seat covers that we want to use ourselves
WHY WE STARTED DINGO TRAILS
Covers that fit properly
DON’T MESS WITH OUR BABIES
We saw manufacturers take our beautiful designs and turn them into inferior products. Their covers don’t fit well from poor manufacturing control and tear easily because of cheap neoprene. Frankly, we are a little embarrassed by what’s out there. So we started this business to make seat covers we want to use ourselves.
As designers, we hate to see our “babies” turned into something inferior and want our designs to be more than what they are …
However, manufacturing in Australia is challenging with high production costs and a shortage of skilled labour. The automotive industry has also been decimated in recent years. As an Australian business, we understand that we are part of a global economy and must be competitive. It is essential to provide something unique.
A point of differentiation.
The X factor.
BE RECOGNISED FOR SUPERIOR DESIGN AND QUALITY
With a combined experience of over 40 years in the automotive industry, we absolutely love what we do and want to offer a superior product that is not currently offered by anyone else. We are building a premium brand for amazing designs, recognised for quality and acknowledged to be the best in the industry.
How do we do it? Read our Mission below.
Attention to quality.
Focus on customer service.
COMMITTED TO MAKING THE BEST SEAT COVERS
We are absolutely committed to making the best neoprene car seat covers for you. Not just style, but in quality, functionality as well as customer service. Never satisfied, we improve designs and tweak existing patterns. We are constantly dreaming up innovations and unique features that could be part of our seat covers.
FEATURES YOU DIDN’T KNOW YOU WANTED
Our designers are constantly innovating, adding features to our seat covers that you didn’t even know you wanted. In the past, these included console lid covers, zippered access for armrest as well as armrest covers. Recently, we’ve introduced a handy front driver pouch to store your wallet/ purse/ smartphone.
None of this matters unless the seat covers also fit like an Armani suit. Pivotal to this strategy is investing in advanced technology including CAD design software and the latest CNC router machinery. Dingo Trails seat covers are designed digitally and manufactured with the tightest tolerance for a precise fit.
Get into your car. Sit on a Dingo Trails seat cover. You’ll be rubbing your hand with glee!
MEET EXACTING STANDARDS
Made here in Melbourne we control every aspect of manufacturing. We start by inspecting neoprene rubber for colour, thickness, hand-feel and stains/creases. Before receipting into our warehouse, each seat cover is referenced against sewing maps and inspected for the minutiae of manufacturing defects including skipped stitches, stitch counts, missed components and stains/dirt.
If it doesn’t meet our stringent standards,
we won’t put it up for sale
DELIGHT EVERY CUSTOMER
Our company is founded on the principle of DELIGHTING CUSTOMERS above all else. It’s a little old-fashioned but we won’t compromise. We examine the entire purchasing experience from placing the order, receiving the package to using the covers. With a laser focus on customers, we review each step to eliminate delays, provide clarity and avoid disappointment.
We know we’re not perfect. Our customer care managers brain storm with the design, production and warehouse teams to incorporate lessons learnt. Following the Japanese philosophy of ‘Kaizen’, we continuously improve designs, tweak existing patterns and optimise manufacturing and fulfillment processes for the pursuit of excellence in a virtuous circle. That’s the ‘team’ in DT Team.
