So you lost your car keys? Be prepared to pay good money for a replacement.

10 years ago when I knew nothing about car keys I thought these items cost, well $1, $2 perhaps? And I was partially right. First, the implementation of security systems like transponder, chip, RFID, was not widely spread through all car makes and models. Secondly, I already had a key, so getting a spare key was only a matter of going to any locksmith with the capabilities of coping keys. It did in fact cost me about a buck to get a spare key back then. That was no longer the case 4 years later when I lost my Ford F-250 key.

The replacement of this car key cost me an outstanding $253. This is when my research on the matter begun.

Through my work as a mechanic, I have established good relationships with reputable locksmith companies. Here is some good information I have learned and hope helps you find the best solution that works for you:

It is better to prevent than cure

The cost of a replacement car key is usually way higher than a spare car key (when you actually have one working key and just need a copy).

Get a second key now; if you lose the only one you have, a new car key costs in average about double because it is more difficult for a locksmith to get the bitting or cutting specs for your vehicle.

A good place to get spare car keys is by calling your local Edmonton auto locksmith. Specialized locksmiths have a greater selection of transponder, VATS, PATS, and laser car keys. They use the VIN# or key code to make the car keys.

Know your key code

What is a key code? A key code is a number or string of characters that tells special machinery how to cut a key. Each car key has its own unique key code. Having the key code will save you money when using the services of a locksmith because it facilitates their job.

Save the number now as all car makers have limits of how far back in years they have key codes saved in their systems making it impossible for you to find it once your car reaches certain age.
