I dont expect any tradesmen to work for nothing (Plumbing/Heating Myself) but this sounded a bit much. Was thinking about having a go at it myself
Can you send a picture of your armchairs. Maybe is not that hard to do it. I'm working with a furniture at hotel and sometimes hotel sending our furniture away to upholstery companies and the price the guys quote you is reasonable.
The problem with a furniture is that they stapled with a 1000 staples and need to remove them.
Like as I said maybe is not that bad..
Give a try your self. Should be good experience for you self
