Hartford 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 do I need to do to replace 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.
The second option you can explore is to try to replace your own car keys. This will cost you the least, but it's important that you know exactly what you are doing to avoid wasting time and effort.
Your final option is to contact us to request that one of our experienced locksmiths replace your car keys for you. This will cost more than doing it yourself but less than taking your keys to a dealership. Most importantly, working with a skilled auto locksmith ensures that you receive a new set of keys that fits into your door lock or ignition without breaking or refusing to turn.
What is the advantage of working with a professional locksmith for car 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.
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.
Replacing your car key after you have had it extracted
If you discover that you have broken off part of your key in one of your car's locks or its ignition, we urge you not to try to extract it on your own. When people without the proper equipment or training attempt to do this, it can cause additional damage to the key, lock, or ignition. There's even a chance that a professional locksmith could cause some damage when trying to extract a key. However, you can depend on the skilled crew not to do this. We operate very carefully to ensure that we only extract the key and do not harm anything else.
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.
