When it comes to keeping your car keys safe and in a place you can always find them, it’s safe to say we can all be forgetful at times. Whether you’re setting off for work, or taking the kids to a sleepover, losing your keys is never convenient. So what do you do?
Check your insurance
We would first advise checking your insurance policy to see if you are covered against losing your keys. Many providers offer this, and it often works out much cheaper than paying the full price of replacement keys yourself.
Breakdown Cover/ Go to a dealer
Your breakdown company will be able to recover your car and take it to your nearest franchised dealer. There you’ll be able to purchase a set of brand-new keys. The cost may vary by brand, but we would always recommend getting a new key and a spare at the same time. In doing this all of your previous keys will be deactivated, so you won’t have to worry about someone finding them and driving your car.
At Swansway Motor Group, all of our dealerships offer a 12 month warranty with any parts purchased, so if anything were to happen, you’re always fully covered. Our trained advisors will examine the problem and come back to you with a solution. Yours and your vehicle's safety are our top priority so if you have any questions at all, please give us a call and we’ll talk you through it.
