Airport secure parking meet and greet services

With the quantity of ‘Meet and Greet’ parking services at UK airports on the rise, it can be difficult to make a positive choice. While you do leave your vehicle at an airport at your own risk, The British Parking Association provides a few handy hints to follow when selecting a service:

  • Is the member of staff that greets you wearing a uniform – and carrying an ID badge? If so, verify the badge – does it endorse the company you’re dealing with, in the location you’re at?
  • Are you doing business in a nominated setting – such as a stand at the airport or a position in airport? Not having a location is a sure fire hint that something isn’t quite right.
  • Make certain of where the company will be storing your car. Can they point out their storage facility? If it is off site, and they usually are, can they tell you where it is, or show you a picture? Does the company own the storage facility?
  • Make sure you get a real and correct receipt. Confirm that the receipt shows the company details – does the company name match, and is the address accurate?

Ardent Airport Parking ashamed of other so called secure meet and greet parking services
With so many ruined reputations of customers misused airport parking horror stories Ardent called a staff meeting – why? They aspired to intensify security and perfect customer services so that they don’t meet the same destiny.

Items they implemented immediately included

  • All employees are aged 25 and over
  • All employees have a full licence for longer than 12 months
  • Insurance stepped up to protect both parties
  • A full receipt is provided to the client showing all company details logo and contact details
  • Security cameras installed in prominent positions
  • Regular patrol of secure lock up facilities increased
  • Staff are CRB checked and were necessary hold valid taxi/private hire licences.

Because Ardent Airport Parking focused on these points their business increased for the Stansted Airport (STN). Throughout the summer holidays (Mid June, July, August, and 1st week of September) they were sold out and had to organize parking at an optional site to accommodate everyone.
Parking requests snowballed from about 50 per day to just about 300 a day all through this period.

Client’s comments are further proof of their services
What a gem! Flying from Stansted, these are easily the only people to trust. Paid £59 for 2 weeks parking plus received a incredible transfer service. After parking, we were taken to the airport terminal immediately and they were there waiting for us when we arrived back. Driver was v. polite and helpful. Service was outstanding; you’d be foolish to use anyone else.

We have used the parking services of several companies at 6 different airports and this was undoubtedly the best service and best value. Because it is significantly cheaper than the long stay car park at Stansted, I had worries that the service might be poor. However, the service received turned out to be much better than from the long stay car park.The directions sent with our online booking were awfully precise and we had no trouble finding the parking area (I do recommend taking the company’s directions with you and not relying on an internet map). The moment we got there we were driven to the airport straight away and then picked up as soon as we returned. The driver of the minibus was immensely helpful on both legs of the journeys. The complete route was effortless and we wasted no time at either end of the journey. Will definitely vouch for this company.
