Lost your car keys? Don’t waste money on replacement car keys at the dealership. Let Omega Locksmith make you a new car key at a price that will amaze you! Locksmiths are as diverse as they come: some specialize in automotive services, others in commercial and residential. An automotive locksmith specializes in the key and lock system of vehicles. Their forte is mainly in the production of replacement car keys, key duplication, broken keys, repair of ignition/window/door locks and lockouts. Residential locksmiths generally involve lock making and lock defeating at homes and personal properties, while commercial locksmiths specialize in business and enterprise. If you are looking for a locksmith for car keys in Chicago, you’d find that there are quite a number of them in the area, and almost all claim to be experts in their field. When looking for a particular type of service for your car keys in Chicago, what are the things you should consider in a Chicago locksmith then?


  1. Reputation. If you have to do your research and ask around, go ahead by all means. It is very important that your Chicago locksmith is reputable and has a proven track record. Avoid locksmiths with ill-repute, no matter how seemingly insignificant. You do not want to take chances on deals and promises that might not be worth all the trouble in the end.
  2. Rates. Expensive does not always mean quality as quality does not necessarily mean expensive. You acknowledge that Chicago locksmiths can give you the same quality service as your dealer’s at a better price, so do not be afraid to ask for better deals and discounts from your locksmith. They’d welcome a happy customer who might give some future referrals to friends and family, as competition is everywhere and repeat business is always good business.
  3. Expertise. What does your locksmith specialize in? Is he abreast with the latest security features of cars? (especially if you are looking to have your smart keys replaced on vehicles of recent make, with sophisticated anti-theft features) And is he familiar with the particular service that you require for your vehicle and/or key?  If your locksmith can answer them well for you, then he knows his stuff.
  4. Delivery of service. Acquiring replacement car keys in Chicago is always urgent business, as you need your vehicle and/or keys in the soonest possible time and a long wait is not exactly productive in this aspect. Ask how long would the turnaround be for a specific job you’re requesting. Engaging the service of a Chicago locksmith should give you faster results than those you might expect at your local car dealership, otherwise, why take your business to them at all?
  5. After sales service. In the event that something goes wrong after the service that you require, would the Locksmiths be willing to help you out of problems arising from the repair or replacement they have done? You should never forget to inquire as this is a determinant whether your locksmith has done a great job. If they did, they’d welcome any after sales concerns that you have. If not, then they might have done a sloppy job after all.
