Reno - a place to get RV keys copied?

Postby carefactornil » Fri Aug 10, 2012 1:38 pm

Hi,

Coming from the UK and hiring an RV. Would like to take a precaution and get a couple of spare sets of keys cut so we've all got a set in case they get lost.

Can anyone recommend somewhere in Reno that can cut RV keys (door & ignition)? Last time we did this it was a bit of a nightmare trying to find somewhere that was open, so if someone KNOWS somewhere in Reno that does this, then that would be awesome to know.

Cheers!

if its a standard rv with a truck cab up front Home Depot can do the front door / ignition keys. The side RV door they didn't have blanks for.

Thanks. Seeing as I'm picking up about $5,000 of stuff from Home Depot in Reno for our project maybe they'll throw those spares in for free!

Seriously - it won't be long before they start charging extra if you want a printed receipt.

"aint nothin free" - well, except at Burning Man! ;)

Now if only someone could set up a key-cutting workshop there, now THAT would be popular!

Remember, sometimes "free" comes at a price. (free clinic anyone?? :shock: )

i've used desert locksmith 836 w. 5th several times.
and they are near the savemart on keystone which is burner friendly if you need to stock up on groceries/water/etc or pick up potential rideshares.

Yeah, I'm gonna leave the "car key" shop to some USA burners, I think Trilo! :)

I AM bringing one the largest playa art installations instead though this year!

Dont go to homedepot!!!! They cannot copy newer model vehicle keys - i.e. keys that are "laser" cut. I tried to get a copy of my truck key there and they failed everytime. Just a FYI

OK. Well I'll try HomeDepot as I'm there anyway.

So where did you end up getting them done?
