Hello, and thank you for visiting Movers.com!

As long as you take the proper measures to prepare your grandfather clock for relocation (such as removing the pendulum and weights, securing the chains, and carefully padding and protecting the clock), you should be able to tilt and carry the clock while moving it.  It's also a good idea to place the clock in special crate for extra protection during your move.

Preparing grandfather clocks for relocation (as well as reassembling the clock upon arrival to your new home) is a complicated and delicate process--and your valuable clock can be ruined if it is not done right. Hiring professionals with experience moving grandfather clocks is a good idea to ensure your clock arrives at your destination without damage.
