From Mr S Patel, North London, Wedding in July 2011

Fantastic car and service from Steve – the car was one of the highlights of my wedding for me and Steve provided a highly professional service at all time, all at a very reasonable price.  Viewing the car beforehand and discussing plans for the day was not a problem and Steve filled me with confidence with regard to his experience as a chauffeur and owner of this lovely vehicle.  I would definitely recommend Steve and the 300SEL 6.3 to others. - By email

Classic Mercedes Testimonial

From Mr A Patel from North London, Wedding in September 2011

In the foray of all things wedding preparation, wedding transport sometimes is and often overlooked. It is probably one of the most important things on the check list! This was an area I can say that my wife gave me the 100% choice to choose whatever I wanted. Great!

My search began looking into transport modes for my big day and I just found everything to be too cliché. Now, being a Mercedes enthusiast, in my mind it had to be nothing but a Merc so you can tell I was relieved when I came across Barratts classic Mercedes wedding car hire. I contacted Steve to organise a viewing and make the all important decision.

If I am honest, I was half sold from the moment I visited the site. It gave me and am sure you as well reading this the sense of the car’s history and that it is something very special. It has to be one of the best of not very many left examples out there. The time and effort gone into restoring this luxury Benz is remarkable. 40 odd years ago this was a top end motor vehicle for the very rich and the very famous. Technological advanced for its time, and yet it still doesn’t feel out of place in the era we find ourselves in of the electric car!

Needless to say this 1971 6.3 SEL looked even better in the flesh when the covers came off! For those who appreciate attention to detail this 1971 really hits the mark. From its carefully refurbished interior wood trimmings to the faultless paint and body work, it has a great road presence. Even when just standing. That long bonnet which hides the 6.3 litre engine looks absolutely stunning. Unleashing those horses made the hairs at the back of my neck stand up. Pure raw power incredibly smooth with its air suspension and as a passenger at the back, It’s exactly what you want. Takes road bumps and dips no problem. I can tell you that your attire will not be roughed up. You will arrive and leave your venue as fresh as you started in a car like this!

The car pays Steve a great credit too. The whole experience for a chauffeur driven vehicle in my opinion should be personal. This is the service that Steve provides. Purely as this SEL is his own pride and joy. That’s the difference. Once you meet Steve you will begin to understand that you just don’t get a ‘driver’ but an individual that is passionate about the car he owns and also at the job he does. For me personally it was also a credit for me too and proved to be a big hit on the day of the wedding and was taken in by the comments I received afterwards about this classic wedding car. It just proved that my selection was the right choice. The car was the star!. - By email

I would highly recommend anyone to use Barratts wedding car hire for their big day.

(I will for sure use them again in the future... Eeeekkk)!

Cheers! - By email

From Mrs S Jones, West Sussex, Wedding in July 2012

My surprise and delight to see the car when it arrived on the drive way, a real classic and obviously well cared for.

From Miss E Kelly, North London/Hertfordshire, Wedding in July 2012

Our experience with Barratts Classic Car Hire was a breeze from start to finish. Steve collected me and my father, and immediately with his gracious and relaxed demeanour put us at ease.

From Miss H Page, West London, Wedding in November 2012

I was looking for something a bit different for my wedding car and the moment I saw this beauty I knew it would fit the bill perfectly. The car is absolutely superb and immaculately restored (I'm a huge fan of old Mercedes), and was just the part for our London wedding. Steve was a pleasure to have as part of our day, he was excellent communicating beforehand answering my every query, perfectly timed on the day and very discreet and patient throughout. Thank you Steve!. - By email

From Mr N Cramp, West London, December 2012

Hi steve,just wanted to say thanks for yesterday. We both had a great time and the car was beautiful - would love to get out on the open road in it!. Hope your journey home was a bit easier. - By email

From Mr D Lawson, Leicestershire/Rutland, February 2013

Superb immaculate service from start to end. Steve arrives an hour early just to be sure which is always a good sign. If you want to turn heads on a special day and have a unique flawless experience then give Barrats a ring, the car draws a small crowd wherever it goes and slows traffic as people camne to have a look. The car looks like it's just rolled out of the showroom and makes everything else look lame. I can't wait untill I need him again. Keep up he good work!. - By email

From Mrs Weber Reed, North London, Wedding in April 2013

Hiring the classic Mercedes was one of the highlights of our wedding day. It complimented the vintage style of our day and made the perfect backdrop to many of our pictures. Steven was a joy to have as a chauffeur too and made us feel completely at ease. - By email

From Mr R Blackhurst, West London, Wedding in May 2013

Steve's vintage Mercedes is stylish and beautiful. It was a thrill to be in a car with such a rich history and sit in the seat where George Harrison and other rock legends have sat in the past. Steve was an excellent driver for the day - friendly, punctual and always on hand - despite having to contend with very strict parking regulations. - By email

From Miss C Doherty, East Sussex, Wedding in August 2013

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.

Thank you again Steve for playing such a brilliant role in our wedding day.
