Following the satisfactory introduction of the KEY SAFE unit, we have now introduced charging by the length of time the key has been out of the KEY SAFE.

This is how it works: -

The KEY SAFE records the time that your SECRET NUMBER was used to remove the key and again when it is used to put the key back.

Each hire period is allowed 15 minutes to set up and 15 minutes to pack up.

The minimum hire period is 1 hour, so anyone returning the key within 1 hour 30 minutes will be charged for 1 hour.

For all longer periods they will be charged in multiples of half an hour.

This more accurate system allows for greater flexibility as you only pay for the time you have the key.

Anyone requiring further information please contact John Hilton by phone or text on 07743 901327 or e-mail at
