Posted 11/14/22 by Elspeth Myers

Los­ing, dam­ag­ing, or hav­ing your car’s key fob stolen is one of the most frus­trat­ing prob­lems you deal with as a car own­er. And not to men­tion, a faulty car remote could stop you from enter­ing your vehi­cle and dri­ving to your des­ti­na­tion. Also, a faulty spare car key can jeop­ar­dise your car’s security.

3D Autokeys spe­cialise in car key solu­tions! So, whether it’s a bro­ken car key or a jammed car door lock, our high­ly trained tech­ni­cians have you covered. 

Hav­ing a key fob replaced or repaired at a car deal­er­ship can be expen­sive. For this rea­son, 3D Autokeys offer uni­ver­sal car remotes. They are a quick, afford­able, and secure solution.

I had lost my sec­ond key. Obvi­ous­ly tried my local Jaguar deal­er. After 3 calls, they final­ly called me back. They quot­ed me £450. Said that it would take up to 2 hours to make and repro­gram the new key. One call to 3D Autokeys — appoint­ment arranged for 3 days lat­er. They came to my home. Chris was here for 30 min­utes and pre­sent­ed me with a brand-new Jaguar key, all pro­grammed and work­ing per­fect­ly. Cost £130. What great ser­vice and price. They are to be high­ly recommended.”
