Company now offers a “do-it-yourself” key replacement solution in addition to their full-service mobile key replacement service.
San Francisco, CA., January 24, 2019—At the 2019 National Automobile Dealers Association (NADA) Show, Car Keys Express will debut EZ Kits. The new product provides essential inventory for managing automotive key replacement for the most common makes and models on the road today. This offering complements their popular full-service mobile key replacement service by supporting dealerships who cut keys “in house.” Both offerings are designed to streamline operations, reduce vehicle turntime, and lower costs.
Car Keys Express revolutionized the way dealerships handle key replacement by providing discount, on-site key replacement at guaranteed lowest prices. They offer a unique service: technicians stop by weekly and maintain a dealership’s entire pre-owned inventory with complete sets of keys for what they’d normally pay for two keys. Mobile service is available in over 8,000 cities in the U.S. and Canada with expansion into even more markets currently underway.
For businesses who choose to cut their own keys, EZ Kits increase margins and coverage and reduce key replacement costs for businesses already cutting keys. EZ Kits contain devices featuring Car Keys Express’s patented, award-winning universal key technology. This “universal” feature allows the company’s devices to function across multiple vehicle makes, models, and years. This benefit lets dealerships stock fewer keys and cover the majority of their pre-owned inventory. This technology dramatically reduces the cost and complexity of automotive key replacement. Select kits include the company’s Simple™ Keys, which include a proprietary EZ Installer™, allowing for easy key pairing—no programming equipment required.
“Our on-site, mobile key maintenance service grew us into the world’s largest, most-trusted key replacement company, but we’re always looking for new opportunities to expand our offering to meet client needs.” said Mark Lanwehr, Founder and CEO of Car Keys Express. “While our North American presence continues to grow, there are still areas, mostly rural or remote, where our van service is not available. Making our universal products available in these EZ kits allows us to provide discount key replacement to businesses in these areas and creates an opportunity in our current markets for those who prefer to handle key replacement in-house.”
Car Keys Express is exhibiting at NADA, booth #7129W, where attendees can learn more about the company’s key replacement solutions.
