    We have just had our two front seats recovered... and are very happy with the results :thumb::thumb::thumb:

    Whilst we were away in France recently, we met now funsters Allegro83 and were so impressed with their front seats which had been re-upholstered by Tappers upholsterers,
    that last thursday afternoon I gave them a ring to enquire etc, well by 9pm that night they had been collected by Richard who is a very nice and helpful young man

    It was a 2 1/2 hour journey one way for him .. the two front seats now collected and sample books left with us to choose which fabric and colour etc we would llke , we had decided by friday afternoon what we wanted ( a price's had been agreed whilst with us before he left)

    Fabric was ordered by them monday morning and the seats returned to us by Thursday evening.... they really do try to please their customer's ...ace:thumb:

    Thank you Richard of Tappers for such a great service .... we love the new seats, as you know Richard , I worried afterwards had we chosen the correct colour of leather ... but they are gorgeous :thumb::thumb::thumb:

    Tappers are at the NEC this w/e, if anyone is attending the Caravan show and thinking of any new upholstery please give them a visit etc


    We are no way connected to this company just passing on our appreciation of a good service and workmanship :thumb:

    Glad you're pleased with the reupholstery Kath and John. We went to B'ham C&C site and they picked the front seats up one morning and delivered them back to the site at 5.30 the same day. As you say they are very helpful.

    Yes they did offer us that too, only as the NEC show was on, with them having expected orders we would be looking at a much later date than we wanted

    We had hoped as we were going to be at the fishing meet ,the seats could be collected there (It is only an hour away from their workshops from the rally )

    Only alas if that would have worked out ok but the Nec they have mixed things up abit

    Hey ho we are happy to have it done very quickly :thumb::thumb::thumb:

    We chose Tappers at the malvern show to recover our van, complete job all seats curtains, and also had some carpets and cushions to match.

    I would like to echo all that has already been said about Richard, a real genuine person.

    He collected the contents of the van, and delivered them back and refitted them a week later.

    The standard of the work is top class, but the selling point for me is Richard, who took all the time in the world to make us feel like we were his only customers.

    Yes there could be shoddy workmanship in all trades, but we were thrilled also at the quickness and service of this company at such short notice :thumb::thumb:

    It appears to me that you two got the same kind of top quality service and workmanship from this company as the Wagon and I got from you two at your place... but I bet Richard didn't take you out for breakfast or a drink at the Tanners... :thumb:

    I call it Karma...
