Choosing a locksmith to copy your auto keys.
The fact is that not all car locksmiths are the same. It would be great if they all subscribed to the same codes and high standards of practice as we do at Multi Locksmith. The next best thing is for us to show you what you need to look for when you are selecting a car locksmith to copy car keys for you.
Ensure that the locksmith is familiar with your make and model of vehicle. This should be one of the first questions you ask in determining the suitability of a car locksmith. Every car lock and key is different according to the model of car – make sure this locksmith has produced keys for
your type of car before. Don’t be shy and feel free to ask to see samples if possible, to get an idea of the quality they produce.
Work Only with Professionals
Only approach a specialist, certified, insured and bonded car locksmith: In the same way that you wouldn’t go to a foot doctor for brain surgery, don’t ask a residential locksmith to cut auto keys and expect a good result. They skill and requirements of the different locksmith fields are not the same. Although there are some locksmith companies which successfully conduct multidisciplinary business, most (of the best) have separate locksmith divisions for automotive, residential and commercial considerations, which each being a respective specialist of his own field.
Ask what kind of machinery the locksmith uses to copy auto keys. Is it automatic, semi- automatic, blade, or laser? You want the most precise and sharp cut possible for your car keys as repeated use of poorly cut keys can damage your lock or even snap off inside the lock. The same goes for the materials – you want quality, even if that comes at a more expensive price.
With car keys, if you buy cheap unfortunately you buy (at least) twice. Get more information about auto keys duplication provided by our Locksmiths in El Cerrito
