Top Reasons To Get a Spare Key.

You may find yourself in a situation where you have lots of important places to be. And then.. Boom!… you lost your keys. Trust me, I have seen this many times and I am here to help if that is the case. However, we want to save our customer’s time and money as best as we can. Being proactive is the best way to do this. Having a spare key will will protect you.
  • The risk of losing your last key: Losing your last key can be very scary and frustrating for people. You may have an important business meeting to get to or need to pick your kids up from soccer practice. Having a spare key can make sure nothing interferes with your day-to-day life and important commitments.

  • Getting locked out of your car: Imagine you are on your way to a party and you are bringing all the beer. You are walking back to your car, beer in hand, and realize you can’t find your keys. All of the sudden, something catches your eye. There they are. Your keys. Just sitting on the passenger seat of your car. Everyone at the party is mad because you’re thirty minutes away and locked out, with the booze. If you just had a spare, you could be there in no time.

  • Cost: As a locksmith, I always want to give the best possible price. However, when it comes to a situation where all keys are lost there are more factors than just purchasing a new key. In order to cut the key properly, we must purchase a key code specific to your VIN number. This can be costly. It is much cheaper for you and I to make a duplicate key.

  • Safety: There are so many times I get calls of people locked out in the middle of the night. As a 24 hour emergency locksmith, I am quick to get out there and help because I know how scary that situation can be. Unfortunately, not all locksmiths have that same mentality. You may find yourself waiting upwards of an hour for a locksmith to come to your location or they will upcharge for a late call. It is much easier, and safer to have a spare key on hand.

  • Hide-A-Key: I know what you’re thinking. If I lost my key, how the heck am I going to get my hands on a spare? I have one answer for you, “Hide-A-Key”. Growing up I remember calling my dad because I lost the keys to his car. After being reprimanded and teaching me a good lesson on responsibility, he told me to look under the car. I won’t say much more, for fear of giving away my secrets. Contact us or Google for further information.
