Dropping Off a Key

Procedure for dropping off your keys at a Keycafe SmartBox

Dropping off a key is an easy process that can be done with or without the Keycafe iOS or Android app. Once dropped off, the keys will be stored in an isolated key bin and available for others to pickup.

To drop off keys with a Keycafe fob already attached, please proceed with the following steps:
