Can I drop my clock of at L&S Clock Repair for service?

Yes, please call us at (618) 234-4401 or (217) 367-8242 to make sure we will be in the office when you arrive.

How long will it take for my clock to be serviced?

Turn around time is very important for L&S Clock repair, but it is difficult to say exactly, as some parts are difficult to obtain.

House calls

My clock is too large to transport in my car. Can you fix it in my home?

I do not clean or make major repairs on site. I will make minor adjustments in your home but thorough and professional results can only be obtained in our facility. When I receive your call, I will arrange a time to pick up the clock movement, weights and pendulum. I then clean and inspect the movement for worn or broken parts and inform you of the cost to make necessary repairs. After the repairs and regulation are completed, I will call to schedule a convenient time to reinstall and regulate the clock back in your home.

How far do you travel to service a large clock?

I make house calls for clocks within a 50-mile radius of Champaign/Urbana, a 50-mile radius of Belleville, a 10-mile radius of Indianapolis, and 10 miles north and south of Interstate 70 from St. Louis to Indianapolis.

I have a smaller clock but I don't drive. Can you pick it up?

I will make house calls for any size clock within a 50-mile radius of Champaign/Urbana. If you live outside that area, you can send your timepiece to me. I will clean it and inform you of the cost to repair. Your timepiece will be returned to you when we receive your payment.

Call (618) 234-4401 or (217) 367-8242, or email sales@lsclockrepair.com today to schedule an appointment!

Antique clock restoration

I have a very old clock that is in bad condition. Can you repair the cases too? 

We can clean and make minor repair to broken or damaged cases but for major repair or restoration we recommend taking the case to a furniture repair specialist while we clean and repair the clock movement.

Bring your clock in today and let us help restore your heirloom.

Clock repair

My mantle clock runs slow.
My school house clock won’t stay running.
My chime clock keeps time but won’t chime anymore.
Do you repair cuckoo clocks?
Do you repair grandfather clocks?
Do you repair clocks that have the spinning balls?
Can you replace broken mainsprings?

We can help! When we receive your clock, we will carefully disassemble the movement and clean it thoroughly, checking it for worn or broken parts. We will contact you after cleaning and inform you of the cost to make the necessary repairs. Worn bushings are the most common problem. Bushings or bearings are the tiny holes in the plates that hold the gears in place. When a clock is dirty, the dirt and oil form an abrasive paste that, over time ,wear these tiny holes larger. When this happens, the gears cannot mesh properly and the clock or chime or strike mechanism slows or stops. When multiple bushings are affected, the movement may need to be replaced. This process can be prevented by regular cleaning and maintenance When the movement is repaired, it is regulated for at least one week, to make sure your clock will continue to perform reliably for you for years to come.

Your clock can run like new again! Let us show you how we can help! Call today at (618) 234-4401 or (217) 367-8242, or email sales@lsclockrepair.com or stop in. We're located at 1403 E. Washington St., Urbana, IL. We're open Monday-Friday 9:30-3:30pm.

Your clock or watch was designed to last a lifetime. We can help make that happen by performing routine cleaning and lubrication.

Just as a car needs regular service and maintenance, your clock needs to be cleaned and lubricated every 3-5 years.
