By Elegant Lock & Key

KeyMe Locksmiths, commonly known as “KeyMe – Vending Machines for key creation,” has been in business for a few years. The ability for Google Maps users to find all KeyMe vending machines is highly beneficial to KeyMe. Since then, KeyMe’s operations have expanded in several ways, although the most important is the UBER upgrade. What exactly is the UBER upgrade?

What is KeyMe, and how does it works?

KeyMe is a combination of Uber driving and locksmith service in simple terms. Qualified locksmiths on wheels. Once KeyMe receives your information, they post it on a dashboard, allowing locksmiths to decide whether to take it or not. Of course, there are plenty of talented locksmiths all around the United States. However, it’s like playing Russian Roulette with a six-shooter.

Don’t play games with your loving ones & belongings!

Elegant Lock & Key is located in Scranton, Pennsylvania. Our store attracts people from all around the region for locksmith services. They are not coming because we have pretty faces, and we do. Every client gets a family owner’s “Good Morning” and “How can I help you?”, and that’s not all. In addition, we never sell or trade our clients’ key codes to a third party.

TIP! Look at the client reviews before deciding where to go. It’s not 100 percent, but it’s better than nothing.

Security, this is why you must hire a reputable, local locksmith technician for all of your lock and key issues. Protect your loving ones and belongings by choosing one local locksmith store that provides all locksmith services under one roof.

There are reputable locksmith technicians in every city and county in your area if you look around.

Get an ASAP car key replacement.

It’s possible that purchasing a residential key from a KeyMe machine will work. But when it comes to automobile keys and remotes, though, that’s a different story entirely.

Key Cutting Vs. Key Programming

Key cutting is a simple process, only when there is an existent key. An automotive kiosk would not do that when there is no key or when the key should be programmed and synced with the car’s computer.

What about remotes and remote head keys?

This is far beyond the capabilities of a vending machine. Let’s wait until 2030, and then we’ll see. For now, adding, deleting, and dealing with remotes and remote head keys, is something you need to call a professional locksmith to come over.

Is it reasonable to call an unknown locksmith for my business?

No! If you want to stay on the safe side with your business, do not allow unknown locksmiths to come over. You have to find the one locksmith you can trust and call him/her every time a lock and key issue pops up.

Commercial Locksmithing is more advanced and complicated than standard residential Locksmithing. Even though commercial-grade locks are more durable than others, they can disturb the business operation when one lock has malfunctioned. Choosing an unknown locksmith to install your commercial grade locks might cost you the same, but you’ll never get the warm welcome & customers service of a local businessman.

Can KeyMe Machine create a master key system for me?

Let’s say that you are a landlord of 100 units + Office. Now you want to give each tenant a key that doesn’t fit his neighbors’ keyholes. You also wish your maintenance team to have one key to open all the doors, but not the Office. In addition, you want to have a key that unlocks everything like magic. This is a master key system. A professional Locksmith can do it, but you have to have a pro locksmith to solve this equation. Moreover, you have to get a trustworthy local locksmith because you want your master key code list to stay safe.

Conclusions

I don’t know about you, but it’s been 12 years, and I am using the same car mechanic for my car repairs. Do you know why? Because it took me time and lots of money to find a reputable mechanic, I’m sure you would have done the same.

Same with all local services such as a locksmith. You want someone local—a professional with an address or a storefront nearby you. Local services aren’t about getting things fixed. It’s mostly about professionalism and customer service.

He was in touch every step of the way. He was very innovative with the installation and even secured the doorframe. The rate was low and I was not made to feel uncomfortable in any way.
