Where it all began
Mobile upholstery repairs officially formed in 2009,
but our story begins when co-owner Mark Watkins
joined the family upholstery business in mid-90s in
the United Kingdom.
During the first couple of years, Mark went on numerous leather training courses to enhance and develop his skills and passion for leather and leather repairs. In 2004 Mark left the family business and immigrated to Australia. At this time, he also formed a close friendship with our other owner Craig Lowman. During Mark’s time in Australia before Mobile Upholstery Repairs were formed, he worked as a service technician for one of Australia’s leading furniture retailers.
Shortly after Craig started working for the same furniture retailer. Within a year Mark saw an opportunity in the market and started Mobile Upholstery Repairs from his garage. At the beginning, Mark worked part-time for the furniture retailer as well as servicing his own customers. Mobile Upholstery Repairs was growing fast and soon there was enough work for Mark to service his own customers’ full time.
He finished working with the furniture retailer as an employee, however, kept the relationship going by becoming their contractor providing professional after-sales service.
Craig joined the company soon after and became a partner in the business. Mark and Craig work alongside Mark’s wife Eva who is behind the scenes using her experience in business management to manage Mobile Upholstery Repairs’ accounts.
Mark’s can do attitude and excellent customer service brought on board more furniture retailers creating work opportunities for the business to grow further.
In late 2009, Mobile Upholstery Repairs moved into its first professional workshop and employed a full-time upholsterer.
As of today, we have a team of five furniture technicians and three office staff. Mobile Upholstery Repairs currently services the areas of Gold Coast, Brisbane, Sunshine Coast, northern NSW and Toowoomba, and will continue to grow to match the growing demand.
