Frequently Asked Questions
1. How long does it take to remove locking wheel nuts?
On average we can remove all four locking wheel nuts in under 15 minutes, as long as they are not highly over tightened or badly damaged, as this may sometimes add to the time taken to remove the locking nuts.
2. What area do you cover for your mobile service?
We are always expanding our coverage and currently cover most parts of the UK, so give us a call and we will let you know if we can attend your specific area.
3. My local garage said they can try to remove them, why should I choose you?
Local garages do not have our custom made tools to safely remove your locking wheel nuts without causing damage. We go out to customers on a daily basis where a local garage or tyre shop has caused damage to their wheel (alloy) and also the locking wheel nut, and still FAILED to remove the locking wheel nut. The cost to repair the damaged wheel (alloy) alone will cost more than our service, and the garage will often fail to remove the problematic locking wheel nut. We Guarantee removal without any damage and have a 100% success rate for over 10 years! So why would you risk using anyone else?
4. Someone else has been out to me and damaged my locking wheel nuts, can you still remove them?
Yes, we guarantee to remove ANY locking wheel nut or locking wheel bolt from ANY vehicle. Even if someone else has attended and failed to remove them, we will still guarantee removal. There may be additional costs for the added time it may take us, but we will still get them off. Guaranteed!
5. My key has snapped inside my locking wheel nut, can you still help?
Yes, we guarantee to remove ANY locking wheel nut or locking wheel bolt from ANY vehicle. We can remove them even if a key is snapped inside them or any other damage.
6. I have watched someone remove a locking wheel nut online, why should I use your service?
The techniques you see online will fail 99% of the time. Most modern locking wheel nuts now consist of a spinning outer collar, or other advanced security feature, this makes DIY removals impossible. We do not recommend you attempt to remove the locking wheel nut yourself as it will cause more damage to the nut and possibly the wheel (alloy) making the cost of removal more expensive. We can however also remove stuck sockets from locking wheel nuts for people who watch too much YouTube.
7. I have spoken to another locking wheel nut expert who states he can remove them for me, why should I choose you?
Here at Locking Wheel Nut Removal, we can remove any locking wheel nut from any vehicle without causing any damage to your wheels. As we have seen countless times before, other companies offering similar services will cause damage and fail to remove the locking wheel nut, resulting in additional costs for you to pay and may even still charge you for their failed attempt. Remember it is always cheaper to do the job right the first time. So why would you choose anyone else?
8. Do I need to be present at the vehicle, while you remove the locking wheel nuts?
No, we go out to customers on a daily basis where they are busy doing other things. We can remove your locking wheel nuts for you without you being present, so you can get on with the more important things in life, while we handle the rest.

We can successfully remove your snapped Jaguar wheel nuts in minutes without causing any unnecessary damage to your expensive alloys.

No, this is not necessary. You are more than welcome to bring your own locking wheel nuts, however, we stock a wide range of genuine locking wheel nuts and standard wheel nuts, and our price is usually cheaper than the dealership due to us buying them in bulk.
