Requested an appointment from the company website. Promptly called me and confirmed job details and time/date. Service personnel called ahead, arrived on time and completed the work quickly and accurately. Asking if they could re-key the new lock to our old keys was an unexpected extra. I'd give them six stars if I could. Outstanding!

I locked myself out of my 2018 Ram 1500 . I had to be at work appointment in 45 minutes. Josh? /responded to my house in 7 minutes and opened my truck in literally 5 seconds. He even cut me a door key on site. Cool dude and professional. I used Irmo Lock and Key last week keying my house for new construction. Clint done a fabulous job . He is very skilled. I have nothing but good things to say about this company and it's wonderfully talented group of professionals. Thank you.

These guys saved me trailering my Sport Touring motorcycle to the dealer. Stuck fuel cap & no way to gas up. Other lock companies would not touch this thing with a 10 foot pole. Irmo Lock Company came through. Great technicians who got the cap unstuck, cut new key and disassemble and repaired my original fuel cap. Reasonable for a house call- Outstanding! Thank you Chris!

Hi, a special mention to CATHERINE who helped me with amazing wisdom. My key fob and the metal key spit. Somehow i managed to get to my work place however then the car wont start. I called them and Catherine suggested that why dont i try to keep the fob closer to the metal key try to start the car and it eventually did... hadn't she told me this i would have to pay the additional price for towing. Also to mention all this was happening on a Friday. Immediately we went to their location and got a new key fob synced to our car and it worked perfectly well.Its a great company with even greater people... so Kudos!!!God Bless You'll Always 🤗👍

I was locked out of my 2008 Mustang. It was in my driveway and the keys were gone! I called and they were able to come the same day. The gentleman was very professional - unlocked my car and made a new key. It was perfect.

Chris at Irmo Lock saved the day! I called three other locksmiths and Irmo lock was THE ONLY one to answer the phone on a Sunday. Not only did he answer, he was at my house and had the lock opened within less an hour from me calling him. Highly recommend these guys. Thank you for saving us!!!!

The service that I received from Clint Meyer at Irmo Lock Company was better than excellent; it was exceptional. In less than two hours after I placed my phone call, Clint had completely fixed the problem. He was incredibly responsive and totally professional. I wish everyone was this good.

The keys were lost to one of our work vehicles and a spare could not be located. Irmo Lock Company not only came out promptly to program a new from factory key, they also were incredibly affordable. Beating the dealership's quote by hundreds of dollars. Consequently they will gain all of our business going forward.

The gentleman was very quick and professional with getting into my home made sure he didn’t cause any damages to my door. The pricing is very reasonable as well.

I had a great experience with this company! After looking for my car key for hours I gave up and called the dealer whom quoted me a ridiculous price for 1 key....I would have also had to somehow go to them as well.I then called Irmo Lock Co. and not only was their price significantly less than the dealership they came to ME! Chris showed up within just an hour of my call. Considering they are located on the otherside of town & that I called last minute, I was very pleased they got to me so fast! Within 30 min of his arrival he had my new key and I was all set. Chris was very friendly and informative as well! Super appreciative of these guys help today!

I really appreciate the wonderful service I received from Irmo Lock Company! I’m from out of state and just closed on a home in Columbia. I needed the locks rekeyed and I had a flight out the next day. I called Irmo Lock Company after hours and they scheduled to have a technician come out the next morning before I left. And sure enough, Clint was showed up on time (actually available earlier than scheduled which was great for us). He was so pleasant and completed the job so quickly! Thanks so much for accommodating our tight schedule. I will definitely review the other services they provide.
