If you have lost your car keys or had them stolen from you, it can be a major inconvenience that can sideline you from living your life. In this situation, do not panic. You have options available to you, such as contacting your dealership or calling a mobile locksmith.

In this case, your best bet is to contact a mobile locksmith instead of a dealership in Tampa, Brandon, Wesley Chapel, and nearby cities in Florida. Learn here why a locksmith is a better choice than a dealership.


A dealership will cost you a lot more money.

If you call a dealership to get a new key, then you could end up spending a lot more money. Dealerships are notorious for upcharging on car parts, and keys are no exception. If you have a smart key or key fob, you could be spending hundreds of dollars to get a new one.

A mobile locksmith, however, will be able to create and program a new key for you and save you on the costs of replacing your missing car key. We can create keys for most types of cars, including:

  • Chevrolet
  • Ford
  • Mercedes-Benz
  • BMW
  • Toyota
  • Nissan
  • And many more!

One replacement key for a Mercedes can run anywhere from $200-$500 if you order it through a dealership.


A mobile locksmith will save you time and get you back in your car much more quickly.

Going to the dealership requires several steps before you can obtain your replacement key. First, you have to figure out how to even get to the dealership since you cannot get into your car without a key. You will generally also have to make an appointment with the dealership to get a service visit since they are usually pretty booked. Once there, they may not even have the key parts needed in stock and will have to order them for you. That can take a couple weeks depending on where the keys are coming from. After the keys arrive, you will have to bring your car to the dealership so they can program the smart key to your car.

Meanwhile, calling a mobile locksmith will get you back into your car much more quickly. Generally, a locksmith can get to your location within 30 minutes or so. After they arrive and verify that you are indeed the owner of the car, they will quickly create a new key for you and can even create new smart keys or key fobs. Calling a locksmith ensures that you will be able to resume your normal life faster than calling a dealership will.
