Customers Reviews

*Hi, Just wanted to say thank you for the straps. My studio coach is back to its best. Thanks for the help with the order and such prompt delivery.
Best regards

*Thank you so much, your instructions
were really clear – I used thin nylon rope and a length of wood as a lever to
stand on and that worked well for all but the doubles and the long straps.
From start to finish you have been a
total joy to deal with, your communications are excellent, shipping super fast
and the quality of the straps is clearly very important to you.
These will probably outlive me but I
have another Ercol that will need straps in a few years, I’ll be coming
straight back to you for them.
Have a lovely weekend.
Lisa Cole

*I would just like to say a massive thank you to the great customer service and product I have received from Skiddaw Upholstery. I phoned up before I ordered and you were very helpful in ascertaining which model of Ercol daybed I had. The webbing and instructions were perfect and me and my friend managed to replace the webbing yesterday and my daybed is back to its perky self!

Many thanks for the replacement pirelli webbing straps you sent for my Ercol 334 chair. The straps are great and the instructions for fitting were super helpful. Very pleased with the results. 
Kind regards 
Peter Shorney
*Just finished ‘strapping’ 2 chairs, a sofa and foot stool using your kits.
Perfect result. We are delighted with the finish. Followed your instructions and using some washing up liquid was a game changer, made things a lot smoother. Would recommend you to anyone with no hesitation. Thankyou.
Karen Ennew

*Hi Alan ,
The replacement straps you provided for my Ercol chair, although requiring a bit of force to install, have resulted in an excellent outcome and saved me approx £200 if I had gone to a local upholsterer.

*Dear Team
2 days ago my husband and I ordered replacement strap kits for an Ercol chair and a stool. The kits arrived this morning. We have just finished fitting them and are thrilled with the result. A BIG THANK YOU.
Best wishes
Nicky and David Almond

*Many thanks for the foc webbing strap to replace the one I damaged in installation using the metal Ercol installation tool. I ended up using cord and vaseline as suggested – but what a fight with the double straps! We have now completed the job and sofa is as good as new. Brilliant customer service thank you.
Regards Ian Boatman.

*Hi I just want to say many thanks for the recent chair replacement webbing
strap kit that I purchased from you. It arrived in good time and was perfect
quality. I have now re-webbed my 477 chair (on my own!) and am very pleased.
Thank you so much.
Steve Povey

*Hello Alan
Many thanks for your help the other day
Webbings fit beautifully, but I am exhausted from the effort! lol
Your awesome reputation is obviously well deserved.
Derek Paveling

*Thanks for your ordering help and fitting tips.
Our lovely Ercol E913 chairs are now re-strung and safe to use again.
I will recommend your company.

*What a pleasure to receive such brilliant customer service. Fitting the
straps was childs play with your easy to follow instructions. The chair has
now been delivered back to my 90 yr old Mum and she’s delighted so thanks
Val Morrall

*Hello Alan,
We have the parcel.
All OK and correct. Thank you.
You were very helpful and it was a pleasure to do business with you.
Best regards, Peter Maguire (& Jacqueline).

*Dear Alan,
I just wanted to send thanks for advising on straps for my fathers chair.
They fit perfectly and the chair has been restored!
Just need to get it cleaned
Thanks again
Leanne Jones

*Dear team
Invoice No.5445
I ordered the 334-1 strap kit last week and it was delivered today despite a delay by Royal Mail strike action. No problem
I am delighted with the product and its quality
There is certainly a knack in stretching the straps and fitting but thanks to WD40 and some redundant football boot laces, they are going in OK
Thank you for your help when I rang and for the excellent fitting instructions supplied
Kind regards
Joihn Duggan

*Good morning
You may be interested to hear that the repair has been completed, and it is perfectly feasible for it to have been done single-handed. The trick, apparently, is to lubricate the end of each loop with olive oil to make it easy to push through the upper and lower slots in the frame (just the tip of the loop, otherwise the strap becomes too slippery to grip). Once the first loop has been located, it helps if the strap is given a good pull, to stretch it sufficiently for insertion into the opposite slot. The lubricated second loop can then be easily pushed into the other side of the frame. Strong fingers are required to push the loop in far enough to allow insertion of the second dowel, but for the most part, that task was achieved without difficulty. On only one or two occasions was a screwdriver needed to lever the loop far enough through the frame to get the second dowel in. No string was necessary to help pull the loops through the frame. Alternating between longitudinal and transverse straps helped keep an even tension on the frame and prevent distortion.
Hope this helps
Brian Flemming

*Hi Alan,
I’ve been meaning to write back for a while and thank you for your incredibly prompt reply and help with my order.
We are so happy with the kit and instructions, and delighted with the results. We found our sofa in a charity shop and the kit has totally transformed it, it’s my favourite piece of furniture now (and also our cat’s).
Thanks again,

*Hello Alan,
Just to let you know that the order arrived in time and was collected from the Post Office. We fitted the straps this morning and are delighted with the results. Thank you very much for your prompt service. From start to finish it was a pleasure to deal with you, and I would recommend your company unhesitatingly.
Thank you again,
Katherine Walsh

*Many thanks for your really helpful, efficient and speedy service. Straps arrived today and are already fitted and chair looking good.
Many thanks
B Armstrong

*Thank you for the rapid supply of the comprehensive Ercol 2 seater settee
webbing kit along with clear instructions. Worth the money and
effort/exertion as now the settee is back to being as comfy as when it was
new. Our 87 year old Mother is well happy with her cherished settee being
rejuvenated. Thanks again, Colin & Cheryl

*Thank you so much for your help in double checking that I was ordering the correct straps for my chairs. My husband and I have fitted them and what a difference! They came very promptly and the instructions were very clear.
Kath Davies

*Dear Sir,
Thank you for arranging my order, I received it on the 27th and have fitted them to your instructions. I’ll be putting all the information under the cushion for future information.
Warm regards. Bruce Stone

I just wanted to say a huge thank you for everything. I cannot fault your customer service, or delivery of your products. Everything has been superb and all my needs catered for and made personal.
My chairs and settee have all been done and I’m very happy thank you.
Kind regards

*Chair straps arrived this am. Took less than 1h to get the knack and fit.
Very impressed with everything about Skiddaw Upholstery. So nice to deal with
small family business. Will be ordering straps for 3 seat settee in near
future. Many thanks. RP

*Thank you so much for your help with the webbing.
I’ve attached a couple of before, during and after pictures.
Kind regards and thanks again.
Your customer service is outstanding.

*Just wanted to say Thankyou….We have replaced all the straps on our Ercol chairs and daybed thanks to your speedy service and useful video and personal help on the phone. There is definitely a technique needed to master putting on those straps and by the time we were on the day bed…we had it sorted!!
We would recommend your company to anyone looking to replace their Ercol Straps
A great Service!
Brian and Christine Cunningham [Cornwall]

*Dear Sir or Madam,
I just wanted to acknowledge prompt receipt of my order and to say how grateful I am for the product.
The instructions were very clear and every item in the pack was the perfect fit for the Ercol chairs I have. The end result is excellent – so thank you very much!
Yours sincerely,
Philip Bourne

Sending a thank-you for your prompt delivery of my order I managed to fit the straps with the help of my son. Which meant I could use both chairs at a party on Saturday night.
Many thanks again and sending you a happy Christmas and all the best for the New Year.
Michael sharp

*Hello Alan!
I replaced the straps and my furniture feels like new again. Thank you so much for the delivery and your help.
Wishing you happy holidays!
in Finland

*Thanks so much for the prompt delivery!
I was a bit daunted about replacing the webbing but with the help of my
husbands foot and a bit of string we succeeded. Just wanted to thank you for
the straps – great website to help measure too – and helpful to have
measurements written on the straps. Many thanks!
Sue Williams

*Good afternoon Alan,
Thanks again for the service, I have now fitted the straps to my Ercol couch and it feels as new. The instructions and plan were invaluable.
Best regards Ian Wilson.

*Thank you so much for all your help – it makes such a difference to be able to talk to someone who knows what they are talking about… very much appreciated. I have placed the order, and, should it arrive on Saturday, one of my sons can help me wrestle the webbing into place!!
Kind regards
Another huge thank you!! my webbing arrived this morning, and my sons were both here, and able, with their strong hands, to reweb my little Ercol settee for me. Such amazing service from you, thank you.

*Many thanks for your friendly and prompt and helpful service.
Straps and dowels arrived today and now fitted…garden string and fairy
liquid worked a treat, and a lot of muscle, my 403 is looking great, ready
for its new cushions.
Many thanks.
Michele Brind

*Thanks for the confirmation. Ordered, fitted and it looks fab – brilliant service – thank you!

Absolutely brilliant. Fitted all on my own. I’m a 75 OAP female !!!
Had sore hands but did it.
Thank you x

*Just wanted to say many thanks for your help and prompt delivery of webbing kit. OMG the difference in the sofa with new webbing! It’s amazing. I’m going to order the set for the 2nd sofa now.
Thanks for your help,

*Hi there
Just wanted to thank you for your excellent customer service. The Ercol straps turned up today. I didn’t expect to see them for quite some time. New Zealand has been locked down due to Covid for two weeks now, our delivery service is not that quick at the moment.
Many thanks
Joycene Young

*Just fitted the straps and they are great.
Thanks for a great service and I have another chair that could do with new webbing so I’ll be in touch soon.
Richard Littlewood

*Hi Alan,
Just wanted to say how impressed we are with your replies to our questions especially on a Sunday and the prompt delivery.
We have successfully managed to fit the straps, definitely a two person job. We also appreciated the written advice. So pleased to have our chair back!
Kind regards

*Thank you very much for the swift and professional service supplied to us in the replacement of our Ercol straps. We were very pleased to be able to speak to a member of your team on a Saturday when we encountered a few problems with the fitting of the straps, but all sorted now.
We would recommend you without hesitation.
Julie Inns

I would just like to thank you for the prompt delivery of the straps to repair our Ercol settees. The new straps have given our faithful furniture a new lease of life and we have lost that sinking feeling. We were beginning to think we would have to exchange for something less low now we are getting older but the straps have sorted the problem.
Thank you so much
Heather Andrews

*Good morning Alan
Just a quick message to say how pleased I am top notch product top notch service thanks

I’d like to compliment you for your help. And the efficiency of your service
The straps arrived on time and were fitted speedily with the help of your useful instruction sheets
I shall be ordering more when I get myself organised!!
Thanks again
MYRA Street

*Many thanks for the prompt delivery
My chair is completely renewed with the new set of webbing.
My sister and I found that a little jar of Vaseline and a strong bootlace were the perfect tools to do a quick job!
Thanks again.

*Good Morning,
Webbing arrived and safely installed. Couch now looks great. Thanks for your assistance and excellent service.

*Hi, thank you so much for the speedy delivery of our replacement Ercol webbing. After a somewhat tricky start we managed to fit the new straps and the settee looks fantastic.
Irene Smith

My webbing arrived on Friday.
We fitted it today.
Thank you so much for all the help finding my model.
It fits perfectly after a bit of a wrestle.
My 3 seater sofa is like brand new
Francesca Rhodes

*To Skiddaw Upholstery,
Just a quick note to report that the webbing straps arrived last Thursday and with two of us applying some elbow grease the fitting was concluded satisfactorily on Saturday morning, having first extricated all the old broken straps and the rogue stapling! My daughter, whose chair it is, is now a very satisfied customer! Many thanks for your assistance and for providing the dowels, which worked a treat.
John Hitchman

*Thanks so much, my straps arrived and I re strapped the couch myself over the weekend. It was easy and it has made it feel brand new!

Just to say we fitted the straps on Saturday and it’s like a new couch!
Many thanks,

*Thank you
Received quickly and fitted the straps today.
Second time I’ve used your services and again I can’t recommend you highly enough.
The straps are great, exactly the right sizes and the supplied instructions are brilliant.
Thanks, I will definitely be back when I need more and will recommend you to family and friends.
Best regards

Just to say thanks for the great service
Got the webbing today and fitted it this
afternoon it is like a new chair superb.

*Dear Sir/Madam,
Thankyou so much for providing such a fantastic service !
The straps we ordered arrived speedily and fit perfectly, and my two old Ercol chairs are now as good as new.
I am very grateful and will certainly recommend your company to other people who, like me, like to upcycle old (but still good) furniture.
Kind regards,
Karen Bayes

*We ordered some replacement straps and dowels for an ercol sofa, and they were excellent. Thank you very much. The kit arrived on time and the instructions were very clear. I’m enjoying relaxing on my sofa again!

*Thank you, our order arrived yesterday and we fitted the straps straight away so our Ercol chair is like new again!
Rowena Langston

*I just wanted to say thank you for your prompt attention to my order. I placed the order on Monday afternoon, the straps were delivered to me yesterday and have been fitted this afternoon. All is well! Thank you for your excellent customer service.
Lyn Ransom

*Thanks for such efficient service. Replacement webbing ordered Sunday evening, received Thursday morning and refitted with the help of your excellent instructions. I expect many more years from our (inherited) 50 year old chair
Karen Shreeve

*Thank you. Arrived and fit perfectly. Chair comfortable and my backside no longer on the floor!
Great service. Happy new year,

*Thank you so much for being soooo quick with this order. It arrived Friday and I was lucky enough to have had my two grown up children here over the Christmas time. They took pity on me when I started re-webbing and I am now sitting on what feels like a brand-new settee! Timing perfect.
Thanks again and a happy 2021 to you.
Dorothy Robinson

*Just to say thank you for the prompt service and useful instructions. I live by myself so I had to manage the replacement operation alone, but was able to do this by hanging two 7lb weights on the string which enabled me to stretch the elastic through the slots. Pic attached of finished project.
Thank you again.
all the best,
Teresa Hall

*Good Afternoon
Just a note to say thank you so much for sending our straps for our Ercol day bed and to thank you for your quick and efficient service. We were most impressed by the ease of placing the order and the quick delivery to France.
After much huffing and puffing our straps fit perfectly and now the day bed is as good as new.
Thank you so much, good luck to you all in these difficult times
Mrs Bambi Krewiss

Thanks for the two sets of webbing and for your considerable help in identifying the correct kits. The Ercol chair and footstool are now restored and are as comfortable as ever. Somebody else described fitting as “character building” – I couldn’t put it better myself! I have to say it was worth the pain, although I was thinking of much more colourful words when stretching webbing and poking dowels through the loops.
Glad it’s done now!!

*All received – quick delivery. All fitted, settee like new – we have been sitting on flattened cardboard boxes and hardboard for 18 years!
Many thanks
Mrs I M B Sedgwick

*Hi there,
The webbing for our footstools arrived yesterday and we have managed to install it today.
Thank you for your excellent service.
Keep safe.
Sharon Stanley.

*Thank you for the straps I’ve just finished webbing my daybed and the straps were perfectly measured.
Will definitely recommend
Kind regards
Dawn long

Apologies that I did not manage to email you earlier, but the straps turned up on Friday. Thank you very much for all your help, getting them to us so quickly and also for the diagrams for layouts.

*Our order arrived this morning. Thank you very much for the prompt delivery and all your help in setting it up.
We refitted one chair this morning using an old Ercol tool that we still had. It was hard going but very satisfying to see the end result. We’ll get our breath back before we tackle the settee!
Thanks again,
Rob Murray

*Dear Sir/Madam
Firstly, my apologies as I didn’t catch the name of the person I spoke with on the phone.
I just wanted to send a quick note to say what a pleasure it has been to do business with yourselves. The person I spoke with was very helpful on the phone when we were trying to work out which strap set we needed. Also thank you for including instructions on how to fit the straps – that was very thoughtful of you. We received our order as expected today.
I really wish more businesses were like yours and I would happily recommend you to anyone considering buying from you.
Best regards
David Hauk

I just wanted to say thank you for the Ercol chair straps.
They arrived today and were a perfect fit.
Kind Regards,
Eric Haworth

Thank you so much for the straps, they arrived on Saturday and we successfully fitted them yesterday! My dad is so pleased to be able to sit in his chair once again! Thank you for all your help and your excellent knowledge, advice and service.
Kind regards,
Jackie Burke

*Hello…thank you for supplying the webbing which arrived safely on Saturday and was fitted to all the chairs and settees yesterday. I’m glad I heeded your comments regarding buying the completed kits rather than trying to make up the straps from component parts! It took some effort and my arms/wrists are having a day off today.
Many thanks.

*Hello Alan,
Took delivery today the 7th August 2020 of the two sets of straps for my Ercol chairs.
I would like to thank you for your efficient service and prompt delivery.
Fitting was easy following your instructions (very useful) and so nice to receive such information these days.
I will have no hesitation in using you again and recommending you.
Best regards,
Kevin Jackson

*Thank you for the prompt supply and delivery of our order. We had to fight a couple of the straps but extra lubrication won the day. We hope to work with you again in the future
Nigel and Judith Bell

*Thanks so much for the advice and the kit. Fitted this morning – really straight forward, just needed a bit of brute strength!

*Thank you very much for the replacement straps for the Evergreen armchair and the Jubilee sofa. I have re-webbed the chair and taking a breather after fitting the side to side straps and the z-shaped straps on the sofa! Your instructions are amazing and made the whole task very simple; in particular to stretch the straps by a centimetre or so at a time. I found that slotting the nylon cord loop into the tread of a trail shoe helped to provide the necessary force when stretching. Much harder with the z straps because the back of the sofa got in the way and the frame is lower at the back.
Altogether an excellent service and I salute you!
John Cockcroft

Thank you for your rather quick dispatch of my order (230) for 12 off Pirelli slot in straps. I placed my order on 18/06/22020 and took delivery on 20/06/2020. I am very impressed and well satisfied with the items concerned.
So once again thank you.
yours sincerely
Geoff. Flinders

*To the Skiddaw Team.
A massive thank you for helping up cycling our much loved Ercol Evergreen chair.
Photo attached of the newly fitted webbing provided from yourselves.
Ignore the nail holes as these were how we inherited it.
Incidentally, a tip already mentioned by you is to use copious amounts of fairy liquid this helps enormously.Plus the help of my good lady wife.
Many thanks again for you prompt, helpful and professional service.
Kind regards,
Mr and Mrs N

Thank you- my studio couch is like new.

*Hi Alan,
I just want to say thank you.
I recently ordered from you 2 sets of Ercol replacement straps for my Erocl chair and footstool. You were really friendly and helpful on the phone when I called and the straps were delivered in a timely fashion along with all the information I needed to replace them.
It was a great customer experience. Thank you.
I would happily recommend you to anyone who is looking to repair or upgrade their Ercol furniture.
Kind regards
Kirstie Baker

*Hi, I would like to compliment you on your excellent customer service, straps arrived this morning and are now fitted. Product looks good, delivery communication good , but particularly helpful on phone.

*Hi there,
I just wanted to say thank you for a great service and product. I ordered 2 sets of Ercoll strap kits to revamp some much loved Ercol 252 chairs and they were perfect – super easy and quick to fit and the chairs are as good as new! Definitely worth the little bit more I paid as it saved me so much time and the tensions were exact!
Thank you!!
Alison Stafford

*Thanks so much for sending our order so promptly. We fitted all the webbing today & our son said it looked like a new suite. To be able to bring life back to much loved furniture that we’ve owned for 35 years is a miracle. We can’t thank you enough.
Regards Roger & Elena Richards & family

*Hi Skiddaw Upholstery
Thank you for sending the Ercol straps so promptly on Monday. Much appreciated. Job done without problem and chairs being returned to owner today.
Kind regards

*Dear Alan
So I have finally fitted the new straps (with the help of a strong arm!) and I can’t tell you how delighted I am. The diagrams were excellent and the chairs and sofa all look fantastic. Thank you so much for your advice and excellent service.
Best wishes
Paula Daly

*Hi Alan,
Just a quick email to thank you very much for the prompt and efficient service.
The straps all arrived this morning, are now fitted and are a perfect fit!
Many thanks for expediting this order so quickly.. We are back home to Cyprus on Wednesday morning, so everything arrived in perfect time
Best regards

*All done – great success. Bit of fight but got there in the end. Thank you again for your prompt actions.

*Thank you very much for excellent service and product. They are a perfect fit . Job done.
Kind Regards
Susanne Shallcross

*Thank you for supplying the replacement straps for our chair. The fact that you emailed when you posted the straps and they arrived on time. The directions for replacing the straps were excellent and worked well.
Terry Tully

*Dear Alan,
Just a wee note from two very satisfied customers to thank you for the prompt delivery and excellent quality of the two sets of webbing supplied for our Ercol 204 and 204/2 furniture.
Everything fitted perfectly and the very detailed plans and installation guide were a great help.
All the very best,
John and Rosemary Jamieson, Glasgow.

*Many thanks for the kit which arrived today.
Though I am hopeless at DIY I managed to fit the kit with the help of your clear instructions.
The chair now looks great.
Many thanks again.
Best wishes

*Thanks for the straps which arrived with no issues and have now been fitted. My in-laws, both in their 80’s, are delighted to be able to use the armchairs in their sun-lounge again without fears of disappearing through the seats.
To be able to order pre cut straps with the Pirelli clips already attached and the straps at the correct tension for the spacing of the slots was a real benefit as I had anticipated having to order the elasticated webbing and clips separately and learn how to fit the clips. Even then, it would have been likely that the tension on each individual strap would have varied, since I would have been tackling the job as a complete amateur.
Brownie points have been earned from my in-laws and I must give you the credit for that!
Many thanks and kind regards
Nigel Gould-Smith

*We have successfully rewebbed our settee. My husband is not going to do this as a full time job! It’s quite an effort as you had mentioned in your instructions. For info, we found the handle of a paint roller helpful to stretch the website.
Thanks for your help.

Happy New Year!
Thank you for all your help in working out which straps I needed for my chair – they arrived promptly and fit perfectly.

*Just to say thank you for all your help in identifying webbing needed for my chair. It arrived very promptly and is now installed!
Thank you for making this so straightforward.
Happy New Year
Angela Marshall.

*Hi Alan,
The webbing I ordered arrived during the week and I managed to replace all straps successfully,
though the long side to side straps certainly required a hell of a force to stretch into position!
Was perfect in the end though, so thank you.
Happy Christmas.

*Thanks for sending the webbing so quickly. They arrived this morning and I have fitted them: hard work, but the chair is rejuvenated!
Kind regards

*Thanks for getting these to us so quickly. They have arrived and perfectly (after a bit of a workout getting them installed).
Great service, thank you,

*The Ercol webbing arrived today. Thank you for your help.
Excellent service.
Have a good Christmas.
Sandra Jones

Thank you for the Ercol chair and footstool webbing kits.
Really good and perfect fitting product, great service and excellent “how to fit” video on your website.
All installed in a couple of hours giving our inherited chairs and footstool another lease of life – perhaps another 50 years!
Thanks again and Regards
Barry Slate

*Just wanted to say many thanks for sending through the straps – they are perfect and I have managed to fit them successfully.
Your attention do detail in enabling me to identify the chairs is much appreciated.

Can’t thank you all enough for such a great service.
Everything arrived safely and the handwritten measurements on each strap were so needed!
Thanks again
Kindest regards
Sheila and Graham

*Hi Alan
I just want to say a big THANK YOU to you.
I have fitted all but one set of straps on my ercol furniture.
You made ordering really easy and it was a pleasure buying from you.
Even when there was a wrong set ordered, you swapped them with no hassle.
I will 100% recommend you and your company to everyone I know.
I will also be ordering another set of straps from you when my bank account allows it hehehe.
Again thanks for everything.
Patricia fawley

*Dear Alan,
Thank you for the straps.
Excellent fit if rather a struggle fitting them!
Charles Flanagan

*Hi Alan
Thanks so much for super speedy helpful service. My ercol is re-born!
What you offer is fantastic!
Many thanks Kate

*Thanks for prompt deliver. They fitted perfectly, a job well done. My daughter is immensely pleased that her chair has been restored and repaired. A cushion is on its way. With thanks again. W G Spedding (Rev)

* Thanks for the replacement slot-in webbing for my ancient studio couch, last re-furbished in about 1990 and, as my Mum confirmed, bought in 1956 for my parents’ first flat! Definitely a 2 person job to stretch the straps into place, now she is firm again instead of sagging!
Lovely to find a local specialist, now available by internet, to make up the webbing in a skilled way rather than spending hours doing it myself badly… I probably won’t need this service again for another 28 years but will recommend you if I see the chance!

* Thank you Alan. The replacement webbing for my old Ercol three seater are in place and great. It was like a “work out” fitting them but they are perfect.
I will order the two seater and chair etc in a weeks time.
Many thanks for your help.

* Thanks for your assistance, have received the kit and fitted it this weekend. The diagrams and fitting tips were much appreciated 🙂

* Hi, Alan,
I’ve just finished fitting the contents of the Ercol Replacement Strap kits that you sent me, for an Ercol 477E-1 easy chair, and wanted to thank you for making what I thought was going to be a job for a specialist company, a simple DIY job.
Malcolm Blain

* Hi Alan
I am very sorry but you are correct.
Please accept my apologies.
I as said very impressed with your service and once again am very sorry I was wrong. What a plonker I must be.
Will not hesitate in recommending you and your products in the future and will use your service again for sure.
All the very best

* Hi Alan,
Just wanted to let you know that I received my webbing on Friday and very happy with it – fitted to our 355 couch already and all good.
Many thanks again,

* Just wanted to message to say many thanks for getting the replacement wooden dowels out to me so quickly. The original ones I ordered must have been lost in the post but after contacting you the replacement set arrived the very next day. Many thanks for your great service.
Kind regards
Marianne Armitage

* Many thanks for your help and service, the webbing is now in place and the chairs are like new again.

Thanks for your help

* Thank you for your excellent service and your prompt delivery of the webbing
for my ercol day bed. All re webbed now and looking good.

* Hi belated thanks for your prompt and accurate supply.
These chairs my father made in the 60’s have been randomly losing their web support for some 10 years – but the new straps fit perfectly,
the chairs are now starting their next 50 years in style.
Chris Naylor

* Thank you so much for your extremely efficient, friendly and professional
service sending our replacement straps for a 1960s Ercol chair. And then when
I forgot to ask for the dowels they arrived at no extra cost the following
day. I have already recommended you to friends. Thank you.
Mary-Ann Chatterton

* Many thanks indeed for the straps ‘can’t believe how quickly they arrived!
It was a pleasure doing business with you.

Gary Arnell

* Sorry for the belated thanks for the order I placed on 3rd January 2018 –
invoice 2186. The replacement straps were perfect. I will be placing an order
shortly to replace the webbing in our other Ercol 2 seater settee.
Thank you.

* Fitted the new straps to my Ercol Jubilee two-seater sofa yesterday.
Excellent product enabled us to do a first-rate job. Good service every step of the way – thank you.

Many thanks for helping make our chair like new!
Have a great Christmas
Warmest regards,

* Pleased to say the package arrived yesterday morning and we have now completed the fitting of the new webbings.
The three pieces of furniture are now back like new.
Many thanks for your quick completion of the order.

* Hi Alan,
Webbing has arrived and now all fitted, many thanks for your help and fitting instructions.
Roy Spence

* Hello,
Just a quick note to say that the kit you supplied was simply brilliant. The instructions were really helpful and we easily removed the old webbing and fitted the new ones. The difference it made was amazing – it’s like a new sofa. We could not have been more happy with the service and product and it was especially kind of you to include the four extra dowels.
Thank you for everything.
Best wishes,
George and Kate Burrows

* Dear Alan
We were delighted to receive your webbing kit which was so well marked up and easy to fit.
Although we realise having an Ercol sofa sprayed in another colour may not be to your taste, I still wanted to share the wonderful result which certainly has made us very happy.
Kind regards
Kirsty Buxbom

I won’t hesitate to recommend your company!

Ken Shaw

* Alan
Thanks very much for the help and excellent service.
The fitting diagram enclosed with the order and the writing of the length on each strap was a great help, as were the fitting instructions. Washing up liquid was the key to quickly and easily fitting the Pirelli webbing.
Thanks again.
Peter Watson

* Brilliant service and the strapping fits perfectly
Many Thanks Derek

* Hi Alan,
Confirm safe receipt of this order…thanks also for the string fitting tip…far quicker & easier than using the Ercol tool.
All fitted in less than 30 minutes.
Well done.
Super quick service. Thanks again.

* Hello

* Dear Alan
Delivered yesterday. Really great product and excellent service. I am getting the knack of fitting the straps. Stool and chair done on 45 minutes; need to recover my grip and will tackle the settee tomorrow.
Many thanks
Peter Doig

* Hi Alan, just fitted the straps to our Ercol chairs. Instructions worked a treat. Many thanks for extending the life of the chairs.

service and simple instructions. Thank you. Mary Johnshaven

* Just to say thank you – the straps have arrived and have fitted them already!
What a great piece of design – so easy to do!
Many thanks
Esther Allen

* Hello Alan, the new straps arrived today and me and my wife have just fitted them. They are great and we both have one arm longer and stronger than the other now. Many thanks for the prompt and excellent service.

* I just wanted to say what I meant to say in the order note – thanks for your patience and expertise in helping me identify the correct ercol model.
Hannah Reeves,

* Dear Skiddaw,
Many Thanks for rapid delivery of your excellent product.
Were fitted “after a fight” yesterday evening. Got easier with familiarity!
I found lubricating with Cussons liquid hand wash very good: possibly because of fat content?
The spring steel tool which came from Ercol some years back with a strap kit is a bit of a beast. Ercol’s last kit was not a patch on the assembly quality of yours, their fixing pops were all over the place, many possibly too near the edge of the strap.
I may have to start saving for a 3-seater ‘Old Colonial’ settee kit.

* Hi. Got my new webbing yesterday and fitted it that night. Great quality and I now can sit on my daybed again. Thanks for a great service. Kerry

* Thank you for the quick, efficient delivery of our webbing order.
The instructions were clear and with a bit of brute-force cooperation (as you warned) it fitted perfectly.
Many thanks, and this should give our Ercol chair many more years of use.
We wholeheartedly recommend your webbing kits.
David and Susan Jones

* The straps I ordered on Friday 24th March (Invoice 555) arrived on Saturday.
Thank you very much for the prompt sending. They fit beautifully.
Barry North.

* Than you for the straps, they fit very well and are beautifully made. We are delighted.
kind regards

* Brilliant service Alan
All straps received yesterday and fitted last night. Quite a good cardio workout !

* Thank you for the new webbing which arrived on Friday. Which is now installed along with the new cushions. Very pleased looks lovely as well as now usable.
Many thanks

* Hi Alan,
Order received very quickly and now fitted. Easy peasy,

* Hi,
Just to let you know how impressed I have been with your service.
The parcel arrived a day ahead of schedule. One chair down – three to go. Quite a struggle even with two of us, but very pleased with the result. The old webs were marked very similarly to yours. I bought the suite in Dorset from eBay so no idea of its history.
Many thanks,
(New Zealand)

* Dear Alan,
Thank you for supplying my new Ercol webbing so efficiently. Your clear
instructions and labelling made it straight forward for me to do the job
myself. Also the way you have the website set up enabled me to easily
identify which suite I had. I now have a lovely suite which is as good as
new, and I am proud to say I did it myself – thanks to you!

* Kit arrived on Tuesday
Fitted on Wednesday
All good – thank you!
Best regards, Iain Macdonald

* Fitted with moderate huffing and puffing by teatime yesterday. Your string tip saved a lot of time and effort Arrived lunchtime Wednesday.
Thanks for a swift response
Tony Melbourne

* Thank you for the brilliant service. Last time we did our chairs, webs
ordered via a local Ercol stockist took 10 weeks to arrive from Ercol. This
time for our sofa, we placed the order on a Saturday evening, received the
webs the following Tuesday and fitted them on Thursday – over 9 weeks
Thanks again,
Roy & Liz Dobb

* Thanks for prompt delivery.
Webbing kit arrived this afternoon and fitted this evening in around 15-20 minutes.
We are really pleased with result as we now have an easy chair we can use without falling through.
Thanks again
Roger Parker

* Just received my chair straps and have already fitted them to the chair. Brilliant. Thank you for your excellent service and a really good product.
Patricia White

* Dear Alan
The webbing for our 1960’s daybed arrived yesterday – a very quick delivery to Australia. My husband and son fitted the webs this morning in about an hour, with a bit of elbow grease, which has given the daybed a new lease of life. It’s very comfortable to sit on now.
Many thanks for your excellent service.
Best wishes,
Hilary Webster

* Thank you very much for an extremely prompt and efficient service – the parcel arrived this morning, less than 72 hours after we ordered it.
Catherine Bradley

* Hello,
Just a quick note to say thank you for ensuring that I received the straps for my 203,2-5 in time for Christmas. You said it would be 100 times better, and it is!
Wishing you a Happy Christmas and New Year.
Best wishes,

* I’m just writing to say a big thank you for the very fast processing of my order. I replaced the strapping on an Ercol armchair today and Santa now has a seat to sit on!
Esther Hughes

* Thank you so much for getting this order to me so quickly, it has just arrived.
This means I’m now on track for Christmas; you certainly have a loyal customer from now on and I will recommend you to anyone I know who is into upholstery.
A very happy Christmas and all the best for 2017,

* Hello,
Just to let you know that the order arrived on Friday and that the straps fit perfectly.
Thanks very much.
Ian Hornby

* The straps were received on 15th Nov. and fitted the same day: The studio couch is as good as new; not bad for a piece of furniture purchased around 1960.
Thank you.
Eric Buckley

* Hi Received the order and have done the chairs – brilliant job, like a new suite.
Patsy and Ian P

* Morning Mr Skiddaw!
Sorry, I didn’t ask your name the other day when we spoke
I just wanted to get in touch to say a huge THANK YOU for the excellent service that you provide. Your website was useful and informative. The webbing was perfect for all of the pieces that I ordered and the instructions were really clear and helpful. And when we had a chat you were very friendly too! I know you are working very hard so I just wanted to let you know that what you are doing has helped me out amazingly. A job that usually takes me the best part of the day was done in such a short time, with the help of my husband – the brawn behind my brains!!
Anyway, I’ll be in touch again when I get my next Ercol re-webbing order and in the meantime, don’t go working too hard.
Enjoy your weekend
Very best
Owner & Upholsterer

Straps fitted fine. Thanks for such a prompt service. We now have new life in our Ercol furniture!

* Hello there
Thank you for the order.
Your whole service – information on your site, communication, promptness of delivery and the quality of the product – is excellent.
I’m really enjoying sitting on my buoyant chairs instead of gingerly sinking towards the floor.
Thank you Alan.
Pat Needle

* Dear Sir,
Thank you so much for your amazing service. Our webbing (ordered on Tues) arrived first thing this morning (Thurs) & we (excitedly) fitted it immediately. We have slightly sore hands now but are over the moon with it. Thanks so much for the diagrams & instructions – so helpful & kind. You were right – the cushions do get a new lease of life with new webbing! It looks great in our kitchen – we just need some new loose covers now. We’re going keep an eye out for another vintage suite for our living room so hope to be ordering from you again soon.
Thanks so much, best wishes,

* Received my order this morning. Thank you very much for a speedy and
efficient service much appreciated .

Just finished the first of my many of Easter DIY jobs.
The webbing now all fitted and the instructions were very helpful, in ensuring the webs were fitted in the correct place.
Thanks for your help.

* Dear Sir
Many thanks for your prompt attention to my order.
I have received it and have now completed fitting the straps to our chair and settee,
a little bit of elbow grease and some fairy liquid and everything was fine.
Thank you once again and we wish your company every success now and in the future.
John Kingdon

* Thank you for the excellent service. The webbing arrived on Thursday and My wife and I fitted it this morning. It all went without a hitch. If this webbing lasts as long as the original (30+ years) we’ll not have to do them again in our lifetime.
Richard Allen

* Dear Alan
Straps arrived this morning.
Fitted one set – absolutely brilliant.
