New Orleans 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 is the procedure for replacing 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.
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.
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.
What are the benefits to working with a professional locksmith for key replacement?
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.
Are you unable to replace my keys if I don't have the original?
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.
Can you still cut me a new key if the original is very damaged or I no longer have 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.
