Indianapolis CAR KEY REPLACEMENT
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 auto locksmith ensures that you never lose access to your car due to a problem with a worn or broken key.
What do I need to do to replace 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. They should be able to do this without problem, although it may cost more than you were expecting to pay. Unfortunately, high repair or replacement prices are a common problem at auto dealerships.
Another way you can handle this is by attempting to replace car keys on your own. While this is the least expensive option, keep in mind that you need the right tools as well as the proper instructions to avoid making the wrong key or a key that will ultimately damage your vehicle.
Your final option, and the one that we highly recommend, is to contact us and request that we dispatch a mobile locksmith technician to your current location. 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.
Are there benefits to having a locksmith replace my 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.
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.
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 can provide you with a replacement key after we extract your old one
Please don't try to pull a broken key out of the ignition of your car or from one of its doors. Without the proper training and equipment, you can cause significant damage to your lock or key. Even other locksmiths can cause this type of damage, but you don't have to worry about that as a customer. Our locksmiths use their extensive training and experience to carefully extract your key without causing damage to any other part of your vehicle.
With all the options available to you, working with a professional auto locksmith technician is the way to go. We require each of our service employees to complete ongoing education to make sure that they can work with keys for any make or model of vehicle. This is especially important since so many of the newer cars today use electronic fob or transponder systems rather than manual keys.
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. Calling us can save you both time and money rather than hoping that another company will relent and fix their damage without charging you for it.
