Our auto locksmith engineers are able to work with the majority of vehicles, either by the roadside or via scheduled appointment. Select engineers also work with large commercial vehicles (HGV) and motorcycles. Naturally however, some of our engineers carry more equipment, software and experience than others. A typical scope of work includes:

  • Non-Destructive Vehicle Entry
  • Faulty Lock Repair and Replacements
  • Replacement Keys for Lost or Stolen Keys
  • Spare Keys, Additional Keys and Key Cloning
  • Eeprom / Microprocessor Programming

To streamline enquiry to completion timescales and minimise time spent providing site inductions; where possible, we aim to provide depots requiring continued support with a dedicated engineer.

The UK auto locksmith community is a friendly and vibrant environment, with engineers regularly attending trade shows like the Lock Expo and with locksmiths regularly sharing knowledge and fault finding techniques with one another.

Car Key Network has been designed to contribute towards the continued cooperation with one another that the individual locksmiths enjoy.

Our engineers regularly share industry knowledge and openly offer one another advice, not just on the specifics of vehicle key programming but also general business advice.

We will soon be launching a platform for our engineers to communicate with one another online, internally.
