How to get a Car Key in Washington DC Metro Area
So… you have misplaced your car key while downtown Washington DC. What a bummer! Here are few things you can do.
1. Call the car dealership – . Most car dealerships charge between $150 to $1200 for a new car key on a late model vehicle. Usually you will need to tow the vehicle to the dealership, usually costing at least $100, which makes getting the car key copy very expensive. Depending whether the car is under bumper to bumper warranty the dealer may cover this cost.
2. Call a mobile locksmith – There are many professional mobile locksmiths which can help you with your car key problem. However usually they don't have a retail storefront, this can be a problem if you ever need to get back in touch with them, they can be hard to track down.
3. Call a nationwide scammer locksmith call center – Many of these nationwide locksmith call centers wont give you much information over the phone.
