Hancock Marine Services Ltd is almost certainly the largest specialist cleaning, valeting and re-proofing company handling work for the marine trade. Handling thousands of sails and covers the whole year round, through a network of agents, many of which are sailmakers.
Each item is carefully labelled and weighed on arrival. All our agents have a unique identifying letter. When you send in an item, we fix a label with this letter plus a serial to the item and bag if it has one. This ensures no item is lost or incorrectly bagged.
Whether washed or flat cleaned ALL sails are laid out and carefully inspected prior to hanging up to dry. Any remaining stains receive further treatment with the pressure washers.
Items are hung in purpose built drying rooms big enough to accommodate up to 180 sails at any one time. Large fans in the roof help to circulate warm air heating, which ensures perfect and complete drying.
At Hancock Marine Services you can be reassured that your items are in safe hands. Working with a team of well-trained staff who have many years experience between them in cleaning of such items. Even the dirtiest sail, cover or tent are not a problem
