How Car Key Replacements Are Made?
It’s not difficult for a quality car locksmith to make a replacement key of any kind. That’s especially true when it comes to a car key.
What you might not realize is your car manufacturer maintains a database of key specs for each car they manufacture. As long as your locksmith technician has access to your VIN #, they can get access to the manufacturer’s database and hence, the key’s specs. With that spec in hand, they only need to pick the right key stock, enter the key’s specs into the key-cutting equipment and within minutes, a new key is ready.
How Long Does It Take To Get a Car Key Replaced?
From the moment you contact one of our locksmith technicians and they arrive at your location, it won’t take much time to make a replacement key. If they have an original, they can go through the whole process in a matter of minutes. Without the original, it would take a little longer.
They would need time to find the VIN #, contact the manufacturer’s database, and secure the key specs. After that, it’s business as usual, and a key is ready in minutes.
Note: Making the right key fob replacement might take a bit longer, requiring the locksmith to find the right device while allowing an hour or so of programming.
