Louisville CAR KEY REPLACEMENT
Have you ever noticed that your key doesn't seem to fit quite right into your car door lock or ignition? One reason for this is that the teeth no longer matches up perfectly with the parts of the lock that should open and close after you insert the key. This can occur due to corrosion, dirt, dust, and just normal wear. The more severe the wear, the greater the likelihood that you won't be able to open or start your car. As soon as it starts to be a struggle, it's a good idea to contact a professional locksmith for repair or replacement. This can prevent you from becoming stranded when you can't start your car or getting locked out of it entirely.
How should I go about replacing the keys for my car?
You can approach this issue in one of several different ways. The first is to take your current set of keys to the dealership where you bought the car and ask them to cut replacement keys for you. They should be able to do this without problem, although it may cost more than you were expecting to pay. Unfortunately, high repair or replacement prices are a common problem at auto dealerships.
Your second and least expensive option is to try to replace your own car keys. It's important that you know exactly what you're doing and that you buy or rent the proper tools to do so. If you try to guess the instructions or use the wrong set of tools, you could end up with damaged keys that could eventually cause widespread damage to the ignition or an outside lock.
Your final option is to contact us to request that one of our experienced locksmiths replace your car keys for you. This will cost more than doing it yourself but less than taking your keys to a dealership. Most importantly, working with a skilled auto locksmith ensures that you receive a new set of keys that fits into your door lock or ignition without breaking or refusing to turn.
What are the benefits to working with a professional locksmith for key replacement?
Absolutely. When you call us, we send a trustworthy locksmith to your location who will finish the job promptly. We are also happy to offer an unconditional satisfaction guarantee. If you buy equipment from a third-party seller, there's no guarantee that it's not defective and that the person isn't just out to make a quick buck. It's also a big advantage to paying too much for this service at an auto dealership.
Are you unable to replace my keys if I don't have the original?

If you use a fob or keys without any type of metal blades, producing it does little more than prove you legitimately own the vehicle.
Can you still cut me a new key if the original is very damaged or I no longer have it?

Advanced technology makes it possible to create a new key for your car without physically holding the old key. A locksmith from We will first verify that you're the rightful owner of your car. The next step is to find the vehicle identification number on the car window or documentation and use that to make a new key for you.
