We want you to receive your grandfather clock as quickly as possible and we do our very best to keep an adequate on-going supply of inventory. However, many factors affect inventory levels which may unexpectedly cause a backorder situation. Here is how Grandfather Clock Co. handles backorders:
- If a grandfather clock you’ve ordered is on backorder, we’ll send you an email to let you know the estimated arrival date. You can choose to wait for the item or cancel it.
- Backorders remain active for 60 days. If the grandfather clock you ordered is on backorder for greater than 60 days, your order will be cancelled. Please check back with us at a later date to reorder the item.
- Grandfather Clock Co. does NOT charge your credit card unless your grandfather clock ships. If you used PayPal, your PayPal account was charged at the time you placed the order.
- Once your grandfather clock comes back into stock, it will ship automatically.
- If you have any questions regarding our backorder policy, or an existing order, please call our toll free number or email us at email@example.com.
FAQ (FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS):
How long will it take for my clock to be shipped and delivered?
Once an order is placed, we'll ship your clock within 2-3 business days. Your clock will arrive in your local area within 5-7 days after shipping. The trucking company will call you to schedule inside delivery - they will not just show up at your door. When they arrive to deliver the clock, instruct them where you want it placed and they will put the clock in that location. They will also remove the outer carton so you can inspect for any damages.
What about setting up my grandfather clock?
All mechanical clocks include FREE in-home setup. If your clock is made by Hermle, give us a call when the clock arrives and we will contract an authorized installer within 48 hours. If your clock is a Howard Miller or Ridgeway, they will mail you a letter that includes the name and phone number of a local authorized set up person. Once the clock arrives, you simply call the installer to schedule him for the set up. The installer will finish unpacking the clock, install the weights and pendulum, balance the clock, wind the movement, make sure everything is functioning properly and give you a quick overview of what you should do on a regular basis to maintain the clock. This service is included in the price of your clock and is 100% free of charge. Please note this service does not apply to Battery driven clocks since setup is very simple.
How can you offer such low prices?
At The Grandfather Clock Company, you take advantage of our direct relationship with the manufacturer. We are an Authorized Dealer for every brand we sell. We guarantee we can offer you the lowest price on grandfather clocks. If you find someone selling a grandfather clock for less, please call us at (866) 509-6075 and give us a chance to win your business.
How "up to date" are your products?
The grandfather clocks we sell are always the latest designs offered by our manufacturers. We never sell used or reconditioned clocks. Every grandfather clock we sell is brand new and direct from the manufacturer.
What if I need warranty service?
Our manufacturers hold to the strictest standards of quality control. All of our grandfather clocks are covered by a 2 or 3 year manufacturer's warranty. Once your grandfather clock or floor clock has been delivered and set up, if it develops any problems, just contact your manufacturer for service. The service numbers for our manufacturers are:
Howard Miller/Ridgeway  (616) 772-9131 x100
Hermle Clock Company    (434) 946-7751
