Be sure to contact us if you want a spare car key. Many car dealers only provide a single key today a recipe for trouble. The best way to be sure to never to lock your keys in the car is to have a spare car key in your wallet or purse.

If your remotes is broken or lost or if you want a new one setup for you, let us know. We will program one for you. We use genuine factory remotes and program them for you.

Does your key stick or catch in the ignition when you turn it, or perhaps it won't turn at all? Don't worry, we can help. The problem may be with your key or- with your ignition cylinder. Our well stocked vans can usually swap out a new cylinder or rebuild it so you won't need a new key.

On the other hand, if someone has keys to your car and you wish they didn't - we can help there as well.
We can change the ignition cylinder so the old keys won't work. If you have a transponder system this is even easier. All we need to do is reprogram your system so only your authorized keys work.

Broken Keys are easier to fix when a piece isn't stuck in a door or the ignition. But don't worry, even if they are, we can extract the broken piece and make you a new key. Beyond cutting new keys, we can help fix cracked or broken remote heads, without necessarily requiring you to buy a whole new key.

If you have an older car, you may well also have a worn key where the teeth no longer engage the cylinder as they should. We can identify the original factory codes to cut a new key that will be exactly the same as when the car and key were new.

Customer Testimonials

Absolutely the best! Very fast, friendly and weren't shady unlike the first 2 people we tried! Thank you so much for making our car key and getting us on our way home!


We scheduled an appointment but he was available earlier so he called to see if I was around. I was and he was at my house within 20 minutes. He made me a new key fob within about 30 minutes, had me test every part, including the newly cut key, keyless entry, and car start. He was very friendly and even taught me how to use the key fob if the battery dies. Their price was about $100 less than the dealer was going to charge me and another company that makes key fobs told me that only the dealer could program for a 2012 Prius but they were incorrect. The Key Guys did it. I would definitely use them again if I needed a key fob.


Wanted a spare key cut for my car. Called the Dealer and was surprised at the cost. Called the Key Guys and they beat the price and came to me. Now that is what I call great service.


Highly recommend! I called this company this morning. Recommended off Angie's List. The guy said he does most of his business with other companies and dealers, though not as often to the general public. But these are the guys! The guy who helped me was professional, friendly, confident, and peppy.
My key and remote fob hybrid for my modern car fell off the caribeaner, had me devastated. This guy was able to fully replace it, change the frequency on my car so the old key wouldn't work, and even gave me a spare standalone key in case something like this happened again! All of this was reasonably priced.


absolutely outstanding company! I called them to help me with an issue on my truck lock and the guy who answered the call was very professional, helpful, friendly, and happy to help. He gave my phone number to an associate that was working on someone else's lock that was closer to me so I wouldn't have to wait so long, which I really appreciated. The guy gave me updates regularly so I would know when he would be here and when he arrived he was really friendly and worked hard to get it done in time for us to leave when we had to. The price I paid was excellent and he even gave me a copy so I wouldn't run into the same problem again. I highly reccomend The Key Guys and they will be the only ones I will call if I ever need keys or help with locks again.

Thank you guys! I really appreciate everything you did, you made a stressful situation alot easier to deal with.
