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:)

Car Key Replacement / Key Cutting

There are numerous reasons why you might want to get a replacement car key cut. Perhaps your spare key has gone missing. It may be simply wearing out or has bent accidentally. Whatever the reason, we’ll be happy to cut you a new or duplicate key AND program it/them to your vehicle and immobiliser at the same time – cutting you a key at a price that’ll be much cheaper than your main dealer. We also provide 24-hour emergency car key replacement if your key is lost, damaged or locked in your vehicle.

Car Key Programming

Keys 4 Cars Ltd. provide a quick and easy mobile car key programming service. One of our locksmiths can either visit you at home or you can come to our Kent workshop if you prefer.

Most car keys have an integrated transponder chip that’s used to deactivate the immobiliser. This 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.

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 somewhere.

Vehicle Lock Repairs

Although it’s mainly the key that gets damaged, occasionally it can be the lock instead. If the lock or ignition barrel becomes worn or damaged, it can also cause the key to get stuck. If this happens, we'll come to you and repair or replace either the vehicle's door lock or ignition barrel of your vehicle.

Between 6-10 wafers make up the majority of automobile locks. 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 automobile.

Vehicle Opening

We have all the necessary tools to provide a fast, damage-free car entry service to your vehicle. It’s a common problem to either lose your keys or accidentally lock them in your car or van. 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. We can open most cars 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.

Emergency 24/7 Mobile Auto Locksmith

Sometimes you can lose your keys or they become damaged. You may have even locked them in your car. Our 24-hour emergency automotive locksmith will cut you a replacement key on the spot if it’s an emergency and you need a replacement car key fast. Call our emergency number and we’ll arrive with all the tools and equipment needed to complete the job – Day or night 24/7, 365 days a year.

A brief history of Romford

The first mention of Romford was way, way back in 1177 AD. Back then, it was called ‘Romfort’. The meaning of the word then meant “the wide or spacious ford”.

The area of Romford started to expand from the Middle Ages onwards and this was largely due to there being a newly established market in 1247. In those days, central Romford wasn’t where it is today, it was actually further south where Oldchurch is in present times. The reason for the move was that the old centre was prone to flooding when the River Rom surged, hence the move further to the north.

Romford residents will, of course, be aware of the Parish Church of St Edward the Confessor, but did you know that this was the location of the very first building after the relocation. Like most places outside of London., Romford was largely agricultural and had numerous mills that ground corn. From the 16th to the 19th century, Romford was also well-known for the manufacture of leather goods but also had abundant breweries, weaving houses and metalwork shops.
