I call my spare key “the lifesaver” because it saved me a lot of times when I lost my car key or when I’ve locked them in my car. It’s very important to have this key, because you’ll never know what will happen. If you want to know how long it will take a locksmith to make an extra key and what it will cost you are in the right place.

So how long would you wait for a spare key?

If you want to make your key by duplicating your master key, it won’t take much longer than 5 to 10 minutes. Your locksmith service should duplicate your key right in front of you for a decent price.

But no worries, a fast working stuff should provide you with the best service.
