Unless otherwise stated, all of our clocks ship from warehouses in the United States. Clocks that ship from merchants, outside of the USA, may end up costing you significantly more, due to having to pay undisclosed shipping and import tariff tax charges. Additionally, the manufacturer may require, that the customer return the clock to the point of purchase for warranty coverage (which could be expensive for purchases, outside of the USA or Canada).

Grandfather clocks are shipped as freight. The trucking company will contact you, the day before, they attempt delivery. Most of the time, we are able to provide online tracking information. Grandfather Clocks usually take at least four days to arrive, sometimes longer. We are including UPS shipping maps at the bottom of the clock description page (allow an extra day or two to process the order). 9. How easy is it to set up and unpack a new grandfather clock?
