Newark CAR KEY REPLACEMENT
Have you ever noticed that your key doesn't seem to fit quite right into your car door lock or ignition? One reason for this is that the teeth no longer matches up perfectly with the parts of the lock that should open and close after you insert the key. This can occur due to corrosion, dirt, dust, and just normal wear. The more severe the wear, the greater the likelihood that you won't be able to open or start your car. As soon as it starts to be a struggle, it's a good idea to contact a professional locksmith for repair or replacement. This can prevent you from becoming stranded when you can't start your car or getting locked out of it entirely.
Frequently Asked Questions
How should I go about replacing the keys for my car?
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.
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.
What are the benefits to working with a professional locksmith for key replacement?
Buying parts to create replacement keys from an unknown seller is always a risk. You have no guarantee as to the authenticity or quality of the parts. When you work with us, you know that we back both our products and workmanship. Saving money by not having to go to a dealership is another big advantage.
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.
Will you be able to make a new key if I have misplaced the original or it is very damaged?
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
We encourage you to resist the temptation to extract any part of a broken key from your car's ignition cylinder or from an outside door. When you don't have the right equipment and expertise, it's easy to damage your key or lock even more. Unfortunately, other locksmiths can cause the same kind of damage. If that happens to you, contact us to repair the damage. On the rare chance that we also cause damage, we will fix it for free in addition to extracting your car key.
We hope you can see why it's in your best interest to contact our company to have key extraction performed by a professional and qualified auto locksmith technician rather than attempt it on your own. Everyone in our company has in-depth knowledge about the newest types of technology and keys used in both new and older model cars. We also guarantee your complete satisfaction with our services. Although we don't expect it to happen, we promise to replace your lock or key at no charge if one of our technicians causes any type of damage to your vehicle.
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.
