Car Keys Express to supply the Universal Car Remote to more than 4,000 Walmart stores nationwide.

LOUISVILLE, KY, January 18, 2018— Car Keys Express announces an agreement to supply the Universal Car Remote to U.S. Walmart stores. Consumers can expect to find the Universal Car Remote in Walmart aisles near the end of February.

The Universal Car Remote controls the remote keyless entry systems for thousands of automotive makes and models. At the touch of a button, the remote performs the same functions as the vehicle's original keyless entry remote, such as locking and unlocking doors, panic, even opening the truck.

Mark Lanwehr, Founder and Owner of Car Keys Express said, "Supplying Walmart with the Universal Car Remote adds to our company’s impressive growth and strengthens our position in the U.S. market. We are pleased Walmart has implemented a full store roll-out and look forward to working with them to promote the continued success of the Universal Car Remote."

The Universal Car Remote replaces 216 OEM keyless entry car remotes and is compatible with 62 million vehicles from 1997-2016. At a retail price of $29.95, it costs consumers less than half of what they’d pay for a traditional dealership replacement and with easy, “no tools” setup, is 100% customer programmable.

Lanwehr added, “The Universal Car Remote is tough, water-resistant, and so reliable it’s backed by a three-year, industry-leading warranty. Finally, retailers can satisfy their customers’ needs for replacement car remotes by selling a single device, and consumers can avoid the time, expense, and hassle of a dealership service appointment.”

The Universal Car Remote is just one of multiple direct-to-consumer projects for Car Keys Express. The company’s discount mobile key replacement division, is rolling out consumer service nationwide in 2018. Retailers can offer full-service key replacement in store using Car Keys Express NOW! or consumers can order service at a location of their choice with the Car Keys Express kiosk.
