Magazine proves reliability of Great Escape cars

Great Escape Classic Car Hire recently submitted one of its white Morris Minor Convertibles for a trial by fire to demonstrate the reliability of its fleet.  

One of Classic Car Buyer magazine's classified advertising sales representatives exchanged her regular 2008 Fiat Punto for our Suffolk Morris for a week.  The trial involved her using the car as her regular wheels for a working week, including commuting and attending meetings.  The 1967 car passed the ordeal with flying colours - performing faultlessly without any major or minor hitches.

Although Classic Car Buyer's driver wasn't keen to swap the luxury of her modern car for the rudimentary conditions of the Morris on a long term basis, she was pleased with the attention it received and its reliability. 

Great Escape Classic Car Hire delivered the car to and from the magazine's offices in Peterborough.  To avoid charges of rigging we hired out the car subject to exactly the same checks we conduct for a regular hire.

"I am really pleased that a 40 year old car performed so well over such a gruelling challenge," said Graham Eason of Great Escape.  "Our cars are subject to a rigorous maintenance regime and cover 5 times the average mileage of most classic cars.  So high standards of reliability are important to avoid disappointing customers."

Great Escape Classic Car Hire operates the largest fleet of classic cars for hire in the UK, including a fleet of 5 Morris Minors.  The company has cars for hire in Yorkshire, Suffolk, Cotswolds, Shropshire and Lincolnshire.
