  • "Fantastic"
    This testimonial was entered by Barratts Classic Car Hire on 10 July 2019

    The car and the service provided by Steve was fantastic. In the run up to the wedding Steve was easy to communicate with, answering our questions quickly and clearly. On the day itself everything went very smoothly and Steve acted as a cool, calm, collected and very friendly chauffeur. The Mercedes looked spectacular and many guests commented on the car. Thank you again Steve for playing such a brilliant role in our wedding day. - Tom and Chloe

  • "No hesitation in recommending"
    Chris . B on 17 June 2019

    Stephen Barratt supplied his fine classic Mercedes (and drove) for my daughters wedding in June 2019. He was responsive, reliable, professional, and prompt. The car was really well received by all and very well turned out. I have no hesitation in recommending this service.
