Chicago clock company repairs cuckoo clock
Southard has a collection of about 10 clocks and says her interest in timepieces began when she was a child. "My parents had friends who were clock collectors and had over 200 clocks," she says. "I'd be absolutely amazed when we'd go over to their house. They had cuckoo clocks, clocks with little dancing figurines - everything you could imagine."

Description of work "My cuckoo clock wasn't working - neither the cuckoo nor the quail would come out. Dan [Tejero, the owner] and his wife identified the problem immediately. They also spent time educating me on how clocks work, the do's and don'ts of caring for them and how I could maintain it myself in the future."
Member comments "Dan was absolutely fantastic! He's the nicest person and very eager to please. He waited for an hour to make sure the clock was keeping proper time. He also had me listen to it a certain way, so I'd know if it was keeping in time and rhythm - all that for only $25. I was so pleased, and now that I see it's running so well, I'm planning on sending him a big tip so he and his lovely wife can go out to dinner! They're the best - you can't go wrong using them."
