How Much Does It Cost To Replace Car Keys?
Posted on 25th, Mar 2019
Many things in Life aren’t replaceable, luckily your Car Keys are.
The leading Automotive Locksmith in Perth, we get into our Vans and are on our way to you, a few minutes after receiving your call for Emergency Assistance when you’ve lost your Car keys.
How much does an Emergency Locksmith cost these days to replace a set of car keys? It all depends on the kind of Car you drive.
If you drive an older car, manufactured before 1990, the doors will be operated by a Mechanical Lock. For this type of job, a Locksmith in Perth will charge between $140 – $220 to resolve.
If you drive a newer car, your car will likely use a Transponder Lock. These are more expensive. They could cost you $500 plus – depending on the car you drive.
Why Are Transponder Automotive Locks So Expensive?
It’ really because of the technology they use. Transponder Automotive Locks are very secure. Cars with Automotive Locks are hard to break into because the key is coded and linked to your Vehicle’s Onboard Computer. Not easy to break into.

The key is made from specialised metal that carries a frequency around it. Our job as Expert Automotive Locksmiths in Perth, is to provide you with a base key (which is expensive) and then code it onsite – linking the code to your car’s onboard computer.
