A prestige car hire company says it has seen a huge spike in bookings since ‘Freedom Day’ was announced.
The Blackburn based company said the past year had been difficult for all in the wedding and hospitality sector but June and July had looked a lot more promising.
One SV Solutions provides chauffeur driven Rolls Royce’s and high-end vehicles for special occasions and executive travel.
Aroon from the company said: “It was really difficult during the past few months as we did not know what was going to happen.
“People were booking for weddings in June and July but ever since it was confirmed there would be no social distance rules from July 19 we have had many more enquiries.
“Weddings remain our biggest business but people are also ringing us to provide cars for some proms. Other times proms have been cancelled by class-mates want to book a car to have a meal at a restaurant so they can arrive in style.
“It is so relieving to be able to give people an answer and a definite date.”
Among the vehicles on offer are a Rolls Royce Phantom, Range Rovers and Mercedes.
“People still want to splash out post-lockdown and there is real pent up demand for weddings. Many venues are hosting two weddings a day.”
The company said it had a thorough Covid-19 policy and would continue to ensure all cars were cleaned as they were before July 19.
“In terms of cleaning nothing changes. We want customers to be assured once they book with us. I think many other companies will be doing the same thing and continuing to keep to the same measures as before. It makes sense.”
