Locking yourself out of your vehicle is never fun. Maybe the keys are locked inside the car, or you misplaced your keys and need a replacement key to be made. Calling an automotive locksmith will get you back on the road fast.
Here are some of the tops of calling an automotive locksmith vs. going to your local dealership.
Key Replacement is Faster and Cheaper Than a Dealership
If you misplace or lose your keys, you may be thinking “I need to call the dealership.” Dealerships are expensive, they take longer to replace your key and they’re out-of-the-way.
You have to go to the dealership without your vehicle.
Locksmiths can help you enter the vehicle (something dealerships may not offer) to retrieve your key. If the key is missing and needs to be replaced, a locksmith may offer car key replacement (we do).
We’re able to replace and program car keys for many vehicles.
Convenience of Working With a Specialist
Specialists get the job done faster. You don’t have to pay the added expense of having your vehicle towed when calling a locksmith. A locksmith will come to you. As a specialist, a locksmith is able to open your vehicle faster than a dealership.
You don’t have to:
- Tow your vehicle
- Wait for a ride
- Schedule an appointment
Locksmiths know that you didn’t schedule locking your keys inside of your vehicle into your day. When you call, the specialist will tell you to wait with your vehicle while assistance is on the way.
Reprogram Broken Smart Key Fobs
Smart key fobs work great, and they’re a nice option until an electrical or mechanical issue causes your key fob or smart key to stop working. Replacing the batteries is the first recommendation, or try using your spare to see if the key fob works.
If the key fob is still not responding, a local automotive locksmith can replace and program a new key fob, smart key, or head key for your vehicle.
There’s no need to go to a dealership and wait around for hours to have your smart key fob reprogrammed.
The Shop Comes to You
A mobile locksmith brings their entire shop to you. If you need to have a key fob or a transponder chip reprogrammed, a mobile locksmith will have the tools available to assist you.
There’s no need to go to a brick-and-mortar location.
Damaged key locks or broken keys can be fixed, or a specialist can unlock the vehicle so that you can get the keys out of the ignition. When our mobile shop comes to you, we bring all of the tools and equipment necessary to get the job done quickly and affordably.
