Here are some comments that our customers have made about Manchester Purple Parking Park & Ride
Transport between car park and airport was not good. Firstly, it was listed as taking 5 minutes - more like 30 minutes.
Secondly, there were no secure seatbelts for our 17 month old daughter.
Thirdly, the driver drove dangerously and in excess of the speed limit. If we'd had even a small bump I dread to think about what would have happened to my daughter.
Basically, they have no regard for their passingers safety.

Ok parking, but definately longer than the quoted 5 min transfer, more like 15 - 20 mins.

good secure parking ( hard to find when using directions from the booking agents) the transport staff could smile a little, noticed more when coming back from holiday, staff abroad always happy giving a smile and saying hello so noticed when all we got was a grunt and an unhappy face, not much to ask but it does make a differance to the total experiance.

Excellent and efficient service. No waiting about for the bus and straight to the airport.

Location of car park secluded and easily found (even with sat nav) however in fairness to Autostrong on calling them they guided me to their premises. Paperwork ready and promptly taken to airport, assisted with loading and unloading - all very professional. Transport was waiting on our arrival and car was ready at the parking facility. Excellent service.

Excellent value for money. Directions easy and simple to follow. All the paperwork was in order for us arriving even though we arrived a good bit earlier than anticipated. No delays in getting to the airport and only had to wait 5 mins for collection on our arrival back into the UK. All in all a very good service that I would not hesitate to use again or recommend to friends. Would like to see the appearance of the operation raised by maybe initiating small changes like uniforms to easily identify staff.

Waited 30 minutes for pick up after phoning office. It was clear this was to benefit a regular customer who came in on a later flight and returned with us.

With Autostrong you get what you pay for - no thrills.
The parking is secure, the buses run quickly and efficiently when you need them. Perfect really.
The only downside is the contact you have with staff, both booking in, picking up and transfers to and from we didn't come across a single smile.
Not to worry though - you're going on holiday!

Can't really complain. Other than having difficulties in finding the place, everything else went smoothly. People were friendly. Will use again. Highly recommended

we arrived early on the day of departure, which made life easier, and booked the car in within a few minutes and then it was board the minibus for the start of our holiday. Journey to the airport took back roads rather than the more direct route, i assume to avoid traffic, so it was a few minutes longer than advertised, but that really is nitpicking!
Return was just as efficient, although we wasn't picked up directly outside the terminal (nitpicking again!) and the car was ready and waiting when we arrived at Autostrong.
All-in-all a good service

Perhaps I was unlucky but the attitude of the drivers has made sure I will never use this company again. Surly, ignorant, couldn`t care less manner has insured this. Given with the fact it advertises 10-20 mins from the airport, it fails to mention this is as the crow flies (with a good tail wind).
Would I recommend them? never in a month of Sundays.

The car park was not 5 mins from the air port as advertised. the staff although not rude were not particularly friendly. Apearance counts for a lot with initial impressions.

A well organised and friendly service. Having the car ready for pickup at the carpark drop off is a good bonus.

Although it wasn't the easiest place to find, the staff were friendly and the service was good. The transfer time was about 10 minutes as advertised and we didn't have to wait very long going or coming back. Most importantly I felt the price was very good and the security seemed well up to standard. I would use them again and would recommend them.

I was very happy with the service I received from Autostrong. I found they oporated a quick service when we entered and returned the park area. They provided a good travel service to and from the airport which was safe for our children. The car was also in the same condition as when I left it in a very safe secure area. Overall a great service will use you again Thanks....

We were very pleased indeed with Manchester Autostrong Parking.
On the down side, it is a few miles from the airport and not the easiest place in the world to find. So if you don’t have a Sat-Nav be sure to do your route planning very carefully and in good time!
Once there however, (at 5:00 AM in our case), things went very smoothly. The paper work was all in order, our car was driven away and the minibus left within ten minutes.
Much the same on our return, we phoned once we had collected our bags and the bus arrived within ten minutes. No hassle at the depot either, keys and car were both out and ready for us, with just a signature required.
But I still needed the Sat-Nav to find the M56 and my way home!
It’s very safe, they’re nice people and excellent value for money.
I will use them again.

I HAVE USED AUTOSTRONG IN THE PAST AND HAVE ALWAYS FOUND THEM AN EXCELLENT SERVICE TO USE,HOWEVER I BOOKED THIS TIME THROUGH YOUR COMPARISON SITE BUT WHEN WE ARRIVED AT AUTOSTRONG THEY HAD NO RECORD OF OUR BOOKING.THEY HAD NOT BEEN CONTACTED BY YOU WITH OUR DETAILS.THIS DELAY MEANT WE COULD HAVE MISSED OUR CHECK IN TIME OR EVEN BEEN REFUSED TRANSPORT TO THE AIRPORT.NOT A GOOD START TO A HOLIDAY. AFTER AUTOSTRONG LOOKED ON THIER COMPUTER FOR OUR DETAILS WE WERE OK.SO THE NEXT TIME WE BOOK A HOLIDAY I WILL GO THROUGH THE AUTOSTRONG DIRECT WEBSITE.

On arrival, this parking facility was not very professional. There seemed to be very little organisation, especially compared to other car parks I have previously booked with via the Airport Parking Shop.
More customers than there were spaces on the transfer minibus arrived at the same time and there was no system of getting them onto the bus. This resulted in customers falling out over who got onto the bus first and who had actually reported to reception first.
As no customer on the minibus was prepared to get off the bus and wait for the 2nd minibus that was on its way back from the airport, the bus driver got off the bus refusing to take anyone anywhere.
At this time I was in reception checking in and the bus driver suggested to the receptionist that she go and sort it out as she knew who had checked in first.
This was only resolved when the driver with a 2nd, larger minibus arrived back from the airport. My party and another party (that had arrived while this 'show' was in full flow) now had to wait for everyone from the first bus to get off and get into the larger mini bus before we could get on and get to the airport.
However, the return journey from the airport was punctual and keys were returned with little fuss and we were on our way home within 10 minutes of arriving back at the car park.

Overall,we found the service very good. The reception office was very efficient, the staff friendly and courteous, and the transer to/from the airport operated very smoothly.

They were unpleasant and rude. I politely queried an entry on the form I had to sign,which quoted the wrong price [£36 vs £28] whereupon they said , with added emphasis and unnecessary aggressiveness, either sign the form or don't park with us. I would not consider using them again

Directions to the car parking facility were great. It was raining and our luggage was swept quickly into the trailer for transportation, as were we, except on to the bus! :) check in at parking was fast and efficient there and back. We set off within 10 minutes to the airport. On our way back the bus took 5 minutes to arrive and we were straight off home! A*
