Remote Starters

Professional Remote Car Starter Installs


Convenience and comfort for your busy life.

We install premium remote starter parts from brands like iDataStart, Autostart and Viper. 

Did you just pick-up a Prostart remote starter from Canadian Tire?  We install those, too.

Remote starters are easy and safe to use and make it simple to warm your vehicle in the cold months and cool it in the hot months.

Use your factory remote to start your vehicle

Keep your purse or wallet light – no extra fob necessary!  When installed, press your lock button 3 times (or lock, unlock, lock) to start the vehicle.  It’s so easy, maintenance-free and convenient to use.


confirm that your vehicle started when you can’t see it

Our favourite!  Start your car from the grocery line checkout and know that it started thanks to the strong FM signal and LCD screen that tells you it’s running.  This system’s a game-changer for winter living.

A great range for your busy lifestyle!  Get up to 1 mile of range and a pair of 5-button remotes so you can also control your locks with ease. Works from inside the buildings.

Remote Starter FAQ

For over 22 years we have always guaranteed our work for you.  We offer a full manufacturer warranty on all parts used for your install and a no-hassle lifetime warranty on our labour.  We're always here to help if you need us.

NO!  This is a very common misconception that we would love to clear up.  As ministry-certified 310K installers, our work does not void any warranty and you are protected by the Canada Consumer Protection Act (similar to the Magnuson-Moss Warranty Act in the USA).  In fact, we install our systems into brand new vehicles on behalf of local dealerships daily.  Our work is trusted and we always stand behind it for you.

Our favourite systems to install are iDataStart and Fortin.  We love and trust these brands and have been working with them for many years.  The exact one we use sometimes varies by vehicle, but we explore all options for you to get you the best features available and the best pricing possible.
