If you want enjoy your Grandfather Clock in a good working condition as long as possible, you will need to take very good care of it when it comes time to move it. Grandfather clocks cannot be moved safely unless they are dismantled.

If you are up for a challenge here how it’s done;
FIRST thing you need to do is carefully remove all the weights one by one and number them. Although they might look similar the weights don’t all weight the same. It is imperative for you to know where each weight should be placed. All the weights should be packed and numbered in bubble wrap separately.
NEVER leave any shelves and shelf parts inside of the Grandfather clock. Remove them all carefully. If your Grandfather clock came with glass shelves remove them one by one. Pack them separately with bubble wrap and cover them with cardboard. Make sure you write FRAGILE/GLASS on the cardboard.
ALWAYS remove the pendulum and keep it in the original box it came in. When you remove it watch out for the suspension spring at the top of the pendulum.
SECURE the clock case with straps and moving blankets in the truck. Make sure it does not move around. Keep all other parts away from the case.
strongly recommend that you hire a professional moving company to do the job. If you still want a challenge and take it upon yourself, read on to learn the best way to pack a Grandfather Clock so that it does not end up badly damaged when you reach your final destination.
