NEW CAR KEYS
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.
As soon as it starts to be a struggle, it's a good idea to contact a mobile locksmith for repair or replacement.
Calling a trustworthy local car lock out 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?
You can approach this issue in one of several different ways.
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.
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.
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.
However, providing your original key only proves that you own the vehicle if it uses a fob and doesn't contain any type of metal blade.
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.
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?
This isn't a problem for us .
