Prepaid Evaluations

Every day we have a bunch of contacts from people asking for advice about one clock or another. The amount of time required to answer every inquiry would likely preclude us from making any money because they could tie us up fulltime!

Some folks are willing to pay a small, reasonable fee for this information. So, for nominal fee (for most items) we'll provide a quick report on most clocks, but only if we have communicated with you in advance, know what you have, and agree to do the evaluation. Many items people ask us about aren't worth fifty bucks, let alone the investment in an evaluation. We would not take advantage of someone by taking on evaluation of a low-end item... unless you beg!

So, if you wish us to evaluate your clock, please contact us and let's discuss it either by phone or e-mail. Then, if it's an item about which we can provide useful information, we'll have you send us a payment via PayPal in the amount of $50 followed by a detailed set of photos, dimensions, statement of physical and mechanical condition, last service date, any history you have, etc.

We'll prepare a one-page (sometimes a bit more) report that will give you some insight into your item along with our estimated current street price (retail) and, if it's a higher-ticket item, an estimated replacement value for insurance purposes. Most clocks about which people contact us are best covered by their homeowner's insurance and don't require an insurance rider.

If you have a high-ticket item, or one which requires significant research on our part the fee will likely be substantially more than the fee mentioned above.

In most cases we can provide you with information on the following fairly quickly – within a few days:
