Rebuilding:

A rebuild is necessary when a clock has run it's course, is worn out, and can no longer continue to run properly under it's own power source. A normal clock life span is 25-35 years, at that point it will need rebuilding. In order to achieve the 25-35 years a clock will run between rebuilding, it will need fresh oil regular intervals of 5-7 years.

What is rebuilding? A rebuild consists of:
• Complete Disassembly

Shipping:

If you can pack it we can fix it. Do not ship keys or glass panels. Also package any lose items like weight and pendulums separately. We do not recommend shipping a 6 foot Grand Father clock but many other clocks can be shipped, repaired and returned to you easier than you may think. Use a packing service to ship if you are unsure the best way to protect you valued timepiece. We accept all carries at our location. Call with any inquiries.
