When Is The Time Right For Office Chair Repair?

Whilst at work, the essential feeling we should be experiencing is comfort. Being comfortable allows us to quickly settle into our environment, preparing us for the day ahead, readying us to unleash our skills and abilities on the work we need to do. So when we sit somewhere that isn’t comfortable, it can be tough to express our abilities in a natural way.

With the cost of establishing a completely new furniture set-up being extremely expensive (not to mention being needless, in many cases) office chair repair is perfect to balance the fine line between need and cost. If you consider that comfort may often be the difference in employees being able to produce great work for the business, then improving the qualities of the furniture will make for a wise investment.

The Right Time For Office Chair Repair

If you’re thinking about improving the qualities of your own furniture set-up, how do you know when the time is right for office chair repair? You obviously don’t want to spend money on something that isn’t needed, nor do you want to leave it too late, running the risk of broken down furniture severely affecting the comfort and capabilities of your employees.

Here is some advice on knowing when the perfect time is to repair your furniture:

  • If any seats are too small, large, or narrow to provide enough support to the lower part of the body.
  • The edge of the seat is not rounded or padded to provide adequate support to the knees.
  • If any chairs tip over when the user leans sidewards or forwards – or rolls away when used on a floor sans carpet.
  • Any seats have mechanisms that are broken.
  • If the seat is extremely high so the user’s feet hardly touch the floor, with no option to adjust the height of the chair.
  • The armrests are not positioned correctly so they interfere with the desk in front of them.
  • If any chairs, that are set on mats, roll away and don’t stay in the same position when the user stands up or sits down.
  • Any chairs that may reach the edge of any mat they’re placed on and then tip.

Any of these problems may become common issues if any of your office chairs are not appropriate for the needs of your employees or simply need repairing. If you’ve noticed any of these issues and/or are looking to give your furniture a new lease of life with office chair repair, the experts here at Waldron will be happy to help.

The chairs are fantastic Thanks so much. The 2 chairs you reupholstered look fantastic. I thought they were two new ones they look so good. In fact our receptionist liked them so much she’s grabbed one immediately and swapped it.

We saved over £500,000 refurbishing our office chairs with Waldron’s rather than purchasing new.......
"............before "finding" Waldron, I had received some very negative responses from several other upholstery firms.......... ..........from the time Waldron was recommended to me I received helpful, sympathetic and effective advice, from my initial enquiry, with no "pushy" sales pressure at any time.......... Given the complex work involved, and choice of strong material, and the high quality of personal service I thought your charges were extremely reasonable. Certainly infinitely cheaper than having to completely replace an essential chair. I was delighted with the work done. The upholstery looks to have been done to a very high standard, on what as I have mentioned was quite a challenging chair to work on. The fabric looks superb, and in fact the chair looks better than it did before I am so pleased that I have found Waldrons and will not hesitate to recommend your Company to anyone i have contact with who might be seeking a similar service."

We have been very impressed with your service. Both the quality of the workmanship and your coutesy has made it a pleasure dealing with you. Thank you for a beautifully refurbished chair Royal Commission for the Exhibition of 1851 ......... I am writing to confirm just how pleased we have been with the work you have done for us recently. The recovered chairs, apart from now being exactly the colour we wanted, look as good as new and have made the surgery look the way we want it to look.
