CAR KEYS

Hi All, This may seem like a lame question but as I am on this page why not ask here. I have lost my car keys to a Volvo V40. Where can I have a set cut? I understand it's a rather complicated process as they have to be coded when cut. Also can I claim through my comprehensive insurance cover if it's worth it.

Should you get a key replaced on the cheap and your car gets nicked you have handed your insurance company a gold plated get out clause!

Its either the car or walk or on ya bike or get a bus or taxi or the tube or British Rail or get lift or get the darn key or try to remember where you might of misplaced them. Contact the police to c if they have been handed in.

If that would be the case, then perhaps all motor factors should close their business, because they might or most likely do sell 'cloned' parts?.

Perhaps another case of manufacturer's monopoly, with the customer not reaping the benefits?.

Check your car insurance company. Some companies now include key cover and 'putting in the wrong fuel' in the car.

Good luck

Having purchased a used car that had only the one key supplied- [The dealer affirmed that is how it came to him,and contacting last owner affirmed that he had sold the vehicle to a trade dealer with both keys- I resolved to try to go 'cheap' A google revealed a number of key replacement franchises- where I got a quotes each of which came to be dearer than the Main dealer price.

Going of topic slightly- the previous owner said both keys were with the car when sold on to a trade source- but only one key was available when I got it.

I occurred to me that if this car was a premium brand- there could be a scam whereby once the car has a new registered owner/address- the key and location could be sold on to those that like to acquire such prestigious vehicles for gain.

I am going to wait a few wks for TFL Lost Property to get back to me and going back to place of work to see if I had mislaid them there. Having checked out various options, it seems in the long run I'll have to go to a Volvo Dealership if needs be.
