Car key replacements

Losing your car keys can be a real headache, especially if it is your only set meaning you have no way of getting into your car. At your local locksmith we always supply a set of spare car keys for every car key cutting we do, so that owners can rest assured that if they do lose a set then it isn’t the end of the world. Many people come to us to have replacement cuts made, which is always a sensible choice and one that we would recommend.

These chips can and do become faulty with time, meaning that the car will no longer start when the key is turned. The solution to this problem is of course to have another key made based on the design and coding of the original set. Our expert locksmiths will replace any broken transponder keys at a competitive price regardless of the make and model of the vehicle. We stock all known types of UK car key and our staff are well trained in working with all of them.
