What is a VIN Cut Key?
If you’ve lost all of the keys to your car – a VIN cut key is your only option. This is because if there is no key to copy, an original factory key has to be made. We are licensed to cut VIN cut keys. A VIN cut key is a new key that is cut to the original factory specifications of the locks on the car.
After The Key is Cut
Most new keys have to be programmed before they will start the car. Programming is a process where the electronic part of the key (which is often encased inside the plastic head of the key) is registered to the car’s computer. This is an anti-theft feature and is standard on most cars today.
Do I Have To Tow My Car?
We’ll come to your car – wherever it is in the greater Summerville / Charleston area and program the key to start your car. This eliminates your need to tow the vehicle. Some companies require that you tow the car to them for programming. Towing can cause costly damage to a vehicle, why take that risk if you don’t have to? Instead, have one of our fast, reliable technicians come to you.
As licensed locksmiths, we take our responsibility to the community seriously. This is one reason why we must receive Proof of Ownership before we will provide keys to a car that has none. Proof of Ownership usually consists of a valid Driver’s License and vehicle registration or title. We only release VIN cut keys to the registered owner of a vehicle.
Preventing Lost Car Key Issues
The best way to ensure you are never stuck without a way to start your car is to have a duplicate car key. Having a spare key at home will prevent this frustrating situation and will save you money in the long run. That is why, if you’re down to just one key, it is urgent to get a duplicate of your car key.
