The Opportunity is Now!

For the first time in 30 years, real automotive key replacement is coming back to retail.


We’re on a mission to make replacing car keys simple and affordable again. Today, automotive keys are more complicated and expensive than ever before. What used to be easy for retailers has become difficult. Increasing costs, computer systems, and overall complexity drove many out of the business.

But nearly everyone carries keys and the key replacement market has become a multi-billion dollar industry controlled almost entirely by dealerships. With prices often topping $400, consumers are increasingly looking for affordable alternatives.

Thanks to recent innovations from Car Keys Express, it’s now easier than ever for retailers to profit from the growing opportunity in modern keys. We created this video series to show why now is the right time for retailers to capitalize on this unique opportunity.

THE EVOLUTION OF CAR KEYS

Car keys used to be simple. Now, highly sophisticated keys, once reserved for luxury cars, are in all types of vehicles—even bargain models.

THE THREE C'S: COST, COMPUTERS, AND COMPLEXITY

Decades ago, you could get car keys replaced anywhere. But over time, the key replacement business shifted from the corner store to the dealership.

EVERYONE. EVERY DAY.

When you leave home every day, you take five things: the clothes on your back, the shoes on your feet, your phone, wallet, and keys.

MONOPOLY

For decades, carmakers have enjoyed a virtual monopoly on the replacement key and remote consumer market.

PILOT

Recently, we partnered with a big box retailer to demonstrate consumer demand for our key replacement solutions. The results surprised even us.

BIGGERTHAN

Think of a service you could only get from a professional that’s been turned into a retail product you can buy off a shelf... It doesn’t happen often.

As vehicles last longer and longer, drivers are increasingly desperate to find affordable key replacement solutions.
