REVIEWS OF Jantzen Lock & Safe Co IN South Carolina

Shanta Mobley

Called for a quote and women who answered the phone was rude and gave very poor customer service! She talked trash about the car I wanted unlock and then told me the guy would not do it. No reason why but to call someone else. I would never recommend anyone to do business here.

Justin Azimuh

Decent pricing and convenient location.but the older woman at the counter was incredibly rude, kept complaining about customers and their timing and blank customers for the parking gridlock'd and doesn't understand parallel parking.

Jordan Neely

Went in to have a few locks on my truck cap re keyed, and they did it on the spot. extremely reasonable and very professional. Highly recommend these guys.

Esther Lowndes

Have always had the BEST service from JANTZENS! They have even talked me through an installation over the phone when I was out of town and could not find service. JANTZENS always has been able to find the right key or make one to some of the oddest locks around! Will keep them as my lock masters forever.

Margaret von Werssowetz

THE place for locks of any kind. Family owned, and what a nice family!

Vaqif Vaqifli

So bad service

Ben Pearce

These people are magicians- they picked a safe that we lost the key for, then disassembled the lock and rebuilt it, cut two new keys and totally solved our crisis. All in 24 hours for an incredibly reasonable price. Highly recommend.

Ellen Frisch

Great customer service. Had emergent situation and needed home and truck locks changed. Response time was excellent! Eric was extremely helpful! Highly recommend this long time Charleston business!

Laura Burchfield

Justin Burch

Tried to have a key cut at Baker Cadillac for my car. They cut 2 different keys and neither worked, they claimed someone must have changed the locks on the car before I got it, there's no way their machine was at fault. I decided to try a locksmith just to be sure. I spoke to Eric and was quoted $85. I explained the situation and he said if I could get the dealership to give me the code it would save Jantzen looking it up, and save me $50. Very honest of them. I got the code, called it in, and my key was ready in less than an hour and WORKED. I've been to the dealership 4 times trying to get in my car and at a loss thinking i'd have to have the locks replaced but these guys saved the day and my sanity. Thank you!!

One star too many but you have to put one. They are Unethical and give locksmiths a bad name. They make duplicate copies of keys that clearly state "Do not Duplicate" knowing they are putting institutions at risk. I called and gave them a part number to see if they had a particular lock, they said they had it. Upon arrival, they tried to pass off something different and did not have the lock I had requested.

Peter Rupp

The best locksmith in town! Super friendly and very knowledgeable. They were able to make copies of my 1989 Land Rover Defender ignition key & fuel cap key. The keys were made in England and another locksmith said he couldn't do it. I have been coming here for years because of the great service and ability to always make key copies.


Great people!! Great work

Kevin Bourque

They cut two new keys for my car after I lost my only copy, delivered them to the vehicle and charged half of what I figured I'd pay. Highly recommended.

Locks done right.

Shalee Nicole

Great place, friendly owners. They can copy any key no matter how weird

Michael Carnell

Love Jantzen. They are my go-to for all key and lock related needs. Have been able to supply with odd British car keys for years.

Christopher J Mack

Outstanding prompt, professional, and friendly service! After going to four places who could not cut my auto keys, Jantzen (Eric) was able to cut them in under 3 minutes and programmed them at no charge. This is the most skilled lock smith i've ever used and will trust them for all future lock and key needs. Great family run business in Charleston!!!

M. Riordan

Requested to have a lock re-keyed. Location literally across the street. $16.00 re-key charge, $6.00 for 2 keys, $145.00 'service' fee. They did mail us a key copy for an extra $7.00, so that was nice. Was told they had to take their truck over there + 1/2 hour labor. Could have just bought a whole new lock for that price. Ridiculous. Hate they had to drive 200 yards to the location!

Saye Simpson

Great service as I needed a new key for my car. My old key was worn down after they tested the key and realized that it wasn't as smooth turning as it was supposed to be. They cut a new mechanical key so that I would have it and explained thoroughly how the locking mechanism worked. Very professional, courteous, and knowledgeable. Will definitely use again.

I had a specialty key for a mailbox and could not get it at east bay hardware. They were able to get the key made in less than 5 min

Shuchun Sun

People there are nice and responsible. I went there for rekeying the metal part of my car and then program it myselft. They constantly remind me that programming is a different story. Although that's something I already know, their reminder still make me feel warm. Also, the key they made is perferct for my car.

Dave Barnes

Old School locksmiths. Excellent service and quality. The only people I use in Charleston. Enjoy the keys in the sidewalk cement...

Taylor Wilcox

I’ve never used their services, but they get 5 stars for the fun locks and keys in the cement out front. Love it!

Robert Mitchell

Quick, Reliable, Honest best locksmith in town

John Melville

Tyler Sawyer

First time I've ever had a spare set of motorcycle keys! The staff is extraordinarily helpful and dug through a number of keys by hand to find what I needed since my particular key was not in any of their books. Thank you so much!

outdoor 7or24

Great friendly service. Explained up front they may not be able to cut a great key from my worn key. They did a great job and cut a great copy. Service (in a customer no service time) like this will make me come back when I need locksmith work done.

David Major

John Wolfe

Odd key odd lock just about all you could possibly need or want

Mary Kay Day

One star is too many! No stars here- service was Awful! Overpriced and not customer service oriented. I requested to have all locks re- keyed in my newly purchased home -one door was not , so I had to call them back. I was charged an additional $130.00 service charge! Definitely would NOT recommend! In addition when I questioned the charge they were rude and said it was my fault the door was missed!

george mclaughlin

Edit to a previous negative comment, while the lady that said she was the manager on duty was rude and hung up on me, the owner was glad to work out the problem in a calm and professional manner. Glad to see they are able to work with people through a misunderstanding with their staff
