What We Do

Since the early 1990’s vehicle manufacturers have increased the level of security found on vehicles, for example, the addition of transponder technology. This has reduced car theft, but has also made it more difficult and expensive for owners to replace keys – this is where our expert knowledge comes in.

All our locksmiths have extensive knowledge and expertise in non-destructive vehicle entry, cutting and programming replacement transponder keys and remotes. Where codes are not available our locksmiths can decode the locks without damage and the need for locks to be removed thereby ensuring we can get your vehicle back on the road quickly and with minimal disruption. Our locksmiths will attend your vehicle and undertake all work on site whether it’s at home, work or at the roadside, avoiding the expense and inconvenience of having to be lifted/towed to a main dealer and being off the road for around 5-10 days whilst waiting for a replacement key.

As the automotive industry progresses and introduces new technology, we at AV Auto Locksmiths also strive to keep up with the latest computerised technology, investing in all the newest, market leading software and diagnostic equipment. This ensures that our locksmiths can provide not only standard immobiliser keys but remote keys, keyless start remote fobs and keycards.
