Grandfather clocks and other timepieces should always be moved by professional clock movers to ensure safe and secure transport from pickup to delivery. TSI offers two levels of service for shipping a grandfather clock:
Before your moving team arrives, the weights and pendulum must be removed from your clock and boxed separately. That can be done by a clocksmith, or often by the crating professional. Please ask us when you get your quote if you need help with that. Both services include in-home pickup and delivery. After delivery, we recommend having your clock set up by a professional clocksmith.
Byron L. wanted to ship his treasured grandfather clock to his grandson across the country. The clock was ornate and fragile, so he was certain it needed extra care. He wasn't in a rush to ship it but he was very nervous that his clock would sustain damage during transport.
Byron called TSI and our logistics specialist Carol walked him through the process. Byron removed the pendulum and weights as recommended and the clock was crated onsite and moved by professionals. Carol and the operations team updated Byron on the status of his shipment regularly. The clock was safely delivered inside his grandson's apartment, where it's been telling time ever since.
