About Us

Seat Shop Australia began in Townsville, North Queensland, in 2014 when Peter and Margret Wolland decided to expand upon their family business, a successful mechanical workshop of 40 plus years, and move into a more specialised service.  

Supplying new seats for all types of machinery, trucks and commercial vehicles in all leading brands, with installation and custom modifications available.  We also offer a large range of office seating including everyday chairs, executive, 24/7 use, reception and specialty chairs.  Stocking a wide selection of genuine OEM and aftermarket spare parts and accessories, we can help you keep your seats in top working condition.  All of our locations have workshop facilities with mechanics on hand to carry out any inspections or repairs you may need. 

At Seat Shop Australia our focus isn’t just to sell you the best quality, most comfortable, ergonomic and supportive seat for your needs but also to help you get the most out of your asset through comprehensive after sales service, warranty, repairs and rebuilds.

Our Locations

The heart of our operation is our Head Office in Townsville, North Queensland which holds our largest range of products and parts with new stock arriving regularly by the container load.  This branch is run by Peter and Margret Wolland and supported by their son, Flint, who has been doing seat repairs onsite since day one.  With over 50 years mechanical experience across a broad range of industries Pete can sort out anything you might need, from selecting the right replacement seat for your vehicle to troubleshooting faults or designing complex custom fit ups.  Pete is well versed with all of the current Australian Standards and design regulations so you can be sure that your vehicle seating modifications will be safe and road legal.

Our Proserpine branch (QLD), which opened in late 2019, is operated by Peter and Margret’s daughter Amanda.  A mechanic herself, she began her trade in 2007 as an apprentice Heavy Vehicle Mechanic at the family workshop and has since expanded her qualifications into Mobile Plant Mechanics and Cert IV Engineering – Welding courses.  Now living in the Whitsundays with her young family she is bringing our full range of knowledge and services to this regional area.  With a large array of new seats in stock and on display, plus a well-stocked parts room and workshop, she can keep your gear running with minimal downtime.

Our latest venture is Seat Shop WA, teaming up with Michael Davis we have opened our doors in Perth, Western Australia, as of early 2020.  Michael has over 20 years’ experience delivering solutions to the building, construction and earth moving industries. Our service department is managed by Murray Giura, with 25 years’ experience as a road transport mechanic.  Seat Shop WA strives to improve the level of customer service and price competition in the WA market.
