A selection of classical & modern romantic music is available for you to enjoy or you can supply your own CDs or mp3 recordings.

WEDDING CHAUFFEUR SERVICES Our chauffeur service offers you the extra care and attention of a conscientious chauffeur at your service.

Choose the unique style of the lovely old Mk2 to take the bride & father to the church and then to take the bride and bridegroom from the church to the reception.

The Mk2 can transport the bridesmaids & bride's mother to the church earlier, time and distance permitting.

Earlier duties are often possible. For example, the bride & bridesmaids to be taken to the hairdressers. Also, you may like a service for the groom, bestman & ushers, as normally they should be at the church earlier to perform their official duties, although sometimes they head for the pub nearest to the church first! Other guests may need collecting from station, airport or hotel. Make them feel special; they will love it.

Advice on normal protocol is always offered for your safety and comfort & to make your day special.

Especially for you, a selection of classical and modern romantic music is available in your car and if you wish you can provide your own special tapes or CDs or mp3.

Fresh flower displays are included with wedding services at no extra cost. All the Jaguars have handsfree bluetooth telephone installations.

Vehicle Maintenance Policy In the past I have done quite a lot of the servicing of these old cars and understand their strengths and weaknesses really well having owned the 1960 Mk2 Jaguar since 1981. Our vehicles have been professionally maintained by a well respected local specialist garage, Snow and Stephens of Exeter. The vehicles include modifications especially chosen to improve reliability and parts are replaced and re-conditioned as required. All fluids, drive belts and tyres are checked before every booking and spare fluids are always carried. A spare fully charged battery with jump leads is normally carried.

Breakdown policy: Whilst every effort is made to maintain the reliability of these old cars, it is always possible that a car can breakdown for some unforseen reason. We always recommend that it is sensible to have a back up vehicle. If the wedding is local there may be time for us to provide one of our other vehicles. However, for longer distance from our base in Exeter we would always recommend booking more than one vehicle in which case that vehicle may be able to do extra journeys. If a vehicle does breakdown with no service to you then a refund will be given. If a partial service is given then a partial refund will be given for that part of the service we were unable to provide.

For your honeymoon departure leave the reception and arrive at the first hotel in the style and comfort of the classic "getaway car" of the sixties. If desired, the car may be adorned with streamers, balloons, trailing tin cans and, of course, old boots! Romantic music is available in the Jaguars on CD or you can supply your own favourite CDs or mp3 compilations.

Wedding car business for sale

The CLASSIC JAGUAR HIRE wedding cars and domain name are for sale.

These lovely old Jaguars turn heads and remain for ever popular. Family & other business commitments mean that I have not enough time available at the present to operate the wedding chauffeur cars service.

1960 Mk2 Jaguar The Classic Jaguar Hire domain name & the website.

I am pleased to offer my advice to help the new owner with the website and the operation of the wedding chauffeur service.

This domain gains page one on Google for Devon wedding cars and can easily be made to be page one on Google in other counties.
As part of the sale I will freely give support to make the changes to the website for the new owner. The domain name may be used for self drive classic Jaguar hire which had been a plan for the future and why I chose this domain name.
This website has consistently been responsible for most of my bookings making other ways of advertising seem rather expensive and unnecessary.
Scroll down on the page & check the website page view counter: you will see that the website really does get found as the figure is enormous!
Advertising on the website can be sold for extra income due the high number of page views.

Rare first year production model manufactured 1960
Cornish grey
3.4 litre XK engine
Kenlowe electronic thermostatically controlled radiator cooling fan.
This is the full size fan & the mechanical fan has been removed.
Auto gearbox
power steering rack which is belt driven
alternator running the electrics
interior in red connolly leather replaced & in excellent condition
modern radio with MP3 slot & 10 CD autochanger
bluetooth telephone
MOT can be renewed at the point of sale
I am just the 2nd owner in 52 years and I purchased the Mk2 in 1982

The car has some desirable modern upgrades which make it a joy to handle on today's congested roads.
The Mk2 has been converted to an alternators & can power halogen headlamps when the engine is idling. A modern stereo & radio is fitted which has enabled us to play romantic 60's music which is ever popular for the weddings & special occasions.
The conversion to a modern power steering rack transforms the handling to make the Mk2 easy to drive on today's congested roads.

My pricing policy for bookings:
£340 is normally the minimum price for one car operating locally.
If the booking is more than 4 hours from base to base or the mileage is high then I charge more than this minimum.
Special occasions have been booked out at £100 for the first hour & then £80 for further hours.
Income will depend entirely on the number of wedding dates booked. For example, if 40 weddings were booked per car at the current rate then income could be up to £27,200 plus further income from special occasions.

OFFERS are invited in the region of:

Mk2 £7,000
Classic Jaguar Hire domain name with website £2000 The website achieves Google page 1 for all relevant searches Purchase with the domain name/website is optional.

Please note that the Mk2 is not concours and the asking price reflects that it will benefit from some refurbishment in certain areas. However, the car does have very many strong points to consider and the wedding business funds maintainance and further refurbishment.

I am getting many booking enquiries; however, at present I am not taking bookings for 2012. There is great opportunity to base the wedding chauffeur service in North Devon where there is currently a shortage and I am often being asked to quote for this area even though I am Exeter based.

If interested please be sure to telephone Basil 07889 210041 to discuss further details and in particular the exact condition of the car as I have no intention of misleading.
I am selling so that I can spend more time with my wife, family, dogs and a new business commitment.
