We at Qualitysleep have used the services of SMA for the past 5 years. We have found Anthony and his team very professional and prompt to service all our sewing machine needs. Anthony understands our business and is our only point of call when one of our machine goes down. We have tried many other sewing machine mechanic prior to Anthony however SMA’s level of knowledge and ability to go the extra mile to get production up and running again ( day or night ) is priceless.

Sleepmaker_Bedding_LogoSewing Machines Australia have been in integral part of our operation here for nearly two years. During this time, their support, service and advice has been first rate. They have provided us with excellent break down support as well as preventative maintenance support for some time and I have found their reliability, speed and attention to detail to be excellent. They have provided efficient and cost effective solutions and I would have no hesitation in recommending them to others.

Sleepmaker in Wacol have been working with Sewing Machines Australia for some time now.  We find their service to be prompt, efficient and cost effective.

We have found that since we commenced a preventative maintenance program in conjunction with Anthony and his team our breakdown rate has reduced significantly.

We continue to work with Sewing Machines Australia and enjoy the benefits of their preventative maintenance program and quick response to breakdowns.

If you would like to discuss their service levels please feel free to contact me anytime.

I was in the process of looking to purchase a new quilter for my business, and heard through the grapevine about Sewing Machines Australia. I contacted Anthony who came to have a look at our quilter. Anthony repaired our Emco 9000 Quilter which no other company could fix.

Anthony’s honesty and integrity and knowledge on quilting machines saved me a lot of money. I find Anthony and the team at Sewing Machines Australia deliver prompt service. They are always eager to help and share their knowledge and are a pleasure to deal with.

I would recommend them to anyone.

Kind regards

In 1996 and working for one of largest membrane structure/shade sail companies in the world, we needed a reliable source to supply and maintain our sewing and cutting equipment as downtime was not an option for us.
It was at this time that I met Anthony Pascoe, and found his services to be second to none.
Service calls were always attended to immediately and on occasions they would even supply us an equivalent machine if ours needed to be taken away for repair so our production could keep rolling.
Anthony continued supplying and maintaining all our sewing machines and accessories during this 10 year period even through his own company (and continue to do so) and always with outstanding service, competitive pricing and excellent turnaround on service/maintenance calls.
Due to the large range of products available including sewing machines, cutting equipment, scissors, parts and accessories, Sewing Machines Aust became our one stop shop for all this equipment and along with the friendly nature of the team whether it was Anthony, Carol or one of the experienced service staff, they became a household name within our company.
I have now known and worked with Anthony for approximately 15 years and have recommended and commissioned Sewing Machines Aust to supply and maintain our sewing needs with all the companies I have worked for since his company started and continue to receive the level of service I have always been accustomed too.

Knowing Anthony for some 8 years has given me an in-depth insight to his character and work ethics. At no time (very rare) can i say that Anthony hasn't carried out his work 100% efficiency and thought processes for all parties. We have employed Anthony to consult for our company, as well as carry out repairs to mainstream machinery for our clients, and at times repairs to machinery that i would like to say is not within the mainstream with outstanding results for our clients.

On character and Trade i would recommend Anthony without hesitation.

 "16 months ago I purchased  a K6  sewing machine from Anthony at Sewing Machines Australia for the specific purpose of repairing horse rugs. I am more than impressed with the performance of this machine and its reliability. The K6 has performed over and above expectations  being a mobile sewing shop travelling throughout Qld and Northern NSW, the machine is constantly  loaded in and out of a trailer (7x5) and setup on site at various events virtually every weekend, this machine has done a lot of miles on rough roads and has shown no sign of letting me down. Many of the horse rugs I repair are dirty, some very dirty and once again the K6 just ploughs on through, I believe it is virtually unstoppable and would recommend one to anyone wishing to push machines to their limits. The service I have received from Sewing Machine Australia is second to none prompt and courteous even when I phone up about silly matters they are only too happy to oblige ."

Good afternoon Anthony,
Firstly thank you for flying down to Sydney and going through my Machine (RP5) very carefully on use and how to use it and avoid expensive repair bills.

The repair work was carried as per plan without any hindrance due to Anthony’s experience with the Machines and parts on the Standby if required; as there were number Sewing Mechanics attempted to repair the machine and failed.

I am more than satisfied with backup and after service form Sewing Machine Australia. This interaction has given me the confidence in dealing with Anthony and his company. HIGHLY reputable and recommended in repairing Buraschi Machines.

Thank you again.

Hi Anthony,

Just wanted to let you know I was very pleased with the effort and ability that Jake shows, not only in his manner towards his job but also in his ability to deal with the prisoners. His conduct and behaviour towards his job and the prisoners was well appreciated by myself and also the trade instructor in the textile shop.

There are many books written about customer service and customer care these days and much written about the 'voice of customer' and how important this voice is for a good relationship between service provider and their customers.

Here in Cook Medical in Brisbane we are so fortunate to not only hear about those theories, but to have found in a partner who is demonstrating the excellence of customer service by living it: Sewing Machines Australia.

It was by far the best decision we have done when we have decided to ask SMA to take care of our Sewing Department in our Stents Production. With SMA we do not only have a knowledgeable and trustworthy service provider, but we have gotten the whole package including spare parts provision, technical service and advice as well as training and advice for the production staff.

SMA has taken a kind of ownership of our sewing machines that is from great benefit for our production and thanks to the excellent service from Anthony and his team did down time decrease and machine reliability and staff awareness increase.

Kind Regards
