Lost Keys Car/Home/Commercial
You know that feeling – The one you get when you realize you can’t find your keys. You frantically pat down your pockets and tear things apart as you overturn items to search for your lost keys. You panic until they are found or until you have a new set of keys in your hands. The most common lost keys are those to your car, your home, or your commercial property. Whether the lost keys are for your car, home, or commercial space, you now have two things to consider:
- You need to find the key or have a duplicate key made immediately
- Since you don’t know who may have found or stolen the key, even if the lost key is located, you now have potential security concerns to consider
Lost Home Keys
The morning was going as planned, or perhaps it was rushed and hectic in a hurry to get to an important meeting. Everything seemed on par until you heard the door latch behind you and suddenly realized your keys are not in your hand, and the door is locked from the inside. Or, maybe you had no idea that you had lost your keys until you arrived back home after a long day’s work and go to reach for your keys to open the front door. Regardless of how it happened, the only solution is that you need to either find your keys or you need a replacement key or another way of entrance immediately.
Lost Car Keys
You reach for your keys to start your car’s ignition, only they’re nowhere to be found. Or, you find yourself completely locked out of your car, maybe even stranded in a parking lot. It happens every day to somebody. Today, that somebody is you. Chances are, you are in a hurry and have no time to waste. Maybe you even have an electronic keyfob or a transponder key that starts your car remotely and requires a bit more than metal and a key cutter to make a replacement key to get you back on the road again. Not only that but when your keys are lost, you wonder whose hands they may have fallen into.
Lost Office or Commercial Keys
When you own or rent office space for a business or own commercial properties like condos or apartments that you lease to others, lost keys are almost a daily worry. What if your employee loses his or her key? You not only have to provide them with a new key so they can open the office door but now you wonder who may have unlimited access to your valuable assets that are usually locked up at your business. When it is a commercial property with many tenants, lost keys is an ongoing consideration.
A qualified locksmith is able to make you a new set of keys on the spot, even for transponder keys. However, having a replacement key that works is not your only consideration when you have lost keys. After you have lost your keys, it’s a good idea to have your locks replaced or rekeyed. The reason for this is because unless you know absolutely for sure that your keys were never in the hands of a stranger, the truth is that whoever found your keys could have made a copy of them and now has access to your home, car, or commercial space whenever they choose to use it.
