How much will it cost to repair my clock?

 

               The simple answer is: it depends.  Lots of antique dealers, collectors, and handymen represent themselves as clockmakers, but they really aren't.  While the basic principles of clock repair are straightforward, it is the correct application of those principles that is crucial.  So ask these questions of anyone who offers to repair your clock:

How did you learn clock repair?  By reading a book?  Trial and error?  An apprenticeship?

Do you guarantee your work in writing?

Are you a member of any professional organizations?  Do they have Codes of Ethics, and do you subscribe to them?

Do you provide free estimates?

The best way to find out how much a repair costs is to ask.  I don't charge for estimates, and often I can give a rough estimate over the phone or via email.  So give me a call or drop me a note, and we'll take it from there!

 

Sorry, though ...  I no longer repair cuckoo clocks or 400-day "anniversary" clocks.
