Top 6 Providers of Auto Upholstery Services in Winnipeg

In the past, car seats were made of wood and metal. While they provide the convenience of being seated during travels, they were quite uncomfortable.

It wasn’t until the 70s and 80s when automakers decided to make seating more comfortable and supportive by adding foam covered with leather onto the metal frames. 

If you’re looking for auto upholstery that’s right for you, you’ve come to the right place – we reviewed the best auto upholstery service providers in Winnipeg. Read on to see which one suits you best!

How much does it cost to have a car re-upholstered?

As of writing, the average price of a complete car re-upholstering costs $3,400. If you’re looking to just to re-upholster your car chairs, you’ll need to spend around $200 up to $750 per seat.

It is worth noting that how much you’ll spend for auto upholstery will depend on the material you’ll choose, the size of the area to be re-upholstered, and additional services you’ll get such as foam replacement or small aesthetic repairs.

Selecting the top providers of auto upholstery services in Winnipeg

For this article, we assessed the top auto upholstery service providers in Winnipeg based on these factors:

Upholstery service  – What types of upholstery materials does the company work on? Do they also offer upholstery repair services for cars and other vehicles?
Installer quality – Are the installers skilled and efficient? Is their workmanship worth highlighting?
Responsiveness – Is it easy to contact the company for quotes and other queries? If problems arise post-service, are the staff still available for contact?
Customer satisfaction – How is the customer experience? Are the clients willing to avail of services from the same company in the future?

What’s worth highlighting about Ron’s Custom Upholstery is that it’s an installer of Katzkin, which is currently the world’s largest manufacturer of tailored leather-trimmed interiors.

What we love about this product line is that clients can use the interior selector option to find the most tailored option for them. Another favourable point is that warranties for all Katzkin products last three years, which we think is decent.

That said, it’s worth noting that Katzkin doesn’t offer removable car seat covers. Clients will need to have their entire interior replaced if they want to push through with the product line’s leather upholstery services.

On a brighter note, we’re pleased that Ron’s does custom car seats made out of leather, vinyl, and polyester – perfect for those who want to make a statement, if you ask us.

We’re also pleased that these services aren’t limited to just cars as Ron’s is willing to re-upholster ATVs, bikes, boats, and other vehicles.

To get the best options, we recommend sending pictures of your vehicle so that the installers can assess which upholstery products will be most suitable.

On the downside, we’re slightly bummed that their quotations can sometimes miss the mark.

Some clients shared that they had to pay remarkably more than their initial quotes due to the installers’ miscalculations with how much material is needed to cover necessary areas.

While we recognise that quotes are not always the final figure, it wouldn’t hurt for them to improve their accuracy and consistency in making estimations.


  • Installer of premium Katzkin leather products
  • Also does upholstery for ATV, boats, and bikes
  • Offers free assessments and quote estimations via email and phone call


  • Katzkin line currently does not include removable car seat covers
  • Reports on quotes being inconsistent

Shear Perfection Upholstery is another company that works with Katzkin premium leather and ROBBINS auto tops.

It also offers cleaning and conditioning products suitable for its upholstery brands. 

We think that this is a plus as it will be more convenient for clients to get specific care products that won’t ruin their beautiful upholstery.

Leather might be the company’s flagship product, but we’re pleased to find that it also accommodates upholstery made of other fabrics.

We also have to give it to them in terms of its services as it also does custom car seats and interiors, as well as re-foaming and repairs for cracked and torn areas.

Shear Perfection Upholstery also earns additional points for offering same-day repair services, although you’ll have to call in and see if they can accommodate you on the day.

It’s worth mentioning, though, that some of the replacement parts the company sells are pricier than what others offer.

Apparently, some clients were charged $500 for small leather and original equipment manufacturer (OEM) replacements, which we think is quite steep since these typically only cost $200 to $350.

We were also bummed to hear that some of the staff weren’t that thorough in assessing car interiors. Some clients noted that they had to return to the shop to have their cars rechecked for the staff to redo the unsatisfactory upholstery work.

We hope Shear Perfection will look into these matters and work on their customer service.


  • Works with reputable brands
  • Offers cleaning products bespoke for its upholstery materials
  • Offers same-day repair services


  • Replacement parts can be overpriced
  • Some complaints on workmanship

Customer Reviews

Reliable for upholstery jobs for vintage cars

“I have a vintage vehicle that needed restoration. If the items were not perfect the first time, it will be the next. I have to say that the gentlemen who will do your work will go above and beyond to do what is required. They made sure that the parts that were restored fit the purpose that was intended. I very much enjoyed working with these people over a period of time who understand about waiting to obtain the parts needed to do the full restoration for an older model of car. Highly recommend.” – Barb Greiss

Excellent upholstery work for great prices

“These fellas upholstered the 2 piece back seat of my old car. They did a good job for a good price and were very nice to deal with. You can tell they enjoy the work they do, and it shows.” – Mark Draper

Upholstery isn’t just about aesthetics and matching your car’s exterior; it is also about long-term comfort and enjoying your ride. 

Thankfully, Guy Anthony Designs exists to provide customised ergonomic auto upholstery products.

A highlight of this company is that its namesake is the one who makes the upholstery services himself, which adds a nice personal touch to the service. 

While Guy Anthony’s previous works focused on motorbikes, ATVs, and snowmobiles, we think it’s a great foundation for what he currently does.

We’re quite pleased that with every seat re-upholster request, he explains what he’ll do to make the seats more comfortable and suited to the clients.

From what we’ve heard, clients are beyond satisfied with how he was able to make their reupholstered seats more suited to their frames. Apparently, some clients with chronic pain have even experienced reduced discomfort, which is impressive!

We also think it’s great that the final figure can reportedly go even lower than the initial quotation and that they can receive their orders earlier than expected – all while maintaining quality.

That said, note that Guy Anthony Designs’ services are limited to smaller upholstery work, such as repairs, custom covers, and bags.

If you want to have your whole car interior reupholstered, we suggest checking out the other shops in this article.


  • Specialises in handcrafted tailor-made upholstery
  • Turns uncomfortable seats into comfortable ones
  • Known for efficiency and accuracy in estimations


  • Mostly works on bikes and ATVs
  • Services are limited to smaller upholstery work

Customer Reviews

Highly recommended if you have issues with your factory seats

“The seat on my Scout was not comfortable for a ride longer than one hour. I contacted Guy and then visited him with my bike. He explained what he thought should be done and why and then quoted me a price. When I picked it up (after only three days) he charged me less than the original quote! The workmanship is beautiful – from the outside you can’t tell that he changed anything, but my first two-hour ride was the most comfortable I have been on my bike since I bought it. Highly recommend contacting Guy if you have issues with your factory bike seat.” – Oliver Albig

Guy made my 2017 V Strom seat rideable

“Amazing job – could not even tell that he refashioned it and raised it to make it actually comfortable to ride on.  I am very happy – and to boot he took $100 off the original quote because he said it took him less time than he thought.  That has never happened to me before.  Thanks Guy!” – K.

Ming Auto Beauty and Protection Centre is known for doing various repairs and detailing services on various vehicles, including upholstery maintenance.

We’re pleased to find that Ming’s services extend to different vehicles, especially classic car models. Apparently, the company does excellent repairs on old seats, headrests, and seatbelts of vintage cars. 

We also love how the company does treatments on vinyl, leather, and fabric upholstery surfaces to protect them from stains, moisture, cracking, and fading.

Plus points to this company as well for displaying the prices for its services on its website! 

To date, some are currently discounted, so we suggest checking them out to see if you can score a great deal.

Some of the services are also bundled, which we think are great for those who want to avail of more than one service.

It is worth noting that while the bundles include many services, most of them focus on exterior detailing and rust protection and not much on upholstery services.

Although we found one bundle that does upholstery treatments and cleaning, the package inclusions are quite limited and will cost $400 for small vehicles and $500 for SUVs, vans, and trucks.

That said, we still appreciate the company for offering gift cards intended for some of the services and bundles. 

It’s just a tad disappointing that Ming’s upholstery services are limited to repairs, treatments, and deep cleaning. You’ll need to enlist the help of other companies if you want a full interior revamp of your car.


  • Does upholstery services for different vehicles
  • Prices of services are displayed on the website
  • Offers gift cards


  • Upholstery services are limited to repairs and treatments
  • Pricey bundles for upholstery services

Customer Reviews

They did an absolutely amazing job

“My car looks phenomenal! My car was in horrible condition when I took it in to Ming. I have two dogs and transport dogs around in my vehicle regularly, so it needed a little TLC. I assumed I would get a car back that was cleaned okay and better than before. My car was covered in so much dog hair I did not expect a perfect job to be done. Boy was I surprised!! The entire car is spotless. I also used the shuttle service in the morning which was very convenient and very pleasant. I would absolutely recommend Ming to my friends and family!! I will definitely be going back!!” – Rhiannon K.

Love the treatments they offer to all vehicles.

“Had the new vehicle treatment done to my truck about a year &1/2 ago & was very pleased with it. I’ve gone back a few different times for couple different dent removals & touchs up due to some scratches & have always found their pricing very reasonable & the work excellent. They’re very upfront with you as to what they can do & what outcome you can expect, if they can’t make it look new again they don’t beat around the bush & will tell you what your their best results will be. The only complaint I’d really have is that they don’t offer ceramic coatings with their new vehicle package but do pretty much every step to prepare your vehicle for one. It’d be nice if they offered it for an extra charge with their package.” – MLike McPhee

Alfa Upholstery & Furniture might be new to the upholstery industry compared to the other entries here, but we’ve heard that they’re a hit with their clients – and that’s why we’ve included them here.

What we liked about this upholsterer is that it offers five-year warranties for labour, and varying warranty periods on its select foam products.

We checked its partner products and found that it supplies and works with foam and fabrics by JF, Ennis, Elite, Charlotte, Robert Allen, and Avent Garde. We think this is a great range that gives clients plenty of options, taste- and budget-wise.

Another advantage of this upholsterer is that it accommodates payments via cash and credit card, which is an added convenience to clients.

We’re just a bit bummed that Alfa currently only does custom upholstery covers, refoaming, and repairs for seats. As of writing, it currently doesn’t do upholstery work on dashboards and roof and door interiors.

One more downside is that the company also doesn’t service all vehicle types. To date, it currently only works on seating for cars, trailers, and boats.

Having said this, we recognise that this may be because they’re still relatively new and growing. Hopefully, they’ll expand their range of auto upholstery services in the future.


  • Two branches within Winnipeg
  • Offers 5-year warranties on labour
  • Select foam products have warranties
  • Accepts more than one payment method


  • Services are limited to custom covers and repairs
  • Does not service all vehicle types
  • Relatively new company

Project Detail, as the name suggests, pays close attention to detail. The subtleties are what make exceptional service. A decent detailing can change any automobile from simple transportation to an element of style, from the most powerful of luxury vehicles to your family’s dependable sedan.

The irony is that typical auto cleaning firms, in their quest to be the biggest game in town, lose sight of the single most crucial component, the details. It is simpler to focus on the apparent and the surface, but genuinely excellent service goes far deeper.

Because individuals who are enthusiastic about style and fanatical about perfection would never settle for mediocre, simple, or apparent, Project Detail was formed out of this irony. In just a matter of hours they can turn back time on your vehicle leaving you with a clean, dry, like new looking vehicle! 


  • Great attention to detail
  • Transparent rates
  • Experienced staff


  • Closed on weekends

Customer Reviews

Their attention to detail is amazing

“We have been taking our vehicles to Project Detail since they opened, to show support for a new local business. We have never looked back. Their attention to detail is amazing. When I got my new car, the first phone call was to Kevin to get it ceramic coated. Amazing!! They are very pleasant to work with and we highly recommend them without any reservations.” – Patrick Hiebert

Our car has never been this clean

“We are very happy with the service! Thanks Kevin for your hard work today. Would definitely recommend this place. Great job! Our car has never been this clean other than the day we bought it. We would definitely come back here. Kevin is so nice and very professional too.”  – Len Klippenstein
