Boat covers

Can anyone suggest a company who are keen to make some new "all-over & console & seat" covers for me and repair some of my existing ones?

We probably order 6 -8 new all-over covers a year and plenty of seat/console/repair work!

We pay promptly, but our current supplier seems to put us very much to the back of the queue in service terms?????

Would be happy to hear any recommendations - even if you are recommending yourself!

Regards

Steve

Once again i find myself endorsing what Ian has just said....

Covercare are very, very good, so good in fact that i am now only using them for our cover requirments down here at the Esso refinery marine terminal. I have only Just put an order in today for another 5 covers of various shapes and sizes. .

Ian...next time you speak to Sharron or Dave you should ask them for commision for introducing them to me ....lol

Wow, your glass is definately half empty ..

I think you'l find that we are a long way from being considered Covercare's core business. In fact when our orders go in we get put at the bottom of the pile like anyone else.
Sure they may give me a slightly better price due to the higher volume of orders that we place but if you actually meet the couple that run it you will soon realise how genuine they actually are.
I have chosen to repeatedly use Covercare not necessarily because of the prices but because of the personal service they provide and nowadays, personal service goes a long way!

Try them one day for a quote, i'm sure you wont be disapointed.

RIB Cover

These people did a good job for me at a reasonable price, with efficient service. Around 400 for a 5.5m RIB.
