Since 1844 Gillett’s has manufactured over 40,000 clocks many of which we still service to this day.
Clock Maintenance is carried out by our team of friendly, skilled service engineers who are fully insured and CRB checked.
We look upon servicing as a very important part of our work, as unlike other movements, clocks operate continually, every minute of every day, 365 days a year and it is inevitable that unless the installation is regularly serviced and correctly lubricated problems are likely to arise. Through our team of specialist engineers, we can provide the preventative maintenance necessary to ensure the movement is properly checked and oiled and any routine adjustments carried out to keep the installation fully operational.
Our service contracts range from Public Clocks, Church Clocks, Tower Clocks, Turret Clocks, Pillar Clocks, Projecting Clocks, Interior Clocks, floral Clocks & even Bells. We can also service clocks that are hard to reach as we have our own scaffolding and power platform and our engineers are fully qualified and trained to use and erect these methods of access.
Our service visit can be tailored to meet your clocks or your budget’s needs. An average service visit would include cleaning and lubricating all relevant accessible parts of the clock including all electrical equipment & clock wiring, the going train, strike train, quarter chime, lead off to dial motion works, dial motion works, clock bell hammers and hammer connections. Any minor issues that need addressing can also be covered during this service visit and our skilled engineers will provide a report for on any areas needing further attention. We can also provide 3-5 year contracts to keep the price set for this period. Our valued service contract clients benefit from having telephone support with our engineer’s and the office.
The benefits of having a regular service contract are,
1. Saving of costly breakdowns through lack of maintenance.
2. Preferential Hourly rates should a call out be necessary.
3. Prioritising of service customers.
