Key Cutting – Eltham Car Key Replacement
Even if it’s not an emergency, there are numerous reasons why you might want a replacement car key. Perhaps the spare has gone missing or your key is simply wearing out or gets bent accidentally. Whatever the reason, we’ll be happy to provide you with a new or duplicate key AND program it/them to your vehicle and immobiliser at the same time – all for a price that’ll be much cheaper than your local Eltham main dealer.
Car Opening Anywhere in Eltham SE9
We have all the necessary tools to provide a fast, damage-free car entry service in Eltham SE9. It’s a common problem to either lose your keys or accidentally lock them in your car. We won’t damage or cause any signs of forced entry when opening car doors as our skilled team have professional tools and are experts at car lock picking. Although most cars can be opened within seconds, others can take a bit longer. Either way, we’ll have you back on the road in no time, and at a cheaper price than you’d likely have to pay if you visited your main dealer in Eltham.
Car Key Programming for Eltham Drivers
Keys 4 Cars Ltd. provide a quick and easy mobile car key programming service. We can either visit you at home or you can come to our Gravesend workshop if you prefer.
Most car keys have an integrated transponder chip that’s used to deactivate the immobiliser which means the key will need to be programmed to the car. Don’t worry, we’ve got all the equipment necessary to program virtually any car key ( although a tiny percentage may still need coding by your main dealer). Just let us know the make and model and we’ll tell you if we can help. We usually like to supply a new key with programming as it allows us to make sure the correct transponder chip and key are used.
Eltham Car Key Repairs
With age, keys can become worn and snap off in locks, causing an unexpected headache. If this happens to you, don’t panic! We can refurbish, repair or replace keys that have problems AND save you money over a full key replacement. Similarly, if your key has lost its sharp grooves and you’re struggling to open your door or turn the ignition barrel, let us take care of it before it stops working altogether or snaps off in the barrel. Make sure you keep our number handy if this ever happens to you and you find yourself stranded in Eltham.
Car Lock Repairs
Although it’s mainly the key that gets damaged, occasionally the lock itself might be the problem. If the door lock or ignition barrel becomes worn or is damaged, it can cause the key to get stuck. If this happens to you we can visit you in Eltham to repair or replace either the door lock or ignition barrel.
The majority of car locks are made up of between 6-10 wafers. All it takes is for 1 of the wafers to become worn for the key to be unable to meet the wafer, meaning an issue will eventually develop with locking, unlocking or starting your car. We know all the tricks of the trade to remove, replace and/or repair the necessary parts without any damage to your car.

Eltham’s geography is actually quite strategic due to lying on a high, sandy plateau. In days gone by, this factor (along with Eltham’s proximity between sea ports and London) led to the construction of Eltham Palace. Right back as early as 1270AD Henry III often celebrated Christmas at his “palace of Eltham”. Later, Edward III held a Parliament in Eltham in 1329 and 1375.
Not far away, Well Hall was the home of several famous individuals throughout the years. In 1733 the entire estate was sold for £19,000 to Sir Gregory Page who demolished Roper House and built Page House (aka Well Hall House) although sadly it was demolition in 1931. Notably, it was home to the author Edith Nesbit who wrote “The Railway Children”.
Avery Hill Park and mansion was the home of Colonel North, a wealthy nitrate magnate. Even to this day, a hothouse is still open to the public containing exotic tropical plants. There are still remnants of the formal gardens in the public park.
