How Do I Get A New Key For My Car?

Misplaced your vehicle key? Need a duplicate key? The first thing that you should do is call an automotive locksmith or the dealership. 

Automotive Locksmith 

Automotive locksmiths carry a large array of car keys and fobs for emergency jobs. Locksmiths are also usually cheaper than the dealership. They might have the key or fob that you need on hand or will be able to order it for you. It is important to know the type of key that your vehicle needs. Some vehicles require special programming equipment. Your vehicle might need a metal, chipped/transponder, fobik, proximity/smart, or a remote head key. Make sure to provide the locksmith with the year, make, and model of your vehicle. You will also need registration/title and a valid driver’s license. Most automotive locksmiths offer a mobile service and can come to your location. You can receive service from a locksmith in as low as 10 minutes! If you need a vehicle key or fob in Oahu, Hawaii, give The Key Fob And Remote Shop a call at 808-435-5804 for service and cutting/programming fees. If you are located outside of Oahu, Hawaii, check out our website for our low priced car key deals! 

The Dealership

You might not have a locksmith in your area to make the key that you need for your vehicle and you will have to contact the dealership. Dealerships are not usually known for mobile services, so you will need to tow your vehicle to the dealership. Dealerships normally require appointments, so make sure to call before towing your vehicle. Dealerships require that you have your VIN, valid title/registration, and ID to make a new car key/fob.
