The latest in replacement vehicle key technology, at a fraction of the cost

As car manufacturers have tried to make your pride and joy safe from break in or theft, the humble car key has gradually been armed with more and more layers of electronic security.  A chip or transponder. A unique code. All of these well-intentioned measures have progressively made them more difficult and therefore much more expensive to duplicate.

If you have suffered the inconvenience of realising you have locked your key in your alarmed vehicle or worse that you have lost it altogether, the news that a replacement key from a dealer can cost between £200 and £500 will only have made matters worse.

Here at Dent’s we have the latest in car key technology. Locked out of your car? We can gain entry to your vehicle. Lost your car keys? We can obtain your vehicle’s unique code, and programme a replacement car key for you.

If your car key is broken or you just need another key we can help with this too.

As a responsible security company, we may need to perform checks to confirm vehicle ownership, as you might expect.

Our experienced, knowledgeable car locksmith staff - with support from industry leading vehicle security specialists Hickleys and 3D group - can resolve your problem quickly.

With the most advanced car keys and remotes we can often provide next day solutions, when a dealer may take up to 2 weeks to obtain a replacement key. We may even be able to help the same day in some cases. We can source a new car key and remote and programme it often for a fraction of the price a dealer will charge. And we can come to you. Your car doesn’t have to be off the road causing you massive inconvenience.

Dent’s can take the pain out of losing your car key and replace it quickly for a fraction of the cost.

We supply transponder chipped and coded keys for commercial vehicles and motorcycles as well.

We can reprogram your vehicle using our safe state of the art, portable technology. We don’t need to tamper with your car as it is designed to be programmed with this information.
