The Importance of Regular Car Key Maintenance

by | Jan 8, 2023 | Car Locksmith Services, Locksmith Services

Most of us have experienced a lost key at some point in our lives. Car keys in particular are also extremely susceptible to wear and tear. If your key breaks or your keyless entry system stops working, what then? Well, luckily we can help! Here are some reasons why regular car key maintenance is important.

Why You Should Update Your Car Keys

You might not think about it, but your car keys can be a pain to replace—and they’re often expensive. The average cost of a new key is around $50 or more, depending on the make and model of your vehicle. And if you’re locked out? That could be even more expensive as you have to pay for someone to let you in and then re-program your new key. Not to mention the fact that car keys can potentially wear out over time and cause damage to your locks or worse, your ignition.

We here at Fixed Rate Locksmith can help to prevent you from having to experience this stressful and costly situation and provide you with the peace of mind that your vehicle’s key and locks are up to date, maintained, and in pristine condition. Our technicians are trained professionals with many years of experience and expertise in their field. With our many unique services, you can rest assured that we can help to resolve any and all problems regarding your vehicle’s locks and key (even if you might not think there is one.)

If you want to ensure that your car keys and the locks on your vehicle are in good working order, it’s important to have them checked regularly by a professional. Our expert technicians have seen and worked on all sorts of keys and vehicles and they are able to notice wear and tear that might not seem very noticeable to the untrained eye, but can still have the potential to cause your locks or ignition serious damage. Give us a call today at (702) 858-2448 and we can have one of our expert locksmiths at your location quickly to examine the key for wear, examine the vehicles locks and ignition for damage, repair the ignition or vehicle locks if any damage has occurred and make you a new key to ensure that no further damage occurs.

If all else fails, we have access to remote programming equipment that will allow us to create a working key from scratch.
