Some words from our customers

  • Darren C

    I required a secondary key for a Mercedes Benz import I had just purchased, after researching for this service via trademe and MercKeys I came across Dale. Top man, expert knowledge and truly fantastic service. He was simply a breeze to deal with and was very quick and on point. He took all the stress out of the situation for me. Dale, thank you very much Sir!

    Dale from Merckeys is an absolute legend!! A MASTER technician and a stand up bloke!! Dale from Merckeys went above and beyond to accommodate for my situation. Dale worked fast and explained what he was doing step by step for my simple mind. I saved ALOT of money as I was going to get charged an arm and a leg then some from an aftermarket workshop. I give Dale 10 out of 10 rating and will most definitely be recommending Merckeys. Thanks Dale and Merckeys simply the best!!? From a Mercedes owner on a low budget much appreciated.

    Being a Merc owner with a W202 97 C class c230, my old key was beginning to die a slow death until it packed up 2 days ago, at a shopping center. Not able to get back into the car, i asked the Merc dealership down the road to assist, and they told me a new key would cost 3900 and 3 weeks to arrive. With no such time on my hands, I found Merc keys and had such great customer service and assistance from them. 2 hours later my car was up and running with a new key. Thanks again.

My key is damaged. Do I need a replacement?

Not always. At MercKeys, we also offer Mercedes key repairs. If the damage is minor or the electronics are salvageable, we might be able to repair it. This can often be a more cost-effective solution than a full replacement.

Are metal keys better than electronic ones?

Both metal and electronic keys have their merits. Metal keys are robust and less susceptible to electronic malfunctions. On the other hand, electronic keys offer enhanced security features and convenience. The best choice often boils down to personal preference and the model of your Mercedes-Benz.

How does Mercedes key programming work?

The Mercedes key programming service involves syncing your key"s electronics with your vehicle. Modern Mercedes-Benz keys are equipped with a transponder chip. This chip communicates with your car to grant access and ignition. Programming ensures this communication is effective.

Our full guarantee

We're so confident of the quality of our electronic car repairs that we fully guarantee all our electronic parts and electrical repair work for one year.
