A large sofa that has been finished and returned to our client who sent a fantastic review

Many thanks

" I was incredibly impressed with the service from the Old Fire Station from start to finish. I'd looked around extensively for an upholsterer and these were by far the most reasonable quote I received. On top of the good price, Linda and her team were really helpful and lovely! The job they did on our sofa is brilliant, we're thrilled with it. Would highly recommend and will be using these guys again."

Mrs J Bourne.

Lin and Andy We had not forgotten, but lots going on at this end . Do not have a google account or want one . Please see our thought’s on your excellent work below Take care Sue & Tim Byrne Had 6 dining chairs , Antique Yew , upholstery that had died and we had spent a lot of time to find replacements . Eventually, after finding nothing that came close to the quality (irrelevant of price) which we once had , decided to investigate rebuilding the said chairs . Having goggled 🤭🙄, we were recommended to visit “The Old Fire Station “ upholsterer’s in Redhill . WOW , from stepping into their workshop , we were transported to a time that “PEOPLE ACTUALLY LISTENED TO US AND WHAT WE WANTED “ From that moment our journey started , Lin and Andy pulled out all the stops , nothing was ‘TOO MUCH TROUBLE “ No idea silly . Advice came freely from the whole team and we just thought “ is this really happening “ . It’s normally ,” this is what we do , price and this is what WE will do “ , nothing was further from the truth .At every stage Lin ensured we knew exactly what was happening and that we were happy . Fabric ,etc well where do you stop , if they have not got it , they will get it, and hold your hand along the process. Received the chairs back at the agreed time and “WOW” SUE , MY WIFE SHED A TEAR , the finish was excellent , Fabric was spot on ( easy to imagine pictures and seeing samples , but seeing it on our chairs 12/10 ) and really complemented the chair’s . Andy advised us that they also had to repair the actual chairs ( all in price) and Lin explained the process and even showed and e-mailed us photos of the actual process from strip down to completion . And when I say “ our chairs have been COMPLETELY, rebuilt I mean it . Fantastic job , cannot even begin to explain how pleased we are. Excellent job Price was agreed up front and we are extremely pleased with the finished article’s “ YOU GET WHAT YOU PAY FOR “ Would not hesitate, to recommend the team , Fantastic job What you see is what you get , they put 100% into what they do . I am aware that I have laboured their skills , but you should see our chair’s Keep up the GREAT work Regards Tim & Sue
