Locksmith Vs. Dealership

Nothing disrupts your day like losing your car keys. Whether it’s your first time misplacing them or you habitually lose things, car keys are probably the most frustrating thing to lose. If you’ve already retraced your steps and they haven’t turned up, you’ll need to find a way to replace them as soon as possible. So, should you go to the dealership where you bought the car or head to a local locksmith? Today on the blog, Miles Towing Service covers both options.

Locksmith Vs. Dealership


Dealerships absolutely have the tools necessary to replace your lost car keys. In fact, you don’t even have to go to the original dealership where you bought your car from. Any dealership should be able to help you based on the make and model of your car. However, before you head to a dealership, there are a few things to consider. A dealership will likely be more expensive, take longer, and be a less convenient way to get your car keys back in your hand. Because dealerships serve a high number of customers a day, lower priority clients may get pushed to the end of the line. It’s not hard to see why a salesman may want to potentially make a big sale rather than cut a new key for you. If you’re looking for a quick fix, a locksmith might be a better answer.


It’s possible that not everyone knows this- but a locksmith is fully qualified to make new keys for your car. An auto locksmith isn’t just there to help when you lock your keys in your car, they can also help when you’ve lost them altogether. In fact, auto locksmiths are extremely versatile and can do a great job at keeping up with the latest car technologies and trends. Whether you need a basic key cut or a new transponder programmed, your locksmith can get the job done. Even better, a local locksmith such as Miles Towing Service will be able to devote more time to your needs, be more convenient, and more cost effective- getting you back on the road as quickly as possible.
