Car & Motorcycle Key Duplication & Replacement

We can duplicate most keys on-site. Car keys are the exception.

Due to the cost of equipment and the complexity of programming new car keys and smart locks, we limit our key copying service for cars and motorcycles to our Costa Mesa store.

We’re certified to program most models of cars and motorcycles and have access to a wide range of aftermarket and OEM parts. You won’t have to worry about finding your vehicle’s correct key blank or transponder. Chances are, we’ll have it in the shop.

Why Choose Balport for Car or Motorcycle Key Duplication?

Modern vehicles come with improved locking systems to deter theft. A car or motorcycle responder receives a signal from the transponder permitting the vehicle to start. This mechanism is not the same as a remote control.

Duplicating such a key requires specialized skills and experience. Trust us to provide the best car key cutting, duplication, and programming service regardless of your vehicle’s make or model.

  • We have the tools and experience to create a high-quality duplicate key that will work just as well as the original.
  • We can duplicate almost any car or motorcycle key type, including older models with unusual key designs. And we’ll provide you with a spare key, which can be a lifesaver if you lose your original key.
  • We’ll program your new key to work with your car’s immobilizer system, ensuring your car is secure.
  • We offer competitive rates much better than dealership rates.
  • If your car locks need changing or upgrades, we’ll handle them immediately without requiring a new appointment or a lengthy wait.
