Can be difficult to do if you don’t know where to go. If you are trying to get your house keys copied, you can probably have them copied at any hardware store close to you such as Home Depot, Lowes or Ace. You can even copy some keys at Wal mart. These stores can make you copies for about 90% of the keys out there. If you only need a couple of keys made, you should try them. The difference between these stores to a locksmith store, is that locksmiths can do a more accurate job coping keys for you. If you are looking to get a bunch of keys copied, we recommend you call us. We can copy each of the keys in the most accurate way. Cutting keys by code means to cut a key from numbers, (codes), without using an old key. We can make you a new key by code for your house, office, mailbox, file cabinet, motorcycle, car, truck and much more. Cutting a key by code is the most accurate way to make a new key. If you copy an old key, it really means you are coping a worn out key which may not be as accurate. When you make a new key by code, you are basically making keys as if it just came from the manufacturer. Sometimes when your lock or ignition doesn’t work it is because your key is worn out and a new key cut by code can resolve the problem.
Re-keying a lock
Mean cancelling the old key and making a new key operate the lock without changing the lock itself.
Getting new mailbox keys can be difficult. Many of our customers try to call the post office before they call us and ask for a new mailbox key. The post office doesn’t have this key. When the postman delivers mail to your mailbox, they use one key the open all the mailboxes at once. It basically opens all the mailbox doors as one big door and the small mailbox doors stay closed. This key cannot open your single mailbox lock. Most post offices will recommend that you call to a local locksmith.
Don't Get Ripped Off:
As a locksmith company that has been around for many years, we would like to give you a tip about shopping around for locksmith service. As much as we don’t like to be negative, we have witnessed a switch and bait scam that has been around for many years in the locksmith trade. The locksmith will quote you one price over the phone, hiding the real and much higher price until they have finished the job. You will end up with a much larger bill than expected.
