Baltimore 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 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.
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.
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.
What is the advantage of working with a professional locksmith for car key replacement?
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.
Are you unable to replace my keys if I don't have the original?
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.
Will you be able to make a new key if I have misplaced the original or it is very damaged?
There's no need to worry that you won't be able to get a new key if you can't produce the original in good shape. Advanced technology makes it possible to create a new key for your car without physically holding the old key. A locksmith from We will first verify that you're the rightful owner of your car. The next step is to find the vehicle identification number on the car window or documentation and use that to make a new key for you.
