Seat Burn Repair in North London

November 11, 2013

This seat burn is on the front drivers seat of an old Nissan in North London. The customer had already received a quote from another company that wanted to replace the entire seat fabric at a cost of £250. The customer did not want to spend as much as that for it is only a lease car and he was giving it back in a few days time. He sent us a few photos of the damage and we quoted him £50 for the repair.

Seat Burn Repair in North London

May 3, 2013

This customer had seen us repairing another car in his road in Muswell Hill North London so asked for a quote on His. The damage was a seat burn that was located on the front drivers seat on a 2009 Audi. We quoted him £55 for job, he looked a bit shocked at the price, not that it was expensive but the opposite for he had quotes previously for the seat burn ranging from £150 – £250. He decided to let us have ago and repair the damage. He was a little sceptical at the low cost thinking that we would just bodge it or colour it in with felt tips, how wrong was he going to be.

Seat Burn Repair Costs

January 14, 2013

If you are unfortunate enough to have a seat burn in your car and have tried to get it fixed then you know how difficult it can be from finding someone that is good at what they do, to having the time off work to have it done, it can be a costly exercise.

The most important factor in the costing for a seat burn repair is the type of repair that you have carried out. For example there are two main techniques you can use to repair a seat burn

1. Fibre repair
This repair technique is the most popular for its the cheapest to have done with prices starting from £35 and can be carried out by a mobile service that come to your home or place of work to carry out the job., This techniques is used widely within the motor trade circles on new cars, hire car returns and trade ins, the whole process takes no longer than 1 hour and can be sat on within an hour. The process involves placing matching fibres in the burn hole, slowly building up the layers with an adhesive until it’s at the desired level. The repair itself is not 100% unnoticeable but if you are not looking at it or for it then you wouldn’t see it.

2. Reupholster repair
This is the more expensive of the two techniques with prices starting from £150 (depending upon size and location). The results though speak for themselves with the repair being virtually perfect. The process involves removing a section of the seat fabric that has the burn mark in from the stitching and replacing it with a matching piece. The downsides would obviously be the price and that you would have to take the car to them, meaning time off work and you would be without the car for a period of time.

Deciding on what technique to go for depends entirely on you the customer and what your desired outcomes are. So if you are a perfectionist and just can’t bear to see it, then go for the more costly technique. But if you just want the damage covered over or you are selling the vehicle then it would be wise to go for the fibre technique.

This customer was based in St Albans in Hertfordshire and had multiple burns on his rear seat of his BMW Mini, it seems the passenger sitting in the rear seat had dropped the cigarette and while trying to pick it up had unintentionally moved the hot end around and in the process created multiple burns on the fabric. This customer had got our details from a previous customer who lived on the same street, he emailed us a photo of the damage and a date and time was arranged to fix the problem.
