REPAIR AND RESTORATION SERVICES
REPAIR/RESTORATION SERVICE:

Our repair service includes close inspection of all parts prior to the
dismantling of the mechanism. This enables us to give the most accurate
estimate of repair cost.  We provide the repair and restoration of fine
antique clocks, casework, mechanisms, dial painting, gold leaf, veneer,
water damage, insurance claims, missing parts, oil and adjustment. We
accept Visa, Mastercard, Discover Card, American Express and personal
checks.  Customer
will be notified of estimate within two weeks of receipt
of clock.  
Upon approval of estimate, work will be scheduled by the order
in which it was received. Clock repair is expected to be completed within
approximately 30-90 days
.  We will notify customer if clock repair is
completed earlier.  
All repaired clocks must be picked up within one week
of notice of completion or a storage fee will be charged
.   Notification will
be by either personal contact or message left at phone number provided
by customer.  We will notify customer during the repair process and
given timeframe if any issues arise or delays are caused by glass
replacement, paint restoration, etc.  Upon completion, customer will be
notified and a time scheduled for pick up.  It is best if the person running
the clock picks up the repair to go over instructions and explain repair
process and set up process.   Sometimes simply transporting the clock
back home or setting back up at home can throw off timing or customer
overwinding (this can cause damage to clock and potentially break
mainspring).  If you encounter any problems once the clock is back
home, do not hesitate to contact us, most often we can walk you through
the proper steps during a phone call.   
 Please do not attempt your own
repair/fix should any issue arise after repair work is performed unless
advised by Hills Antique Clocks, as it will void your warranty, for services
performed
.

Hills Antique Clocks is proud to be customer oriented and we will happily
follow-up with you should any issues arise with your clock.  A simple
phone call is all that is needed to let us know you require assistance or
follow-up.   

RESTORATION PROCESS:

Once the mechanism is completely disassembled, all parts are cleaned and
polished.  
All pivots are burnished and bearings are replaced as needed
within our shop, we do not ship out such repairs
. We have the
experience and skills required to complete this delicate work in-house.  
Brass parts are spray lacquered to keep the nice polished finish.  Glass
paint restoration is hand done with precise antique detail.  Once the
mechanism is assembled it is bench tested for an extended time if
required  (1-2 weeks) before re-installation into the case and notification
of completion.

All rebuilds are guaranteed for one full year.  Oil and partial adjustments
are not guaranteed.  Main springs are not guaranteed as we have no
control over the way they are wound by the owner.  Springs can break if
over wound and possible damage to the clock can result.  

For more information on our Antique Clock Repair Services and charges,
please contact us with the type of clock and the type of repairs that you
are interested in.  Please note we do not repair cuckoo clocks or clocks
operated by battery or electric.
