Car key Cutting - Prices are competitive and service is professional
Car key cutting is usually offered by car dealerships and general locksmiths. However, using an automotive locksmith specialised in this service is the ideal choice for you. There will always be situations where having a spare car key will come in handy. Suppose you get locked out of your car with the key in the ignition, or you misplace your keys and simply cannot find them, or it so happens that your car key is either bent or broken. In such situations, you can easily use the spare one and save yourself a lot of trouble.
Cutting a new key might also be a good idea if your current one is nearly the end of its service life, and UK Auto Locksmith provides professional services at affordable prices for all your car key needs.
Cutting a spare car key?
Older car models have keys that are easy to replicate. The newer models though, have car locking systems that vary from model to model and also have unique security features. Remote car locking systems, for example, use transponder chips that would have to be coded to the car. For the newer models we offercar lockout service, car ignition switch, etc.
In light of this, car key cutting prices are likely to be more expensive than expected for many automobile owners. Dealerships tend to charge unreasonable amounts for the parts used to cut a new car key. Dealer ship could take about 5-10 working days to get your keys received while we doing it all on spot within the hour!
However, choosing a specialist in car key cutting and programming, like UK Auto Locksmith, would ensure that you save on the expense while also receiving quality services. The competitive pricing model is available to all customers so they get to have a new car key cut without it burning a hole through their pocket.
Transponder key cutting AND PROGRAMMING
While old generations of vehicles have metal keys that can be easily cut by pretty much anyone who has a key cutting machine within reach (and if that person happens to be an experienced specialist, he might even be able to read the necessary code that should be carved in the metal part of the key by simply looking at a key or at its photo), Transponder keys also require an electronic chip programming job to be done.
That electronic chip communicates with the car’s ignition in order to verify that the key that is being used is really an original key (or a professionally made copy of it, produced by an authorized auto locksmith technician) and not a fake duplicate. Our specialists at UK Auto Locksmith have the necessary knowledge, software and hardware that is needed in order to provide Transponder programming services for all makes and models of cars.
