22 Apr BACK TO BUSINESS
Hurray! Now that Covid restrictions have eased, Keyishoes is finally back open from our refurbished unit in Curry’s PC World and B&M Bargains Car Park in the Kingstown Retail Park, Carlisle. This means that we can now offer our full range of services once again which we’ve highlighted below – and we very much look forward to seeing all of our wonderful customers again!
Need a spare key?
As people are getting out and about more, there are more chances of misplacing or losing keys! So, make sure you have a spare key for your home and vehicle to avoid getting locked out.
Here at Keyishoes, we offer a comprehensive key cutting service using our precision key cutting machines, covering Cylinder (Yale type) and Mortice (Skeleton type) keys with a wide selection of key blanks for most applications including desks, lockers, cash boxes and padlocks.
We can also supply, cut and programme electronic car and van keys for most makes and models, including modern ‘Smart’ keys for vehicles with Keyless Ignition (Push Button Start). With our computerised key cutting machine, we can cut your key to code and even supply the key code for you.
There are options available for most budgets as we offer remote or non-remote and genuine or aftermarket choices to suit your preference, giving you massive savings on main dealer prices for spare car keys – and you don’t even have to wait all day! Programming your key can normally be done within the hour while you have a look around the nearby shops, and sometimes even sooner!
We’re usually 30-50% cheaper than the main dealer!
If your key is not working as good as it should, why not let us have a look at it? We can repair and refurbish faulty or worn remote fobs, using specialist tools to get your key fob back to looking like new in no time.
Whether that involves cutting new blades to the manufacturer’s key code, replacing the case, switches or Transponder Antenna, or simply changing the battery – this could save you a huge amount on the cost of replacements.
Leave it to the professionals
Changing your car fob battery yourself can be a risky business – and cheap batteries bought online often don’t cut it. Attempting to do this may leave you with loose components, a broken case, or even a non-starter! So why risk it if you can get a quality battery replaced and fitted professionally in just a few minutes, for under £10?
If you want a quality battery that won’t dent your wallet, consider getting it replaced at Keyishoes.
Freshen up your wardrobe
Now that some of us are going back to work and certainly many of us are enjoying some time with friends at the pub, albeit outside, why not make use of our dry cleaning service and freshen up your wardrobe to get your business wear and party clothes (or warm coats!) looking good as new again.
As an Appointed Agent of Johnson’s the Cleaners, we offer a fast and reliable dry cleaning, clothes alteration and repair service to make your clothes look and smell great. Just drop off your items at our shop in the Kingstown Retail Park in Carlisle and we will have them ready for you to collect two days later!
Did you know we offer the fastest dry cleaning service in the North of Carlisle? Bring your dry cleaning to us and we will have it ready for you within just 48 hours!
Look after your shoes
Have you found yourself walking more lately? Perhaps those boots are in need of a repair, or maybe your old work shoes are thinning on the soles… Whatever the reason, if your shoes are looking a bit worse for wear, bring them to us and we can give them a new lease of life. As professional shoe repairers, we can mend or replace dodgy zips, fix loose seams, and replace worn-down soles for extra grip. You can learn more about our Shoe Repair service here.
Can modern fashion shoes be repaired?
This is a question we’re regularly asked, and the answer is a definite YES! In fact, over 90% of shoes can be repaired.
Make an impression
Keyishoes can quickly and accurately engrave on a variety of materials using our computerised diamond engraver, which is great for creating durable bespoke small format notices or plaques for doctors surgeries, accountants, solicitors and architects offices for example.
Our Engraving services are also ideal for companies in need of personalised key tags that can be attached to key fobs, lanyards and till cards for instance – perfect for car dealerships, offices, retail organisations and hospitality industries!
If you run a business and want to show some recognition for your hardworking employees, what about a personalised gesture like an engraved award for your staff? You can browse our trophies and awards catalogue here.
Or, maybe your pet needs a new ID tag? We have a variety of durable tag shapes and colours to choose from which can be engraved to a high quality.
Did you know?
It’s a legal requirement in the UK for dogs to wear a collar and display necessary identification information. An engraved ID tag is an ideal solution so that your dog can be quickly identified and reunited with you if they stray.
Engraving can also be used to personalise gifts, so get in touch with us for inspiration if you’re looking to treat someone to something special!
Fix your forgotten treasures
Have you spent some time over lockdown sorting through the house, only to have re-discovered an old watch or two hidden in a drawer that you never got around to repairing? Well, if that’s the case, bring them over to Keyishoes and let’s get them working for you again. We can replace watch batteries, straps and broken Spring Bars, as well as add or remove links for the perfect fit. Find out more about our Watch services here.
