Great service

Very professional service and the drivers were so friendly and courteous. I travelled with my dad and the rest of the bridal party had a six seater which were both clean, comfortable and spacious. Would definitely recommend this service

Couldn't recommend anyone better.

James, our driver, was extremely accomodating and flexible. Leading up to the event he was quick to respond and supportive to our needs. He did a wonderful job and even went to the effort of dressing up for the part as the bridesmaids chauffeur. I could not recommend him high enough. Should another wedding or event come up, James would be our first choice.

Absolutely Superb.
James arrived prompt, on time and was very professional in his attitude and his driving to the venue. I was a nervous wreck on the way to my wedding but he was brilliant from start to finish.
I'd recommend him to anyone!
Many Thanks 😊

Wedding Cars

Absolutely amazing. James dealt with everything, talked through our arrangements, advised on best way to plan pickups and drop offs. Contacted me nearer the day to verify everything. On the day rang me when they arrived, rang to say that they were on route for the second pickup. Then picking up the bride and father, the driver was so good she was a little early so they stayed in the car until all was ready. I cannot fault the service I received. Would highly recommend.

Calm, courteous and extremely professional

From our initial booking enquiry right through to the final car trip on our big day the service was without fault. The organisation of the different pick-ups and drop-offs was slick, the cars were pristine and the drivers, James and Gibson, were calm, courteous and extremely professional. We cannot recommend this company highly enough.

Excellent professional & friendly service

I just want to say a big thank you to Rickerby Wedding Cars for the wonderful service they provided on our wedding day. We were worried about the logistics of hoping from one location to another given we had some tight time constraints getting from the Registry Office to the Wedding Reception during rush hour, manoeuvring the wedding party & elderly parents with wheelchairs/zimmer frames. I am so glad we contacted Rickerby Cars because they totally took the stress out of the occasion, James the manager really took on board all our requirements and we booked the Mercedes Benz S-Class saloon and the Mercedes Benz V-Class Mpv for our wedding day. The cars arrived on time, were spotlessly clean and dressed with ribbons for the occasion and looked really smart. I would like to thank Barry and Paul two wonderful chauffeurs who were really charming and friendly and always ready to lend a helping hand throughout. It was one less thing for us to worry about and I was so impressed with there professionalism, I would highly recommend Rickerby Wedding Cars.

We recently used Rickerby cars for our wedding. We hired the 7 seater Mercedes to collect the groomsmen and then again for the bridesmaids. James was excellent, very flexible and responsive. The cars were very clean and the service was professional. Thanks!

“Your satisfaction is their reward”

Fantastic team,Barry and Gibson were on time with lovely clean vehicles, they looked after our every need.
It’s important that the success of any wedding day is determined by the presentation of vehicles and staff.

I would highly recommend Rickerby chauffeur cars.
Well done to James and the team.

AMAZING and professional service!

Both James and Barry were absolutely fantastic on the day with ensuring ourselves and all of our guests arrived at the Church on time! The advanced planning and advice from James on timings was a great help with planning our big day - no question was a problem. Emails were replied to in lightening fast time and in a very professional manner. Every single guest commented on how professional James and Barry were on the day and how they made all of our guests feel very special - "absolute gentlemen" was a common comment from our guests! The company's cars were very classy, spotlessly clean and beautifully dressed for our wedding. Our decision to use Rickerby Cars was one of our best!
