/ Tent repairs
I've got a big 6 man vango tent that I've had for a few years and the front zip has given up. The whole tent probably doesnt have loads of life left, but I think it's still worth fixing at the moment. Does anyone have a recommendation for a tent repairer in SW London?
Thanks David. The only problem is that the tent weighs 25kg so not that easy to post!
Do you think the usage of the tent you have had is fair for the zip to fail?
If not I would contact Vango (Which may not be fruitful but in my experience is always worth trying)
Here's some info on the law in this area.
If you can find a good normal seamstress they may be able to do it as it's not that different to changing a zip on a jacket. you could then seal or tape the seam yourself afterwards although this isn't always necessary.
I may do that. I found a place online that does repairs nearby, but based on his quote of £5.50/ft +VAT I reckon it'll be around £50, which is probably quite a chunk of what the tent is worth. Seamstress seems like a good call - I'll look into it.
If possible, just cover it inside with some good old duct tape / gaffer tape and leave it as it is
Also, I don't think that £5.50 is that expensive, depending on the zip size/type. They aren't cheap for good quality, heavy duty zips.
