Have you recently purchased a new car? Are you planning to re-key your car? There are several situations when re-keying your vehicle is recommended. Here are some of the reasons why we recommend re-keying your car:
Re-key a Car After an Accident
Auto accidents are known for damaging several internal components of a vehicle. Re-keying the locks after an accident is recommended as the locks may have been damaged in the collision. We specialize in re-keying car locks throughout Northern Utah. If your vehicle has recently been in an accident, contact our Ogden locksmith office to schedule a re-key appointment. We do have mobile locksmith services and can bring our expertise to your home or office.
Re-key an Auction Car
If you recently purchased a car sold at auction, we recommend re-keying the vehicle for your safety and protection. Many of the auction cars are sold to third parties and then sold once again. Re-keying the locks on your vehicle is a simple way to prevent theft due to the number of people the keys and vehicle have been exposed to over the years.
Re-key a Car Following Theft
Vehicles that have been recently stolen should be re-keyed. There is always a chance a copy of the key could have been made when the vehicle was stolen. Replacing the locks allows the car to be secured once again. Depending upon the vehicle theft case, your auto insurance company may cover the cost of vehicle locksmith services to replace the locks and keys.
Re-key Following a Breakup or Separation
We recommend everyone change the vehicle locks if another person has a key and can access the car without your permission. If your ex will not return the keys, or you do not trust them, it is a simple way to ensure you will stay safe and protected.
Re-key a Car Following a Home Break-in
Has your home been broken into? It is a wise idea to replace all the locks on your home, but your vehicle as well. Thieves may have taken spare keys and can still gain access to your car or home at any time.
Without keys that are programmed and cut correctly, your car will not be able to start. We recommend the replacement of car locks with professional car locksmith services.
