In this blog, we will be discussing the benefits of choosing to hire a professional Auto Locksmith over a dealership and what the differences are.

The Benefits of Hiring a Professional Auto Locksmith Over a Dealership

Cheaper Prices

It's normally the case that an Auto Locksmith will cost less than a car dealership will when requiring services related to your car keys. Here at Keytek® Auto Locksmiths, we offer more affordable prices because we know how frustrating it can be to lose or damage your car keys and need a replacement or a repair.

Services Times

Keytek® Auto Locksmiths offers a professional, emergency local Auto Locksmiths services, offering a 30-to-60 minute emergency response time*. When using a car dealership to help you out with your keys, the wait time can be a few days, or potentially up to a week, whereas an Auto Locksmith can get you sorted out on the day.

Mobile Auto Locksmiths also come to you, wherever you are, so if you don't have access to your car key whether it's been lost or damaged and you cannot drive to a dealership, then this just makes life a lot easier when deciding to hire an Auto Locksmith.


Auto Locksmiths provide a professional Auto Locksmith service and are specially trained to offer the range of services you might need for your vehicle.

Not only will they be able to provide you with the services that you require, they will be able to inform you on any other information that you may need regarding your vehicle, including security, ways to look after your keys and car lock, as well as offering a second set of car keys at a reduced rate.

Due to our expertise, choosing to hire an Auto Locksmith rather than a car dealership will be more beneficial due to the nature of the Auto Locksmithing trade, and the expertise that our engineers have compared to car dealerships.
