Whether we are selling Howard Miller Grandfather Clocks, Museum Clocks™ Grandfather Clocks, the Ridgeway Grandfather Clock Collection, Hermle Floor Clocks, or Kieninger Grandfather Clocks we always work with our customers to provide the very best in service and value, along with our Low Price Guarantee. Frequently the clincher for many of our repeat customers especially is that we provide in-home set-up of these grandfather clocks. So while a smart shopper always takes pleasure in shopping for grandfather clocks on sale or the most aggressive grandfather clock discount, one needs to look also at the total value received. Many of our clients have had bad prior delivery experiences where grandfather clocks or curio cabinets are left on the curbside, and then the truck is gone and the buyer is left with a large and quite heavy item still in its original container. At least hope this happens on a day when there is no rain or snow, or even worse, also large puddles which could seep through to the prized grandfather clock or other heirloom furniture.
There is another criterion to look carefully at, especially nowadays, when consider discount grandfather clocks. Try typing that or other similar phrases such as grandfather clock discounts or discount grandfather clock and you will likely be besieged by photos of grandfather clocks which look great in the photo, but if you are looking for an heirloom grandfather clock, you would want to stay as far away from these clocks as possible. Not only may they require assembly and be particle board vs solid wood, but the movement is not one that will last very long, or sound any good in comparison to the grandfather clocks with German mechanical movements by Hermle and Kieninger, which are the only types of mechanical grandfather clocks we sell. While you may think you are saving $1,000 or more today, you are really buying something you are likely to want to or have to throw out in the trash in months if not a year or two at the most. And you may be sorely disappointed by the added initial time investment which will likely be necessary. Sadly, with many of these clocks, it is almost like throwing your money down the drain and worse.
So how does one know what type of grandfather clock to buy? Well, we carry only the makers and brands we feel are of the highest quality and workmanship, and also offer a tremendous value to our customer. We are willing to patiently take our prospective customers through all of the differences between types of grandfather clocks, such as chain driven vs cable driven grandfather clocks, as well as the different features, and differences and similarities between makers, not to mention some times very relevant grandfather clock history.
We would like to take the opportunity at this time to highlight one of the newer Howard Miller Grandfather Clocks, which is part of the Howard Miller 85th Anniversary Collection, and is known as the Howard Miller Leighton Grandfather Clock 611086:
