Had a wonderful time in the V8 Mustang. Car was beautifully detailed and in immaculate condition. Flexible and professional booking process, and thoroughly run through the car’s features when picking up the car. Super friendly bunch of guys, left my car there and it was kept in a secure compound. Wouldn’t hesitate to recommend.

I’d just like to thank everyone at Sports Car Hire for a fantastic weekend in one of the rarest cars on the road at the moment; the McLaren 570s. Service was excellent from beginning to end and the fleet are exactly what I look for. The car was immaculate throughout, as you would expect and a tip sheet was helpful throughout the weekend. The car was phenomenal and must be driven as it is a truly engaging drive like no other car I’ve drive before, but without being as intimidating as you would expect. It is great to deal with a team that understands that some people want to hire out cars that are a little more special, like this and the Zenos, which you wouldn’t normally expect a hire company to consider. I look forward to hiring from them again in the near future.

Can’t flaw the service, incredibly happy with the car and the service. It’s nice to know somewhere that has very reasonable costs for the level of hire available. Even planning what car to have a go in next!!
Have been thinking about a group hire in the spring/ Summer for me and a few mates, just getting the dates together then will let you know. Fancy a little tour of some nice roads around Wales for a long weekend. Will definitely keep you guys posted!

“Driving a Lamborghini was on my bucket list; I checked out several places, and overall Sportshire seemed the most “genuine”. Rates were reasonable, and excess miles are at a fixed charge (most places have different rates for “pre-booked” or not, so you have to try and guess how many extra miles you’ll do). Booking and collecting the car was hassle-free, and you get the feeling that these guys love sports cars rather than it being purely a money-making venture. The Gallardo was awesome, in the most dazzling yellow, worked perfectly, smooth and civilised when cruising round but with stunning power on tap when required. Sportshire is handy for north Wales, and I was very lucky with the weather too. I’d be quite happy to use them again.”

Everything went very well and I was very happy with your service, Liam was very helpful and friendly. I can’t think of anything else to improve in terms of the cars and service although it might be useful to have a larger list of suggested hotels. I stayed over at the Quay Hotel in Conwy which was very good, I could also see the car from the hotel room which was helpful although they don’t have CCTV which is a slight downside.
You might want to offer a few pre-planned routes from Shrewsbury that provide a good drive within the permitted mileage allowances. My booking was for a few days holiday with my teenage son and he viewed the trip similar to one of the road trips seen on Top Gear, I mapped the full two days of driving out on google maps (attached) which incorporated some of the roads you showed on your website, we didn’t follow them exactly but it was a useful guide. The road trip with 1 or 2 overnight stays is something you might want to consider promoting more in addition to the usual birthday/gift/wedding hires.

I’ve been looking forward to receiving this email request for feedback. I rather expected my euphoria to have subsided over the past 6 days, but I’m delighted to say that it hasn’t at all and the memory is very fresh indeed. My wife and I hired the Caterham 7 for the day last Tuesday. I drove! What a really fantastic experience and what a great, fun, fast car which corners like no other. I’m 64 and have driven lots of performance saloon cars; old and young sports cars and motorbikes but the Caterham 7 was ‘THE BEST’. I’ve since been telling family and friends to forget ‘a track day’ out. Hire The “7” !!! and you certainly won’t regret it. (I’m currently selling my old 225bhp TT, and am toying with the idea of buying a Caterham) I have to say that all your staff couldn’t have been more friendly or helpful.
I can be a ‘Victor Meldrew’ and be negative, if appropriate, but I have only positive feedback on my experience of your Company and the service given. I may well return in the Spring to take out the Elise which your guys recommended and kindly showed me round. 10% would be more encouraging to return! Thank you again. I’d be happy for this appraisal to be shared.
James Downing (29/06/15)
My husband and I had a fantastic weekend and were extremely pleased with the service from you guys, in particular Liam who was great and extremely helpful! My husband hasn’t stopped talking about the R8 since, and now just wants to exchange his TT! I’ve already recommended you guys to all our friends on FB and will definitely add some feedback to Tripadvisor when I get some time this week.
I felt the whole experience was great value for money, particularly as some of the companies I had looked at nearer to us (London) were almost double the price and offered lower mileage!
In terms of driving routes, I had looked on your website but there weren’t many south of yourselves. On our first day we travelled down to Ludlow and then came back via Montgomery and the road from there to Westbury where we were staying was lovely and had some fantastic straights! The scenery may perhaps not be quite as spectacular as the routes you’ve suggested on your site, but it was still a really lovely drive, so it may be worth looking at some extra routes in that area as the Shropshire Hills are a great area to drive around?
In terms of cars, I’m personally a Lotus fan and I know you’ve got the Elise, but if you ever purchase the Evora then please stick me first on the list! We would def consider the new Jag next time or your Porche looked pretty good fun!
Other than that, thanks very much for such a memorable experience, I hope your business continues to grow!

I hired the Bentley Convertible for my husbands 50th birthday treat. It was a surprise for him and all the staff were brilliant from start to finish. Scott who initially showed me the cars, Liam who dealt with me most professionally over the phone and Matt who was had a totally confused but happy husband to explain the features of the car to. The Bentley was immaculate and the whole experience very enjoyable. Thank you.
Julie & Dylan
If you are looking for a first rate customer and driving experience then i would look no further and give these guys a try. From start to finish the whole experience was easy and relaxed. Everyone I had dealings with (special mention to Liam & Matt) made the hire of the Porsche Cayman for the weekend a dream come true. The car was immaculate (like new), everything was explained very clearly upfront, and the car itself – wow! It turned heads wherever i went (especially with the sports exhaust mode switched on!). I cannot recommend these guys highly enough.
“Having never hired a supercar before I was honestly nervous at the start, but as soon as I stepped into the showroom, Matt at Sportscarhire made the experience completely relaxed and professional throughout. I especially appreciated that they took as long as I needed to go over every aspect of the hiring process leaving me with no doubts whatsoever. The staff was one thing, but I haven’t even got to the GT-R yet! Anyone with an ounce of appreciation for cars and engineering will simply marvel at the jaw-dropping performance of this machine. I cannot recommend this enough – the first time my wife had a go and planted the accelerator she was crying with joy! Two days later we reluctantly gave back the car, and despite being several hours earlier than planned, Matt was very accommodating and checked us out of “Godzilla”. The level of service we received was unrivalled, the rates were very competitive, and in short – we will be returning!”
Peter Clayton, Shropshire
“What an experience. First class cars supplied by first class people at first class rates. Staff are professional, knowledgeable, friendly and know what their customer wants. I left feeling as though i had made new friends which speaks volumes about the whole set up.
The Caterham was amazing, it looked incredible and drove better. Used it to take my son to his prom and he loved the experience. The cars are the stars and you feel that making money is secondary to supplying customers with a thrilling experience. Will I be back? Without a doubt, I just need to decide which car to take next!
Thanks for the experience fellas, great job”.
Paula Pugh, Shropshire (7 July 2014)
“I hired a BMW Z4 to take my son to his Prom from this company. Very professional to deal with and the car was immaculate. No problems and would certainly recommend to anyone thinking of hiring a sports car for a special occasion. It was so nice for us to arrive in style at the Prom and as the weather was good we had the top down and shades on!”
Sarah Loftus, Shropshire (28 June 2014)
“We hired this lovely car as a weekend package staying at the Lake Vyrnwy Hotel. It was great, the car went like a dream and we were blessed with some fine weather so could really take advantage of the top being down, touring through the Welsh countryside with the wind in our hair! The whole experience was excellent from pick up to drop off and we will definitely be hiring another car from Sportscarhire in the near future. A really good fun experience!”
Claire Thurmer, Shrewsbury (20 June 2014)
“It was a pleasure to meet you and your colleagues at Sportscarhire.
Although initially I was dubious about the low price of the car and any hidden extras as well as leaving a deposit those fears soon disappeared when I met you guys and the excellent premises and quality and standard of vehicles you provide.”
“The service was impeccable from start to finish from a friendly bunch of Petrolheads. The whole experience was professional and unhurried and as a customer I was extremely satisfied. The GTR was phenomenal and the weekend hire gave me a good opportunity to put the car through its paces as well as experience what it would be like to live with one if I purchased one.”
–Paul Singh, Derby (10 June 2014)
“I’m happy to say that all went well and we had a very enjoyable couple of days with the car. I was very impressed with the “showroom” look of the G-TR, and I can’t imagine it looking any better when new. It was obvious that it’s an awesome car and indeed a very noticeable step up from the Evo. I’ll now be combing the ad’s for a potential purchase!”
“For me this was great value for money and enabled me to get a full appreciation of the car. I only wish you were closer to Leicester! From what I have seen, I am sure Sportscarhire will be a great success.”
–Peter Lindsay, Leicester (27 May 2014)
