So many very good locksmiths are struggling today with cheap competitors doing substandard work with substandard materials. And then the host of "national" companies with 50 phone numbers. Lockdecoders, right from the start, has concentrated on development of specialised equipment for auto locksmiths. That is the field where fly-by-nights have problems to function.
The firm is now offering a package for established domestic locksmiths to move successfully into auto work. With other reputable suppliers in the field and our friends at Kennet Leasing we have put together a mighty package of key-cutting, transponder cloning and key programming tools which can be leased over 5 years for just £16 per working day so you don't need to use up your working capital. Not hard to make a profit out of that!
