Automotive: Leather Car Seat Repairs

Automotive, Leather Car Seat Repairs

A used car that has an immaculate leather interior will sell better than one that is dirty or has scuffs & tears. In times when there is a higher stock availability of cars than customers, then the buyer will always choose quality and value.

Car interiors take a lot of wear and tear with extremes of temperatures, getting soiled, damp and wet. We specialise in producing a repair which looks natural and blends in so that the finished product is an interior in immaculate condition, but also one that has been given a finish to match the age of the vehicle. So the natural characteristics of the leather are still there. Many repairs done by “smart repairers” give a freshly painted look, which stands out just like a worn seat does!

We offer a mobile repair service and can do the following:

  • Scuffs
  • Rips
  • Tears
  • Stitching
  • Cigarette burns
  • Split seams
  • Complete leather cleaning, care and protection

Leather Cleaning and Care:

With the correct care leather will last and serve you well. It is a natural product, it breathes and stretches. Leather maintains itself at room temperature; it is durable, comfortable and elegant. It is one of the few products which can actually improve with age.

Leather should be cleaned and protected at least three times a year (depending on use) using approved leather products. We can offer the following:

  • Complete suite clean with professional leather cleaning products
  • Neutral leather cream after cleaning to ‘feed and nourish’ the leather
  • Leather re-odourising

On-site Re-upholstering Service

Dinning Chair

We also offer an on-site re-upholstery service for all your tired, worn out dining room chairs! You can choose a cover in either leather or fabric and then we can re-upholster your chairs in your home. The chairs are usable upon completion.
