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.

Calling a trustworthy local automotive locksmith 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.

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.

However, you should know that this is also you most expensive option.

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.

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.

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.

The danger in not doing so is that you may encounter a third-party seller who provides you with defective equipment.

As mentioned above, going to an auto dealership for this service can blow your budget in a hurry.

You have no guarantee as to the authenticity or quality of the parts.

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.

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.

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.

If you discover that you have broken off part of your key in one of your car's locks or its ignition, we urge you not to try to extract it on your own.

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.

Although fixing it at no charge is the right thing to do, not everyone shares the same values.

We welcome you to contact us for help 24 hours a day to request help with an issue caused by someone else. Sometimes it's best just to cut your losses rather than continue arguing for fair treatment.
