In today’s post, our experts at NJ’S will talk about what you need to know about getting your car keys cut.
Basic and Transponder Keys
The major difference between the two is on the basis of technology. Transponder keys are advanced in security as they work by emitting a radio signal from the key to the car. In the case of a lost or stolen transponder key, the only solution would be to get them programmed. A trained expert such as NJ’s Auto Locksmiths Sydney should perform this, as we will ensure to give you an effective and reliable service at your doorstep.
Time Duration to Cut New Car Keys
Car key cutting can be done with the use of existing key or it can be cut by code. The fastest way of car key cutting is to simply duplicate the key by using an existing key. The slowest method would be to decode the ignition cylinder. A professional locksmith can complete the task very quickly and efficiently. It would only take a few minutes after the locksmith has arrived and checked the vehicle.
The Need for Original Keys
It is not mandatory to have original keys for car key cutting. Even if there is no mechanical key on hand to copy, a key can still be made. This type of service might cost more, as the vehicle’s database would be used for this function.
In this situation, the locksmith would carry on a verification process for your ownership of the car merely for your own protection in order to prevent any other individual to get duplicate keys made.
Getting the Best Price
Older basic keys cost less to replace than transponder keys of newer cars, which need to be programmed so that so that your vehicle recognises the newly cut key. You can do your research to find out the differences between the prices of your dealer compared to locksmiths in Sydney.

Things that you require…
Firstly, you need to prove that you are the owner of the vehicle. Your license and registration would be mandatory to get yourself verified to the locksmith. In case, you are not the owner, you will need the documentation that would state permission to get the keys cut. Our team at NJ’s Locksmiths Sydney would ensure that you are obtaining key copies legally before proceeding with the process.
