What does a furniture repair service include?

Furniture repairs include a mixture of woodworking and upholstery skills, depending on the type of furniture and fix. Most of the time, your repair person will come to your home, but if they need more time or equipment to complete your repair, they may take your furniture home with them. Here are some of the most popular furniture repair services:

Bed repairs

Common problems for beds include broken slats, scratched wood, and broken frames. Or you might need a cot repair to sand and repaint your old cot so it’s fresh and ready for a new baby. Your bed repairer or sofa bed repairer will assess the damage before explaining your options. Then they’ll use things like glue, spare parts, sanding paper, stain, and paint to help your bed look its best.

Wardrobe, cupboard & drawer repair

Kitchen cupboard and kitchen drawer repair may involve replacing drawer tracks and hinges or painting and sanding. Wardrobe repairs usually depend on whether it’s a freestanding or built-in wardrobe. Common issues include broken doors, shelving, hinges, and door tracks. However, for more advanced repairs, you may need to find a cabinet maker.

Couch & upholstery repair

Upholstery repair is one of the most commonly requested types of furniture restorations. From sunken couch cushions to ripped fabric, most couches start to look a bit shabby before you’re really ready to move on. Your lounge repair might include stain removal, restitching, repairing broken feet or frames, or replacing webbing, zips, foam, or springs. Recliner repairs may also include fixing or replacing parts like motors, electrical bits, cables, levers, footrests, and more. Or if you need leather furniture repaired, your technician may be able to fix issues like fading, scratches, tears, and peeling.

Table, desk & chair repair

You can get all sorts of tables fixed, from dining tables to table lamp repair and coffee table repair. Most tables are made from wood, with common repairs including re-attaching broken legs, sanding, and staining. If you need an office chair repair, your handyman may look at replacing key parts, like armrests, wheels, and levers, while dining chair repairs normally involve reupholstering, fixing broken legs, sanding, and staining.

Fix dinings chairs x 4


Kingston ACT, Australia

18th Jul 2022

After someone to fix four dining chairs. They were flat pack from Harvey Norman and have been put together, but are pretty wobbly and just need to be drilled together better so they are more stable. I don’t have a drill or the strength to fix the problem, as the initial consultation included making new holes in the seat of the chair. Should be a quick and easy job for someone who knows what they’re doing (ie not me!). - Due date: Needs to be done on Saturday, 23 July 2022

Bruce was friendly and efficient! Great service and such a help.

Sand 5 Wood chairs ready to stain


Watson ACT, Australia

4th May 2022

i have 5 bentwood chairs ( one that we have partially completed sanding) that have been painted white on the top and I need someone to sand them completely back to natural wood ready for me to stain. I’d like to get them back in a reasonable period of 2 weeks or so.

Used Tim And his offsider to hand sand some bentwood chairs for us to stain ourselves. They were done as expected, picked up, dropped off and we’re really happy. A few message back and forth about pick up and drop off times which changed but wasn’t an issue as we were flexible with time - preferred to have a good end result. Would definitely go to Tim again.
