CAR KEY REPLACEMENT
It's common for a car key to become worn to the point where its teeth don't match the lock and won't open it at all.
This can occur due to corrosion, dirt, dust, and just normal wear.
The more severe the wear, the greater the likelihood that you won't be able to open or start your car.
If you ignore the problem, the keys will continue to wear out and you could find yourself stranded somewhere and unable to get into your own vehicle.
Calling a trustworthy local automotive locksmiths ensures that you never lose access to your car due to a problem with a worn or broken key.
Frequently Asked Questions
What is the procedure for replacing my car keys?
We always tell customers that they have one of three choices.
You can take your set of keys to a car dealership and ask them to create a duplicate set for you.
They should be able to do this without problem, although it may cost more than you were expecting to pay.
Unfortunately, high repair or replacement prices are a common problem at auto dealerships.
Your second and least expensive option is to try to replace your own car keys.
It's important that you know exactly what you're doing and that you buy or rent the proper tools to do so.
If you try to guess the instructions or use the wrong set of tools, you could end up with damaged keys that could eventually cause widespread damage to the ignition or an outside lock.
Your final option, and the one that we highly recommend, is to contact us and request that we dispatch a mobile locksmith technician to your current location.
Upon arrival, he or she will create a replacement set of keys for you.
What is the advantage of working with a mobile locksmith for car key replacement?
You have the added bonus of knowing that we guarantee our work.
What are the benefits to working with a mobile locksmith for key replacement?
Buying parts to create replacement keys from an unknown seller is always a risk.
Will I need to provide you with my original key to get a replacement?
Although it isn't necessary to give us a copy of your original key, it will help the process move more efficiently if you do have it.
We can easily duplicate your existing key without having to find the code from the original.
Do I need to present my original key before you can create a new one?
Although this isn't necessary, it is helpful to make the key creation process go faster.
You don't need to feel concerned about receiving a replacement car key if you no longer have the original.
If you use a fob or keys without any type of metal blades, producing it does little more than prove you legitimately own the vehicle.
What if my original key is too damaged or I lost it?
Once we do that, we can use your unique vehicle identification number to create a key for your vehicle.
Because we always stay abreast of current technology, we don't need to have a physical copy of your key in order to replicate it.
To get started, our locksmith first needs to confirm your ownership of the vehicle.
When people without the proper equipment or training attempt to do this, it can cause additional damage to the key, lock, or ignition.
There's even a chance that a mobile locksmith could cause some damage when trying to extract a key.
However, you can depend on the skilled crew not to do this.
When you don't have the right equipment and expertise, it's easy to damage your key or lock even more.
Unfortunately, other locksmiths can cause the same kind of damage.
If that happens to you, contact us to repair the damage.
We also guarantee your complete satisfaction with our services.
With all the options available to you, working with a professional automotive locksmiths technician is the way to go.
We can even repair your lock or key if another locksmith company caused the damage.
This is especially important since so many of the newer cars today use electronic fob or transponder systems rather than manual keys. Although we think that a locksmith company that damages your car should repair it at no charge, we realize that this doesn't always happen.
You could end up frustrated and wasting a lot of time arguing with a locksmith to do this.
