Carriage renovations

Who better understands the soul of a historic vehicle than... a brand whose history is an integral part of it? Devotion, patience, experience, but above all, passion for discovering a “dusty soul” make up the sum of the values necessary to resurrect life in a historic vehicle.

Renovation of old horse-drawn carriages for hobbyists, collectors, museums

The carriage renovation department remains under the personal supervision of the doyen of the family, Henryk Glinkowski. These are special orders from collectors and reputable museums from around the world who often want to remain anonymous.

We use the latest technology and raw materials to restore the construction elements of horse carriages, while ensuring that the character and stylization of the era from which a given carriage comes from is preserved. These projects often require the reproduction of missing or worn elements of the carriage to a degree that endangers the safety of the driver (read more Carriage reproductions. This extends the renovation period of such a carriage and makes the process itself more complicated.



Due to the complex nature of the carriages renovation, we work according to the following procedures:

STAGE I - Initial analysis
  • determining the client's needs
  • analysis of the provided source materials
  • consultations with external specialists (historians, enthusiasts, collectors)
  • determining the type of materials necessary for restoration of the horse carriage
  • determining the methods and technologies used in the restoration of the horse carriage
  • consultations on how to carry out the renovation with external specialists (historians, enthusiasts, collectors)
  • preparation of a report summarizing the renovation plan for the customer
  • consultation of the report and shipment of material samples to the customer
  • introducing possible changes to the renovation plan
  • final customer acceptance
STAGE II - Cost estimation
  • estimating the time necessary to perform the agreed scope of work
  • estimation of the overall project cost estimate
  • presenting the offer to the customer
  • negotiations and possible search for alternative solutions
  • placing an order by the customer
STAGE III / Production and documentation
  • starting the renovation of the horse carriage
  • photographic documentation of each element of the horse carriage
  • remote or personal approval by the client of the completion of key stages of the project
  • transport of the horse drawn carriage to the customer, preceded by sending the complete project documentation

In the area of carriage renovation, three generations of experience in the production of horse-drawn carriages and a passion for many months of restoring the old splendour of carriages are of key importance. The restored carriages constitute a confirmation of huge possibilities of the GLINKOWSKI brand in the field of carriage production not related to competitive horse riding. They build the reputation of our brand, yet the second life that we can give to carriages is the most crucial for us.

Horse carriage renovation services have been carried out for collectors, hobbyists and museums from around the world. We have implemented, among others, a carriage renovation project for the prestigious Colonial Williamsburg museum in the USA.
