Almost everyone, at one time of their life or another, has lost their car keys or have broken them. If you have dropped your keys and don’t know where to find them, have bent your key so it doesn’t fit in your lock, or have broken it entirely, you may need to find a locksmith to get a new pair of keys made. Needing new keys may seem stressful when you don’t know who to turn to or where to go. The best answer is to find a locksmith.
If you have lost your car keys or you have broken them, you will need a car key replacement as quickly as possible. Both locksmiths and car dealerships can make you a new set of keys, even if you have lost the original pair and it won’t take as long as you think it might. Locksmiths can make a new key by hand with a file if the key is no longer available to duplicate. Depending on the type of key, it will only take ten to thirty minutes for the locksmith to craft you a new key so you can get on your way.
Although you can go to a locksmith or a car dealership to get a car key replacement, there are many reasons why you should turn to a locksmith rather than a dealership. Depending on the type of key you need to have replaced, it will be cheaper and quicker to call a locksmith than to turn to a dealership. Also, if you have lost your keys and can’t drive yourself to the dealership, it can cause more hassle than it’s worth to try and find a ride or have your car towed than it would be to have a locksmith drive to your location and make you a new key.
The price for a car key replacement can vary based on your car or the type of key you have, but at Allen’s Locksmith, we promise fair prices no matter what kind of key you need. It doesn’t matter if you have a normal key or one with a chip in it, we can get it made in no time and at an affordable price. Similar to how the price will depend on the kind of key you need, it will also vary depending on if you need to have the key duplicated or if the locksmith will have to cut a new one. It is easier for a locksmith to duplicate your key than it would be for them to make one from scratch, so it will be more expensive if you lose your key rather than needing a duplication. Although it will cost more, it will still be cheaper to get a car key replacement done by a locksmith than it would be to get a replacement at a car dealership. Car dealerships have a larger overhead than a small-business such as a locksmith company, so they will charge more per hour than a locksmith would. To avoid the high costs of a car dealership, you need to call a locksmith like Allen’s Locksmith.
After losing or breaking your key, you may be wondering how to get your car key replacement. A dealership may be too far away from you and if you don’t have access to your car keys, it may feel impossible for you to find the dealership. If you call a locksmith, they can bring the blank key straight to you wherever you are, as opposed to having to catch a ride to a dealership or having your car towed so they can cut you a replacement key. Calling a locksmith to come to your location when you need a car key replacement will not only save you money but will save you time.
