How Do I Receive A Free Estimate On My Clock Repair?
We have made it easy to send in your clock for a free estimate. Click this Get Started link and follow the on-screen instructions which will guide you the rest of the way. If you have any trouble with this process, do not hesitate to Contact Us.
How Long Does It Take To Receive An Estimate?
The day we receive your clock, we notify you that it has arrived safely. Next, it is processed, photographed, and categorized for the proper diagnosis. Estimates can take as few as two days from the time it arrives. However, there are times we may need to reach out to the manufacturer to find availability and pricing of necessary parts. This can add some time to the estimation process. The moment we have all the answers, we reach out to you again with details about your clock repair for approval. No work is done without your approval.
How Long Does It Take To Repair My Clock?
This varies based on the type of clock, as well as the type of repair. A simple tune up can be turned around quickly, while a vintage restoration of a century old clock can take several months. We do our best to give an indication of the length of time required to repair your clock when we call you with details about your estimate. Parts on order can add another layer of uncertainty to the timeline.

Shipping And Security
Why Do I have To Send My Clock In For An Estimate?
We prefer our clockmakers review every repair so that we can be confident in providing you with an accurate estimate. We may give general overviews, when asked, without seeing the clock, however a complete estimate may only be done after reviewing your clock.

Pack your clock with the clock repair form, in a box with good packaging, and drop it in the mail. We accept USPS, UPS, and FedEx. Do NOT send your clock with the original box.
