My car key stopped turning in my ignition do i have to get it towed to a mechanic?
No, a common job for a mobile locksmith is driving to somebody stranded to fix a seized ignition. I stock a ton of ignitions in my van that are known to fail, such as Ford, Chrysler, and Chevy, and have the ability to make your old keys still work in the new switch. Ignitions you buy at auto part stores usually cost more, are already keyed to some random key that won’t match your door and if the car is equipped with a transponder key, won’t start the car. Some other common ignition issues like Toyota’s, I can usually repair on site without even needing to replace the ignition. Whatever ignition problem you’re having chances are I have seen it before and know the best possible way to fix it.
My only key broke off and its stuck inside my lock what should I do?
Whatever you do don’t use superglue!

I promise you it doesn’t work, and It will destroy your lock. I have specially designed broken key extractors and can almost always extract the broken key. Once I have both pieces of your key I can enter the cuts of your key into my computer and it will originate you a brand new key, problem solved.
Can you just make me a key to my car off the VIN Number?
I do have the ability to get a key code for some cars from your cars vin #, ownership verification is required and the proper paperwork must be filled out, code databases aren’t always accurate and there is no guarantee that the code purchased will work. In most cases it is more cost effective and %100 guaranteed for me to drive out to the location of the vehicle to make a key for your car.
