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.

As soon as it starts to be a struggle, it's a good idea to contact a professional locksmith for repair or replacement.

This can prevent you from becoming stranded when you can't start your car or getting locked out of it entirely.


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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.
