• Should You Get Your Car Keys Repaired at a Locksmith or Dealership?

    keysWhen you need your car keys duplicated or replaced, do you head to the car dealership or call the locksmith? While some people’s first inclination is to head to the dealership, you should consider calling a locksmith instead. Car locksmiths specialize in replacing car keys and typically provide more affordable and convenient services than auto dealerships. Here’s why you should call an auto locksmith to replace your keys.

    Cost: Car dealerships usually charge twice or even triple the price to replace your keys compared to locksmiths. If you want to save on your key replacement, then you should go with an experienced and reputable auto locksmith instead. You’ll save money that can be allocated toward other car repairs.

    Time-savings: Especially if you’ve lost or broken your original key, you can’t wait long for a replacement. Without a key in hand, you can’t use your car. This puts a burden on your daily life, as many people can’t get to work or school without their car. An auto locksmith can get your replacement key to you in a day or two or even within a few hours, depending on the specifics of the situation.

    Convenience: Car issues can arise when you least expect them. Should you have problems with your key after usual business hours, an auto locksmith is available to help.
