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.

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 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.

Frequently Asked Questions

What is the procedure for replacing my car keys?

We always tell customers that they have one of three choices.

You can take your set of keys to a car dealership and ask them to create a duplicate set for you.

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

Car dealerships tend to charge the most for any type of service, including repairing or replacing a set of keys.

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.

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.

Your final option, and the one that we highly recommend, is to contact us and request that we dispatch a professional locksmith technician to your current location.

Most importantly, working with a skilled car unlock ensures that you receive a new set of keys that fits into your door lock or ignition without breaking or refusing to turn.

This costs a bit more than attempting the job yourself and not as much as going to a dealership.

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.

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?

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.

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.

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.

To get started, our locksmith first needs to confirm your ownership of the vehicle.

When people without the proper equipment or training attempt to do this, it can cause additional damage to the key, lock, or ignition.

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.

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.

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.

With all the options available to you, working with a professional car unlock technician is the way to go.

We can even repair your lock or key if another locksmith company caused the damage.

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

You could end up frustrated and wasting a lot of time arguing with a locksmith to do this.
