"Expect the 20 minute drive may be alittle more in rush hour but can't fault the service"October 18, 2016
"All aspects of the long term parking were efficient, reasonable and punctual."October 13, 2016
"Excellent service. Very impressed."September 24, 2016
"Unfortunately my car was returned by Purple Parking with damage to the bodywork. They admitted liability as there driver was driving the car at the time. However getting Purple Parking and there insurance company to approve the repairs is next to impossible."September 21, 2016
"Both departure and return took over 30 minutes."September 19, 2016
"Terrible, phone to say we had landed at 9.04, the bus waiting too small to collect everyone, finally got in my car to drive home at 10.30."September 18, 2016
"Absolutely lovely - just expected that the buses would take passengers on and off continuously as they go around rather than waiting for a particular vehicle but other than that it was excellent.
It would be good if everyone could support the staff better, especially the drivers, as they really are the faces that people see and interact with and it is very hard for them to keep cheerful all day long whilst driving round and round the same route with tired, irritable passengers to contend with.
Best of luck with the enterprise - keep doing well and thanks for keeping my vehicle safe whilst I was away!"
"All a good service, the driver on the collection from the airport was an aggressive driver."September 13, 2016
"Very efficient. No waiting for coach on both journeys. It is some distance from Heathrow so you need to allow time for that."September 5, 2016
"We booked Purple Parking for 15 days in July 2016 when we went to Canada. I had read several poor reviews, but for 7.50 pounds per day seemed worth a try. I am pleased to report that our experience was excellent. Clear instructions for drop-off at Terminal 2, loads of photographs taken by PP when we dropped car off to document its condition. (I had taken the precaution of photographing my odometer). Car was waiting for us when we returned. Polite and well-organized. We will use them again."August 15, 2016
"Having telephoned Purple Parking at 1.30 pm it was not until 2.30 pm for the bus t arrive. The driver wanted to wait for another flight but passengers insisted he drove to car park. It was 3.15 before I was on my way from the car park nearly 2 hrs after landing. I would not recommend this to anyone"August 13, 2016
"Thanks to all the staff at purple parking Heathrow for their super service."July 31, 2016

"Excellent service, the day before we were due to return I phoned to book meet and greet not a problem. All the staff seem to know what they are doing."April 13, 2016
"Big delays waiting and from bad traffic traffic which your transfer time estimates didn't really allow for
And on the way back our driver stopped for 5 minutes to collect an Indian takeaway"
"Last weekend was when storm Katy caused most Gatwick arrivals to divert at the last minute. We ended up in Stansted and got the bus back to Gatwick Purple parking, some hours later than expected, at around 4:30am. PP charged us for the extra time, only a tenner but what a nasty little mercenary act. The service was no more or less than expected, but the spite of it was a surprise."March 30, 2016
"Do Not recommend this service! Don't use them! Their open parking takes 40 minutes from Heathrow Terminal 5 -
The open parking lot is near the train tracks in Southall, UB2 5LE! Difficult to drive to.
The company post large signs at the lot - "Please remove any loose items including Sat. Nav.s, money, sunglasses etc. WE CANNOT VERIFY THEY WERE LEFT IN YOUR VEHICLE". Really? Sunglasses could be taken? Roads are rough with loads of pot holes, their staff are in the road repairing upon arrival. The vans used are old and tow a small trailer used to carry luggage. This service is bad & stressful!"
"DO NOT USE. Car park is miles away from airport and very difficult to find. Shuttle busses run very infrequently and drivers are rude."March 18, 2016
"Returned from 6 weeks abroad and collected car at 0530 in the dark. I should have checked more thoroughly then (according to the small print) but we were bitterly cold and tired, threw our cases into the boot and drove off as we were late for our crossing to France. Something immediately looked strange, as the heating had been turned to 28c and the fans were blowing on full. As we arrived in France and searched for the map all became clear. The back seat was extremely wet, and the floor in the back running in liquid (we presume water) – two maps left on the back floor were ruined and had to be thrown away. Clearly someone knew the back of the car had been soaked and was trying to cover it up with the heater though we did not realise this when we collected the car.
We also found that the car had been used by this company while we had been away. We complained about this when we wrote and they confirmed the mileage at the point of return. This was 85 miles more than our mileage noted when we handed the car in. As we did not spot and report these problems at the instant we collected the car the company will not consider our complaint. You have been warned – this is not a company to trust with your car."
"I have been using Purple Parking for many years mainly because of the competitive pricing. However, the standard of service has continually declined. Staff are often offhand or just plain rude. Several times recently I have had to load and unload my own luggage into the trailor. On my last visit I was told to leave the waiting room and wait on the bus while the drivers had a chat."March 12, 2016
"The level of car parking service I paid for was not the level of service I received.
When I arrived back at Terminal 3 on 15th Feb. My car was not ready and I was forced to wait the best part of an hour for my car which had not even been dispatched yet.
For some reason, details of my flight were given as me flying to and from Miami rather than New York, which was not my fault. When I rightly complained, I was told by customer services at Purple Parking (PP) that they were not responsible as the booking was not taken by via their website.
No effort or gesture of goodwill was made by Purple Parking to either compensate me for the mix-up or ensure my future custom. PP did however have no problem in over charging me for this inadequate service.
As PP have no interest in trying to make amends, I am forced to share this unpleasant experience on the full range of social media (FB, BBC Watchdog etc).
I will never use this service again and I will warn others not to either.
Purple Parking's lack of interest in trying to make things right is disappointing, and ultimately leaves me no confidence in ever using or recommending this service to anyone else.
British public steer well clear!!!"
Reminded with big signs to call as soon as plane lands to avoid delays.
So I did, and still waited 10 mins for bus to arrive then the bus goes to other terminals to fill the bus.
Arrive at car 40 minutes after arriving at bus stop.
Not worth the pain. Will never use again"
"I used Purple parking at the end of January. Leaving my car with them for a week when travelling to Egypt from T5 Heathrow
The service was first class, easy to book online (also the best price I could find).
Park was fairly easy to find, reassuring when car is photographed prior to entry into car park.
Parked car and our cases were immediately put into bus we walked a 20 metres to waiting room, where there were toilets and comfortable seats. After a short wait (5-10 minutes) we were told to board the bus which took us to terminal 5 (about 10-15 minutes). Upon return one week later we phoned as soon as the plane landed (we had been given a card with a reference number to quote) by the time we arrived at the bus stop, the bus was waiting for us. A quick 10 minutes trip back the car park and the driver dropped us off right next to our car, gave us the keys and we were on our way home.
The flights out and in were were in the middle of the day and I guess January is not a busy time, but I cannot fault the efficiency of Purple Parking system and will definitely use them again, it will be interesting to see if the system is as successful in busier periods or late at night/earlier in the morning."
"Appalling and unreliable service with the rudest drivers that I have ever come across - avoid at all costs!"February 5, 2016
"Having used purple parking on several occasions now I would recommend it not only for the competitive price but also for the delivery of the service. The car park is a little way out from the airport but is ideal if you are happy to give yourself a bit more time at either end. The staff are friendly, kind and useful (especially in times of crisis, my car broke down whilst still at the car park and they couldnt have been more accommodating, especially the duty manager) purple parking have a few different parking services so just make sure you're clear with what you've booked."January 21, 2016
"Problems arose due to being delayed abroad - there is no way to make contact or amend booking to delay return except for a truly prohibitively expensive phone call - very annoying."January 17, 2016
