Auto Key Services Car Key Duplication

Many people underestimate the importance of having a spare set of keys on-hand for emergency situations. It’s a relatively cheap and easy way to avoid all sorts of complications down the line and one of the best ways to minimize the trouble and cost of losing your keys or getting locked out of your car.

Here at Auto Key Services, our master locksmiths use the finest key blanks and utilize the latest technology in car key duplication to ensure a clean, precision-cut key with a nearly unbeatable accuracy rate of 99%, faster and more affordably than your dealer or competing locksmith firms.

Common Reasons For Car Key Duplication

There are a number of good reasons to have your keys duplicated. Whether for convenience, preparation for emergencies, or to save money, the need for a spare set of keys is undeniable. Here are a few common reasons to have your keys duplicated:

1. Auto Key Wear And Tear

Over time, your key’s blade can become worn down through repeated contact with the sides of your ignition. This causes the key to sit loosely in the ignition and can lead to problems starting or unlocking the car. When this happens, you are definitely going to want to replace it and you will want a fresh, unworn key to work from to ensure maximum accuracy and functionality of the new key. Broken keys are the most common cause of lockouts. By having multiple keys on hand, you can also avoid having one key take all of the wear and tear by cycling between the two.

2. Multiple Users

This is probably the most common reason people have their keys duplicated. With multiple people using the same car, it’s often easier to simply have a set of keys for each user instead of having to pass a single set back and forth between one another. Having multiple people using a single set of keys also increases the chances of the keys being lost. When each individual has their own set of keys, they are the only ones responsible for keeping track of them and in the event that they are lost, there will always be another set on hand.

3. Lockout Prevention

In the event of a lockout due to lost keys or keys being locked in your car, you can avoid paying a locksmith to pop your lock by having a spare set of keys in a safe, accessible place. This is one of those cases where having a spare can save you time and money.
