I texted Austin Clock Repair on Sunday about repair on a grandfather clock. Logan was at my house on Wednesday. He was very courteous and knowledgeable and took care of my clock. Would definitely use him again and recommend highly.

I called Fred about getting a grandfather clock moved and he was very helpful in explaining what it would take to do so. He said he could move it and service it at the same time, but that if I wanted to save money I could do it myself if I wasn't also wanting it serviced. He gave me tips on how to properly move it myself. When it comes time to service the clock, I am definitely going to call Austin Clock Repair!
