Expert Tall Clock Restoration

Often, grandfather clocks are a family heirloom, representing fond family memories, and we understand how much they mean to our customers. We repair grandfather by all makers. If your grandfather clock has “Tempus Fugit” embossed on the dials, as many do, this is Latin for “time flies” and is not an indication of the brand, make, model or value.

We are master clock builders and have been rebuilding and restoring tall clocks for nearly 25 years. We can pick up your clock and deliver it when it is finished anywhere in Eastern Pennsylvania. While we specialize in 18th and 19th Century tall clock restorations, we also repair any mechanical grandfather clock regardless of make or vintage.   We don’t just fix your clock, but we are careful to restore or conserve your heirloom with the highest quality professional craftsmanship.  We offer a one-year warranty with our work.

When you trust your treasured timepiece with Hicks Clocks, you will join an elite group of happy clock owners that will only have us perform their repair work.
