So what is really better when it comes to vehicle and Gate / Garage remote?
There are many factors to consider when purchasing a new remote. First is the price, a genuine remote can cost twice as much as an aftermarket remote that performs the same function. Second is the quality, there is no reason to purchase a genuine remote if it is almost exactly the same as the aftermarket remote.
So how do you know if the aftermarket remote you are purchasing is quality?
Most locksmith stand behind their products and only sell tried and test quality aftermarket remotes. If you are purchasing online it can be a more difficult to have confidence in what you are purchasing.
In a few instances we have found a few aftermarket remotes which cost half the price of the genuine remote to actually be better quality then the genuine.
With so many options available it may be beneficial to ask around at a few different security locksmiths. Not only can you get better pricing but you may get a valuable insight into what other customers have recommended.
