Las Vegas 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.
Frequently Asked Questions
What is the procedure for replacing 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.
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.
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?
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.
