Weathersby Guild Franchise Information:

Furniture Repair Franchise

The art of furniture repair and restoration presents a potentially rewarding business opportunity. The overall market place is extremely broad, with a variety of revenue sources including school systems, hotel chains, office parks and of course, the moving and transfer industry. The Weathersby Guild specializes in furniture repair and restoration for the moving and transfer damage claims industry, and presently serves most of the major carriers in the United States. The American Moving and Storage Association reports that one fourth of all moves result in claims for loss or damage. As a result, the Weathersby Guild is well poised to capitalize on correcting those damages.

To help our franchisees reach this specialized market, the Weathersby Guild offers several specific advantages:


For three generations, the Weathersby Guild has provided the highest level of quality and service to the field of furniture repair and restoration arts. Our reputation is unexcelled and our commitment to craftsmanship and service has become legendary in the industry.


A great challenge for any start-up business is developing new accounts. Over the years, the Weathersby Guild has cultivated and nurtured relationships with many of the industry's most recognized and respected names. Our franchise owners will have opportunities to enter market areas where established clients are already seeking our services.


The demands for quality repair and restoration in the moving and transfer damage claims industry require particular expertise that can only be attained through specialized training. Our 21-day training program is not a touch-up course. You will begin your adventure with the Weathersby Guild as a highly skilled craftsman and benefit from our ongoing mentoring program.

  • Franchisees enter our 21-day training course in Atlanta, Georgia as apprentices. They learn the art of furniture repair and restoration under the tutelage of master craftsmen, who provide on-the-job training through actual repair visits in the Atlanta area -but the training does not stop there. Through our on-going mentoring program, franchisees continue to grow and learn skills and techniques under the oversight of our master craftsmen. Over time, journeymen repairmen qualify to receive master craftsmen designations.
  • Because the Weathersby Guild specializes in servicing the household goods moving industry, our curriculum includes extensive instruction in damage claims handling procedures. Instructors are experienced claims adjusting professionals who provide thorough training in the best methods and approaches used by the moving and transfer damage claims industry.
  • Additional training and instruction is provided in the areas of interpersonal skills, information technology and marketing.
  • After graduation from the educational program, franchisees continue to be updated on methods, practices and techniques through trade-specific publications, forums and conferences.
