When people think of a professional auto locksmith, they think of emergency calls by people who accidentally locked their keys inside their vehicle by whatever strange fluke of luck, nature, or security system fail. While this is not necessarily untrue (and honestly vastly undercutting the number of these calls we constantly receive), these are not the only services a professional auto locksmith provides.
Rather than trying to sell you a laundry list of potential features that we could provide to you with our emergency lock out teams, we're going to cover some of the little known things about auto locksmiths that might end up saving you a lot of time and money.
While professional locksmiths provide rescue in emergency car lockouts, replace and duplicate keys, and sometimes even program remote control vehicle keys, other services are offered such as installations and repairs of your automobile security systems, or your ignition cylinder.
The ignition cylinder is the thing that can save many people much time, money and heart ache. Let's say you have your car key but your ignition won't turn over. Most people immediately think of going to the mechanic. A mechanic may spend hours and pricey sums of your money for his time figuring out the issue with the ignition cylinder and replacing it. An auto locksmith is much more suited specifically to this type of task and handles these issues on the regular. Ignitions vary from vehicle to vehicle. Give us a call if your car's ignition won't turn and we can discuss causes, options, and resolutions.
If you didn't opt to have a security system installed in your vehicle, you may have had the misfortune of a theft or break-in. In the incident that you recovered your vehicle, thieves tend to prove as not the most charming lads and often leave the vehicles damaged. Certain types of damages can be repaired by an automobile locksmith. This will spare you excess charges with a pricy body shop and a pricier mechanic.
Even if your car needs the level of repair that requires body and engine repair, do not take the inevitability as the only route you have for repairing your damaged locks. An automobile locksmith would gladly take care of this for you at a far simpler wait time and price than the average body shop.
