A Regal Transformation
A Well-worn Problem
The open road takes its toll on leisure vehicles so regular servicing is necessary to maintain top condition and guarantee a long useful life. High-mileage causes engine and chassis wear but, as is sometimes forgotten, seats and soft furnishings too begin to ‘show their age’. When the time arrives for an upholstery makeover and the search for a suitable restorer begins,
A Restoration Family
Established in 1997, Regal Furnishing Ltd provides a specialist upholstery facility for leisure vehicles. This small family firm, based in Ilkeston, Derbyshire, promises a fast, friendly service in a relaxed atmosphere. Besides touring caravans and motorhomes, the company also renews interior furnishings in static caravans, houseboats and horseboxes.
A Choice Upgrade
A first-class revamp begins with a careful choice of quality furnishing materials. Regal carries a wide range of contemporary and traditional fabrics, stocking 170-200 rolls at any one time. Sample books are also available to extend the choice of materials even further. The service is customised and flexible: foam fillings can be replaced, plain/shaped cushions revived and zips repaired. There is even a fully-lined curtain option and all interior furnishing materials are guaranteed fire-retardant in accordance with British Standard fire regulations.
A Grand Day Out
Leisure vehicle refits are booked in on a 24 hour turnaround so touring caravans and motorhomes can enjoy a totally ‘Regal’ experience. The company has electric hook-up and fresh water facilities on-site and recommends arriving the day before. This allows time to inspect other factory work in progress and to make final decisions about the colour, pattern and design of upholstery materials. Regal’s upholstery experts begin work bright and early at 7.30am on the following day to spruce up and restore the vehicle to its former glory. Customers can choose to stay and watch the transformation or take the opportunity for a day out visiting nearby Nottingham or Derby. In any event the newly-refurbished vehicle will be ready for collection by 4.30pm on the same day, in prime condition and with a fresh lease of life.
A Flexible Service
Regal Furnishing is willing and able to meet the varied needs of different restoration projects. For static caravan sites and dealers, Regal arranges site visits. Individual static caravan, houseboat and horsebox owners can bring along upholstery items for professional repair and refurbishment. DIY enthusiasts are welcome to call to view and purchase fabric and fillings for their own projects. Thus everyone can experience and enjoy the benefits of a truly ‘Regal’ transformation.
