Our In-Home Service Call

Clocks can be big, cumbersome, and challenging to transport.  That’s why we offer an in-home service call.  We arrive at your home and inspect the clock.  If your clock only needs an adjustment and/or light oiling in order to get it back up and running, then we do that on-site.  If, however, the clock needs more work, then provide you a free estimate of the necessary repairs.  If accepted, then we carefully pack up and take the movement, pendulum and weights back to our repair facility.  From there, we disassemble the movement, clean it, polish all pivots and bushings and then reassemble it.  We oil all of the wear points.  And we set the movement on a timing stand to test it out for several weeks and ensure it keeps accurate time.  Lastly, we re-pack the movement, pendulum and weights and head back to your home at an agreed-upon date/time to reinstall the movement back into your clock.
