Where to go in Tauranga CBD for a spare key?

Key Cutting Service

Are you in the city and needing a spare house key, business key or another padlock key? Come and see us in Piccadilly Arcade. Where the heck is that I hear you ask? Piccadilly Arcade runs from 43 Devonport Road through to 44 Grey Street. You'll find us at the Grey Street end.​
While we specialize in repairing shoes it's sounds wrong for a shop like us not to cut keys. It is expected that Shoe Repairer and Key Cutting goes together.
We cut standard business and house keys and a few car keys that don't have modern anti theft transponders in the head of the key. If in doubt bring it in and we will check it with our transponder checking gadget.

Happy car key customer

Thank you for persevering with our car key! The new one works perfectly and it is great to be able to use a remote key once more. We really appreciate the trouble you have taken and are grateful that you took up the challenge. To obtain a new key at a fraction of the cost quoted by the manufacturer’s agents is quite an achievement. Well done!
With all good wishes,


Where to go for Transponder Keys in Tauranga

While we do not offer a transponder key replacement service ourselves. When I need a new car key with a transponder I call three places for a price before leaving home.
- The dealer eg Toyota, Ford etc
- Minuteman by Boys College
- Tony at Zanden Locksmiths
- Shane at The Locksmith Guy

Additional questions to ask
- How long is the key guaranteed?
- Will the key do all the things my original does, like open the boot.
- Will the remote etc be a separate thing to have on my key ring or built into the key head.
There have been other cheaper places that I've had people try but they have often had to go back 2-3 times to get it working properly.​
