car keys

A spare car keys is a definite lifesaver!

And why would that be?

Well, let's start with the reasons you might only have one working car key: you could have lost the other key, or it could have been accidentally damaged... or you could have bought your vehicle but only received just the one key with it.

Whatever the reason, it may be that up to now you've been thinking that duplicating your existing key was an unnecessary expense – but you'd have thought wrong!

Getting a spare car key is easier than it used to be.

A while back if you were having problems with your vehicle key you'd have found yourself heading back to your dealership for a repair or a replacement.

But that’s not how it works any more: specialist automobile locksmiths not only come to you – wherever you may be – but they’re also much less expensive than dealerships, plus you’ll get the key you need a great deal faster.

If you lose your only car key, here’s just a little bit of what you can expect before you’re back on the road again:

  1. The time taken to unlock your vehicle, which could involve decoding the door locks, and even the ignition switch …
  2. … and yet more time to override the vehicle’s existing internal security system – which could involve a great deal of expense when it comes to replacing system components …
  3. … which all adds up to the inconvenience and expense of not having access to your vehicle for days on end, and perhaps even having to hire a replacement for the duration.

But then again, PT Auto Locksmiths is a skilled mobile technician – ready, willing and definitely able to get to you wherever you are in Tamworth, Staffordshire and the surrounding areas within an hour. And 99 times out of a hundred they’ll get you back on the road again that very same day.

Did we mention our replacement key service is going to cost you far less than what you’d be charged by a dealership?

Here’s something else to bear in mind: if two of you are driving the same vehicle, it’s almost a given that you’ll each have your own different positions for the driver’s seat and rear-view mirrors. In many cases these days, cars can remember those settings according to which key is in the ignition. So with a duplicate key, adjusting the driver’s seat and seat back, the internal and side mirrors is all done for you long before you even think about releasing the handbrake, meaning that over time that key could well pay for itself in convenience alone.

What vehicle make and model spare keys are available?

We provide new and duplicate keys for just about every vehicle under the sun – you can find yours here: makes and models. But don’t worry if your vehicle isn’t there – it may just be that we haven’t updated our list recently, so give us a call and we’ll check for you.

So is a spare vehicle key really worth having?

Well, unless you're happy to put up with the delay, inconvenience and expense should your only key stop functioning or go missing, the logical answer is a definite "yes".

And how would we sort that out for you? Have a look at our lost or stolen car key and vehicle security pages to discover exactly what we do to prevent old keys working on your car, and to get you back into the driver’s seat as fast as possible.

How long does it take to make a spare key?

Duplicating an existing key - with the equipment on hand either at our workshop or by the roadside – is a simple matter: the key blade needs to be cut and the new transponder chip needs to be matched with the chip in the original key. That can be done in minutes – while you wait.

Who can cut and programme spare keys?

Many companies – and even individuals – are offering auto locksmith services, but your best bet would be to use a service that:

  • Has technicians who are qualified in every aspect of auto locksmithing
  • Has technicians who are equally at home working on a 1986 Polo or a 2022 Porsche
  • Is equipped with the absolute latest in vehicle security technology
  • Has a proven track record, with positive feedback from thousands of delighted customers...

...and that service would, of course, be PT Auto Locksmiths!
