Full Answer

Frankenmuth Clock Company has been in operation since 1979 and is the largest full-service clock merchandiser and repair store in the Midwest. Frankenmuth offers clock replacement parts for sale as well as full-service clock repair; however, customers are placed on a wait list for full-service repairs due to the high demand of services, as of August 2015.

The Cuckoo Clockologist company specializes in only cuckoo clocks. The company offers deconstruction and cleaning of the clock, oiling, replacement of screws or decorative pieces, and ultrasonic cleaning for clock movements. The Clockologist also dips the movement in a brass-rinse solution after cleaning. The repair shop conducts diagnostic work on cuckoo clocks first and contacts the customer should replacement parts be required.

The Clockologist repair shop runs the cuckoo clocks for five days before reassembling them and tests the clocks for an additional two days once assembled before returning them to the customer. For customers who are out of the area, the Clockologist supplies instructions on mailing the clocks via UPS and paying for services virtually.
