Why Master Clock Repair?
When you really care who repairs your clock why should you choose Master Clock Repair over other clockmakers in your area?
Because of Mike's unbeatable combination of an honest and friendly personality, extensive full time professional training, thirty-six years of experience, and his Certified Clockmaker status to name just a few.See Qualifications for more information.
In addition, Mike's customers are often impressed with his ability to explain the condition and needs of their clock and can often offer several approaches to how the clock might be repaired.While a complete professional restoration is frequently required on many antique clocks and even some modern clocks over 25 or 30 years old it is not always absolutely necessary nor is it the only option.Mike takes the time to explain what makes a cost effective repair and or maintenance program as well as the benefits and risks of certain approaches to repairing the clock's problem.While Mike is the expert and will tell you his opinion concerning what is best, you are the clock owner and he takes into account your wants and needs.
Another benefit that Mike offers is that he actually returns all calls and emails in a timely fashion. This should not be unusual but in this day and age it has become quite rare. All calls received during business hours are returned that day. If you call after hours he will attempt to return your call the next day.
Master Clock Repair is a five time award winner for superior service from a nationally recognized service referral company. Unfortunately due to abuse by those who did not actually receive the award, but used it anyway, we are no longer allowed to mention them by name.
In 2014 Mike is celebrating his thirty-sixth year in the clock trade. During this time he conservatively estimates that he has repaired over 36,000 clocks including over 20,000 house calls. Therefore you can have great confidence when leaving your clock with him. After all, two museums do. Michael has done restorative work for both the GeorgianMuseum in Lancaster and the UnionCounty Historical Society in Marysville.
Due to all of Mike's experience and expertise it would be natural to assume that having your clock repaired at Master Clock Repair would be very expensive. Not true! Mike boasts one of the lowest, if not the lowest house call price in Central Ohio. Even his restoration work is often considerably lower than other shops, both locally and nationwide.

Important Contact Information and Normal Hours
Normal in shop hours are Mondays, Tuesdays and Fridays, usually from 10-6. Wednesday and Thursday I am on the road making house calls. I am available on Saturdays by appointment only. As I am the only repairman for my business I recommend that you call the day you want to come just to be sure I have not had to step out unexpectedly.
