Car Keys Express Launches Mobile-to-Consumer Service.
The successful key replacement company transforms how consumers replace keys.
Louisville, KY October 11, 2017: Car Keys Express, the world’s largest key replacement company, is extending its service to consumers. The service provides on-site, instant automotive key replacement without the time, expense, and hassle of a dealership service appointment. Customers use an Uber-inspired webpage to “choose their own price” and one of three service levels.
Priority—same-day service with ability to further upgrade to “Custom Critical” for service on nights and weekends.
Standard—pick a later time for service at a lower price.
Economy—Car Keys Express technicians are cutting keys at businesses across the United States. By opting to meet a technician at one of their regularly scheduled stops, consumers get maximum savings.
Car Keys Express is best known for discount mobile key replacement for fleets and dealerships. The company has been growing rapidly since the 2000s as carmakers began to add expensive features and technologies to keys. When asked why the company was moving into the consumer segment Owner and Founder Mark Lanwehr said, “Increases in automotive key technology have driven up their cost. In the eighties, you’d pay a few dollars to replace a set of keys, today it can exceed a thousand dollars.”
Lanwehr added, “We’ve spent fifteen years perfecting a mobile solution for businesses to manage this increasing cost. It’s grown us into a nationwide company and put us on Inc. Magazine’s list of the fastest growing companies two years in a row. Now we’re offering consumers the same solution. Carmakers have had a virtual monopoly for decades. We’re the first to bring it to consumers. With 250,000,000 North American drivers, it's a significant opportunity.”
