Marbella Bound and Loaded with Bentleys…
As specialists in international car transport, the OnTime team are often tasked with transporting some pretty precious cargo, far and wide. November saw us faced with a project of herculean proportions; we were responsible for transporting not one, but 18 brand new Bentley Bentayga SUVs – all the way from Crewe to a beautiful beach resort in Marbella. The exact destination? The exclusive world premiere of the latest Bentley model, hosted by C. De Salamanca, Spain’s official Bentley dealership.
It was a busman’s holiday for Team OnTime, as we travelled down to the glamourous Puente Romano hotel for the event, which ran for the duration of the month. Using our fleet of specialist shuttle car transporters, designed for top-spec luxury vehicles that require extra care and attention, we were able to deliver the pricey packages in pristine condition, ready to be displayed for the launch of the Bentley Bentayga.

Over the years we’ve provided covered car transport services for some weird and wonderful vehicles. We’ve transported rare classic cars, right through to one of a kind, straight-from-the-factory custom models. But when we were approached by the Durham University Electric Motorsport team and asked to transport a solar-powered race car, it was a truly unique project, and one that we were honoured to be a part of.
We were initially contacted by the DUEM team back in late September via our Twitter page, when they asked if we wanted to transport their solar car. Never ones to turn down such an exciting opportunity, of course we agreed to do so. Read more
Progress continues to be made with Project Response, an initiative designed to help Uniformed Public, Electronics and Mechanic students at Bracknell and Workingham College. We use our enclosed car transportation knowledge to transport a blue Peaugeot 206 to the grounds and helped the College avoid any tax, MOT and insurance issues. Since the last update in April, further milestones have improved the quality of the programme and car.
Various donations, most notably a grant of £250 from Winkfield Parish Council, have helped the College secure £420 that has been sent on the car and new equipment. In April the students received two stab proof vests worth £800 from Safeguard Armour. The vests were used alongside the car for roleplaying and training sessions to demonstrate the weight and restrictions placed on police offers despite the protection they offer.
It’s only a few days into May and our car transportation team has been hard at work transporting 2 Suzuki Celerios up and down the country. The tour is taking place throughout the month so there’s plenty of opportunity to marvel at these sleek and robust vehicles. The cars are being delivered to shopping centres around the UK where customers are welcome to admire and touch the brand new models.
The 2015 Commercial Vehicle show took place at the NEC Birmingham Arena on the 14th to the 16th April. The exhibition caused car enthusiasts to flock from all over the country, with commercial vehicle operators and industry suppliers meeting. The show has been established for over a decade, providing valuable sourcing opportunities and this year was no different.
