Professional Locksmith Services
If you have lost your car key or it is giving you a hard time, we can help. Many people only have one set of keys we get a ton of calls every day from people who find themselves needing a new ignition key... fast.
Should you call an automotive locksmith or the car dealership? This is where it can get confusing. Depending on your vehicle a dealer may actually save you money. It is always good to check with your dealer first to see how much a new key would cost and what they require from you. This way you have an idea of the cost and sometimes if no programming is required you will save money. Some cars only the dealer can program.
If your key requires programming and towing your vehicle to the dealership can be expensive, inconvenient or time consuming, an automotive locksmith is your best bet. Dealership hours are like bank hours and if your luck is like mine, this sort of thing happens at the worse possible time.
There are some things to keep in mind when you call an automotive locksmith to come make you an ignition key. Some ignition keys require specific key cutting machines and expensive dealer codes. If a lower quality machine is used, the key may not work correctly. Saving money here can be a mistake. Sometimes it is better to pay a little more and get something that works the way it should.
It is very important to provide the make, model and year of your vehicle before a technician is sent to you. Chevrolet, Ford, Lexus, Chrysler, Mercedes-Benz, BMW, Honda, Nissan, Jeep, Dodge, Saturn, Toyota and all of the rest may have specific requirements. If we know ahead of time we can make sure we are equipped and capable of cutting and programming your key.
If your key is not turning in the ignition easily or you have to wiggle it around before it does, be careful. You may find yourself stuck someplace when it decides not to turn at all.
I can't tell you how often we see this. Of course it is better to have it looked at before this happens. But we all know how that goes. In case you find yourself stuck with a stubborn ignition, one of our car locksmiths will fix it fast. If needed, we can replace it for you.
