1.8 Customer Supplied Keys:  No Warranty: When a service provider explicitly states that he is not offering any warranty for either CUSTOMER SUPPLIED VEHICLE KEY(S) and/or the service being provided, it means that the service provider is not responsible for any issues which may arise while performing and/or after completion of said service. This places the responsibility on the customer to ensure that the service meets their expectations and that they are satisfied with the work done.  Liability and Risks: Without a warranty, the customer assumes the risks associated with the service or repair as well as all costs involved which includes payment of the agreed upon price for attempting to program the customer supplied vehicle key even if said attempt proves unsuccessful.  If any issues arise during service performance or after the service is completed, the customer will not have any recourse for seeking a resolution from the service provider.  Customer-Supplied Vehicle Keys: If a customer supplies their own vehicle keys for a service or repair, it’s important for the service provider to take extra care in handling the keys and ensuring their safekeeping. This is especially crucial as the customer has entrusted their property to the service provider.  In summary, El Cheapo 24 Hour Mobile Locksmith does not offer a warranty when the customer supplies his own vehicle key.  We do recommend the use of our keys which always include a six month warranty (which does not cover water damage).  California law requires matching registration and official government identification when creating any vehicle key.  We take the safety of our technicians very seriously which requires us to collect personal information that we do not sell or give out to anyone.  By following this locksmithing vehicle key policy, customers can have confidence in the quality and reliability of the keys provided by the locksmith, whether they choose OEM, refurbished, or third-party keys.
