Need a New Car Key?
Mobile Car Key Cutting & Programming
Cutting car keys is not the same as it used to be. For most vehicles now, it’s not just a matter of visiting a town centre shop for a new key from a standard blank.
That’s because since 1995, immobiliser systems have been fitted to all vehicles to prevent theft. Meaning your engine will only start if it recognises a code from a corresponding transponder chip built into the key. And since technology has moved on too, allowing us to open and lock our vehicles remotely, that’s another factor built into the cost of a new car key.
But a new key needn’t be too costly if you choose wisely. If your instinct is to go to a dealership of your car’s manufacturer, that’s definitely going to be expensive. And what if you’ve lost your only car key? There’s the factor of even getting your vehicle to the showroom along with the cost of doing so.
We can save all that hassle and expense. As a mobile car key cutter, we come to you!
We have far lower overheads and as a smaller, independent auto locksmith we don’t have to add VAT onto our price either, something any dealership would definitely do. Even if they could match our price, your key would be 20% more expensive anyway.
But what’s the reason you need a replacement car key? You must know it’s always best to keep a spare or maybe you’ve lost a key. If you’ve just had a key stolen you might be worried about thieves stealing your car too. If that’s your circumstance, Steve as an ex-police officer is uniquely qualified to cut a new key, reprogram your car’s transponder and provide important advise.
