Upholstery- we offer a range of plain or deep buttoned upholstery in traditional wool cloth or Bedford cord, or wool mix fabric. Our leather is absolutely beautiful using the finest leathers and in any colour that you may like. For those preferring an imitation leather finish (easy to wipe and clean) this is also available and a popular choice for many people.

Hoods- we can replace or rebuild hoods lining them normally with the traditional wool cloth. Hoods can be made with real leather or imitation leather.

Woodwork- we can repair damaged vehicles or completely rebuild wooden bodies to traditional designs and standards.

Shafts- These can be supplied, wooden swan neck or metal adjustable. Our wooden shafts have all the traditional fittings and our metal ones can also have these if required. Leather work replaced on the ends of wooden shafts. All shaft fittings supplied.

Lamp brackets- we can supply or replace your existing, or repair as necessary

Paint Work-Our paint work is to the highest standard and we are very happy to arrange for you to view some of our current restorations, all be it from a Shetland gig to a full park drag.

QUOTATIONS – WE TRY TO MAKE THIS AS EASY AS POSSIBLE FOR OUR CUSTOMERS– we find the simplest way is if you e-mail us some clear photographs of the carriage you are requiring work on showing particular points that need attention. We will then get back to you for a discussion about the work required and then offer you a full quotation. We are well use to working with insurance companies and can help with any insurance work required.
