Replacing Renault key card at Renault Garage
Reason for writing this article is simple… The horror stories we have heard from our customers. You will probably assume that we will be writing about our competitors locksmiths. Nothing further from the truth. The worst and most bizarre stories we have heard so far about Renault key card replacement service are those that involve Renault garage or Renault main dealer.
Many of our customers before contacting us to get a new Renault key card have tried to deal with Renault garage. The stories are dreadful and we decide to share them with you as we simply don’t understand why Renault doesn’t respect their customers and extort money instead of helping customer out.
I don’t mean here the average waiting time of two weeks for a replacement Renault key card, handing out zillions of papers confirming that you are the owner of your car, towing your Renault to the nearest garage and costs involving it… I know it sounds wrong but it seems as we all got used to this practice when in a need of a replacement Renault key card. In a perfect world you should not be made to go through all of this just to get a new Renault key card. Especially that you are paying them a lot of money…
One example stands out from the crowd. A lovely lady who contacted us to get a replacement key card for her Renault Megane. She was in a fortunate situation that her car was starting up however the keyless feature stopped working and even when using buttons she could not lock or unlock her Renault Megane. Before contacting us, she was forced to use Renault garage. As usual she had to wait two weeks for a new key card, when it finally arrived, she went to the garage just to discover that the key card they were trying to sell her was not working. She was quoted £470 + VAT! When she pointed out that the key card is not working as it should she was told by a so called Renault specialist that it is her problem as the Renault Megane she was the owner of had an on board computer of a Renault Scenic?!? She was also told that despite the new Renault key card is not working she must still pay them. Needless to say she was very frustrated and had not paid them. Finally one of her friends recommended us to her. To cut the story short, she had bought 2 new Renault key cards from us and paid £260 including us coming over to her. Where the difference comes from? And let me tell you, not from the new Renault key cards quality, as the key cards we use come straight from Renault factory in France. The difference comes from greediness, lack of respect for clients and lack of understanding that money doesn’t grow on trees.
Sad to say but it seems that Renault garages and main dealers use the fact that you are desperate and that your car is worthless without a working Renault key card. They use this fact as leverage and try to benefit greatly from your misfortune.
Another gentleman who we supplied and programmed Renault Laguna replacement key card for was quoted by Renault garage £600 just for one key card. The cost of one replacement key card, call out and key card programming with us was £140. Can you imagine? We are not trying to make ourselves look like an angels here, we also earn money, but a reasonable amount, not the cost of the entire car. Therefore when you will be looking for a new Renault key card, have a look at our reviews, read forums and ask friends. And very important thing – don’t give Renault any financial information until you get a full quote and a working key card. Best of all just give us a call and let us sort out a replacement Renault key card for you.
