The 5 Types of Keys You Should Have Copies Of

One of the worst feelings is when you lose your keys. Whether it be getting locked out of your house, your business, or your car. It is always inconvenient to not be able to get in somewhere that you need to. To help avoid this, here are suggestions for the 5 most important keys to have copies of.

1. Your house key.

Keys Copies in San BernardinoThis also has the added benefit of letting people into your house if you were ever away from home, because you could simply tell them where you keep your spare house key so that they can get in your house. It’s a good idea to change the spot of where you hide your spare key every so often, even if only the most trustworthy people in your life know where it is.

2. Your car key.

Something that is little known is that you can have someone make a spare key for your car. You might already have one, but in the event that you don’t have a spare car key, you should have another one made and keep it inside your house. If you are already making copies of other keys, you should also spend a few extra dollars to get a copy of your car key just in case you ever need it.

3. Your storage unit key.

Even though you can easily get another storage unit key from the owner of your storage unit, it is a lot easier to simply have your own copy stored away somewhere in the event that you lose the original. This is due to the fact that most of the time when you need to get into your storage unit, it is most likely urgent. Having a spare will let you get into your unit while you are waiting for a new spare.

4. Your trustworthy neighbor’s house.

This is another situation where a mutual trust relationship can be extremely beneficial to both you and them. Make sure that you fully trust the person before you give them a copy of your own house key though. A spare key on hand will let you check on their pets, bring their mail into their house, water their plants, etc. when they are on vacation. You can ask them to do the same for you.

5. Your parents’ house.

You will never know when you might need to get inside of your parents’ house, or when they might need to get inside of yours. Whether it is an emergency, or you simply need to get something from inside their house, it is convenient to be able to simply walk in. Ask your parents if you can get a spare key to their house, and on top of that, give them a spare key to your own house. Your parents are also a good candidate for someone who could take care of your home while you were away if there was no one else to do it for you.

Having a spare key for the most important things in your life is like having insurance. You might never need to use it, but when you do, you are going to be extremely thankful that you do have it. Spare keys are not extremely expensive either, which means there is no excuse for not having them.
