“After several tries with different clock repairers, who all proved unreliable, we came across Elbie. He was knowledgable, reliable, came out on time, communicated well and has repaired our clock successfully. We are so pleased to have our ancient grandfather clock, which we inherited, chiming beautifully in our hallway. Thank you Elbie."
“I inherited a Grandfather clock that had been in my family for generations and was in a very sorry state. It hadn’t worked for over 10 years, suffered from years of dodgy central heating and poor attempts at repairs by various family members over the last hundred years. The guys at Evantime came around to assess the clock and were very upfront that the repair cost was more than the current value of the clock, but as it’s a family heirloom, I went ahead and am so happy with the result! It now looks amazing, all shiny and clean; the cracks filled, wood repaired and polished, plus there’s brass bits I didn’t realise were brass because they were completely black before. The clock is now in very good working order and also tells the date. I’m so happy and also grateful for the promise of aftercare as I’m new to owning a working old clock, and it should stay working for generations to come. Thank you.”
“Thank you so much Elbie for servicing my lovely old mantel clock which I've owned for 30 years. Never serviced before, it now sounds as it should have for all those years! Also my husband's grandfather's Kaiser Universe 400 day clock which has spent years in the loft and never worked. Now restored to full working order! Elbie is a lovely man, clearly very passionate and knowledgeable and we can't recommend him highly enough. Thank you again Elbie.”
“Elbie did a great job repairing our wall clock which is about 100 years old and made me a fabulous new wind up key which catered for the disabilities in my hands.
Great job nice guy”
“Cheers Elbie for bringing my great-grandmother's mantel clock back to life. After a couple of mishaps, including an exploding spring, you carefully and meticulously put my clock back together and hunted out the tiny intolerances that were causing problems. The passion and pride in your work shone through as you carefully explained, in simple terms, the issues with my clock and how you had rectified them. It was a pleasure to chat clockwork and engineering with you.
If I ever have problems with my clock again I would not hesitate to leave it, once again, in your capable hands. Cheers again, it's wonderful to have my clock back quietly ticking away on my bookcase”
“Just to say 'Thank You' for the work done on the chiming clock which sounds good and keeps perfect time. What more could one ask for, reminds me of my time as a kid during the war years listening to the chimes at night which I am aware provided pleasure for my Father. ”
Thanks and Best Wishes....lucky to find you.
“I Rang EvanTime as a picture had fallen and knocked my mantle clock off the console table, it's not valuable but holds a lot of sentimentality to me, within 20 minutes Elbie was here and it was fixed at a very reasonable price. I can't recommend EvanTime highly enough of Elbie. Thank you, clock repairs are a dying breed. Thank you Elbie, I am truly grateful, and will recommend you, it turned out to be a simple job of you know what's wrong and got the little for which he didn't charge, polite, explains everything and very efficient. Excellent service.”
“I recently took a pendulum clock for an estimate to Evantime.When I told Elbie I was going to donate the Clock to the Douglas McMillan once it was fixed he did the repair for a minimal fee and himself donated a Mantle Clock as well.
Many thanks Elbie for your prompt and very generous service,people like you are becoming a rarity these days..”
“Thank you for restoring my very neglected clock to its former glory, excellent workmanship.”
