The Many Advantages Of A Spare Car Key

 

spare car keyAs we all know, life can surprise us everyday, and the surprises are not always nice. Everybody at some point experience the little unexpected everyday situations that can be frustrating and spoil your whole day. Being locked out of your own car is one of those situations. It usually happens when we really have no time to waste, rushing to an important meeting or having tons of errands to do before the end of the day. Does it ring a bell? Loosing car keys or even leaving them inside the car and locking yourself out can happen to anyone. And the easiest way to be prepared and deal with such situations quickly is to have a duplicate car key.

 

Duplicate Car Key Made In A Heartbeat

car key copies made on the spotA duplicate car key is the same as a car key copy, it works exactly the same as your primary key, so if you have one, you don’t need to replace or have your car locks re-keyed. A spare car key can save your time, money and give you some much needed peace of mind - you will always know that if anything happens, your spare car key is in a safe place and ready to be used to get you inside your vehicle.

 

If you don’t have a duplicate car key, you should get one before an emergency happens. To get your key duplicated, you need to present the primary key to the locksmith (it is recommended to have the copy made based on the original key). If your car keys are already lost or stolen than what you need is a new key cut from code of your lock. However, this is a completely different service and usually it is more expensive than getting a spare car key while still in possession of a working key.

 

Any type of car key can be duplicated, including smart keys and transponder keys. In case of the latter, the locksmith will not only have to produce the physical copy of the key, but will also need to program the key or transponder chip. Otherwise, the transponder or smart key copy will not start your car. Be sure to check if the spare car key works properly after you receive it, so you can rely on it later.

 

 

When A Spare Car Key Can Save Your Day

spare car keys made quickly and professionallyYou probably use your car keys everyday, maybe even a couple times a day. A natural thing is that the key simply wears off and can break. If that happens, a spare key is a real life (time and money) saver. Trying to open or start the car with a damaged key can cause more harm to the locking system and can be dangerous, so it is highly recommended to either use the spare key or call a car locksmith to cut a new one for you.

 

A far more distressing situation than a damaged car key is when it is lost or gets stolen. Very often, you can’t be sure whether you left the key somewhere on the run or if somebody stole it, which is a very stressful situation. However, with a spare car key, you can at least save some time and nerves and instead of figuring out how to enter your car, you can just call home and have someone bring you the spare car key. When you get the key and start your car, you might want to drive to the nearest police station and report missing car keys situation. And if the original key is not found within 24 hours, you should consider changing your locks to prevent potential theft of the vehicle.

 

However silly it may seem, another common reason for a car lockout is leaving the key inside the car and shutting the door. Imagine, you can see the keys lying on the seat, or you know they are inside the trunk, but you cannot grab it. Now imagine how frustrating it can be when you don’t have a spare key and you have to call a locksmith to open the car for you. All the time and money wasted only because you don’t have a copy of your car key. Getting a duplicate is actually less expensive than either having a new key cut from the lock or rekeying the car locks. So it really pays off to think beforehand and get a car key duplicate. After all, it is better to be safe than sorry.
