You’ll see hacks online for fixing your own car key. We get it, money is tight, but you might find that hacking your way through might cost you more in the long run.
Who Do I Call for a Broken Key?
Take a moment to note your car make, model and registration number. These are handy to have to hand. Next, call your local auto locksmith; here at 3D Autokeys, the Midlands car key specialists, we offer replacement car keys services.
Why not call a dealership?
Are you ready to dig deep into your pockets? Using a dealership for your replacement car key can cost you a packet. Yes, you’ll get your car’s exact key but lose time and money.
Using a dealer may mean that you’re without your car for some time, possibly having to leave your vehicle at the dealership overnight or even longer. So instead, you can call 3D Autokeys, and we can come to you! We also have an easy-to-reach head office, just off junction 27 on the M1.

3D Autokeys have keys that are ready to programme, that speed up the car key programming process. As a result, we can acquire your unique key and replicate it onto new key blades.
This process is much faster and cheaper than the alternatives.
