Your clock should be maintained every three years. We offer clock repair at reasonable prices with a one year warranty.    

Routine servicing is the maintenance that should be completed on a clock every three years. The movement is removed from the case. It is fully analyzed for wear and tear from the pivots, bushings, or any other parts. When the work is done then the clock is fully oiled, adjusted, and then it goes into testing. Testing is where the running of the movement is checked daily. When testing is complete, the movement is returned to the case where additional testing is done. Some movements test well quickly while other require more patience. When testing is fully complete, then the clock is ready for pick-up or delivery.

An overhaul is a very specific and detailed process for your clock. The movement is completely disassembled and thoroughly cleaned using only clock cleaning solution and is then reassembled. The chime section is sychronized to the strike section and they are then synchronized to the time section and then finally lubricated and adjusted. The clock then goes into the testing phase (see Routine Maintenance for description of testing). Overhauls come with a one year warranty. Please be advised that overhauls are not routine and regular maintenance on your clock.  Excessive dirt or dust,use of central air, and even exposure to open windows can add to the frequency of an overhaul.

A restoration is a rebuilding of the existing movement. It's required when a clock, after running a long period of time without service. These parts are usually bushings (bearings). The worn bushings will be drilled out and a new one made to replace it. Once the repairs are made then the clock receives testing time.It's warranted for a year. Although it is the original movement it will work like new.

Your clock is running 24/7.Regular maintenance will continue to keep it running. So come see us for a free estimate
