Frequently Asked Questions
Why should I use a professional locksmith company?
Although you can always bring your car to the local dealership where you bought it to have them fix the door lock, it is always cheaper and more practical to just use the services of a professional locksmith company with technicians who have the necessary experience and knowledge.
Does my car key copy have a chip?
There is no definite way to confirm that. The rules vary depending on the car manufacturer. The easiest and fastest way to find out is to give us a call. We’d take a look at your key as well as your car. One of our car technicians will get back to you promptly with the information.
Is there a cheaper way to get a transponder key?
Transponder keys can be expensive, but not if you get them from an auto locksmith. This is cheaper than going to a dealer to have a key made. We can provide you with estimates upon request. Of course, a cheaper option is to get a spare key cut that will just give you access to the car.
Can you make me an original key for my car?
In most cases, we can create a new original key for a customer who has lost his car keys. However, if there is no chip, we may need to read the wafers in your vehicle’s ignition just to get the right key cut. If there is a chip, we would still need the correct programming information.
Do I need a locksmith to fix a car lock?
A tradesman or handyman can always try to open or fix your car door lock for you if you ask them. Car door locks may not seem complicated, but to be safe, it is always better to get a professional locksmith to do it for you. You will save time and money in the process.
Is my locksmith qualified to do the job?
To ensure that your locksmith is qualified, look for one with a locksmith license. It is a license that is earned after training and experience. Ideally, look for someone who is a member of a local association to ensure that he is up-to-date with new technologies.
What is the difference between changing locks and re-keying locks?
