What our clients say
We have all the necessary tools to provide a fast, damage-free car entry service in Orpington. 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 Orpington.
Car Key Programming
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.
Orpington Car & Van 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 Orpington.
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 Orpington 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.

Fascinating Orpington facts
Ever heard of the Orpington Car? If not, it was originally designed by Frank Smith and built by the company Smith & Milroy Ltd in Wellington Road. Billed as the “businessman’s car”, it made its debut appearance at the 1920 Motor Show and was a two-seater convertible, boating a 10HP engine. Unfortunately, its success was short-lived as it simply couldn’t compete with the economical advantages of the growing mass-production car market that was growing rapidly during that time and production ceased in 1925. Sadly, there are no known examples of the Orpington car left today.
