Changing locks will not stop a thief gaining access to your car.

Surely the Main Dealer is the place for replacement keys?

The main dealers will nearly always require that you bring the car to their location (this will often mean a recovery vehicle). This is not cheap. Dealers do not hold keys in stock, meaning that when you do manage to get your vehicle to the dealership, you'll have to wait while they are supplied from overseas. This can take up to 10 or more working days. These are both massive inconveniences to you.  The Car Key Company Sussex in fact that we can as much as 75% cheaper than a main dealer, delivering a same day service, and we come to the car.
