Spare Car Keys
Having a spare key on hand in case of an emergency is the best way to protect yourself against a lockout situation. Here at Herts and London Car Keys, we can provide spare keys cut and programmed for any make or model of vehicle along with a guarantee to offer peace of mind.
Reasons to get a spare key cut
If you have bought a second-hand car, either from a dealer or a private sale, often there is only one key with the vehicle. Most of the time this isn’t a problem but when a situation arises where you cannot get into your vehicle a spare key could mean the difference between gaining entry or paying an auto locksmith to get you into your vehicle.
Spare keys also take the strain out of sharing a car, meaning both drivers can have their own key. No more arguing over where the key was last!
The value of a second hand car can be improved by having a spare key, often this offsets the cost of having a spare cut in the first place.
