Turn your passion for cars into a profitable career

Vintage and Classic Car Hire specialises in providing self-drive classic car hire experiences normally for day hire with customers taking to the open road from their chosen collection depot in the morning and returning their vehicle in the early evening. Optional picnic hampers or sandwiches and a flask of soup or coffee can be supplied making this a Covid friendly, self-contained day out at an affordable price.

A mixture of cars across the fleet will see customers returning to experience different vehicles and as the number of depots increases, different locations too….

The starter fleet for a franchisee will consist of an MG Midget, MGB GT and Roadster models plus a Morgan Roadster.

Affordable finance is available for these vehicles which will be supplied by us fully reconditioned and ready for hire. We can maintain these vehicles as an ongoing arrangement or source a local mechanic to follow the repair and maintenance regime. Full technical backup and training is provided.

A voucher system and centralised online booking system means pipeline business can be gauged by area and extra cars made available when required. A lot of time and investment has been spent on ensuring an intuitive and easy online voucher and booking system that starts the customer journey in a positive and professional manner.

This unique business model is similar only to the property market in that the assets that are rented are appreciating ones. What makes this attractive business totally unique however are two key points.

  • Firstly, classic cars have steadily grown in value over time and continue to do so. Your investment in your asset base will increase in value.
  • Secondly and most importantly, unlike property, where annual rental yields or ROI (return on investment) is considered good at 6 % and rarely exceeds 10%, the annual ROI on a classic car rental asset can be more than twenty times this amount making the numbers for this business model very attractive indeed.

It’s also very rewarding enabling your customers to have a really fun day out!

We are looking for six to eight pilot franchises to enjoy the pick of territories and a lower franchise fee in return for helping us build this brand that is already listed with the premier experience day providers and has an established marketing platform as well as a highly developed business system, insurance cover and available finance model.
