"Best so far, I've used valet parking at Gatwick perhaps 20 times, Cophall was there when I arrived and when I got back, the plane landed at South rather than North Terminal, no problem, Cophall switched to South, fantastic!"

"Great service - both pick up and delivery on time."

"The arrangement worked well. I phoned the company as directed about 20 minutes before arrival at North terminal. Pickup driver turned up just after I had removed my case from the car; inspected the car, noted mileage and warned me to expect the mileage to increase by about 8 miles during Cophall's custody of the vehicle - a good thought that other providers don't usually bother with.

On return, it took 19 minutes from phoning the control desk to the car arriving at the pickup point, which was just about acceptable, particularly as with this provider the collection point is under cover in Car Park 6.

Both drivers were professional and courteous.

Only slight niggle: the company's automated phone system expects one to enter 1 or 2 to select the appropriate desk. With my phone, to get a 1 it is necessary to enter Alt+1, which the system does not recognise. It therefore took a while to actually get through to speak to anyone."
