Here at Keyishoes, we are able to offer a full Auto, domestic and commercial locksmith service. However our specialism is Car Key & Remote programming
work. To that end we are in a process of investing in some of the latest technology to improve our service to valued customers.
So what is changing? Up to now, we have been able to provide a comprehensive locksmith service but in many cases this has been a slower service than we would like where all keys have been lost. This is because the only in-house machine to cut keys to code have been the older Ford / Jaguar Tibbe keys like the one in the image. This meant that we obtained the key code for you then had the key supplied the next morning by our supplier ready cut. The great news is that we are now able to cut the key to code using the latest in portable computer cutting machines! This machine can cut most types of car keys in minutes to a code from our vehicle and can also make near perfect copies even from worn keys by reading the code of the key automatically!
A further investment has been made to improve our ability to program keys and remotes to VAG based vehicles both old and new. The VAG group includes: Volkswagon, Audi, Porsche, Bentley, SEAT and Skoda. These vehicles assist in keeping the cost down and increasing our coverage of models we have purchased the VAG-COM (VCDS) a laptop based aftermarket software system used by many independent garages to diagnose faults on VAG vehicles. VAG-COM has the enviable reputation of being one of the best VAG diagnostic systems available outside of the main dealership! We are also looking into how this software might be useful to amatuer mechanics working on VAG vehicles. It may even help to diagnose potential problems before purchasing or selling a VAG Vehicle*
In due course we will be taking delivery of further software to assist in additional accuracy of immobiliser code reading for VAG based vehicles and precoding of transponder chips also useful for programming keys for even the latest models of VAG cars. We aim to specialise in programming keys and remote to all types of VAG vehicles.
In the meantime though, we are now fully equipped to respond to emergency car key cutting and programming for almost all makes and models of vehicle, even at the roadside and capable of making keys even when all keys are lost. We can even open your vehicle to recover keys locked inside using non-destructive professional techniques.
