    Airport Parking at Gatwick

    I'm off on honeymoon for three weeks, and want somewhere safe and secure at Gatwick to leave the R8. I would really like one of those companies, that collect the car from you at the airport, and have it waiting for you at arrivals on your return. Would like car valeted too. Having looked on the web, I can see that there are plenty of companies that offer this, but can anyone recommend one?

    Thanks!

    I wouldn't trust anyone if I were you!

    They'll park it down a side street, rag the sheeite out of it and probably create more swirl marks than I care to imagine!

    Hmmm I'm not sure I'd trust them with a picture of an R8...

    I'd be leaving it at home and making alternative travel arrangements...Not that I have anything against airport parking companies but I doubt they have the time, resource or interest in looking after my cars as well as I would like.

    Agreed. Park it at home and get a National Express coach, or a a Taxi if you're an R8 driver

    my mate works for a parking firm at gatwick, he has often picked me up in customers cars and ragged the pants off it, you have an R8, be more like diesel a4 afterwards. seriously dont do it. and also if their carpark is full they park the cars usually down side roads in horley, charlwood, and some parts of crawley. hope this is of help mate.

    well i now know where gatwick parking company park their customers cars. right behind my work in salfords surrey, on an industrial estate. this fella roared right up in a mercedes amg ragging the ass off it , parked it, blipped the alarm then jumped in another car (bmw 5 series), cold engine and just speed off. i wouldnt even leave my car in my works car park overnight let alone have a car there for 1-2 weeks. these people need nameing and shameing, its not right that people pay money out for a service they are not given. you may as well leave your cars in my works car park. just as safe. not.

    You only really appreciate how retarded people are in this world when you log on to a forum and recoil in disgrace over their spelling. How are any of you actually employed?!
