Wheel repairs

There are today very few wheelrights left, it is a dying skill. Timber wheels look beautiful and have either hoops (metal) or rubber tyres. Either type are repaired or manufactured by Wellington Carriage Company. The company does not repair metal wheels but we can re-rubber clencher type wooden or metal wheels.


Traditional vehicles were made with natural materials which look quite beautiful when in good condition. Wellington Carriage Company has re-upholstered countless old vehicles over the years, many have gone on to win driving competitions thanks to their skilful reproduction by Philip. Obtain a quotation by supplying photographs.


Traditional vehicles were always painted by hand. Hand painting requires great skill and knowledge of paints. It is possible to tell the difference between modern spraying work and the subtle clever artisanship of the carriage painter. Quotations are supplied and advice given if you send in your photographs. Needless to say, a well painted vehicle will look wonderful. Good paints last for many years with proper care.
