Vintage Phone Workshop

As well as unrivalled experience and qualifications we have a dedicated Antique telephone workshop where we perform our antique and vintage telephone repairs, servicing and restorations. Although our Vintage phone workshop is located in Yorkshire more than 95% of the work we do is received by post from all over the UK.

Our telephone workshop is fitted out with a comprehensive set of test equipment for both testing and calibrating each individual model of GPO phone. Our antique telephones don't just look good on the outside, we actually lavish more time cleaning, servicing and adjusting them on the inside to ensure your vintage telephone will work to peak performance for many years to come. We believe this comprehensive servicing and calibration also extends the life of these vintage phones so that they will be better preserved for the future.

All the old phones we restore or repair are calibrated and tested on our test equipment for a minimum of 7 days after the work has been completed. We always recommend this extended testing period before they are collected or sent back by post to allow the phones to bed in.
