If you have ever bought a vehicle at a storage auction, how did you get keys for it?

Not at *storage* auction but.......

1).  Dealership.  Give them the VIN and they'll cut a key.   Some dealers have some protocols.....ID, title....
(Electronic keys have to be reset so car has to be there)

2) buy new ignition and tumblers.  Rekey door to ignition key.....or just have two keys.

3) auto lock smith is cheaper than dealer and will reset electronic keys.   They also come to you.

Key fobs can be reset yourself on a lot of car.   It's just matter of hitting the right buttons in the right the Internet for instructions.
