Can you cut and programme keys I buy off the internet?

With car keys bought off the internet, the chips are usually "locked" to a particular car, even when the key itself is a blank. The description often says that the key and chip are blanks however this is almost always not true. If you provide the key blank we can attempt to cut and programme the key to your car however, we must point out that if it doesn't work, due to the fact that the key IS locked to another car, then a diagnostic fee of £50 will be charged.  Sometimes trying to save yourself money may not work out in the long run. If in doubt, just give us a call before you buy anything on the internet and we can help to advise you the most economical and effective route to take.

There are thousands of different types of keys, so the chances of you purchasing the keys to match your own are rather slim.
