FAQ's for our Repairs & Alterations Service
How much do repairs and alterations cost?
The cost of the repair or alteration varies on a case by case basis, the job is usually priced on the basis of how long the repair or alteration will take and the difficulty of it. Check out our price calculator to get an estimated price of the job. If you require a job that’s bespoke, contact us at email@example.com.
Who carries out the repairs and alteration?
We have an in house tailor who has over 20 years of experience of dealing with all sorts of garments. As well as this, we work with a network of experienced tailors whenever certain bespoke jobs are out of range for our in-house tailor.
How do I take measurements for my repair or alterations?
Certain alteration jobs are easy to do measurements such as length of trouser/dress whereas other ones such as tapering can be quite difficult and requires a tailor to do measurements. This is why we encourage to take time to come in-store for these types of jobs. A popular way in which customers can get accurate measurements is by giving an item that is perfect fit to the tailor who will then replicate its fit on the item you intend to repair or do alterations on.
What types of alterations do you do?
We have a wide variety of different jobs we can do such as sleeve and trouser shortening, re hemming, tapering and zip repairs. However no job is to big for us and we like to solve problems for our customers, so if you have a job that is quite bespoke, get in touch with us firstname.lastname@example.org.
How long does your repair and alteration service take?
Repairs and alterations can take up to 3-4 days depending on the job, we will always be in touch if we need more time.
What do I do before my first pick up?
Simply put your clothes to be dry cleaned in a separate bag, if you are using more than one service e.g ironing only or washed and ironed service, then separate the garments into separate bags depending on the service you’d like. Then just have your phone nearby and wait for our driver notification to let you know of his arrival for pick up.
