I'm very conscious that potential customers may feel apprehensive about buying direct from my internet website without visiting my showroom so have published a selection of customer comments below.

The ( worldwide ) customers who have very kindly provided testimonials have also agreed to allow email contact on request to validate their veracity.

"We chose a mahogany longcase clock from the website of Allan Smith Antique Clocks of Swindon, England. It was flown airfreight to Santiago airport, Chile and arrived well packed, on time and in perfect condition. We used the DVD supplied to set up the clock. This was easy to do and the clock has worked accurately and reliably. It has been much admired by our friends and the rich flame mahogany looks even better than it's pictures on the website. We are very pleased with it."
Mr. & Mrs. RSC. Santiago, Chile.

"After realising the scarcity of 18th Century longcase and bracket clocks in the U.S., I decided to travel to England in search of high quality clocks. After researching the market, I travelled to select dealers in the U.K. in 1999 to evaluate not only the selection of clocks available but also the quality of clock restoration. I found Allan Smith to be extremely knowledgeable, helpful, and passionate about his business. He had a wide range of exquisitely restored high quality 18th Century clocks in stock.8 years and 8 clocks later, my initial impression remains unchanged."
Dr. A., Memphis, Tennessee, U.S.A.

"I've been chasing up and down the country for seven years wasting time, effort, patience and petrol looking for a clock like this and now, at last, I've finally found what I'm looking for - thanks, I wish I'd discovered you earlier."
Mr. S., New Forest, England.

"I wanted a fine quality tallcase clock but was fearful that I'd be disappointed buying direct from England. I called Allan and had a chat about my requirements, eventually choosing a mahogany one from his website. It arrived beautifully packed, on time, and in perfect condition. I'm very pleased with his attention to detail, the quality of his restoration, and the reliable, accurate performance of the clock. Allan also talked me thru the setup which went easily and smoothly"
Mr. P., Alexandria, Va., U.S.A.

"We are really pleased with the clock, it looks stunning in the lounge room and even better than it did in the photos. The moonphase is very pretty and we are patiently watching it slowly turning".
K & K ., Wheelers Hill, Australia.
