Dealers & Online Retailers

Helping you to better serve customers and protect your online reputation in today's modern and evolving way of retailing cars.

Your Problems

With today's modern purchasing methods mixing online buying with face-to-face business, customer experience from the point of enquiry right through to handover has become as important as target margins and volumes.

With so many vehicles in rotation, losses or damages of keys both before handover and afterwards is inevitable for any dealer.

So when a key related problem falls within a customer's collection date there’s very little that can be done other than postpone handover and let the customer down.

Local car locksmith services do not cater for prestige brands or the latest models and even through internal channels, acquiring replacements can be costly, taking weeks to arrange with sales departments left to pick up the bill.

If a key related problem occurs during or after the delivery of a vehicle, the result is an unhappy customer, negative reviews and increased costs.

  • Key related faults occur during vehicle preparation.
  • Solving key related problems after delivery is difficult.
  • Handovers are postponed due to long part delivery timescales.
  • Local car locksmiths do not cater for all makes and models.
