Again, bring in the clock or make an appointment for us to visit your home to determine what needs to be done and we will provide you with an estimate before starting the work.
Moving we can assist in preparing your clocks for the move. If you just moved to the area we can assist in the set-up of your clocks at their new home.
We will attempt to estimate all the necessary repairs your clock needs. However, it is difficult to evaluate all damage in a fully assembled clock.
Clocks are very precisely made instruments, and their movements are under great forces of stress. It is not uncommon to find damaged parts after disassembly. Be assured that no additional, unauthorized work will be performed on your clock without your express approval.
We will endeavor to provide you with all appropriate options for maximizing your timepiece's performance within your budget.
