Chipped Key Programming Available
As of October 2020, I will be able to make keys for "Some" of the newer vehicles that require the "Programming of Chipped Keys"
into the vehicles computer before the vehicle will start.
At this time my "Chipped Key" stock is somewhat limited.
Chipped keys and programming is available
for some of the following:
GMC, Chevrolet, Pontiac, Chrysler, Dodge, Ford, vehicles.
I also have in stock, a few Import keys like:
Nissan, Toyota, Mazda, Honda and Mitsubishi.
As I acquire more key stock for this type of application,
I will be able to service more of these newer vehicles in the near future and the coming new year.
Stay tuned for more updates...
Due to safety concerns in the winter months, when the roads are iced up and very slippery, I am ONLY servicing the Downtown Vernon area.
When these poor road conditions exist, I will not be servicing:
The Mission Hills area,
The Rise or
My services will return to these areas when the roads are well sanded and clear of packed snow and ice.
PS: I drive a 2 wheel drive van with studded rear tires, going up the hills, not so bad. Coming down the hills, a "Pucker Factor" of 10.5...

I have auto deposit setup, so unless your bank insists on the security "Question and Answer" it's not necessary. if it does, we can figure that out when the time comes.
Refusal to pay for services rendered
Failure to pay the invoiced amount in a timely fashion will incur the sharing of a scanned copy of the offending "Unpaid Invoice" in my Photo Gallery Section below.
Damn, I really dislike this kind of thing but maybe I can save some other hard working Service Tech's some grief by informing them of my bad luck in trying to collect an honest wage and make a living...
I guess some folks don't understand how little a "Self Employed, Mobile Service Tech" actually takes home after Licencing, Insurance, Expenses and Taxes...
Well, they get 35 Days to pay in full or have the Invoice posted below in the Photo Gallery Section...

Well, my old 1984 Chevy service van is getting pretty tired at 400,000 Km+, and it's getting time to retire the old beast.
Yea I know, it's ugly too.... /lol
It has served me well over the last 8 yrs and does not owe me a dime...
With that being said, the cost of maintaining this van is getting expensive and parts are hard to find.
It's time to put it out to pasture I think.
I have acquired a White 1990 Dodge Ram 3500, a retired B-Series Ambulance which is in the process of being made ready to pickup where the Chevy will leave off.
Though the Dodge needs some minor body work and fresh paint in the new year.
I think it will work out just fine for the foreseeable future.
Thank You again and Be Safe,
Coming to the end of 2020
Well we are almost into the 2020 Christmas Season and I wish you all Seasons Greetings and a Happy New Year...
I also would like to thank all of the folks for their patronage in supporting my business here in Vernon and Surrounding Area over the last couple of years.
I hope to serve you all again in the future some time, should the need arise.

I would like to thank all of my clients for your patronage,

Emergency Lock Out Services
I received a phone call requesting “Emergency Lock Out Service” on the morning of July 30/20 at 9:12am 45 Km north of Vernon, BC.
A verbal agreement was struck during the phone call with the client that I would go to her location and unlock the vehicle.
After arriving at the gas station only to find the client MIA, the attendant told me she had gotten her car unlocked and had left.
A 90 km round trip for nothing...
This is happening all to often and for me, was the last straw...
Due to these unscrupulous clients calling multiple forms of rescue with a "who ever gets there first gets paid" attitude, and the rest are out of luck for our fuel and time...
These people do not even have the common decency to Call or Text back and say: "I got in and I no longer require your services. Ty..."
So... I will now be requiring a Deposit Payment In Advance, via e-Transfer for my Service Call and wait for the deposit to clear, before I leave the Vernon city limits.
Any other services required after my arrival will be added to the invoice and billed accordingly.
I do apologize for any inconvenience this necessary change to my billing practices may cause..
Have you been in any of these situations before?
Has this happened to you?
Should this happen to you I am able to get you inside.
Call me: (250) 870-0962.

Positive: Professionalism, Punctuality, Quality
Alex was great! It was such a silly mistake to make, especially on a Sunday (out of hours rate), but Alex was very kind and found me quickly to help me get the keys out of my locked car after grocery shopping. He was professional, punctual, super friendly, and knows what he's doing!
Thanks again Alex.

Alex came to my home the day I called him and checked all my locks, repaired two of them and told me they were all in excellent working condition and that unless it was aesthetics, it wasn't necessary to replace them. He is a talented locksmith, timely and affordable. Recommended!

Came to my place at 12:30 AM when I got locked out. The lock on my door is a VERY secure lock of better quality that you would find on most houses, and they were able to get in! The locksmith was very friendly and engaging, and very understanding of my situation. I would definitely recommend Roc-Key's to anyone who needs an emergency locksmith, or any lock worked on.
