Behind The Scenes

The journey of a Hatchbag boot liner.

Today we want to show you what happens between clicking “Place Order” and the parcel arriving on your doorstep.

Here at the Hatchbag Company, everything is made in-house. So from the moment an order arrives in our online shop our team takes over.

printed order check

As our boot liners are tailored to fit your car model exactly, we sometimes will ask you very specific questions during the ordering process on our website. We check that your order has all the information we need, and we will contact you in case there are any unanswered questions. Our Customer Service team will help you if you need any more help with the configuration or are unsure about the specifics of your car model.

Once we have all the information we need, production begins. Your selected colour material will be cut by a state-of-the-art cutting machine and then hand-marked by the cutter. This is a unique identifier for your personal order.

How many pieces make up a bootliner?

It differs from car to car, model to model. But here is an example of what a bootliner looks like when the cutter is done with it.

It is then handed to our high-frequency welders, who weld the first batch of hook and loop fastener strips onto your boot liner.

Yes, you can weld fabric, too!

Once the smaller hook and loop fastener tabs are safely welded onto the PVC, the individual loose parts of the cut-out material move into our sewing room. Our team of highly skilled sewing machinists will then sew all the prep work like darts and long strips of hook and loop fasteners into the boot liner. Darts make sure the boot liner will fit into all the recesses in your car and will hug the edges tightly. The long strips of hook and loop fastener are your attachment points for extras like Bootliner Extension or Bumper Flap. No robots involved!

Once the prep work is complete, straps for the headrests and our logo are inserted.

From here the boot liner moves on to the next team.

All the various pieces that make up the boot liner are assembled into the main product, your boot liner is finally talking its final form. Every piece is sewn into place and all is secured with a black border around all of the outside. This is called TAPING and gives the edges of the liner and all our extras like bumper flaps and tailgate cover a nice, clean finish.

Your liner is finished, so now it gets teamed up with the correct tabs and strips of hook and loop fasteners so you can attach your boot liner securely to your car.

Every car is individual, so our logistics team will personalise your fitting kit before your order gets packed for shipping. Some cars need more fasteners than others, some don’t need any at all, so we take care in putting together the correct tabs and strips for your fitting requirements.

All that’s left to do now is ship your order out. Our courier collects daily and has a Next Day mandate within the UK, so your order is normally with you the day after it has left our sewing room.

If you are in Europe and USA, we aim to deliver your order within 6 to 8 days after it was placed.

Hatchbag featured in Auto Express

The Hatchbag Company have recently appeared online as part of a review by Auto Express who were in search of the Best of Boot liners.  10 boot liners were put to the test to see which provided the most protection and coverage for spills aswell as impact protection.

Hatchbag - Featured In Auto Express

Range of Coloured Boot liners

Within the review, we were acknowledged for having a large range of colours and optional extras available for the boot liners and how they cover the boot but also the rear seats and side panels.  There is also mention of some optional extras that we offer that allow the boot liner to cover the top of the rear seats and the rear door. They also sampled our Rubber Mat which they mentioned provides great impact protection.

Top 3 Boot liner

The verdict was revealed as we were named as the third best car boot liner… it’s only onwards and upwards from here! Read our boot liner review on Auto Express .

Welcome to The Hatchbag Company

There are some excellent new features on the site including an improved quick search function, a new ‘clearance’ section for great bargains, new mobile site and demonstration videos to show you just how easy it is to use your hatchbag.  Find out more about our new Hatchbag Blog...

Welcome to Hatchbag

Behind the new look website, The Hatchbag  Company continues to produce the same high quality boot liners, pet mats and odour control mats that our customers have come to know and love.

While Hatchbag boot liners are ideal for dog owners who have to transport their pets around even when they are wet, muddy and a little bit smelly, they are also suitable for anyone who has to use their car boot to carry sports equipment, household rubbish, tools, baby prams and pushchairs, gardening equipment or anything else that could mark or damage your car boot.

A Hatchbag boot liner can help to keep your car in showroom condition by lining and protecting the base and sides of your boot.  There are over 400 different models and come in a range of colours. They are made with a tough, wipe clean finish and easy fitting velcro straps.

For further protection and for extra comfort for your four-legged friend, Hatchbag also offers extra mats to sit on top of the liner on your boot floor. The odour control mats are ideal for dogs whose smell tends to linger, the Hatchbed offers your canine companion a cosseting ride and the rubber mats provide all round protection.

We pride ourselves on great customer service so if your car could use a boot liner, don't hesitate to contact our friendly and helpful team for more information and check out some of the customer reviews on our website to show you just how useful a Hatchbag boot liner could be! Enjoy our new site and welcome to The Hatchbag Company.
