Locksmith or Dealership? Tips for Automotive Key Needs in Phoenix, AZ

by | Apr 22, 2020 | Car

As technology advances, so do our car keys. Whether you’re looking to create a spare key, or replace a complex transponder key, it’s good to know who to call first. Dealerships seem to be the go-to, but what’s the difference between them and a locksmith? For automotive key needs in Phoenix, AZ, consider the following:

The Price is Right

Dealerships often charge a hefty amount to fix or replace keys. Locksmiths offer cheaper service with a passion for community. This allows you to take care of multiple car key needs in the same visit for a fair cost. For a friendly face and price, locksmiths have a lot to offer.

Accessibility and Convenience

Locksmiths are mobile! They can come to you at your convenience, rather than stopping by in person. This is especially important when you lose your car keys. Additionally, locksmiths available after-hours for emergency services can come at any time of the day.


Having issues with door locks or your ignition? A reputable locksmith also has these skills under their belt. All issues with a vehicle involving keys can be taken care of by a locksmith. Regardless of the type of key, automotive locksmiths come prepared for any job.

Research Wisely

Just like dealerships, some locksmiths will charge more than necessary.

“Scam” locksmiths will often take ad space on Google to ensure they are called first. There are plenty of local, long-standing locksmith businesses in your area that covers a wide variety of key needs. Do what you can to research your options: ask friends and family, make a few phone calls, and even request quotes on websites like Yelp!
