Ferraris, Lambourghinis and Rolls Royces might not be the first cars that come to mind when thinking of Barking – but a new luxury hire company is hoping to change all that.
Originally set up in 2006, Season Car Hire launched their new warehouse in the Abbey Wharf industrial estate, Kingsbridge Road, last Wednesday night.
Managing director Sarfraaz Pate, a former toolmaker for Ford, is looking forward to driving forward local business.
He said: “Barking offers a great location for us.
“We are just 25 minutes from central London and I believe we’re going to have a really positive impact on the local economy.
“In addition to car hire we also offer chauffeur services and all of our staff so we’re hoping to do business with local schools.
