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!!!

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 .
