At Horsham Locksmiths, we know how important spare car keys are. We have a lot of experience helping customers after they’ve lost their only car key or locked themselves out of their vehicle. If they had a spare key, these problems could be solved easily. So, read on to find out why having an extra key is essential for every car owner.

They prevent accidental lockouts

Whether you’ve lost your keys or locked them inside your car, having a spare key means you won’t be left locked out for a long period of time. By having a spare car key, you can quickly regain entry to your vehicle without needing to call and use the services of an auto locksmith. It also means that if you’ve lost your primary key, you still have another key that can quickly and easily be copied by an auto locksmith.

They can save you money

Getting a spare made by an auto locksmith when you already have at least one working key is cheaper than if you have no working keys. The job becomes more expensive when all keys are lost because our locksmiths need to pick your door lock open to gain access to the vehicle and learn what the key code is in order to make a new key. With our expertise and dedication to customer satisfaction, we aim to provide cost-effective solutions that offer peace of mind and long-term value.

Spare car keys are easier for two drivers

Sharing a car with someone while only having one key between you increases the risk of it getting lost. So having another key acts as a backup plan because it prevents both drivers from being unable to use the car due to a single lost key.

It also means each driver can have their own key, so they can use the car independently without relying on the other driver to hand over the key.

They can save you time

Losing your only car key will interrupt your plans and disrupt your day. Most lost car keys can be replaced quickly, but in some cases, it’s more difficult, and delivery times can delay the process of us providing you with a new key. But if you have another key, you’ll be able to still use your car while you wait for another from us.

They can benefit businesses

Spare car keys aren’t just for personal vehicles; we have lots of experience providing them for businesses. Businesses, especially those reliant on a fleet of vehicles can benefit significantly from having spare keys, as they can prevent disruptions and keep operations running smoothly.

It can give you peace of mind

Having a spare means you have a reliable backup if anything happens. So, instead of stressing out about losing your key or getting locked out of your car, you can relax knowing that you have a backup plan ready to help you out of any inconvenient situations.
