There are many things in life that are unknown. Where does that second sock go? Is a hot dog a sandwich? Is the dress black and blue or white and gold? One thing we do know for sure is that life doesn’t go as planned sometimes, especially when it comes to your car keys.

If you’ve lost your car keys and need them replaced, you might need automotive door lock repair services. But how much do you know about these services, really? Did you know there are higher-security keys than the one that came from the factory? Did you also know you don’t need to tow your car when you locks fail? Read on to learn about these and other facts you might not know about auto door lock repair.

1. You Don’t Need to Tow Your Vehicle

When you lock your keys in your car, many people correctly assume you can call a locksmith and get the situation resolved. But what happens when you lose your keys entirely? Don’t you have to call the tow truck to move your vehicle, since you can’t operate the vehicle without the key? No, actually. A locksmith who specializes in automotive door lock repair can address your problem on-site, which brings us to point number two…

2. Keys Can Be Cut and Programmed On-Site

Whether it’s a personal vehicle that you own or a rental car, the best locksmiths can travel to you and make keys on-location. Thanks to state-of-the-art equipment and years of experience/training, physical keys can be laser-cut and electronic keys can be programmed right there on the spot. In many cases, this is even cheaper than if you took your car to the dealership to replace your lost car key.

3. There Are Both Factory Key and High-Security Key Options

Did you also know that there are higher-security key options than the ones you got from the factory? That’s one of the benefits of using a locksmith to replace your keys. A locksmith’s entire world is security and the best ones will have access to high-security laser-cut keys and programmed keys. They’re also guaranteed to work each time, every time for the life of your vehicle.
