Upon the arrival of your clock at our facility, we promptly notify you to confirm its safe receipt. The clock is then carefully processed, photographed, and meticulously categorized to ensure an accurate and thorough diagnosis. Typically, we are able to provide repair estimates within just a week, or so, of its arrival. Nonetheless, in certain instances where specialized parts are required, we may need to consult with the manufacturer, or vendors, to verify part availability and pricing, which could extend the estimation timeframe slightly. Rest assured, as soon as we have gathered all necessary information, we will contact you with a detailed repair proposal for your approval. Please note, we strictly adhere to a policy of initiating no repair work without your explicit consent.
The timeline for repairing your clock is influenced by several factors, including the specific type of clock in question and the nature of the repairs it requires. Simple adjustments or tune-ups can often be completed swiftly, allowing for a quick turnaround. On the other hand, the meticulous restoration of a vintage or antique clock, especially one that may be a century old, or older, could extend over several months. When we provide you with your repair estimate, we make every effort to offer a realistic timeframe for the completion of the work. It’s important to note that the need to order parts can introduce additional variability into the repair timeline. Rest assured, we aim to keep you fully informed and manage expectations with the utmost transparency throughout the process.
