How We Work
Wear, tear and damage to a clock very often occurs internally, among the delicate parts that are not ordinarily on show. Storage in a damp atmosphere or simply the passage of time may result in corrosion. Everyday usage can cause cause parts to erode, become brittle or snap. The exterior is not immune from damage either: storage in direct sunlight can fade wooden casings and even the clock face itself. And then, there can be accidental damage caused by dropping the clock or knocking it while in transit.
The level of damage and the amount of work required to restore the clock to its former state needs to be carefully assessed. We are skilled in doing this and can then present you with options for the work involved. Once we have agreed the desired outcomes with our client, we then dismantle the clock workings in their entirety and inspect them fully for wear and tear. We will remove any rust or corrosion, clean the area and each part, replace any broken springs or other parts and lubricate moving parts before reassembling the whole.
Your clock will be tested to ensure it is in full working order before it is returned to you. To enquire further about our clock repairs service, call us today on 01903 740 772.
