  • These guys should advertise that they can pretty much do any Car Remote. I went to Archibolds to get a spare remote for my Range Rover and was quoted over $1000 plus it would take over 10 days to receive it. These guys took just over an hour and it cost me $448 and great customer service. Would highly recommend. Oh, and the remote appears to be the genuine part. Thanks guys!!!!

    Great key cutting experience today. Competitors wanted to charge an exorbitant amount or refused the job but Christchurch Lock and Key sorted the problem for a very reasonable price.

    After I had lost the key to my rental car, Christchurch Lock & Key was quick and efficient in helping me to get a new one cut. They offered a great price value and the service was top tier.

  • Car was broken into on Xmas eve and the lock smashed. I was quoted $100, told to get a lock from a wrecker, and that the job could be done after Jan 11. It is possible / likely that I got this quote from a different business and took it to the wrong place - nearly four weeks later. My mistake. However, when I questioned my bill for $230, I just got a totally dismissive response from Mike. Basically got talked at across the room and told how it was. Never even looked at me or showed any interest that he was dealing with a person and certainly no interest in dealing with a person who believed there was a problem with the bill. If a customer is telling you he got quoted $100 for the job, even if its not your company and I've got it wrong, it deserves your ears and eyes because its still means you and your business are overcharging! Second, you are dealing with someone who has already been the victim of a crime and been ripped off. A little humanity would go a long way.I also got charged for two new keys I hadn't asked for and wasn't informed of. At least the younger technician explained why he did this and talked to me, not at me.I can't fault the job done, time taken and the expertise given.

    Mini key replacement. Fantastic service from Mike. The remote button on my key had broken. I posted the key. It was remade the same day and sent back. Very quick service. And even better the key works, don't need to insert the spare key in the lock to open and close the door. Much cheaper than getting a new key from BMW.
