Cheap isnt always best part 2
this article cheap isnt always best part 2 follows on from part 1 , Nottingham car keys appreciate that everyone seeks a bargain , especially with car keys as these can be expensive items , but sometimes the cheapest option is often far from cheap in the long run despite the claims made by some , the fact is that cheap isnt always best .
Today we feature renault key cards , these cards are an expensive purchase even at cost and trade prices , yet the likes of online sellers and some cheap service providers sell these at prices far below the cost price of a card , How can they do this ?
The reason is simple , these are counterfeit cards from china and not genuine renault cards , which is why on line you will see prices from £35 to £75 for a card which is lower than the cost price of a genuine card , some will supply as genuine despite being a copy , those who deal cash in hand will offer a guarantee that they rarely honour .
The copy cards on the whole are extremely unreliable , many fail in just weeks , some get lucky and get one that lasts a year or more , but most suffer failures in just a few days , weeks or months , the solder joints are poor and on the whole the quality is poor , some look real until you open them up .
How do we know this ? we have sampled almost all of the copy cards available , our own testing has proven to us that we couldnt offer these to our customers as we guarantee all keys for 12 months , these we couldnt guarantee for 12 weeks and in some cases 12 days . there are a number of copy cards available all of very different quality , some will last the year and more but many will not .
Nottingham car keys only stock genuine renault cards , we will not sell inferior unreliable products that cant be guaranteed for a full 12 months , our customers and our own reputation are too important to risk on cheap counterfeit products .
Of course its your money and your choice , if you choose to go ahead with a cheap copy card for your renault then you at least do so knowing the quality issues and the high likleyhood of failure of the card , so at least able to make a choice knowing the facts , we believe in this case , if you buy copy then you buy twice so a false economy as in many cases just a temporary fix , again how do we know this ?
Well apart from our own testing on these , we attend more jobs per week on failed renault cards than any other key type , many of these are unhappy people who bought cheap first time around and now cant get a guarantee honoured and some in just weeks , as a short term cheap fix there ok but not long term on the whole , if a reliable copy card appears and passes all of our own tests we will offer a cheaper aftermarket solution to our customers , but until then we will not offer our customers inferior unreliable products .
when the price differs by a staggering amount between one supplier and another , its not always because one is greedy , theres normally good reason , an old saying of you only get what you pay for is very true with renault cards , Nottingham car keys only ever supply genuine renault cards which are all fully guaranteed for 12 months .
we would only ever advise customers to buy these from reputable auto locksmiths or the main dealer , always get a written invoice stating that it is a genuine card and guaranteed for 12 months , if your supplier states in writing its genuine , you have a comeback or a case against them , if you have in writing that its guarnteed for 12 months you have a case and a comeback , with a cheap copy card from a cash in hand supplier you have none of this , for some it works out but for others its a false economy and often a costly mistake to make , so buy wisely and buy genuine and get this and a guarantee on invoice in writing .
