There is no doubt classic car ownership is a wonderful thing, it is always special knowing that you a part of a unique community that appreciates the technical excellence of human achievement over the past century. A Sunday drive through the country in your pride and joy is one of life’s finer pleasures
However, with rising costs in fuel and also the known costs of running such a vehicle it is not uncommon for classics to be underused and therefore underappreciated. Fortunately, this does not have to be the case! Here at Dropless we love (and clean) all types of vehicles, and we want to make sure you get as much out of your classic car as possible. A classic car is a valuable commodity and can be used for all sorts of ventures whether you are looking to make a bit of extra cash on the side or simply wish to share the splendour of your vehicle. Take a look at some of the options that you may not have considered before…
Wedding or Prom hire
A classic car is the perfect accompaniment to an event, adding a distinguished feel to every occasion. In the UK alone the wedding industry is worth £10 billion each year and you could take a slice of this by offering your car as a service. In the past few years traditional wedding carriages have been eschewed for alternative options to fit a wide range of themes. Ford Mustangs have been hugely popular as well as more traditional sports cars such as the Jaguar E-type. It is always a nice feeling knowing that you have been a part of one of the most important days in a couples lives.
Although owning a classic may not be for everyone there is no doubt that they hold universal aesthetic appeal. Classic cars are widely used in fashion and other industries as props to enhance a photo. What’s more, the fees paid for a single day of work can be astronomical and the car does not have to be driven giving you peace of mind that it will stay in pristine condition
Film companies are constantly on the lookout for a variety of different models the UK is a world hub of period film making which means that there are always plenty of opportunities to look out for. Similarly to photoshoots, production companies are willing to pay very high figures to get the perfect car for their movie. The cherry on the cake will be seeing your car on the silver screen, a very unique experience and one which you can revel in for many years to come.
’’Staycation’’ holidays have been increasing in popularity over the past few years in the UK which is great news for classic car owners. Holidaymakers are keen to add a special touch which a bog-standard rental simply cannot provide. VW camper vans for instance, hold great appeal as the whole family can be transported safely and the quirky touches will provide entertainment for all.
