We like to focus on what we do well so that you'll be stoked when you pick your shoes and boots up, on time as promised every time, guaranteed.
Proper Shoe Repairs
We only do proper Shoe Repairs. Some people like quick dodgy jobs, where there is little thought or care given. We would prefer to do a great job that not only looks non-repaired but is also comfortable and lasts for the life of the shoe. We all spend a lot of our lives at our Shoe Repair store. We find it far more fun to spend our time with people that want what we have to give, “Proper Shoe Repairs’. We aim for your life and our lives to be that little bit happier because of your relationship with us.

Making the most of your time
Your time is very important to you, and that makes it important to us. We usually run on time and we will call you if we are not on schedule to get your repair done when we have promised you. So you can safely assume your job will be done on time every time. There is no need to ring us. If you do decide to ring us please be prepared to speak to Mary the answer phone.

Please also leave enough information so that when we return your call we are prepared with answers to your queries. Other things you can do to help make your repair go smoothly.
If your shoes are clean, we will assume you care about how they look and take maybe a little more time and put a little bit more effort into your repair. Always bring the pair of shoes, as we don’t want them to get lonely. No I joke, it just makes it easier for us.
Payment is expected when you drop off your shoes and we welcome EFTPOS
Sometimes with new customers we get a startled look when we ask for payment as the shoes are been dropped off. We do it this way for a number of reasons, the main one being, it speeds things up considerably when you come to pick up your shoes and people often all come in at once to collect their shoes. It also gives piece of mind for the customer as they now know the total cost of the repair, not just an estimate ... that might rise!
What happens if we find something else that needs repairing?
In the event that we do find something else that needs repairing we will either just do it and not charge you or we will phone you and discuss it with you, and then you can pay the extra when you collect the shoes, this generally happens less than 2% of the time
