Reid’s Remotes is a family owned and family run small business based in East Victoria Park, Perth, West Australia.
On April 4th 1980 Kevin & Lynette Reid started a shoe repair business called Reids Bootmakers. The business was based at 2d Basinghall St. East Victoria Park and they offered many services including shoe repair and cutting both house and car keys.
In 2010 the business was purchased by their daughter Erica & myself (her husband Joe). We expanded the business services to include selling replacement garage, gate, home security and vehicle remote controls in 2012. Noting a very fragmented market we wanted to be able to offer a one stop shop for the most common remote controls and vehicle keys. Over the last 5 years we have grown this list to include over 1400 products and hope to eventually get all of those products listed on this website.
In 2021 we have now moved the business to a new location which offers a shop front and extensive workshop area where we can complete key programming to more modern vehicles in a controlled environment with more advanced tools.
We are constantly working to offer the best possible price on all our remote controls and keys in both the factory genuine and aftermarket segments. Where possible we test all aftermarket products and only stock those that meet our high standards.
We now stock replacement remote controls for over 450 different garage and gate remotes alone. This number will continue to grow as new remotes are released or new manufacturers enter the Australian market. All remotes that can be programmed by the user come with instructions explaining how to do this and we will also be adding videos to our Youtube channel and this site as we go forward.
With car keys and remotes some can be programmed to your car by following what we call, an on board procedure. Onboard procedures can involve turning the ignition on and off a number of times or pressing buttons on the dash in a particular pattern. Others remotes and keys require special diagnostic equipment to program them and this will be identified on each product when you look at the features of that item. We are licensed to carry out diagnostic programming of keys and remotes in WA and our license number is MRB8165.
We are adding new products all the time so if you cannot find what you are looking for please feel free to email us. Our latest car remote generator makes aftermarket flip keys and remotes for over 600 vehicles across 43 car makes. More are added weekly and so we will be uploading the new details as soon as we can once the remotes or flip keys have been thoroughly tested. We hope you find what you want but if not please email or call and we will do our level best to help you out.
You can see examples of our work on our social media pages and find news about new products as they are added to the range.
Hours of operation:
Although our online store is open 24 hours per day, we are also a bricks and mortar store operating 8.30am to 5pm Mon to Friday and so emails will be responded to as soon as possible during these times. We observe Western Australian public holidays.
Reids Remotes only sells new remotes we do not sell repaired or second hand remotes. Genuine replacement remotes are officially approved and operate the same as your original. Aftermarket options are the same electronically as the original remote but may come in a different looking case.
The REIDS REMOTES website is owned and operated by Joe Mahon T/A Reids Remotes.
