Our Testimonials

“Nothing short of a miracle…,” “absolutely stunned…,” “the cost was reasonable…”. Some of the feedback our satisfied clients and partners give us.

Mike Fitzgerald Associates

We have just received back our leather lounge suite, which went in for reconditioning. The results are nothing short of a miracle. This kounge suite had suffered badly from the ravages of time,two cats and a dog. It was stained, scratched, worn, faded and scarred. We could not see how it could be restored to optimum condition. When the carriers brought it into the lounge we couldn’t believe the transformation. It looks brand new. Do you have wizards, goblins and magicians working for you? Not only is the standard of work extraordinary but the job was done within the week as quoted. Thank you. We are having frequent “lounge suite” viewings and receiving astonished comments and praise from our friends.

European Leather Care is by far the best restorer of leather and vinyl I have ever used. I gave them what I considered impossible to fix – badly worn leather seats on my old LX470 – and they came up almost as new. Gouges, nicks and tears in the leather and vinyl interior were made invisible, and by far the best example of their work was our leather sofa which had been badly scratched by our cat. The results were remarkable. What’s probably even more remarkable is that I rarely give testimonials like this since I had always found it hard to get quality repairs done. Since then I have entrusted my Bentley Continental GT and LX570 to Alex and his team, and the results have been astounding. I am a customer for life!

Having just got our couches back and seen the totally outstanding job you have done I would have absolutely no hesitation in recommending your company to anyone. We are absolutely stunned that you have been able to restore them to like new given the extent of the cat scratches and pulls. Forever thankful to you for such a professional job.

The purpose of this letter is to advise how happy we are with the service provided by your company. We initially contacted Alex who assured us he could fix the problem. We also explained that our customer had guests arriving from abroad and, as the upholsterer had removed the settee to his workshop to take the arm off, the job was fairly urgent. The Leather from the arm arrived in your workshop on Saturday. Alex phoned on Monday with the quote and confirmed you would be working on it straight away. We received the repaired leather back in our office on Wednesday morning. Thank you once again for your commitment to customer care, which serves to assist us in our aim to provide this same high level of service.

He was extremely impressed with the quality of your work and actually had difficulty finding the slash that was the main cause for repair in the first place. Your kindness in refurbishing his case has pleased his Excellency very much and also your haste in repairing it for him. Last but not least, His Excellency appreciated your kind words, which i passed on to him, and also your generosity in repairing and refurbishing his case free of charge. Thank you again.

I am writing to say thank you for the wonderful restoration work  your company under took on our three piece leather lounge suite. Please pass on our thanks to your hard working team. The couch looks and smells like new and we are very pleased with the standard of work replacing the worn and cracked panels. The cost was reasonable and it would have been a lot more expensive to purchase a new suite. We would highly recommend your work to others who need some TLC on their couches – well worth it.

Wendy Schrijves

Thank you so much for the absolutely superb job you have done with restoring our old leather 3 seater couch. It looks brand new, which is really saying something since it must be at least 14 years old. We can not fault your workmanship or the professional service you have given us. The only concern we have is that the matching two seater is now going to look very old and shabby next to it….maybe the 2 seater might need to pay you a visit also. Thank you again! It has been a real pleasure to use your company.

Dear Jason,Just a quick note to thank you for the wonderful refurbishment of the seats in the Bently. The service and the spirit was first class. The car feels totally transformed. Once again many thanks.

In December last year I took in my favorite leather jacket that my Dad bought me for my birthday in 2003. It was pretty knackered and had a decent amount of wear. I was contacted by, I think, Peter who advised of all aspects of damage, how it was likely to have been caused and what they could do to repair it. I also asked to have it properly cleaned. Peter was thoroughly professional and knowledgeable – I was really impressed. When I got it back I was properly amazed – it looked almost brand new. I’d thoroughly recommend ELC Ltd to anyone – the old school customer service I received was exceptional and the end result was fantastic. Thanks very much ELC Ltd – I’ll see you in about ten years when me jacket is looking shabby again!

 Just wanted to say I had a leather jacket with ink marks on the front. I needed it cleaned prior to going overseas. They started on it immediately and it was ready the day after that. All the ink marks had gone and the jacket looked brand new again. I will certainly be recommending these guys to everybody.

I just picked up my  late husband’s brown suede hat, which you have been cleaning and rejuvenating for me. Honestly, I nearly cried, and now wish I had taken before and after photos. The difference you have made is astonishing and  it’s hard to believe it’s the same crushed, mildewy, smelly, damp hat I  gave to you.I am absolutely thrilled with what you’ve done and I look  forward to wearing it for another 30 years. Thank you, thank you for your  care and attention. Having it back in wearable condition means so much to  me. Best regards,

Hi Jason. Thanks for your call to see how we were making out with the “new” lounge suite. As mentioned, we agonized over the economics of buying a new suite or renewing the good old comfortable Kovacs suite we had. The quality of your renewal work was such that we now have a hard job convincing visitors that this is not a new suite. The new colour scheme fits the new house and we’re delighted with the result. Thanks for your good workmanship and service.

WJ & TM Allen

We would like to compliment you on the excellent job done restoring our leather lounge suite to an optimum condition it looks like a brand new suite. We are so pleased with the work done by you we would have no hesitation in recommending your workmanship and service provided by your company. We would also say the service from the carriers who picked up and delivered the suite back to us was very good they rang and notified us exactly when they would pick up and deliver so no time was wasted hanging about all day waiting for them, a very efficient service. It is quite rare these days to have such excellent workmanship and service provided by a company.

Dear Jason. A note to accompany my cheque. Many thanks for the superb job you made of repairing a panel in our lavender couch. I am 100% happy with the result. It’s good to know there are some good craftsman still about.

Dear Jason

I’ve just come home from work to find our living room looking spectacular with our revived leather lounge suite! I cannot believe how amazing and brand new it looks. The leather is so fresh and clean and so beautifully coloured and it is really like having a brand new suite again!

You and your team do such remarkable work – truly outstanding! I also want to thank you for your prompt service and how courteous you have always been to us with our queries regarding your work on our suite.

I cannot recommend you and your team of very hard workers enough! Simply brilliant work and I would be happy to recommend you and your team to anyone needing anything done to their leather items!

I also was very happy with the Welly Mover’s people – Raeleen and her boys were very easy to work with – so our compliments to them as well!

May we wish you and your team a very Merry Christmas and a very prosperous and successful 2014!

All the very best wishes from 2 very, very happy clients!

Hi folks

I just want to say a big thank you to the team for an absolutely beautiful job on my humble knee high leather boots. Quality expensive boots but 4 years old, light brown and out of fashion. The leather was gone. I picked them up this morning and they are now black as requested. They are absolutely beautifully restored and rennovated! These are designer boots but nobody cares. But you knew and you called me with genuine classy concern about my lil old personal treasures and then you turned them into exactly what I wanted. My favorite comfy boots are now black and absolutely gorgeous! I’ve had comments already. Master craftsmen and women! I highly recommend the leather experts at European Leather Care to all women wishing to re enjoy their leather wear!
