Why do I need Spare Car Keys?

Spare car keys can prove to be very useful, whether it’s because you’ve misplaced your primary key or had it stolen, many of us have found them useful. For one reason or another you may find yourselves without spare car keys. It could be because you have purchased a pre-owned car and it only came with one key or perhaps one was damaged and a spare had never been purchased to replace the set. Either way, it is a good idea to always own a spare key to your vehicle. By having spare set this can save you time and money in the future.

If you don’t have at least two keys for your vehicle then call Cheshire Auto Locksmiths to re-programme and cut a new set of car keys for almost any car on location within our mobile locksmith vehicles.

My Car Keys have been stolen, what now?

It can be very traumatic finding that your car keys have been stolen. Whether it has happened at home, work or whilst out the No.1 thing to be concerned with is speed and urgency. After all, for many it’s one of the most valuable purchases and it can be stressful thinking that someone has unlawful access to it. Here’s what to do:

  1. Call the local police station or use 101. Please do not use 999 as it should be reserved for emergencies such as when a crime is in progress, someone suspected of a crime is nearby, when there is danger to life or when violence is being used or threatened. Let them know that you are getting Cheshire Auto Locksmiths to attend to your car. More information can be found here for 101
  2. Once you have notified the police, call your insurance. Ensure you ask whether replacement keys are covered by the insurance.
  3. Remember that your car is insured and you should never try to stop a thief if they return to take the vehicle. Car crimes can become violent.
