Let’s talk about fleet vehicle maintenance repair. While construction vehicles are built to be durable, that’s not always the case with the interior. Depending on the usage and care, sooner or later the seat of a pickup will start tearing at the seams…
Most of the time, you’ll notice first traces of damage in the front corner of the seat where the section of foam or fabric needs replacement. If that’s the case, contact your trusted upholstery company right away so they can replace only the bad foam or torn fabric. Trust us, regular maintenance will save you a ton of money!
Repairing A Broken Back Seat
One of the very common repairs we deal with are broken back seats. The damages are usually caused when a driver leans into the seat back while exiting the truck. The torque created by driver’s shoulder can crack the seat frame and bust a support brace. To repair the damage, the cracked frame needs to be welded and the horizontal support bar reattached. Fabricating a steel cross brace stiffens the frame even more. To prevent future damage, it’s good to wrap sections of the chair back in burlap cloth and thick jute padding.
Hidden Truck Seat Repairs
Sometimes it’s hard to spot a truck seat damage. For example, there might be issues with the seat that you won’t be able to see until you strip off the old fabric. The smartest thing to do is always to fix the seat before installing the seat cover.
Repairing Truck Bench Seat
When a truck seat starts to disintegrate, it’s tempting to put off repairs. However, if you wait too long with repairing a torn vinyl, you might bust a seat frame, shred foam and ruin covers on top of it. If the frame is badly damaged, upholsterers will have to rebuild it. If the vinyl seat is trashed, it will need to be reconstructed as well.
