Milwaukee CAR KEY REPLACEMENT
Everyday wear and tear can cause the teeth of your car keys not to match the lock mechanism and then fail to open or start your car. If the key isn't quite as worn yet, it will usually still work but it may take several tries. When this happens, it's a good sign that you should contact a professional locksmith and have them create you a new set of keys. The danger in not doing so is that the keys will continue to wear down and you will eventually find yourself locked out of your vehicle or unable to start it. Losing access to your own vehicle is a hassle. Fortunately, you can prevent it by taking a proactive approach to key management.
Frequently Asked Questions
What do I need to do to replace my car keys?
You can approach this issue in one of several different ways. The first is to take your current set of keys to the dealership where you bought the car and ask them to cut replacement keys for you. They should be able to do this without problem, although it may cost more than you were expecting to pay. Unfortunately, high repair or replacement prices are a common problem at auto dealerships.
Another way you can handle this is by attempting to replace car keys on your own. While this is the least expensive option, keep in mind that you need the right tools as well as the proper instructions to avoid making the wrong key or a key that will ultimately damage your vehicle.
Your final option, and the one that we highly recommend, is to contact us and request that we dispatch a mobile locksmith technician to your current location. Upon arrival, he or she will create a replacement set of keys for you. This costs a bit more than attempting the job yourself and not as much as going to a dealership. You have the added bonus of knowing that we guarantee our work.
What is the advantage of working with a professional locksmith for car key replacement?
We strongly believe that working with our company provides the most effective option at the most affordable price. The danger in not doing so is that you may encounter a third-party seller who provides you with defective equipment. As mentioned above, going to an auto dealership for this service can blow your budget in a hurry.
Do I need to present my original key before you can create a new one?
No, it isn't necessary for you to have your original key for us to create a new one although it speeds up the process. It's easy enough for us to duplicate your key without needing to look at the original key to find a code. If you can provide your original key, it proves ownership of your car if you currently use a fob without metal blades.
What if my original key is too damaged or I lost it?
You don't need to feel concerned about receiving a replacement car key if you no longer have the original. Thanks to advances in technology, locksmiths no longer need to have a physical copy of the key that requires replacement. An employee simply needs to verify that you own the vehicle. Once we do that, we can use your unique vehicle identification number to create a key for your vehicle.
We’ll replace your car key after we extract
Please don't try to pull a broken key out of the ignition of your car or from one of its doors. Without the proper training and equipment, you can cause significant damage to your lock or key. Even other locksmiths can cause this type of damage, but you don't have to worry about that as a customer. Our locksmiths use their extensive training and experience to carefully extract your key without causing damage to any other part of your vehicle.
We hope you can see why it's in your best interest to contact our company to have key extraction performed by a professional and qualified auto locksmith technician rather than attempt it on your own.

Although you're within your rights to expect it, sometimes it's a frustrating waste of time to argue with someone to do the right thing. Our company can fix the error while saving you time and money in the process.
