"The transfer does not take 5-10 minutes as stated but takes at least 20 minutes in the middle of the night. 30 minutes with traffic + the time required waiting to fill the bus up.
On our return I rang the office who took 3 minutes to find my information and told me someone would be with me in 5 minutes. The driver turned up 30 minutes later.
I would never use this air park again.
With other air parks I have used they have had my flight details and been waiting for me on my arrival. I believe they forgot about my flight and had to send someone from the office whilst we waited late at night in the freezing cold.
"We thought the facility was very good. The directions to the location were very clear. Although the transfer time is a little longer than advertised i.e. about 15 minutes, the transfer to and from the airport was very effective, with no waiting time at either end."April 18, 2007
"Everything done very well. Staff pleasant and efficient. Very short waiting time at airport on return journey."April 18, 2007
Staff were friendly and efficient, car was ready on our return, all in all a good service.
Only drawback is I thought it said 5 minutes from airport, whereas it was nearer 15 minutes really.
Would be happy to use service again though."
"Very good service, would highly recommend them."April 17, 2007
"I was really impressed with Autostrong - they were expecting us and had all our details ready when we arrived at their premises and took us straight to the airport (which was only 5 minutes away). The premises were very secure, and we were given a card with instructions and the number to call when we got back to the airport, and they collected us from outside the terminal within 5 minutes.
I would have no hesitation in using them again if I was flying from Manchester airport."
"We used this car park mainly because of the competative price. The staff were polite and promptly transported us to the airport which took very little time. On our return from our trip, we made one phone call and we were picked up and returned to the car park. I consider this to be a very good service."April 16, 2007
"Very good service. Drop-off and pick-up very quick and efficient."April 16, 2007
"Easy to find, and only 10 mins from the airport. Drop off and pick-up was punctual and the price very competitive. I've used this car park twice now without a hitch. My only niggle is that one or two of the staff really ought to try smiling sometimes!"April 16, 2007
"The process went very smoothly and the drivers were very friendly.. the only thing would be to say that it was far longer than 5 mins away from the airport - which is what it said on the internet. Other than that .. no issues"April 16, 2007
"Excellent service - quick, efficient transfers to and from airport. My car was waiting at reception as we pulled back in to AutoStrong."April 16, 2007
"I had no problems with dealing with your company. It was easy to book online and the confirmation email came through very quickly. Full directions of how to get there were included and all I had to do when I arrived was hand over the keys. I made the telephone call from the airport after I had cleared customs and got my luggage and your minibus arrived in about 10-15 minutes. When I got back to the car park the car was ready and had only to sign for it and pick up the keys and I was away within 2 minutes. I would recommend your facility in the future."April 16, 2007
"Very professional service, easy to use, polite and helpful staff, car returned in perfect condition. Will be using Autostrong again and recommending them to friends and family."April 16, 2007
"The service provided by Autostrong recently was excellent. When we arrived a member of staff in the carpark directed us to a very convenient parking spot. The office was expecting us, the paperwork was waiting and within two or three minutes we were on our way to the airport. The return trip was equally efficient and we waited no longer than others using for comparable services. Again, the office was quick and efficient and we were very quickly on our way. Having said that I should point out it was a very quiet time both departing and arriving but on the strength of our experiene I would have no hestitation in recommending Autostrong to others."April 13, 2007
"Site easy to find from directions given;only 5/10 mins to wait outbound for transfer and 5 mins for return pick up; polite and helpfull staff."April 13, 2007
"good instructions to get there, great price, efficient check-in and check-out, pleasant staff. Will use this park again."April 12, 2007
"Had a bit of trouble finding it as the directions were vague. ie 'turn down woodfield road' should say, 'turn RIGHT down Woodfield road'.
Arrived around 4.30 am. Only one girl on the desk, so there was a bit of a wait, but it was Easter week and she was courteous and efficient.
Bus service to the airport was fine.
I had several return flight changes whilst away, so had to ring up a couple of times to inform them. The phone was always answered quickly and the girl was very friendly. Pick up from the airport was again fine.
My vehicle was parked outside reception waiting for me on arrival.
I found Autostrong to be very cheap compared to the rest of the sites, but even so gave a very good service.
One small problem. I was in a VW transporter van and was told that I would have to pay double next time as it was bigger than a car. I have only had this problem at one other airpark. Most are fine as the van is no bigger than a 4x4. Sadly, I will be unable to use Autostrong again because of this. I think maximum vehicle lenghth allowed should be established on their web page when booking."
"It was the first time i used Autostrong and i had no problems at all,would use there services again and again cheep reliable and quick service AAA+++"April 12, 2007
"No problems with Autostrong and great price. Would use again."April 11, 2007
"Our outbound experience was disappointing. The driver took a long winded route to the airport which probably took about 30 minutes. He advised us en-route that it was his first night driving for Armstrong and hadn't been to the Airport for some years but used to drive into the Airport regularly.
On arrival at the airport he managed to find Terminal 1 and dropped some passengers off, however, he then proceeded to drive straight past the slip road to Terminal 2, out of the Airport and back onto the Motorway. He then started to tell us how much the Airport had changed since the last time he was there whilst driving to the next exit and turning around and returning on the opposite carriageway.
Fortunately, our party had arrived in plenty of time and so were not too concerned about the extra time taken, however, there were others on the bus who were sweating a bit as they were obviously a bit tight for time.
It was unfortunate that it was the Driver's first night on the job, but at the very least I would have expected him to have been been shown the route by an experienced driver. This clearly hadn't happened.
Apart from that the drivers were courteous and helpful and the vehicles clean and tidy with minimal waiting time at both ends.
However, the '5 minutes' claimed to get to the Airport is a gross understatement and it should be nearer 20 to 30 minutes."
"More than the quoted five minutes from the airport but otherwise this was a good, efficient service."April 10, 2007
"excellent service. Very friendly and efficient. Will use again"April 8, 2007
"Parked with Autostrong for the 1st time and the service was 1st class, would use their service again. Have used other parking service at mancheste airport and found he service to be poor. again 1st class service at autostrong"April 6, 2007
"Collected and dropped off with no problem,it's a little difficult to find it the first time,also a bit far out.The staff very friendly and helpful."April 6, 2007
"Speed of delivery to airport and pickup were very good.
Only thought was return driver unloaded my 3 cases and left them for me to take to my car. He walked passed my car and into the office - no other passengers on this trip."
"I found the place quite easily, though it was further away than the place I usually use. Went for it because it was cheaper than my usual place. Very efficient - took me to my flight, but didn't offer to carry my bags! I was delayed on my return so I telephoned them to let them know (I don't know if this is expected, but I try to be polite and helpful to everybody, hoping for the same courtesy!) - I came back to a different terminal so I let them know where I was - got picked up and returned to collect my car. May not use them again because of the travelling distance. Then again, I may not use Manchester airport again because check in was horrendous - and I got back hours late because of cancelled flights to find my luggage was still in Los Angeles - but that's another story!!!! Oh! the joys of travelling!*!*!"April 4, 2007
"Excellent service and safe parking."April 3, 2007
"Was very happy with the service that was provided couldn't really fault it. Was easy to find and was only a quick journey to the airport, we were also picked up on time from our flight home."April 2, 2007
"Easy to find and painfree book-in, all paperwork was ready and waiting. Transported to airport in own mini bus without undue waiting. Collected at airport also with minimal waiting. Car was ready and waiting in perfect condition. Recommended, I have used this park three times now with no problems."April 1, 2007
"No problems, only the condition of the transport vans was not very good compared to the standard we had in Austria!"April 1, 2007
