Our Early Establishment

Master Valet Dry Cleaners was proudly Established in 1983 and has been successfully serving the Canterbury region ever since. We are a family-owned business, having been run for 7 years before being passed down from Father to Son-in-law 6 years ago. The business saw its biggest challenge with the Christchurch Earthquakes, and after closing for just a few days, remained open throughout the recovery, providing a dependable service to the large number of rescue workers, police and volunteers that were on hand to help out Canterbury in its time of need.

Since its establishment Master Valet Dry Cleaners Christchurch has remained in the same location on Lincoln Road, and the building has become something of a landmark for the region. Originally the building was a police station, built specifically as the police station for the prison nearby. The prision was closed in 1983 and the police station sold, to become the dry cleaning business it is today. We are proud to be one of the earliest established dry cleaning businesses in Christchurch.
