NEW CAR KEYS
Have you ever noticed that your key doesn't seem to fit quite right into your car door lock or ignition? One reason for this is that the teeth no longer matches up perfectly with the parts of the lock that should open and close after you insert the key.
This can occur due to corrosion, dirt, dust, and just normal wear.
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.
Calling a trustworthy local car unlock ensures that you never lose access to your car due to a problem with a worn or broken key.
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.
Your final option is to contact us to request that one of our experienced locksmiths replace your car keys for you.
This will cost more than doing it yourself but less than taking your keys to a dealership.
Upon arrival, he or she will create a replacement set of keys for you.
This costs a bit more than attempting the job yourself and not as much as going to a dealership.
You have the added bonus of knowing that we guarantee our work.
The danger in not doing so is that you may encounter a third-party seller who provides you with defective equipment.
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.
Saving money by not having to go to a dealership is another big advantage.
Do I need to present my original key before you can create a new one?
Will you be able to make a new key if I have misplaced the original or it is very damaged?
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.
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.
However, you can depend on the skilled crew not to do this.
We operate very carefully to ensure that we only extract the key and do not harm anything else.
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 unlock technician rather than attempt it on your own.
If that happens to you, contact us to repair the damage.
On the rare chance that we also cause damage, we will fix it for free in addition to extracting your car key.
Although we don't expect it to happen, we promise to replace your lock or key at no charge if one of our technicians causes any type of damage to your vehicle.
We can even repair your lock or key if another locksmith company caused the damage.
Although fixing it at no charge is the right thing to do, not everyone shares the same values.
You could end up frustrated and wasting a lot of time arguing with a locksmith to do this.
