Highly recommend! They cut and programmed 2 keys to my Ford Focus and the service cost was $150. Ford wanted to charge me $300 for the 2 keys... I think the choice is obvious... half the price for the same service!

I’m telling you . If you consider going to a dealer to have auto keywork done before Irmo lock it is a huge mistake . I have a 2019 Landrover with the worst possible circumstance . No key lockout . Dealer kept raising quote and was over $2300 and counting , all kinds of security system issues , etc . Yes you read that right . I called Irmo lock , spoke to Melissa . They are fantastic . Very professional , follow up , and saved me a boatload of money!! 80% less than dealer . I owe them homemade cookies and a Christmas present ! The best .

Irmo lock has gone out of their way to help service the locks on our dog park gates. Whenever we have a last minute need or even a late night call because a lock isn't working, Guy and his team are always great about coming out and fixing the situation quickly. There is not another locksmith I would use. Their customer service has earned my loyalty.

I couldn't be happier with this service call. First of all, I got a text when the technician was on the way that showed me his name, photo, and a picture of what he was driving. That was pretty impressive. Clint showed up right on time and I took him around to four different doors that each had one issue or another. Some wouldn't close without really forcing them... and some didn't make contact with the weather strip correctly. Two had new electronic locks that didn't always open or close from my phone or control panel because they weren't aligned properly. Clint fixed all of this while I went back to work. Everything works exactly as it should and he explained how the corrections made the doors far more secure. I would highly recommend Irmo Lock!By the way, I've reviewed them before. They saved me a fortune on my Lexus car keys! Dealership wanted twice what I paid!

Chris was excellent when he came to our yard to make us a new key for our car. The car in specific was an older model and the key needed to be a specific cut. He was nice,friendly and confident in his works. I just wish my dogs were more friendly lol. I honestly would tell anybody who needs keys for the house,car etc to try out this company. The price is affordably and honestly worth it. We got our key in less then 10 minutes. Thank you guys again I hope to call you all in the future. I pray for Much blessings and success for this company.

My day was fine until I lost the chip in my key. Me and 3 other people searched everywhere but could not find the chip. I called roadside and they sent out Chris. He was awesome. He made a situation where I was almost in tears so much better. He was quick and very nice. It took less than 10 minutes to get me going.

I owe my entire life to Irmo Lock Company and Adam. I lost my only set of car keys to my 2005 Toyota Highlander on USC’s campus. After searching high and low, I started making calls to different lock companies and Toyota dealerships. Every company required me to tow my car to them. Irmo Lock Co. was able to give me an accurate quote and met me at my car with a key already made. Adam tested the key and it was jamming a little bit— he apologized and said he would make a new one quickly. It took no longer than 45 minutes from his arrival for me to have keys that didn’t just unlock my car, but turned the engine on. Everyone I spoke with told me that the only way I would be able to get keys that started my car would be through Toyota for a hefty price. Adam provided me with two fully functioning keys for about 1/4th of the price of anywhere else I was quoted. I am SO thankful!!! Support local business! Thank you, Adam!

We had a wonderful experience with Guy, the owner of the company. This was the only place that can program a Mercedes key. My father-in-law dropped one key in the toilet, another had its own set of issues. He tried his best to create keys for us while at the store but there were several obstacles but offered to come out to us to get the job. And he did so today! He is a stellar guy & honest work ethic. I encourage everyone to support this local business for their key needs! Thanks Guy! A+ customer service & experience!
