Tips before Buying a Car Key Replacement

Postby kingkong » Tue Feb 28, 2012 8:30 am

1. It’s expensive to replace the car key for newer model vehicles.

2. A more economical option is to buy your replacement car keys from a locksmith. They have the same key programmer as the dealership but will charge up to half the price to replace your key. As with a car dealership, the most important part of getting your car key replaced is making sure the chip inside the key is programmed properly. Make sure you test your key several times before leaving the locksmith or as soon as you get home with your new car key. Call the locksmith immediately if you have any problems unlocking the door or starting the car. If the car does not start it may mean there was a problem with the programming or even the cutting of the key and you will need to get the replacement car key replaced as soon as possible.

3. Make sure it’s a reputable dealership or locksmith when you want to order car key replacement ONLINE.
Ordering a programmed replacement car key online is possible, and can be much cheaper. But you have to check online reviews of the company you are purchasing your keys from, to make sure if they are believable.

4. Search around and get prices from multiple dealers and locksmiths.
When you buy car key replacements for your car it is like shopping for anything else. Find the best price from the most reputable company and you will find yourself with a replacement car key at a great price.

Good luck.
