheel nut key? Locking wheel nut damaged? Fear not.

For £40 we can remove up to 4 locking wheel nuts as part of our tyre repair or replacement service. Unlike many of the locking nut removal kits sold online, we use a specialist tool that gets the job done without causing damage to your alloys.

Simply type your car registration and postcode into our tyre search tool and choose your replacement tyres. We’ll then fit them.

In instances where we remove damaged or overtightened wheel nuts, it’s possible that we are unable to refit them. We therefore advise that you purchase new vehicle-manufacturer-approved wheel nuts prior to our arrival (we always recommend purchasing these directly from the vehicle manufacturer).

No trips to the garage. No need to cancel your plans. No need to wait. Call us on 0333 016 6550 and one of our tyre technicians will come to your home, work, or anywhere in between.

What happens if a locking wheel nut can’t be removed?

In most cases, a wheel nut can be comfortably removed. However, on the rare occasion that a wheel nut has become badly corroded or damaged beyond repair, the vehicle may need to be referred to have the locking nuts drilled out.
In such cases, you may be charged a standard call out fee of £40 to cover our basic costs, plus the cost of each failed insert we used in the tool.
