Our Proven Process for Moving Grandfather Clocks

We start by helping you make the arrangements to have the pendulum, weights, and internal workings dealt with properly.

After those items are removed by the clock master, they are bubble wrapped and secured to the of the clock.

Then the clock and its components are placed in a crate with custom bracing and special foam packing to ensure they travel safely.

Grandfather clocks being shipped internationally are placed in a vapor barrier bag with a desiccant to prevent moisture from damaging them during shipping.
