Everything you need to know about getting an extra car key made

There could be numerous reasons as to why you’re looking into getting a new car key made.

Perhaps you’ve lost yours, or the second-hand vehicle you purchased never came with one.

Either way, you’ll need to do your research.

One of the first places you should consider for getting your new car key is an auto locksmith

such as ourselves. We can help with everything from the programming of vehicle keys to car

lock outs. There’s no job too big or too small!

Where to get your car key from?

If you’re in South Wales there’s no need to go anywhere other than us (of course!), but if you’re

elsewhere in the UK or world for that matter, you’ll want to do a Google search to find a reliable

auto locksmith close to you. Don’t forget to read those reviews to save you any trouble!

Just to note, don’t waste your time looking into getting a replacement by a dealership because

this will only prolong the situation and result in higher costs.

Can you get a duplicate car key without the original?

Yes! An auto locksmith will remove the ignition and use a mould to determine the shape of the

key. The more information you can give us, the quicker we can get the job done e.g. what make

and model the car is, as well as the style of car key.

How long does it take?

It depends on the service required, but you’d be looking at anywhere from 30 minutes (once

we’ve arrived at your location) to a few hours. You can confirm this with your chosen auto

locksmith before the work is carried out.

Can auto locksmiths replace transponder keys?

Us auto locksmiths have access to a variety of useful gadgets and tools, making sure that we

can help with vehicle keys old and new.

The tool we have for transponder keys reads the code or signal sent out by the key, which we

can then copy onto blank transponder replacements.
