Car Key Replacements
Our skilled auto locksmiths have decades of experience cutting and programming sets of car keys. Whatever make or model you drive, and whether you have a remote, transponder, or manual key, we can create a replacement for you. We have a stock of all major key blanks and can usually provide you with a replacement set while you wait.
If your keys have been stolen, there is always a possibility – however slim – that the thief will attempt to steal your car as well. Luckily, this is easily countered by having one of our experienced auto locksmiths reprogram the key. This fits an entirely new security protocol into the key and your locks, rendering the original set useless.
With most modern cars, you don’t need to change the locks if your keys are lost or stolen. Reprogramming the keys ensures that whomever has the original set will not be able to access your vehicle with it. With older manual locks, this is not the case. We may need to replace the barrel of the lock and ignition.
Naturally, we don’t just turn up to an empty car and begin cutting and programming keys for you. We need proof of identity and proof of ownership before we can proceed. This includes the Vehicle Identification Number from your log book, and any form of ID that includes a photograph, name, and address, so we can confirm vehicle ownership.
There are many reasons to choose us for your car key replacement needs. Here are some of the most common ones based on feedback from our customers…
