Two Solutions To Get A Car Key Replacement  

There are two ways to get a car key replacement if you've lost your keys. The first way is to go back to the dealership you purchased your car from. Of course, this is usually pricey and a longer process, as well as some dealerships, outsource this work to automotive locksmiths. The second one and the better option would be hiring an automotive locksmith for their car key replacement services. They have the tools required to make a new, duplicate key just like the one you've lost without the original key. They're also more affordable and provide fast and quality services. 

Before calling an automotive locksmith, however, you should know/have the information first:

  • Your Identification or ID
  • Your Location
  • Your Vehicle’s Year Model and Make
  • Your Vehicle’s Identification Number
  • Your Vehicle’s Registration

This information is vital when it comes to car key replacement. A professional car locksmith will never open or duplicate a car key without this information. It is to avoid crime and protect our business as well. If a car locksmith did not verify if you are the rightful owner of the vehicle, then you should be wary of that locksmith.

Why Car Key Replacement is Vital and Needs to be Addressed Immediately

Losing your car keys is no joke. It's either you forgot where you placed them or something more nefarious, someone stole them. San Rafael's property crime is one of the highest in the USA, and vehicle theft is top on the list. This is why if you've lost your car keys and you've spent hours searching for them, then calling a professional automotive locksmith must be your first choice when it comes to lost car key replacement.

Having your car key replaced is necessary for a several reasons. The first is that if you have lost your car keys, it means that you cannot access your vehicle. Without a key, you will be unable to drive home as well as unable to use your vehicle for work or other errands.

Tips on How to Avoid Losing Your Car Keys

Now that you've had a lost car key replacement service and you don't want to lose your car keys again this time, here are some tips by Tal-Niv Locksmith Services you should do to avoid this situation for the second time!

Attach your Car Keys to a Key Ring or Lanyard - We've all been there: for one reason or another, you find yourself searching for your car keys. Maybe you left them on the kitchen table. Maybe you left them on top of the dresser. Or maybe—and this is the worst—you left them in your car, which you parked at work or the mall, and now you have to retrace your steps to find them (or get a locksmith to open your car). If only there was a better way!

Luckily, there is: attach your car keys to a key ring or lanyard. Whether it's attached to your pants or shorts or kept with your house keys, keeping your car keys with something else will make sure that they're never lost. Just be sure to keep that key ring attached to your pants or shorts as well!

Keep your Car Free from Clutter - Nobody wants a dirty and messy car. Keeping your car free from clutter is a surefire way you can immediately find your car keys. So throw all those water bottles in the recycle bin and it'll save you time from searching for your car keys! The easiest way to keep your car clutter free is to clean up after yourself. 

You don't have to be a neat freak, just make sure you clean up after yourself every time you get into or out of your vehicle. Empty your pockets, throw away any wrappers, tear up old notes or other paper scraps, toss out any leftover trash, and put everything else in a bag so you can take it with you. When you're done driving and ready to leave, check the floor of your car one more time to make sure there isn't anything there that belongs elsewhere.

Invest in a Key Finder Device - If you invest in a key finder device, you'll never have to worry about losing your keys again! This gadget can be attached to your keys and with one press of a button on your phone, it'll beep and you'll know exactly where that pesky set of keys is hiding. It's affordable (usually ranging from $10-$30) and can be found in any online shopping store.
