What is Engineer Approval?

At Car Key Network we provide auto locksmith support services to the UK's largest fleet and automotive organisations. We provide support solely to trade customers with all work carried out by our Car Key Network Approved Engineers. If you would like to begin working within the trade sector, you may want to consider joining our network. For more information or to discuss the progress of an application, call: 0333 444 1908 (ext 3)

Annual Compliance Checks

Before you can begin working with us you'll first need to register, submitting your personal and trading information for review. Secondly, you'll need to submit supporting documentation to prove your identity, trading status, background and security ( this is called an Annual Compliance Check ). Only approved engineers are eligible to carry out bookings on behalf of the network or receive retail work referrals. Without valid, in date documentation your application will be unsuccessful, and/or approval status revoked. This is to ensure that we are providing a standard of service customers can rely on each and every time.

Industry Appoval

As part of our endeavour to make auto locksmithing secure environment for both our corporate customers and the wider public in general. Each Approved Engineer receives a Personal ID Card valid for 12 months from the point of approval. These cards can be shown to customers to provide an additional level of reassurance that they are dealing with a reputable business. There's a telephone number on the back of the card that your customers can use to verify your personal and company details. This is a free service provided by our Support Desk and is available for all your customers ( not just those provided via our network ).

Approved Engineer Benefits

Pick and Choose Your Work

At no time are engineers under pressure to complete a booking from our network. We respect that you reserve the right to schedule bookings when you see fit.

Immediate Payment by Invoice

Getting paid by large companies can take a long time, not with us. Payments for bookings completed via our network are made by bank transfer within 24 hours.

Vibrant Community

Swap, share and sell your knowledge, experience and unwanted stock or used equipment with our other auto locksmith engineers.

Only Your Local Area

We understand that you're already a busy company. Time on the road is time not working, which is why we'll only ask you to complete bookings in your local area.

Safeguard the Industry

We want to help protect the auto locksmith industry. By acting together as a national network to rival any national advertising call centre we're making that happen.

Our next stage of development will see our network begin to secure exclusive deals for our engineers, from insurance policies to stock and training courses.
