Can I Fix a Snapped Car Key?

Posted 10/11/22 by Elspeth Myers

It can feel like the end of the road for you and your car when your car key snaps! But not all hope is lost. With the help of an auto lock­smith, your bro­ken car key will be fixed in no time. 

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. 

Con­tact the experts instead!

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.
