A Simple Key Problem Can Be Very Expensive

If you own a modern, precision automobile, you have probably accepted that you’ll be getting any replacement keys from the dealer and paying a substantial price for them. The good news is: if you believe that, you have bought into a myth. You can get your car access problems solved on your own terms. In fact, the even better news is that you’re not bound by the dealer’s hours and location when you need keys. The best news: you get the help of a trustworthy registered, family-owned, licensed, bonded and insured locksmith. You can rest easy, this is what we do and we’re great.

Servicemembers: You May Be New to the Area, But You Know Who to Call

As a member of the Ledyard, Groton, and New London CT community, we reach out to service members in the local area, offering a 10% military discount on our already very reasonable pricing for everything from lockouts to rekeying your Navy or Marine family vehicle if your keys get lost during a change of station. We’re here for you to keep you moving.

Modern Car Keys are Complicated, But Calling On Us For Help Isn’t

Car key programming is a high-tech endeavor and often involves making sure that the key has a proper chip, the fob is set to communicate properly, and the traditional or laser-cut key fits your car’s lock. On top of it all, your car’s computer holds the code which allows everything to work and your car to start. You may need our services to recreate a lost key, but we can also help if your high-tech key is not doing the job when you insert and turn it. You may not know an EEPROM from an ECU, and that’s ok: call us to talk about how to get things fixed.
