LTT Leather

Is there demand for leather restoration!?

Successfully become established carpet and upholstery cleaning and time to add a service/start something alongside. Genuinely I don’t think you could run a business just on leather cleaning but restoration is a diff game. Im considering everything but this does interest me, can anyone in the trade confirm there is money to be made?? Thanks

Daniel Darlow and a couple of others are making a good business out of purely doing leather.

There is money in it, but it is like all things you need to market it right. I am happy just cleaning it. Time spent for pounds charged I found cleaning more profitable.

But if you have a passion for it then go for it.

Without a doubt the demand is there for leather work.
What was supposed to be a little add on to our Carpet and Upholstery cleaning business, has now taken over, We have been booked solid for the last two weeks with colour repair work.

Hi Steve.
If you were in Devon, Cornwall or Somerset, I would say there is no way you can make a buck from it.:evilgrin:
As you are in Sheffield I would say go for it BIG TIME as there is a massive market for leather so long as you broaden your mind, and as they say , and think outside the box.
If I was a younger man I would have franchised several parts of the business I am now doing and would be sitting somewhere warm, (hold on I'm in Devon and its smashing!) If you wish to PM me and I will give you some insights....real information comes at a price!
