The Herdman Family Carpet Shop: It’s a Family Affair

Martin Herdman

Investing in new carpet or flooring? Whether you know an Axminster from a Saxony, the Herdmans will give excellent personal service

When Martin Herdman says that his carpet business is family owned and operated, he means it. Established in 1987 on Crown Road, St Margarets (the showroom moved from No 24 to No 35 in 2006), it is run by three generations: there’s Martin Snr, his brother Stuart and sister Sarah, Martin’s sons Jake, Josh, Martin Jnr and Luke and Martin Jnr’s sons, Harry and Martin III.

So, the inevitable question: how do they get along? Martin smiles: ‘Like any family, we have the odd drama. But we’re honest with each other, and that works well. Also, when a customer comes to us – whether for advice in the showroom, to get an estimate or to have a carpet fitted – they’ll always deal with a family member. We never use sub-contractors, everything is done by one of us.’

The Herdmans are an interesting bunch. A carpet fitter by trade, Martin is an ex-professional Rugby League player and also an actor with credits in TV and stage productions. Son Josh has followed in his footsteps by appearing in the Harry Potter films while Jake is a former Royal Marine commando.

What the family shares is a passion for the business and a pride in their professionalism. ‘Anything that goes on the floor, whatever the style or budget, we can do it,’ explains Martin. ‘We supply and fit all carpets and natural flooring, every type of hard floor, vinyl, linoleum, Karndean, laminate, bamboo, you name it…

‘We also provide a shop-athome service for the elderly, lift and dispose of old flooring and move and replace furniture. We carry out sub-floor work, repair floorboards, sand and varnish, trim doors and we’re happy to disconnect and reconnect kitchen equipment.’

Personal service is the watchword for the Herdmans. ‘We’re members of the Guild of Master Craftsmen and proud of our reputation for being friendly and reliable,’ says Martin. ‘With us, you can have complete peace of mind that the job will be done properly from start to finish by a family member.’
