CALIBRE AUTO LOCKSMITH
Car Key Cutting and Programming
But to help prevent theft, since 1995 it has been a legal requirement that all vehicles have an immobiliser system fitted. A system that works with a transponder chip built into the car key. The engine only starts if the ignition receives the correct code from the transponder chip when the key is turned.
And today most car keys are 3 in 1. The traditional key blade for the steering lock, the integrated transponder the car has to recognise to turn the ignition and a remote control to unlock the car doors, or turn off an alarm.
All that functionality comes at a price however and depending on where you go for a new or replacement key, and the circumstances, the cost can be high and vary wildly.
You certainly do not have to go to a main dealer for new car key cutting and programming, that will definitely be the most expensive option. Which may account for the £180 million that British drivers spent last year in simply replacing lost keys, according to the RAC.
Calibre Auto Locksmith can cut and program manufacturers keys at a fraction of what it would cost at your vehicle’s dealership. They often have to order the key in as well which may take days to arrive, whereas of course we carry spares from all manufacturers and have the means to provide your key straight away.
In fact, if yours is a JLR Group vehicle…a Jaguar, Land Rover or Range Rover, we are one of the very few mobile key cutters in the UK who have the equipment to cut and program a new key or fob and synchronise it to your car.
And consider this, as mobile key cutters, we come to you. The main dealers don’t have a mobile service. What then if you lost your only key? You’d also have to factor in the cost of delivering your car to their workshop too.
Whatever your make of vehicle, if you want the same high level of service, and the same product you’d receive at a dealership but at a much better price choose Calibre Auto Locksmith. Plus with us, you wouldn’t have to pay VAT on top either!
For key cutting and programming, we always deliver. Literally.
