4 Reasons to Choose a Locksmith for Auto Key Duplication

Posted on August 4, 2020 by A-1

When it comes to our vehicles, we can get tricked into thinking the dealer or auto mechanics are the only ones who should be working on them. The truth is, your car is the resulting work of several different industries and specialties. Security is one of them.

Also, did you know that going to a locksmith instead of a car dealership to duplicate your car keys is more affordable? We’ll cover this reason and three others you should choose a locksmith for auto key duplication in this blog post.

1. It’s More Affordable

For starters, every service at a dealership is typically more expensive than if you went somewhere else. This makes sense in a way, as the dealer handles components directly from car brands and wants to protect the value of its brand and the cars it sells. But you don’t need to pay Ferrari prices for a Honda-level need. An auto locksmith can duplicate keys of any kind and give you a cheaper option that saves you money.

2. There Are More Options

Speaking of options, you don’t have to stick with the same key when you choose a locksmith for auto key duplication. A dealer might not give you any choice in the matter, but an auto locksmith will give you the option to upgrade to a high-security key, key fob or another type of car key. You can even make an extra spare key, if you so desire. 

3. It Can Be Faster

It’s often also more convenient and faster to choose a locksmith instead of a dealer for auto key duplication. Not only can a locksmith travel to your location if you need a key duplicated, they can help if you’re locked out of your vehicle and get you back on the road faster. At a dealership, you might have to wait for other customers and it usually takes much longer.

4. There’s More Peace of Mind

When it comes to car keys, you can expect the same level of quality from a locksmith that you would from a dealership. In fact, you might experience more peace of mind, as a locksmith lives and breathes security, whereas a dealer focuses on all aspects of vehicle buying, selling and maintenance. You can trust that the key you’re getting from a locksmith will be of high quality.
