Braintree Clock Repairs at Braintree Antiques Centre

I work from my workshop at Braintree Antiques Centre next to Argos in Braintree WEDNESDAY TO SATURDAY 10am – 4.30 pm. It could save you a trip if you phone me first as I can usually give accurate estimates from a telephone call. If you want to come and see me with your clock  the address follows. Please do not send clocks to the workshop address as it is not guaranteed there will be somebody here to accept delivery should the clock arrive on a Monday or Tuesday as I am usually on call outs for those two days each week. If you look further down this page the postal address is listed (26 Masefield Rd).

If you would like an estimate on a repair or to simply ask me to come and have a look, please call me on 07462 269529 between 9am and 9pm 7 days a week. If you dont know whats wrong with your clock I can usually work out broadly what the problem is on the phone and give an idea of whats required.

Email me with pictures for a faster more accurate estimate.

If you cant provide pictures please just email me a description of what the problem in whatever terms you are comfortable with e.g. “I have a clock my father used to own and its not worked for a few years. Its about 14 inches wide by 9 high.”

The more detail you can provide the better, buts its not essentail for the purposes of a first line diagnosis and broader estimate. Most problems fit in to certain repair categories where the range of costs are known so its just a matter of working out approximately what is required in order to give some idea of the possible price range.

That said, good pictures really do speak a 1000 words…

If you are familiar with taking and emailing photos then please take as many as is convenient along the lines of:

  • Pictures of the entire clock from the front sides and rear.
  • Close ups of damage you would like attention paid to.
  • Any you can take of the inside of the clock showing the back of the movement in a close up that shows any engraved text or serial numbers (if possible!).

If theres a lot to photograph or you would simply prefer that I visit to have a good look then please text or call my mobile 07462 269529. I am more than happy to take calls up until 9pm weekdays and over the weekend.

I cover about a 10 to 15 mile radius around Braintree which runs to the borders of Bishops stortford, Chelmsford, and Cochester.  07462 269 529
