Wheel repairs

There are today very few wheelwrights left, it is a dying skill.Wooden 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 clincher type wooden and sometimes 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 skillful reproduction by Philip.

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 spray work and the subtle clever artisanship of the carriage painter. Estimates 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.
