Vehicle Preparation Facilties

Helping you to keep up with large quality and timescale output demands by assigning dedicated, expert engineers to carry out reliable on-site support at scale.

Your Problems

Preparation facilities are fast-paced environments. With so many vehicles arriving on-site, passing through inspection and workshops; ensuring repairs are carried out quickly and to acceptable standards is vital to ensuring a quality product is produced at the backend and backlogs do not occur.

Whether vehicles arrive on-site without keys, the vendor requests additional keys or general losses / damages occur, keys can cause major issues in preparation turnaround.

Main dealer channels are expensive, require a range of documentation to order and then there’s booking, delivery and programming to arrange.

Local car locksmith services cannot cater for a complete range of vehicles any / or keep up with demand - resulting in output timescales being delayed or vehicles not meeting the clients required standards.

Brining external contractors onto site also opens up a large and complex range of aftermarket part and programming possibilities, ranging from safe repairs with OEM parts and equipment to dangerous repairs which cause irrepairable digital damage to vehicles.

  • Key related issues cause major backlogs to preparation output.
  • Main dealer repair channels are expensive and time consuming.
  • Local car locksmiths cannot keep up with demand output.
  • Dangerous aftermarket repairs cause permanent vehicle damage.
