Car Key Repairs

We can refurbish, repair or replace any car key that’s causing you a problem meaning there’s no need to pay for a full key replacement.

Car Key Repairs

With age, keys can become worn and snap off in locks, which can cause you an unexpected headache. Don’t worry, we can refurbish, repair or replace keys that have problems and save you money over a full key replacement.

How it happens

Broken car keys are rare but can happen due to the metal being stressed or being badly worn. This can cause your key to not work or snap in the door or ignition. At Keys 4 Cars we have the training and equipment to be able to repair a broken car key.

Consider a duplicate

We can duplicate your key and produce a new one for nearly any vehicle. Some keys start to show signs of wear and tear after many years of use and start to lose their sharp peaks and grooves, sometimes making it difficult to use the key in the lock or ignition. If you ever find yourself forcing your key to turn, it’s probably time to consider having it replaced before it snaps entirely.

So, if you’ve snapped your key in the ignition barrel or the car’s door lock, contact Keys 4 Cars Ltd. and we’ll be able to remove your broken key and produce a new replacement car key on the spot.

Due to ULEZ tax my car had to go. Second hand car sold with only 1 key! Main dealer wanted over £300 to produce a second key!!! Found this business online and read reviews. The team came straight to my door, 5 star service. Will definitely spread the word! Highly recommended.

Would absolutely recommend! What a lovely experience given how annoying it is to have to get a new set of car keys. Very professional, stellar customer service & great chat! Will definitely use him again when I inevitably lose this new set (Lol!)

Second time I have used this company. Both times have been 5 star service. Very good. Met me half way (distance) to sort out a new key. Very reasonable price and friendly service. I would definitely use again and happily recommend to anyone else.

These guys could not be more helpful and courteous. My fob on my car was not working and they came to my house. They arrived on time and texted me when they were on their way which I really appreciated. They made a new fob within the time they said it would take which worked perfectly. A few days later they helped me to try and sort out another problem I had with the car via text messaging me. They were absolutely brilliant and so very kind and helpful. They really went out of their way to help me. I recommend this company to anyone and their details are now on my phone should I get any further issues. You won’t go wrong by ringing this company.Thank you guys. 👍😁

Absolute amazing service last night. Partner had her car keys stolen, called these guys up and within 45mins, they’d arrived at around 22:00 to create me new keys to protect the car.He gained access to her car, coded 2 new keys and used his tools to delete the old keys from the car so the thief couldn’t take it.All this was done whilst he explained everything he’s doing and answered all my stupid questions.I’ve saved his number and anything lock related now I will definitely use these guys again!

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.

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:)
