Registering your vehicle with Star Car Hire


Does it cost to register my vehicle with Star Car Hire?
NO: Star Car Hire work on a commission basis therefore do not currently charge a fee for listing vehicles on our website. What kind of fees can I expect from hiring out my vehicle?
Each job will differ depending on the nature of the job, location, time required, mpg of vehicles etc. On most occasions we will discuss prices with you before a quote is given to the client.

When will my vehicle be listed on the Star Car Hire website?
Although all vehicles are stored in our database we DO NOT list all vehicles on the website. Quite often a company will ask us to source vehicles for TV & Film, Photo shoots and various other events so by registering with us will increase your chances of getting paid work for your vehicle. Star Car Hire’s Role
Star Car Hire’s main role is to promote your vehicle(s) online and source paid work. We will often assist in making arrangements for events and aim to make sure that all necessary precautions are put in place to protect vehicles however we accept no responsibility for any damage caused to a vehicle during an event.

Your role as a vehicle owner / supplier
Vehicle owners are responsible for looking after their own vehicle(s) during any event and making sure that they arrive at the agreed place on time. Vehicles must be clean and well presented and drivers must be polite and as helpful as possible to clients. If a vehicle breaks down on the way to an event it is your responsibility to notify both the client and Star Car Hire immediately. We will try to assist where possible in arranging an alternative vehicle.

Vehicle owners are responsible for making sure that your vehicle(s) are fully taxed, MOT’d and fully insured for any event you take on board. Eg. If you plan on using your vehicle for weddings you must ensure that you extend your insurance policy to cover wedding hire / hire and reward. This can normally be added at a small additional charge to your classic vehicle policy. Star Car Hire is not responsible for insuring your vehicle and is not liable for any damage or accidents caused whatsoever.

Who will drive my vehicle?
Star Car Hire do not usually hire out vehicles for self drive therefore the owner or person responsible for the vehicle would normally be responsible for driving. Sometimes in the case of TV and film work an actor or stunt driver may be required to drive however we would normally ask the client to provide insurance.
