I think the most important decision you have to make is deciding which person or company is worthy of looking after your treasured antique clock. Before entrusting your valuable antique clock repair with anybody then i would strongly recommend you go and meet the person, visit their premises and workshop, ask for pictures or portfolio of work, references or reviews etc. There are some repairers that look good on paper however, their quality of workmanship does not match this. There are also a lot of antique clock repairers who are exceptionally good so finding one you feel comfortable with should not be such a big problem

Potential clients are more than welcome to come and meet us in person for a chat and cuppa, have a look around the workshop and see some of the work we have completed in person. I can also provide many references for recent work and reviews from past clients as well as a full portfolio of work and past projects for you to see. The most important thing about choosing somebody to undertake your repairs and restoration is that you are 100% confident that you can trust them with your valued clock
