Classic Car Hire Hull, Middlesbrough, York
We have launched an innovative new project to help people with autism learn new skills by valeting classic cars. The project is a collaboration between ourselves and the charity Autism Plus, and is based near Ampleforth, North Yorkshire. The pick-up point is ideally placed for classic car hire Hull, Middlesbrough and York. The beautiful North York Moors are within easy driving distance, or you can head to the picturesque Yorkshire Coast on your classic car experience.
The classic car scheme started in 2018 when we hired out a white convertible Morris Minor called ‘Betty’. Due to Betty’s popularity a second, maroon coloured Morris Minor saloon called ‘Sally’ was added to the Ampleforth fleet, followed by a bright blue Frogeye Sprite (often known as a Spridget) called ‘Bridget’. Both Betty and Bridget have featured on Celebrity Antiques Roadshow.
Simon Cale, Head of Enterprises at Autism Plus said, “Our base at Ampleforth has set up a range of projects such as a chocolate making factory and a horticultural project to support people with Autism, and we felt the classic car hire scheme would be another very exciting one to pursue. Not only does it bring in an income to the charity, but it supports people with Autism in their learning and development.”
The people with autism help to valet classic cars which are about to go out on hire, learning new skills which help them into employment.
The classic car hire fleet
At the moment we can offer a choice of Morris Minors and an Austin Healey Frogeye Sprite from our Ampleforth base. But if you want a different car we have two other bases, one in north Leeds and one in Keighley, near Skipton.
If you aren’t quite sure what make and model of car to choose you can you buy a gift voucher whereby the recipient can choose exactly what car they would like and when they’ll take the classic car hire. The voucher is valid for one year and is transferable between cars. So if someone would have rather had a different car, they can do. Or you could book a specific date and surprise them when they’re least expecting it!
Alternatively, you may be thinking of investing in a classic car such as a Morris Minor or Austin Healey Frogeye Sprite. Before you do so, you can hire one to make doubly sure it’s the right decision for you.

Whether you want a car for the groom, for the bride, or for your wedding getaway, we can advise on organising the hire.
