If you are in the unfortunate position of having lost your Saab keys then we are able to help you. All work can be carried out at your home, work or premises. There is no need to obtain keys, codes or have your pride and joy dragged onto the back of a transporter and taken to the main dealers; we take care of it all.

Most people expect it to be expensive when they lose their car keys but they don't realise it can be around £1000 to have replacement Saab keys from the Saab dealers. Not only will the cost be very high, you will also have to have your vehicle recovered to the dealers and that's not easy and usually expensive with no keys. You will also have to wait 7 to 10 days for the work to be carried out.

Donít let the dealers tell you that the CIM or the Twice unit must be replaced costing £700-£1,400 and taking several days, when we can complete this work (usually the same day) for a fraction of that cost.

Saab dealers will usually tell you it is not possible for anybody other than themselves to program keys to Saab vehicles that is not the case. We can program keys to these vehicles and normally next day.
