Lost or damaged your car key? The good news is a locksmith can assist you with a duplicate or a new car key.
If you don’t have the original car key, it does make things a little trickier, but it’s still possible to get back on the road with your new key in hand.
So, should you approach a locksmith about a duplicate, or is it best to go to a dealership? The choice is yours really. What you should know though is that going to a local locksmith about a new car key is going to cost you a lot less than if you went to a dealership. What’s more, a locksmith can meet you at your location if need be.
Before you contact a locksmith about a new key, you need to know what key you have.
Not all car keys are the same and knowing your car make and model will tell you what type of key you need to duplicate. Basically, your locksmith will want to know whether your car uses a traditional key, a transponder key, or a key FOB.
You can now arrange for a locksmith to meet you at your location or you can drive directly to their store. Just make sure you have the necessary paperwork on hand before you meet with a local locksmith. To create a new car key, your locksmith will require your vehicle’s VIN (vehicle identification number) and proof of ownership.
If you can’t prove the car is yours, a reputable locksmith cannot assist you with a key copy.
Creating a new car key doesn’t take long, so you won’t need to take much time out of your day at all, provided you’ve chosen a reputable and experienced locksmith. In terms of the cost of the key copy, this depends on the type of key you require.
