Car Keys Replacement & Duplicate
The same problem exists if you need to replace a lost or damaged device. Either the car dealer or a certified locksmith with the proper training. The expertise necessary is much greater than it was in years past for making a substitution for vehicles.
Returning to the dealer for a substitute will cost significantly more mainly because most dealerships must order the parts and can only commit to the work if done at their location. Oftentimes your vehicle will be on the waiting list behind many other service repairs the shop is currently handling. Also, most dealerships will insist your vehicle be towed to their location using their towing vehicle. This can add even more significant fees to the overall cost.
With a wait time possible of several days or more, you have only a few options for transportation. Taxi, bus, rent a vehicle, ride a bike or walk. Except for walking, all these options will also significantly add to the cost of having your vehicle lock repaired.
Experience you can Trust
Not all locksmith companies are created equal. Some companies will use low-grade generic parts as a substitution with your vehicle. This could very likely leave you venerable to a break-in or even worse. A stolen vehicle. The lower grade technology used by many of the non-professional unlicensed companies can make it easy for a thief to get past the locks and security system of your automobile. That is not all. It also can leave you at risk of being stranded a second time due to the same problem. Because you cannot access your vehicle simply because your device or remote suddenly stopped working. It can also be because someone deliberately hijacked your remote and erased the programming.
