Irmo Lock Company is a charming, clean, and professional individually owned local business. I needed keys copied and was very happy with the selection available. The receptionist was very friendly and funny, and made a suggestion that we acted on.And the keys fit perfectly. That has not always been the case having keys copied at other places.I'm very happy with this company and will continue to use their services.

I bought a house a few months ago that had Caradeo doors and locks. There was a time when these were the best locks you could have...and the most expensive. In their time, they were beautiful.We wanted to keep them, but knew it would be hard to replace the old locks with new ones. I called Irmo Locks because of their great reviews. They proved worthy of their reviews.Irmo Locks measured the doors and locks, researched where they could be found, and set after finding them. Many weeks followed until they had found the locks and were ready to install them.They sent Bruce Blakey who spent over six hours making sure every lock fit and worked perfectly. There are people who call themselves Locksmiths. Bruce is the real deal!My doors are beautiful. I cannot praise Irmo Lock Company higher than I have. I have simply told you the story of my experience.

These guys have been around a long time. I grew up in Irmo and they have always helped me. More recently they helped me get my locks changed quickly at my place of employment. A guy named Will came out, got it done quickly for very reasonably priced. Thanks y’all!

I stopped by Irmo Lock this afternoon having an issue with my key fob. A gentleman (I failed to get his name.) took the fob from me and found that a spring was missing and replaced it at no cost. He was polite and professional and in my opinion went above and beyond in his service. For this I am very appreciative.I have had numerous occasions over the years to utilize their home service and in office purchases. I have always been treated with courtesy and respect. And the price was always fair. I highly recommend Irmo Lock Company for commercial and residential needs.

Jim Hudson recommended pop a lock called them they not get truck running charged 155.00. Then called Irmo lock a couple days later Adam came out the guy erased keys in PCM and also programmed a key with a bad chip in it. Adam had vehicle running in less than 5 minutes. Then called dealer and told them not to recommend pop a lock. They not know what they doing kept telling me I had a bad PCM card. Adam was on time and was very professional. So glad I did not have to have that truck towed to Ford garage thanks to Irmo Lock. Barbara Guzzi

Being in the service business for over 30 years has taught me to really appreciate when a job is done right. Chris identified the problem, showed and explained it to me and then did a perfect job repairing and installing new hardware on our front and rear doors. I will definitely refer others to Irmo Lock Company without reservation.

Adam was very courteous throughout the process. I also love the fact that before he got to my home, I received a text telling me who was coming. The text even included a photo. I think that is awesome and that all businesses should do the same for safety.

My daughter lost here keys while shopping. I stopped by their shop to see if they could help, the spare key was lost a long time ago. I wasn’t expecting them to be able to get to it today but I was told they could do it today. About 45 minutes later Chris texted me to say he was on the way. Chris was very professional and I had a new set of keys in about 30 minutes.The people at the store were equally helpful and professional.

Absolutely The highest level of quality Service. Anytime anywhere, they are there. Professional, knowledgeable and highly proficient technicians. I even had them Move my gun safe and Guy was able to provide several home security devices for my new house. They are so much more than a lock company. They can make your house secure. Thanks Guy!!!
