car keys cost

Why is a dealer more expensive than a local locksmith in Scranton, PA?

It’s simple. The dealer makes a high profit on their products and services due to higher overhead. Their highest markup is usually on the cost of rekeying car keys because many people rely on this service when they get new car keys from dealerships.

How much should I pay for a replacement car key from the dealer?

You can expect to pay $300-$800 for a car key replacement. For example, the dealer charges $275-$575 for Honda keys and $290-$645 for Ford keys. That’s just the cost of the key! Don’t forget that towing your car to the dealer will cost you more money.

Since childhood, Locks & Keys were my favorite hobby. In 2018 I started my professional practice with several companies in upstate NY. I always knew that one day I would open a locksmith shop of my own. Elegant Lock & Key is the place where I can play with locks all day long.
