Is it possible for an automobile locksmith to make new car keys?

If you’re wondering, now is the best time to read all about it. The short answer is YES! A locksmith has the capability to make new car keys if they are provided with a VIN number.

Although there’s always the choice to visit a car dealership and get a new car key replacement on demand, there are plenty of costs involved.

For instance, obtaining a new car key will require you to use a towing service, cover the costs of key repair/replacement, and handle other additional expenses.

Moreover, most car dealerships often charge extra for bringing in an automobile locksmith. So, comparatively, the latter is a much better alternative.

Why Choose an Automobile Locksmith to Make New Car Keys? 

The answer is obvious; going to a dealership or getting your automobile towed will cost you a certain amount.

Instead of taking your car to a dealership for a key change or key replacement, you can simply reach out to a certified locksmith yourself and ask them to provide you with a fresh new set of keys at 50% less.

This way, you will save yourself from paying that extra 50% charge to a dealership for the process. Not only will you save costs from the dealership, but you will also save on towing.

What may cost you $500 can easily be cut in half or even less, depending on the job.

Do You Need an Original Car Key to Get a Replacement? 

For certain vehicle types, Yes. For others, you might not require an original key. All you will need is to provide the automobile locksmith with your vehicle’s specific VIN number and some other important knowledge about your vehicle.

Once you have provided the vehicle owner with the necessary information, they will provide you with the necessary replacement.

It’s totally understandable that you may have lost your original car key or maybe you had the original key with you but you don’t have it at the moment while you’re far away from home.

Either way, a certified locksmith can still provide you a car key!

Can a Locksmith Cut Any Car Key? 

Yes, a certified locksmith has the capability to cut just about any key easily. He has the necessary equipment always on the ready to perform a car key cut at any time.

They are well versed with the required knowledge on how to cut traditional car keys, make transponder keys, create car key fobs or perform similar jobs.

Whether you own a Toyota, Mercedes, GMC, Cadillac, Jeep, Lamborghini, Ferrari, Jaguar, Ford, Chevrolet, or any other major car brand, a trained and certified professional can easily cut any car key. 

Do I Need to Provide Proof? 

The short answer is yes. Many locksmith companies ask customers to provide proof of ownership of the vehicle, as well as the vehicle’s identification number (VIN), at the time of the job.

If you don’t carry the original key at all times or you’ve lost it completely, a locksmith is bound by the state to ask you to present the necessary paperwork, license, or insurance information to provide proof that you’re the owner.

The VIN code can easily be found anywhere on the dashboard or in the engine compartment.

It’s best to keep the information saved on your smartphone or somewhere accessible, so you don’t have to worry.
