Different Keys Require Different Solutions
A lost key can be a major hassle because it’s not just getting a key replacement, it also means doing damage control and making sure your lost key won’t cause more problems by not being an accurate key or not properly programmed.
If you happen to lose your key the first thing you should do is remember not to panic, as frustrating as this situation is, you will be able to find a solution to your problem.
Even if you have a spare key for the one you lost you should take the responsible precaution of re keying your locks. This will prevent a would-be thief trying to break into your house with your lost key that he or she has found.
The re keying of your locks is a relatively simple procedure which involves a professional locksmith slightly changing your existing locks so only a new key will open your lock. The re key service is a very inexpensive but very effective way of rendering your lost key useless.
If you have lost your transponder key and need a replacement you can usually save a little bit of money by finding a locksmith service that offers transponder and chip key replacements, instead of going back to your dealership for the car key replacement.
A locksmith will be able to make a copy of your original key by using the key code found in your driver’s manual. This code will give the locksmith the information he needs to create an exact key copy.
A lost key can really mess up your day but by knowing what to do and getting in touch with a professional locksmith, you can really keep your frustration down to a minimum.
