Frequently Asked Questions
Do you have a classic or vintage car that you'd like to hire out to others for events and assignments such as weddings, photo shoots or film productions? If so, we're the place to make it happen.

For the individual with an exciting vehicle
If you're keen for your classic vehicle to be used in exciting events or assignments, you’ve come to the right place. BookAclassic has delivered classic vehicles to a host of film and commercial productions, and in the process has provided vehicle owners with memorable and fun experiences, not to mention a bit of extra cash in the bank. We register exclusive and exotic cars for weddings, parties and special exhibitions as well as motorcycles and scooters for retail showrooms. The possibilities are endless!
Supplier of vehicles for films, music videos and advertisments
We supply vehicles for the film industry, events companies and photographers across the country. BookAclassic has arranged exclusive vehicles for several films, music videos and advertisments where the vehicle owners have enjoyed a great experience and benefitted financially in the process.
BookAclassic is continuously looking for professional limousine companies across Britain who wish to exploit the capacity of their car fleet to the maximum. We receive many enquiries relating to business, VIP transport and wedding car hire for which your limousine service would be ideally suited. Our aim is to work in partnership with all the established limousine and bus companies across Britain. It is completely free to register vehicles on BookAclassic.
Vehicles without registration plates
Vehicles that haven't been registered or insured to drive on the road may also be registered on BookAclassic. Such vehicles can be hired for purely cosmetic purposes for photo shoots, exhibitions, shop decorations and as eye catchers at fairs. They can also be rented for driving on private roads closed to the general public. For purposes such as this we welcome any vehicle that has a unique character or special appearance, even though it may not be in optimal condition.
Every enquiry comes directly through us and your vehicle remains strictly anonymous on our website. When you accept an assignment we take care of all the details. The customer pays a booking fee to confirm their commitment, which also acts as our commission. Once we’ve completed the arrangements you can liaise directly with the customer to confirm the booking and any further details.
You must be the owner of a vintage car or other classic vehicle which is at least 25 years old. We also gladly accept limousines, modern luxury cars or other vehicles under 25 years old with a special or exotic appearance. Assuming the vehicle is to be used for driving purposes, it must be in good condition and both fully registered and insured. It must also have undergone a recent MOT and service demonstrating that it has no significant defects or malfunctions.
Many vehicles aren't suitable for driving during the winter. When registering you can define the period for which the vehicle is available.
The overall payment is calculated by applying the hourly rate on your BookAclassic profile from the time at which the vehicle leaves the garage to the time it returns. BookAclassic guarantees a minimum payment for 2 hours even if the trip takes less time than that. You can set up your vehicle to be priced by the hour or half hour after the mandatory initial 2 hour period (the default is per half hour).
BookAclassic deduct a commission of up to 30% from the total booking price. Around 50 to 70% of this commission will be used towards advertising your vehicle.
BookAclassic passes on customer contact information and assignments to vehicle owners. Our system will contact you by email or text message when a booking of your vehicle has been completed and paid for. The booking fee acts as our commission and confirms the customer's commitment to booking your vehicle.
Once we have received the booking fee we deliver all customer information to you, at which point we ask that you contact the customer immediately to confirm all necessary details and the deadline for completing the outstanding payment. Should there be any discrepancies or questions, BookAclassic is here to help.
When a customer wants to book your vehicle you'll receive an email and text message with information about the assignment. If you want to accept it, you’ll need to reply within 24 hours. After 24 hours our system will automatically try to identify an alternative vehicle for the customer.
Can you say ‘No thanks’?
The short answer is 'Yes'. When a customer wants to book your vehicle, you'll receive an email and text message with information about the assignment. It is entirely up to you which assignments you accept but it's important that you reply as soon as possible so that the customer isn't encouraged to start looking for an alternative vehicle. If you accept the assignment it will be binding.
When you register your vehicle with BookAclassic we require contact information such as your name, address, email and telephone number. This information is for internal use only and will not be forwarded to others. BookAclassic doesn't reveal the vehicle's identity and will not disclose the registration number or parking details to any interested parties. The only information that will be displayed on our site is the age of the vehicle and the city/county to which it is registered in order to protect the owner's privacy and prevent theft.
If your classic car doesn't have seat belts on every seat, this information must be disclosed on the vehicle profile. If children are to be transported in the car, they must be securely strapped in. According to law, children under 3 may not be taken in a car without seat belts. In vehicles with seat belts, children under 3 years are to be securely strapped in a child seat. Older children up to 135 cm are not allowed in the front passenger seat and must be strapped securely.
Arrive in good time at the agreed address and show off your vehicle at its best. The vehicle should be thoroughly cleaned beforehand, both inside and out. It’s important to contact the customer in advance to confirm details such as pick-up time and expected travel time. You should also confirm any expectations relating to dress/uniform and decoration of the vehicle.
Inspecting the vehicle
It's a good idea to give the customer the opportunity to inspect the vehicle before the assignment where they can view documentation such as insurance, registration of the vehicle, MOT and so forth.
What if the vehicle fails?
If your vehicle is inoperative or needs unexpected repair on the day of the assignment, you should immediately inform both the customer and BookAclassic. We then have the opportunity to help the customer to find another vehicle. You can also offer the customer an alternative solution if you're in a position to do so. However, if the offer isn't to the customer's satisfaction, they have the right to cancel their order. If the assignment has already been paid for, the payment shall be refunded to the customer.
If you fail to show up for an assignment without advance warning or good reason, your vehicle will be removed immediately from our website. You must also refund any payments you have received as quickly as possible.
