My Father Adrian (Founder and fitter for the business) began fitting carpets in 1973 with a company named Luckings Contracts and has fitted carpets across the globe in places such as Portugal, Ireland and the South of France.
Adrian set up the first branch of the business back in 1987 named Mainline Carpets located in a small town named Alresford, the reason for the name is because the branch is located next to a main line railway track and Adrian also has a passion for trains so the name seemed appropriate.
The business has thrived for over 25 years and Adrian decided to take a new approach by opening a second shop in 2010 which he named mainline express because the aim of this second shop was to offer a same day swift delivery and fitting service.
Obviously Adrian cannot be out fitting and run the shops at the same time so the staff that run these shops include Vanessa who manages the order shop at Alresford so if you are looking for any top name brands such as Axminster, Brintons, Penthouse, Manx etc she will be the lady to see.
The remnant shop is managed by myself (Adrians son, Ryan) during the week and my brother Luke who covers the Saturday shift so you can always expect a friendly greeting when you arrive at either of our shops.
