About Us


Got It Covered has been in business since 2004, six of these when Joe Bray initially started out, working from home part-time and in 2011 he set up his workshop bringing on two other members into the staff as the business grew. Between them the team has more than 60 years’ experience in automotive trimming and upholstery.

Joe has been a qualified trimmer for more than 20 years. He completed his apprenticeship as an Automotive Trimmer and crafted his upholstery skills during this time. His previous experience included five years at Normanby Upholstery, seven years for Dobson Trim & Canvas Ltd, along with a few highlights including some time at Fitzroy Yachts producing quality and precision services, as well as time on Maui A recovering lounge chairs.
Joe enjoys problem solving and dealing with the public. He prefers working with one off jobs, starting from nothing such as old vehicle restorations.

Bevan has been a qualified upholsterer for more than 20 years. He has an in depth background in upholstery and has had his own upholstery business for 7 years before returning to Taranaki to raise his young family. His experience is invaluable to the business as he brings a new set of skills which includes traditional upholstery (Coil springs ,flax fibre, wadding and French polishing) to the team at which he learnt at Kelly’s Upholstery and finishing at Blanchetts Fine Furniture.  

The pair are joined by their fully qualified upholsterer Nathan who’s been on deck since 2010 and done his time (apprenticeship) at Got It Covered. Nathan is a hard worker who shows a flair and passion for pvc work. This includes but is not limited to sun shades, awnings, ute covers and car interiors. He too enjoys a challenge and has been a huge asset to the business with his customer relations skills and dedication to his trade.
