"Five Star Service"
Elbie fixed my grandmother's carried clock, he was so nice to deal with, I had five star service and now a working clock. Thank you so much.
"Elbie is certainly someone I trusted immediately"
There are very few ‘specialists’ that I would say I trust on first meeting but Elbie is certainly someone I trusted immediately. I told him what was wrong with my clock and he fixed it there in front of me and charged me a fair and very reasonable fee. I would certainly recommend Elbie to anyone with a problem with their clock. No hesitation.
"More than happy and so is my Dad"
More than happy and so is my Dad, as it was his retirement clock that has been fixed!! All in working order and he’s loving the chimes again. Thank you so much Albie.
"Would recommend Elbie"
Would recommend Elbie, excellent service, great communication, our old school clock as never worked so well. Clock works perfectly now, Elbie as a wealth of knowledge, experience and skilled, you won’t be disappointed.
"We have found Elbie a pleasure to deal with"
Elbie was recommended by the previous owner of our house, who owned a long case clock. We moved almost 2 years ago but have finally got around to setting up our old clocks after a lot of building work. Elbie came over a few weeks ago and took two of our clocks away for repair. One was a long case and one a wall clock. Both were very old and the long case needed a lot of work. Elbie was excellent at keeping us informed and consulting us about how far we wanted to go with repairs on the long case, which needed a lot of expensive parts. We agreed a sensible compromise which meant that the clock would run, without the strike. Elbie came over today with both clocks and ensured they were running properly before he left. He is also going to take another long case clock for repair in a couple of weeks' time, when he has room in his workshop! We have found Elbie a pleasure to deal with. He clearly loves clocks and is extremely knowledgeable. He is also completely open and transparent about costs; he gave us really good advice on just how much it is worth spending on old clocks. We feel fortunate to have come across Elbie at Evantime.
"I was fortunate to meet Elbie"
After years trying to get my Synchronome master clock running I was fortunate to meet Elbie. He made missing parts, including a particularly intricate and delicate catch, set up and tuned the clock and it now runs beautifully. I can not speak too highly of Elbie's skill and understanding of clocks and his humour and patience with an enthusiastic amateur and his willingness to explain how to look after the system.
"I Would Highly Recommend His Service"
Elbie has done a great job repairing my parents pendulum clock. He has kept in touch regularly about the repairs and his craftsmanship is excellent. I would highly recommend his service. Thank you Elbie, we are all very pleased to have our special clock working again.
Elbie is very friendly and knowledgeable and made an excellent job of our longcase clock. He serviced it and replaced some damaged parts and I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend him.
“We Are So Pleased”
“After several tries with different clock repairers, who all proved unreliable, we came across Elbie. He was knowledgeable, 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.
“What a Craftsman!”
What a craftsman. Would not go anywhere else.Might be old fashioned but this mans word is his bond. true gent and his work WOW.
“We Can’t Recommend Him Highly Enough”
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.
"So Happy With the Result!”
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.
“Lucky To Find You”
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.
“A Man With Knowledge & Passion”
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.
"Prompt & Very Generous 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..
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.
Thank you for restoring my very neglected clock to its former glory, excellent workmanship.
“Great Job, Nice Guy”
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.
