Los Angeles CAR KEY REPLACEMENT
Everyday wear and tear can cause the teeth of your car keys not to match the lock mechanism and then fail to open or start your car. If the key isn't quite as worn yet, it will usually still work but it may take several tries. When this happens, it's a good sign that you should contact a professional locksmith and have them create you a new set of keys. The danger in not doing so is that the keys will continue to wear down and you will eventually find yourself locked out of your vehicle or unable to start it. Losing access to your own vehicle is a hassle. Fortunately, you can prevent it by taking a proactive approach to key management.
What do I need to do to replace my car keys?
You have three options for car key replacement. The first one, which we don't recommend, is to bring your keys to a local dealership and request that they create a new set of keys. Although this should be easy for them to do, it could be quite costly for you. Dealerships sometimes charge a lot of money simply because they know people are desperate and they can.
The second option you can explore is to try to replace your own car keys. This will cost you the least, but it's important that you know exactly what you are doing to avoid wasting time and effort.
We think the best choice is to call us and ask us to send a certified locksmith to your location to cut a new set of keys for you. In terms of price, this costs less than a dealership and more than doing it yourself. However, you have the assurance of knowing that we have the proper equipment and training to do the job right the first time.
Are there benefits to having a locksmith replace my keys?
Absolutely. When you call us, we send a trustworthy locksmith to your location who will finish the job promptly. We are also happy to offer an unconditional satisfaction guarantee. If you buy equipment from a third-party seller, there's no guarantee that it's not defective and that the person isn't just out to make a quick buck. It's also a big advantage to paying too much for this service at an auto dealership.
Do I need to present my original key before you can create a new one?
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?
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. An employee simply needs to verify that you own the vehicle. Once we do that, we can use your unique vehicle identification number to create a key for your vehicle.
We’ll replace your car key after we extract
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. When you don't have the right equipment and expertise, it's easy to damage your key or lock even more. Unfortunately, other locksmiths can cause the same kind of damage. 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.
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 auto locksmith technician rather than attempt it on your own. Everyone in our company has in-depth knowledge about the newest types of technology and keys used in both new and older model cars. We also guarantee your complete satisfaction with our services. 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.
Although we think that a locksmith company that damages your car should repair it at no charge, we realize that this doesn't always happen. 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. We understand that you're upset and will do our best to save you as much time and money as possible.
