Think about it, just for a moment. Because we don’t.
When it comes to our car keys we just expect them to be there, until they’re not.
It’s usually when you least expect it. Your key breaks off in the lock or stops working just as you are racing to a meeting 30 miles away. You’ve lost your key, but you can’t remember where because you haven’t been out in the car for a week.
Oh no! That was the only key I had!
If you’ve only got one key or you’ve just lost the only one you had, you’re going to need a replacement fast. And that’s what we do on most makes and models of vehicle. We programme a new key to your vehicle and delete any missing keys, getting you back on the road asap.
I need my vehicle opening
If you do manage to lock yourself out, or just need to get into your car to retrieve your belongings, we can be with you on the same day and open your car professionally without causing any damage. The solutions are there, just give us a call with the make, model, year and registration of your vehicle and we’ll do the rest.
What about stolen keys?
The service is the same except so instead of reaching for the phone to call your insurance company, give us a call. We will attend to your call on the same day and change the locks for what averages out to be the same as your excess. So much simpler.
Worn out keys can be repaired
Over time your car keys wear out and many of us either end up running it into the ground until they key itself breaks or we purchase a new key.
Both options are often costly but aren’t always necessary. We can re-shell your key by putting a new plastic body back onto the key. It will look brand new and is much cheaper than replacing the whole key.
I need to get going, fast.
