Welcome to AS Pickering

A S Pickering is a family owned business which has been established for over 60 years.

Our experienced team have over 100 years working experience at Bradford based A S Pickering, all have served their apprentices here learning everything from vintage and modern car interior reupholstery to convertible soft-top restoration. Through the knowledge and skill of our craftsmen we have perfected the art of restoring vintage vehicles to their former glory, using traditional methods and materials.

We have worked on various cars over the years and seen many changes from Model T Ford to the earliest Rolls Royce’s from Morris minors to Daimlers. We have been featured in the practical classic magazine, and also were lucky enough to have been filmed by sky’s used car road show, which we are very proud of.

We have work on show in the Skopos motor museum in Batley, and the Keighley and worthvalley railway museum, also our work has been featured in the tv series heartbeat (Gina’s V W Beetle and Nick Berry’s MG).

Based in Bradford our vintage and modern car interior reupholsters can help restore any modern or classic car and our workshop is in easy reach of the Leeds and Halifax areas. From full convertible back plastic window soft-top/hood restoration to creating bespoke leather interiors AS Pickering’s craftsmen will provide a service second to none.
