Grandfather Clocks

Grandfather clocks are not only precise timepieces and beautiful statements in a home, but they are often family heirlooms reflecting personal history and tradition. At Federal Companies, we understand the complexities involved in moving these timeless treasures.

Our careful handling begins with the disassembly process. Pendulums and weights are carefully removed, wrapped, labeled, and packed separately. High-grade packing materials cushion and protect every component of your clock, ensuring its intricate mechanisms are safeguarded throughout transit. At your new home, our team removes packing materials, rehangs the pendulums and weights, and ensures it’s level.
