GMC Car Key Replacement
San Antonio, TX
So You Need a New Key
The moment when you realize that the key to your GMC is not where it should be is a moment of panic. Nine times out of ten, the key is just buried in the bottom of your purse, or lost in a different pocket, or you left it in the house because you were in a rush. But sometimes, that key is actually inside your car, and you’re locked out. Or, even worse, the key is really missing. Of course, in times past a key that was stuck on the inside of your car while you were still outside was not a huge problem. If you could get your hands on coat hanger and a little bit of luck, you could get inside your car and retrieve the key without a problem. Of course, this always brought up the idea of how easy it would be for someone else to do the same with your car. However, modern technology keeps on progressing, making our cars safer and less susceptible to break-ins. What this means for you, though, is that getting your key out of your car when you’re locked out is not a job you can do on your own. Calling the GMC dealership means spending money, and usually a lot more than you want to. When all else fails, it’s time to call in your local experts in locks and keys. At San Antonio Locksmith, we can save your trapped key (or make a new one) at a much more reasonable price than the dealership will offer.

Why Are Car Keys So Expensive?
Getting a replacement key for your older model GMC is a much easier task than for a newer model. Why is it that key replacement in recent years has become such an expensive task? With an older model car, all that the dealership or locksmith needs to make a replacement key is the vehicle identification number (VIN). You could have a new key in a relatively short time, and the cost is much cheaper. However, with modern cars this is no longer the case. Safety has become a huge issue, with many people breaking into cars and taking everything you have inside or, even worse, taking the entire car! New resources were required to battle these crimes and keep the consumer’s belongings and vehicle safe and sound. The response from modern technology was astounding. Newer keys are now imbedded with an electronic microchip. This chip communicates directly with the car. If not properly programmed, the car will not accept this key, and then you’ll be stuck with something as useless as having no key at all. This is good when it comes to security, but bad when it comes to replacement keys. Because of an increasing drive toward new technology, a replacement key can cost upwards of $300 from the dealership. But at Lone Star Lock and Key, you can get your key replaced or retrieved for a price that is much more reasonable, and the work will be done by professionals whose business is locks and keys.
