  1. Choose your locksmith according to key types: When looking for locksmiths, you should take a look at your car keys first. Identify which type of car keys you have like VAT keys, Laser cut keys, transponder keys, or machine grooved keys. Not all locksmiths are qualified to handle all types of keys and it is but obvious that you should look for one which has the requisite experience and tools to handle your situaton. If you are not sure about your key type, we at KeyBay would love to help you out with it. Just drop an e-mail or send us a picture of the keys at the phone numbers given on the website.

  1. Go local: The best way to find about experienced locksmiths in your area is to go local and ask your neighbors, family and friends. You should get a good idea about the number of locksmiths operating in and around your area and their competence. You will again have to keep your car key type in mind while looking for recommendations so make sure you don’t miss out this important detail.

  1. Firm or individual: If you pick a firm, rest assured that they will never be busy and attend to your problems immediately, and will always have the requisite tools at disposal for handling tricky problems. Traditional locksmiths who operate on their own, sometimes face the challenges of a busy schedule, lack of specialised tools, etc. At KeyBay, we are a dedicated team of over 50 individuals specialising in all types of keys and their customisations.

  1. Specialisation: You should also ask your prospective locksmith if he specialises in a certain type of keys like VAT keys, Laser engraved keys, etc. Try to find ones which are suited for your kind.
