I purchased a new front door lock set, two doorknobs with keyed locks and 2 deadbolt locks from Irmo Lock Company and had them install the locks as well. Clint Meyer performed the service and called to let me know he was on the way, showed up on time and was extremely professional and efficient. Clint not only installed the new locks so that they work better than the old ones, but he fixed some issues with the doors and hinges and now the doors and weather stripping are sealed tighter. I highly recommend Irmo Lock Company .

The company was quick to respond at a last minute notice and the man they sent named Clint was very thorough, kind, courteous and helpful when he arrived. I could not have had a better experience. These days people are not people friendly yet Clint was and I will definitely use this company and request him if I ever need future services from them. Thanks and have a great day!

I needed a key made for a filing cabinet at work, and Irmo Lock Company was the first to come to mind. I called in the morning, and they were out within a few hours to get the keys made for us. They were professional on the phone and in person. I will never use another lock company.

I had a problem with my VW Jetta's engine immobilizer. Two trips to the dealership didn't fix the problem, so I reached out to Irmo Lock Company. Guy worked for several days on the car, and truly went above and beyond. I'm talking ordering circuit maps, talking with colleagues at other lock companies, and even coming in on a Sunday to work on it. He finally was able to disable the immobilizer and I haven't had any problems with starting the car since then, which I can NOT say was the case with the VW dealer. Guy charged me a reasonable fee for his service, especially given how much work and time it took to solve the problem. I actually offered to pay him more, knowing that it was a tough job, and he wouldn't let me. Irmo Lock Company is an honest business that does good work--unfortunately, that seems to be increasingly uncommon. I would recommend Irmo Lock without hesitation to anyone who needs their services.

I missed and locked myself out of the vehicle after cranking the vehicle up this morning. I called Irmo Lock Co. and they were ready to come out and open my door. They came out less than 30 minutes and I was so grateful of the urgency they provided.

The experience with Irmo Lock Company was exceptional; from my first call to make the appointment all the way through to payment by credit card, it was easy, seamless, and completely effortless on my part. The service technician, Clint listened to me described the issues I was having with the door and lock. He quickly diagnosed the several issues creating the problems and promptly fixed everything. He left me with some future recommendations for upgrading my lock system ... I will surely use Irmo Lock Company again when the time comes ... count me as a fully satisfied customer willing to endorse and recommend the services of Clint and Irmo Lock Company.

Went there thinking I needed the lock on my driver's side door replaced...$150+ After looking at it, running some test it only needed lubricating. And they didn't charge me anything. Very professional and honest!

I called last minute and they were able to fit me in. Clint called me ahead of time, showed up on time, and quickly repaired my broken lock with new hardware. He was professional, knew what he was doing, and didn’t try to sell me more than I needed to fix the problem. Outstanding and trustworthy!

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.
