Nowadays, most of the modern cars come with high-tech keys such as transponders, laser-cut keys, electronic fobs and so on. These keys are usually expensive and losing them means that you may have to pay a significant sum for obtaining a replacement from the dealer. But mishaps don’t come with a forewarning, and you can lose your costly keys anytime & anywhere, if you are not careful enough. However, you do not need to spend a fortune for getting a new one issued.

There are plenty of auto locksmith service providers who offer replacement for lost car keys in Sydney. These firms usually have qualified and trained professionals who can easily replace as well as program transponders or electronic fobs. Their service charges are very less than that asked for by dealerships. As such, you can have a new high-tech key issued by your local auto locksmith without burning a hole in your pocket.

Another thing that you can do is purchase the key from any well-known online store. Although many car owners shrug at buying auto keys over the Internet, you can get the right thing by following certain tips. First, check the description of the product carefully to make sure that it comes from the manufacturer of your vehicle. Next, go through the reviews that have been posted by other buyers to see whether the key worked for them or not.

Sometimes, in rare cases, it may just not be possible to get a new high-tech key either from an auto locksmith or any online store. However, you can still manage to save some dollars even if you have no other option but to obtain the replacement from a dealership. Initially, you will need to contact multiple dealerships and obtain quotes from them. After that, you will compare them and visit the one who offers to issue the key at a reasonable rate. You can either have the key cut and programmed or just buy it without the programming. Some transponders, fobs or electric keys can be configured with any assistance from the dealership, as the process for programming them is really simple. And it may be possible that the programming instructions for your key have already been posted online by another owner. All you need to do is just find it.

Thus, if you wish to save on replacement high-tech keys, these are the things that you can do.
