About Silver Fleet
Once the Operations Manager for the UK's predominant private air charter company, Tony Hayter now exercises his logistical planning expertise in his own business.
'We are proud of our reputation in providing well organised, reliable and prompt passenger transportation to and from popular cruise ships berthed at the major British Seaports.'
When he has a moment, Tony spends a little leasure time playing guitar in a very special Pink Floyd Tribute act.
Carefully chosen for their expertise in and around London. It takes some years to really know your way around - to avoid the routine traffic bottlenecks.
All our drivers come with this experience. Most were born in London and have lived here their entire lives.
To drive for us, each driver must hold a Public or Private Hire Drivers' Licence.
These are issued by local council where the driver lives. Some by the PCO in London, others by their equivalent Local Council in adjoining Counties. Part of the process is a submission for Police Record check.
Created in 2001, Silver Fleet Transfers registered as a Limited Company in 2010. We now need to advertise our service less as more and more overseas clients come back for 2nd or 3rd time. We are just a small firm with no desire to grow. We do get fully booked on some of the popular sailing dates and close the books sometimes months in advance - so be quick.
'we operate according to some fundamental principles....'
Be on time - We know that you will be feeling anxious about your transportation. We therefore schedule our drivers to be ready for you just a few minutes early. Before you've even thought about 'what happens if he doesn't show up?'
No surprises - The price you see is the price you pay. Absolutley no hidden extras or surcharges later.
No cancelations - We will never cancel a Shuttle Schedule after the first person has booked. Even if we finish up with just a single client, we will still happily do the job!
Respond swiftly - We will respond to all emailed enquiries within 1 x working day. Most times we will reply within an hour or so and during weekend.
We operate only large 7/8 seat Mercedes Minivans. No regular cars
