We have been using Tony for about ten years on-and-off, when we need him, obviously, we don't use him when we are not locked out of something! But from time to time in the valeting business, a central locking system will go off on it's own, or a customer loses a key when they have left a car with us, etc. Tony is always easy to reach, very reliable and very reasonable.
He actually came recommended to us by a dealership.
KAT also do commercial and private premisis.
They can be reached on 01245 708814

We belive that if you have an insurance claim, you can insist that the work be carried out by the company of your choice - C.A.R. would be our choice!
They can also refurbish alloy wheels and can do any vehicle up to the size of a commercial.
They also have a 24hr recovery hotline. So if you are standing by the side of the road after a crash, call them and they will come and get your car.
