Firstly, I am not part of any franchise group, I am totally independant and offer a more personal service geared towards providing a value for money service. So much so that 40% of new enquiries are referal from previous customers.

Prices displayed are for guidance only.

Don't use them as a bargaining tool with other companies as their operating costs may be different.

Are you driving around with only one key, always meaning to get another one?

Have you stopped to consider the consequences if your only key gets lost, stolen, goes faulty, or your bored dog chews it up.

You could be off the road for days waiting for your new key to arrive at the main dealer.

How are you going to get to work, do the shopping, pick up the kids, etc

If its your business vehicle you could lose out on £100's a day in lost trade.

Once the key arrives, you will then have the added expense of getting your car to the main dealer, they won't come out to you.

Getting a spare key done whilst you have an existing key will cost you a third of the price of a total loss situation, but some vehicles like Saab, Toyota, Rover, VAG 2012> need a working key in order to add further keys.

If you don't have a working key, some main dealers will change out everything including the locks with costs around £750+

In many instances you can suffice with a non remote key, that will get you into the car and start the engine.

A non remote key is cheaper than a remote key and a perfect emergency standby, until you can arrange for a replacement remote.



Some manufacturer key cases like Citroen/Peugeot are 
appallingly weak and fall to bits after a few years. 

Others like Vauxhall/Hyundai/Kia have an inherent weakness where the flip blades breaks away from the remote metal housing.

As these are factory sealed remotes, they are not designed to be repaired, but they will happily sell you a new programmed remote.

For a fraction of the cost of what the main dealer will charge you, I can re-case your old one.



A number of main dealerships and car buying companies, are now insisting that you have a second key when you trade in your old car.

If you don't have one, they will reduce their initial offer price by whatever the main dealer charges, plus a bit more for their time, typically starting at £250.00 for a bladed remote key, more for the later proximity remotes that have a dash start/stop system.

The same applies to lease and Mobility cars, if it was supplied with 2 or 3 keys when new, that's what they will expect on it's return.

There are number of new "companies" entering the car key business.

Some are operating with counterfeit programming equipment and cheap quality Chinese made keys.

This equipment has absolutely no technical support, and in the wrong hands can put your car into "theft mode" or cause serious damage to your car's Electronic Control Unit.

So when looking around for a quote, take some time to check out the companies.

They may have a flashy website, but do they have a link to independant customer reviews like

rather than their own brief customer feedback.


Whilst I have the equipment to program the majority of popular vehicles, I do not cover BMW (and BMW based ie Mini, Rover 75), Mercedes, Porsche, Volvo, VAG 2012> and high-end executive/sports cars

I can however pass on the details of an engineer who does covers these vehicles.
