Fantastic, friendly service, I had locked myself out of the car at the local railway station. Immediate response from the guys who were also equipped to retrieve the spare car key that had accidentally been dropped down a drain. I would thoroughly recommend.

Excellent service, My key snapped in the ignition leaving me stranded. I called multiple 24hr locksmiths noone could be bother to come out, it was to late...!? I came across key4cars. Not only did he come out within the hour (when on boby else would!) The job was done in ten minutes and I was on my way. I will definitely be using again if in need and I would highly recommend.

Great service - they were very flexible about timing and fitted us in quickly. They fixed one key at a reasonable price and have offered to get in touch if a second “preloved” key becomes available, versus buying a brand new one at great expense. Much appreciated.

First time having to deal with a car locksmith and could not have asked for a better person than Shane. My car ignition was not starting and steering wheel locked up every time I moved the steering wheel.Shane was great, truly an experienced car engineer. I had RAC called over and they were not able to do anything for me. But Shane had all the tools and the spare part I needed for my car. Did not take him long at all to work out what was wrong and managed to fix the problem within half an hour.Every other car locksmith I tried was telling they are not free until a few days later.If you ever need a car locksmith Shane is the perfect person for the job. Thank you so much for your help mate. 10/10 experience.

I am very pleased with a service. Contacted the company on a Saturday and had the key done on Sunday. The key had a manufacture defect as it was the last one:) I had to lock the car manually, but was able to go to work on Monday. The following week once a new key arrived the pleasant young man came and replace it within 5 minutes. Quick response, fantastic service and excellent price for 7 days available service. Keep up a good work:)

Immobiliser/Alarm Pairing

When you get a new key from Keys 4 Cars, we’ll need to program it so that it works fully with your vehicle. We carry bespoke computerised equipment that makes the process quick and easy in most cases. Many car keys have an integrated transponder chip that is used to deactivate the vehicle’s immobiliser, and we’ll make sure that this is fully matched at the same time.

In rare cases, some cars may still need coding from your main dealer, so let us know your make and model in advance and we’ll be able to confirm whether or not we’ll be able to program your key correctly.
