Standard Car Key Replacement
Although electronic keys are becoming more and more popular, there are still plenty of vehicles on the road today that still use traditional keys. These types of keys are the easiest to replace, as it simply requires us to cut a new key for you. If you have lost your keys, we can use your lock to create a new key that is a perfect fit. However, you may prefer to rekey the lock instead, fitting it with a brand new key, so that there is no risk of someone else getting a hold of your old keys and stealing your car.
Remote Head and Transponder Key Cutting
Many vehicles also use transponder keys or remote head keys. In addition to having a standard metal key, these types of keys also have internal chips and transmitters. With remote head keys, you can lock and unlock your vehicle remotely, though you’ll still need to stick the key into the ignition to start the engine. Transponder keys may or may not include remote access, but they offer added security when starting up your vehicle. A chip inside the key signals to your car that it is, in fact, the correct key and not an unauthorized copy. While these types of keys are a bit more complex to duplicate, our team can handle it.

This way, no one will be able to use your lost keys to get into your car or steal it. Although this operation is a bit complex, we do everything we can to keep our smart car key replacement cost as affordable as possible, and we can definitely save you money over having the job done at a car dealership.
