Mobile Locksmith Services in Houston, TX
Locks are made for a reason, to keep places like your home and your vehicle secure. It makes us feel safer, more in control — except when we are the ones locked out. For most locks, you don’t need to have the key in your hand in order for the door to lock. And if the key is on the inside, or gets lost somehow, you’ll be needing the services of a locksmith to get back in your home or vehicle. One of your best bets in this situation is calling a mobile locksmith.
Replacement Car Keys
Lost or broken auto keys can create a lot of chaos in your life in a very short time. Fortunately, it’s an easy problem for our mobile locksmiths to fix.
Lost your car keys entirely? Not a problem. As long as you have identification and proof of ownership, it’s possible for one of our locksmiths to fabricate new keys for you on site. This applies to both mechanical and electronic locks; new electronic key fobs and transponders can be programmed for you as well.
We can also extract broken keys for you. It’s normal for the teeth of keys to wear down over time, and eventually they may stop catching on the lock. You try to turn the key, the cylinder doesn’t turn with you, and the key snaps. Fortunately, we can extract broken keys and even rekey the lock if it is damaged.
Non-emergency replacement services are also available for all sorts of automotive keys as well. If you have a coded ignition key, you can simply provide us with the code and we can create the replacements for you at your convenience.
Replacement Key Fobs
Our automotive locksmiths can create new key fobs (the small electronic devices used to open the vehicle and start the engine) for many types of vehicles. If your car is more than a few years old, it’s quite possible that this could be a substantial savings over going to a dealer for a replacement.
Generally speaking, key fob programming usually doesn’t take more than 30 minutes or so. An additional replacement mechanical key can be created in under an hour.
New fob programming is all about the automotive manufacturer’s policies and security technology. The newer a car is and the more sophisticated security features it has, the more likely you will need either the dealer or a locksmith with that specific manufacturer’s certification to have a replacement fob made. Our technicians have certifications from a number of major manufacturers and we are always adding more. Replacement key fobs for older vehicles are usually quick and easy to make for skilled automotive technicians such as ours, and the cost is almost always far below what a dealer would charge.
How a Mobile Locksmith Can Help
More Flexible and Available
Mobile locksmiths have fewer restrictions. They are available 24/7, and they come to you. It doesn’t matter if it is the middle of the night or Saturday afternoon and the neighbors are peering out their windows. You can get help right away.
Can Make New Keys and Locks
While a standard locksmith keeps tools at the shop, a mobile locksmith has their tools of the trade with them when they are responding to a call. So, if your keys are NOT on the seat of your car or the kitchen table, and you need new ones made, they are able to make you new keys on the spot.
There’s also the possibility that you have given someone a key to your house that you no longer trust. If this has happened, and you need to change locks entirely, a mobile locksmith can quickly get you set with new locks.
Professionals You Can Trust
Not just anyone off the street gets to be a professional mobile locksmith, and there is an extensive training program that typically ends with certification by the Associated Locksmiths of America. In addition to training for a large range of locks, mobile locksmiths must also undergo a background check and testing to get their certifications.
Can a Mobile Locksmith Make an Ignition Key?
Yes, a mobile locksmith absolutely can make you a new ignition key for your car, truck or SUV. Some keys are of the traditional variety, and others are smart keys that operate with a chip. Sometimes keys just get jammed in the door or trunk. Whatever the situation, a mobile locksmith can help. If you still have a copy of your key somewhere and want an extra just in case you run into a difficult situation, you can get a duplicate key — even for smart keys. You can also get a key replacement as long as you can provide the vehicle VIN number, registration information, and proof of ownership.
