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.
For less worn keys, it may take a few attempts to open the car door before the key will work.
If the latter happens to you, consider it a warning to replace your car keys as soon as you can.
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.
This can prevent you from becoming stranded when you can't start your car or getting locked out of it entirely.
What do I need to do to replace my car keys?
We always tell customers that they have one of three choices.
The first is to take your current set of keys to the dealership where you bought the car and ask them to cut replacement keys 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.
The second option you can explore 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 professional 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 professional locksmith for new car keys?
We strongly believe that working with our company provides the most effective option at the most affordable price.
What are the benefits to working with a professional locksmith for key replacement?
As mentioned above, going to an auto dealership for this service can blow your budget in a hurry.
Will I need to provide you with my original key to get a replacement?
When you work with us, you know that we back both our products and workmanship.
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.
However, we can duplicate your car key even if we are unable to look for a code on your original key.
Thanks to advances in technology, locksmiths no longer need to have a physical copy of the key that requires replacement.
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.
Replacing your car key after you have had it extracted
To get started, our locksmith first needs to confirm your ownership of the vehicle.
With that information, he or she can obtain your vehicle identification number and input that into our replication equipment to make you a new key.
There's even a chance that a professional locksmith could cause some damage when trying to extract a key.
We encourage you to resist the temptation to extract any part of a broken key from your car's ignition cylinder or from an outside door.
When you don't have the right equipment and expertise, it's easy to damage your key or lock even more.
We hope you can see why it's in your best interest to contact our company to have key extraction performed by a professional and qualified car lockouts technician rather than attempt it on your own.
