It was meant as a joke.... who's looking stupid now?


Strange but you appeared to have been trolling and knew it was a joke. Looking at the comment there was no emoji to show this was intended to be fun. So technically looking at your posts you are.

Anyone got a story of a job as result of this offer ?

I hope they can dry clean better than they can do dog tags.

Good to see Edward doing something for the working man for once.

Well done Timpsons. Heat added.

I don't get why people are getting their knickers in saying this is a bad deal or timpson this and that, unemployed should pay.

Its a generous thing to help those on the bones of their **** looking for work, remember a lot of ex military officers fall into this category too when they have been dumped by the MoD.

I wish more retailers would make small meaningful gestures like this, would show we were a kind caring society after all.

I am as cynical as they come but this is a good thing from Timpsons.

I've always been impressed by the service I receive in Timpson and have a lot of respect for the company giving people a chance who otherwise would be cast onto a scrapheap. As posted above - we could keep kicking people down and in a cycle of repeat offending (and the cost that brings to society as a whole) or you could give people an opportunity to kick-on and lead productive lives. Helping-out people in general trying to get into work is also a noble cause.

In today's era of corporate greed and tax avoidance it's refreshing to see a company giving something back to those in need.

I for one hope I have done my last job interview and certainly hope I don't ever become unemployed, however if I was unlucky enough and this helped me find a new job I'd be grateful.

Sweetest offer I've seen in a while. Apparently this is national. Note it says "outfit" not just "suit" so it wouldn't be limited to suits. Could have your dress cleaned up if you're a woman. Or indee… Read more

There is more information about this offer on their website:

A very good thing being done by Timpson's. Should teach the likes of Tesco's a lesson or 2.

Hopefully those that get a job after some Timpson's cleaning will return to them for some paid services.

That was precisely my point.

I would suggest you do a bit more digging if you think agency care … I would suggest you do a bit more digging if you think agency care workers are low paid - they're invariably paid more than full-time staff care workers!

Not sure but I don't think there's an end date for it. Just an ongoing thing.

Great stuff this!


What Is? Is this STILL going?

The great thing about this offer is that the company is showing social responsibility. In this system where the more you have the less you need to pay, all big companies should be the same and if they're not they should be forced to be.

We live in a world where they put spikes on the floor outside selfridges to keep the homeless from bothering them and where supermarkets pour bleach on wasted food to stop starving people rooting through their bins. This is only a minor thing but it's a little antidote to things like that.

I meant that there should be more things like this to help people get jobs, rather than the current system which can be easily abused and doesn't do enough to help people who actually try. I've worked with people who quit their jobs because they earned more on benefits, that doesn't solve anything.


Hi Dan,
I`m a Support Worker for people with learning disabilities, on a Zero-Hour contract for an extremely well known charity (who still take advantage). I `ve lived on benefits, and sometimes it is better than work?!!
But NOT because the unemployed are Lazy? But because, at least you know you will be able to pay your rent!!

Something Cameron + Osborne have NEVER had to worry about?
Dew to their Benefit System? "INHERITANCE BENEFITS" - From Birth!!

I`ve NEVER met an unemployed person who is lazy? But I`ve met plenty of "BIGOTS" using this "MYTH" to "PRETEND" their BETTER people than unemployed people? The OPPOSITE is usually the reason!
Cameron + Osborne being JUST "2 Drips in the Ocean"!!

But, all the best to you, and thanks for your clarification. Mike

£25 for a chipped car key at Timpsons in Metro Centre Gateshead.
Just had a Ford key cut at Timpsons in Metro Centre Gateshead. £25 for a chipped car key is a bargain.

Suzuki your right any key cutter can copy the key but even for a non-remote one I've never came across anyone who'd copy and programme a key for under £50.

they cloned your jag key, any key cutter does that for pretty similar money, that wouldn't have included the remote functions same with your Fords. the independent that quoted £150 was quoting for a remote, key blade & programming into the car, not just knocking one up on a bench. there is a difference between a £25 key and a £150 one! you pays your money you takes your chances!

Qoute -
though timpson are good (if there is no other option to you) I had a ford key cut (£35) there last week and thought I had saved money, went around the corner and went into a cobbler shop who cut keys and wondered how much they charge they were ven cheaper quoting me £29-99 and this was NORMAL price offering a deal if I bought 2?
This is obviously a rip off item, the dealers and there prices.. timpson and there's 'kidding' everyone "Half Price!" ask them how much for a 'Normal' house key a yale for instance? £6-00 around here!
Simple answer's are - SHOP around!
Qoute_
"Yes, but you are buying into the brand too. I own a BMW but a Kia would have done the same job and would be cheaper.

Also, do bear in mind that Timpsons are more than likely to 'sort the key out' if it accidently bends or breaks or if it doesn't function as it should (which can happen with Immobiliser keys). Local Jonny boy won't. I don't know about their recent keys but their older keys had Timpsons engraved on them and once it got a bit bent out of shape. Took it to the local Timpsons who cut a new one for free no questions asked"
-----------------------------------------------------
I tried this (after reading this) my key with "timpson" stamped on, it was bent (slightly) but not easy to put into lock, the timpson shop I called on stated - "as it was worn" would not recut for free"
so they seem just the same as "Johnny-Boy"

vw keys can be done by a proper auto locksmith even the precoded ones i got mine 2010 golf key done the dealers tolld me 5 days as they had to order it from germany but i went to cartronics uk in bradford they did me one with a fob exact same key as mine within the hour! dont know if any of you are near bradford if so you can visit them cartronicsuk.com

just in case anyone's interested, just had my 59 plate fiat grande punto car key copied, it opens and starts the car, thanks op for listing

So can an 07 Golf be done over the counter at certain branches or is it dealer only seems to be a mixed opinion on VAG, I have the original key just want a spare in case the worse happens.

[email protected] being cheap.

Another user is correct - try asking the price of a Yale type key and compare to what most of the independents are charging. The prices seem to differ depending who's operating the Timpson shop at the time too!!!

The Timpson near me charges a fiver for a Yale key or two for seven fifty, my local cobbler charges £3.25 per key and it's still cheaper by a quid to get two cut without any 'Special Deals'

People are always moaning about the death of town centres, villages and small businesses. Stop bloody moaning and do your bit to support your small independent and your community!

You get much better service imo as the independent will be keen to keep your custom as he doesn't get paid a wage regardless.

In order of expense for car keys:
1) Main dealer £££££
2)Timpson ££££
3)Independent ££
