It is never a good feeling when you go out to start your car in the morning to go to work, only to find out that the car will not start. Many may run to jump the battery, and when that does not work, they feel stressed and overwhelmed. In reality, your battery could be just fine and the issue could be linked to something else entirely.

If it isn't your battery, it could be a problem with your ignition. Instead of making several phone calls to figure out how to transport your car to the dealership, you may want to try a mobile locksmith. Learn why a locksmith may be a better choice to repair your ignition issues in Tampa, Brandon, Wesley Chapel, and other nearby areas of Florida.


Going to the dealership will take up a lot of your time.

If you elect to take your car to the dealership, that will require a lot of your most valuable resource—your time. You will have to find a tow truck, wait for the driver to arrive, and then ride to the dealership. Once you get to the dealership, you may end up having to wait even longer. Often, dealerships will be backed up with other service requests and appointments and cannot get to you immediately. They also may not have the part in stock, which means you will be waiting even longer and may have to call for a ride home.

Dealership parts and service typically cost you a lot more money as well, which is why you should explore your options before heading there.


A mobile locksmith will get to you quickly and repair the problem on-site.

Instead of spending hours of your time at a dealership, consider calling a mobile locksmith instead. More often than not, they can come directly to you within 30 minutes of your phone call. Licensed and insured locksmiths are well-trained in ignition repairs and replacements. They can quickly assess your situation and advise you on the best course of action.

While a dealership may not have the right parts for your car in stock, a locksmith will generally have everything they need to repair or replace your ignition. They are also a much more cost-effective option than an auto dealership. Types of cars that our mobile locksmith company can work with include:

  • BMW
