You may be required to offer a 24 hour service so this could effect your other commitments.

I would prefer if you are not based in Brighton so I will more than likely choose someone who is not too local as I do not want to create more competition in my area but will consider if you are going to target your advertising in another town in Sussex or beyond.

Initially we would meet for a chat and if you wanted to go ahead, I would require a 50% deposit to start the training and the remaining 50% at the end of the training, at this point, the keys to the van will be handed over and you will be a new business owner!

The price for everything is £20,000

Below is a recent article from the Argus Newspaper warning people of this rise in van thefts in Sussex.
“POLICE are linking a string of thefts which have stripped tradesmen of thousands of pounds worth of tools.


Vans have been targeted across Brighton and Hove in the past month, with thieves clearing them out and damaging the vehicles in the process.

Across the city in October, 29 incidents of vans being broken into were reported to police and the pattern has continued into November.

Most recently, roofer Darren Page was targeted.

The owner of D Page Roofing has been leaving his van at one of his employee’s houses in Hollingbury Rise, Hollingdean, because he has an injury and is unable to drive.

He was told yesterday morning by the worker that thieves had broken into the van and stolen his tools.

Mr Page, 36, said: “I’ve missed out on £150 and my two laborers have lost £100 each.

“I didn’t take my tools indoors because you just don’t think it’s going to happen.

“I’m going to keep all of the vans parked outside my house at weekends now. It’s happening everywhere.”

Patcham has been the hot spot in the crime spree. Of the 29 thefts reported last month, 16 were carried out there.

Yesterday we reported a tradesman had £6,000 worth of tools stolen from his van in Vale Avenue on Sunday evening – the second time he was targeted in two weeks.

There have been 21 thefts in the area in a two-week period. Between November 6 and 7, five more were reported. Police have now sent more officers to the area.

Sergeant James Ward said: “We have seen an increase in theft from vans in the Patcham area, 21 in the past two weeks with 16 committed overnight between October 25 and 26 and overnight between October 28 and 29 and a further five offences between November 6 and 7.

“We are linking all of them and are investigating them as a series. We have increased our patrols in the area.”

How much does a replacement car key cost?

The cost of car keys vary from around £45 – £300 depending on the make and model of your car. If you are looking to get a spare cut from an original it will be much cheaper than if you have lost all the keys to your car and you need one made from scratch. The price also varies depending on if you want a remote locking key or a standard manual key that you have to insert into the drivers door lock to open it.

Main dealers are very expensive! – Always contact your local locksmiths first to get a price before going straight to the dealer. It’s worth shopping around to see who offers the best price.

Most auto locksmiths are able to come out and cut a key on the roadside using specialist equipment. You could also go into your local locksmiths shop and ask for a second copy to be made, however, most places like Timpsons will not be able to cut you a key as they do not use diagnostic equipment that needs to be plugged into your car. This is to program the transponder chip that talks to the immobiliser in your car.

All vehicles after 1995 are fitted with transponder keys, some can be copied without needing access to your car, however most nowadays require access to the OBD port in the car to communicate with the security features and ECU which is basically your cars brain.

If you are looking to get a spare key cut in the Sussex area or you have lost all the keys to your car – DO NOT PANIC! 

Firstly fill out the contact form below and we will get back to you with a price. Our trained auto locksmiths can provide spare car keys at a fraction of the cost and even if you have lost all the keys to your car we can come out and produce a new one and get you back on the road in no time.
