Phoenix 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.
What is the procedure for replacing my car keys?
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.
Your second and least expensive option is to try to replace your own car keys. It's important that you know exactly what you're doing and that you buy or rent the proper tools to do so. If you try to guess the instructions or use the wrong set of tools, you could end up with damaged keys that could eventually cause widespread damage to the ignition or an outside lock.
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?
Absolutely. When you call us, we send a trustworthy locksmith to your location who will finish the job promptly. We are also happy to offer an unconditional satisfaction guarantee. If you buy equipment from a third-party seller, there's no guarantee that it's not defective and that the person isn't just out to make a quick buck. It's also a big advantage to paying too much for this service at an auto dealership.
Do I need to present my original key before you can create a new one?
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.
Can you still cut me a new key if the original is very damaged or I no longer have it?
There's no need to worry that you won't be able to get a new key if you can't produce the original in good shape. Advanced technology makes it possible to create a new key for your car without physically holding the old key. A locksmith from We will first verify that you're the rightful owner of your car. The next step is to find the vehicle identification number on the car window or documentation and use that to make a new key for you.

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.
