“Meet & Greet? Wait & Greet more like! ”

Written on: 31/03/2018 by DerrickSchneider324 (1 review written)

I’d give a zero if I could! Firstly I booked online and was supposed to get an email outlining arrival instructions. No email came. I had the mobile number that was on their website so called that about an hour or so before I was due to arrive to get instructions. This number went straight through to voicemail. I called probably 10 times en route to the airport and left messages and was getting more and more worried that there’s wouldnt be anyone there to meet me. I tried to call The Forge… Read Full Review

“Warning”

Written on: 25/09/2017 by KarissaCoyle438 (1 review written)

If 40 people read this notice warning them to find another safer place to park their car other than this god awful establishment, and twenty of those 40 people decide not to use it, then the money I've had to spend on getting my car back up to looking something like it was before I left it there then the money is well spent. God only knows why Bristol Trading Standards have not got involved I don't know. They should feature on a Channel 5 "Park at your Peril" type documentary. Do not use! It… Read Full Review

“Cheap parking”

Written on: 05/08/2017 by Belladoodle (2 reviews written)

I used forge from 31/07/17 to 4/8/17 and I really don't understand all the bad reviews, i have a massive OCD with being early for things and was 45 mins early and after reading some reviews i was expecting a bit of a standiff but I drove in was greeted by a smiling woman in the cabin who was absolutely fine with me being there early we were shown where to park, paid £26!, had a lad drive us to the airport in a minibus, went on holiday, came back, was greeted my a lovely bloke who drove us back… Read Full Review

“Ripped off!!”

Written on: 24/07/2017 by nicksgarmin (1 review written)

After going online and entering all of my vehicle details and receiving a price I went ahead and booked, only to turn up and be told that it was an extra £10 for a transporter van, rip off merchants!! I didn't read the reviews before hand but what a shoddy company! I know is was only parking there but the place is pure filth! I also wished I had checked my mileage now as lots of previous reviews reported extra mileage on their cars. Leave well alone!! Pay a bit extra and go somewhere else… Read Full Review

“Just awful service”

Written on: 06/07/2017 by Amiru266 (1 review written)

We turned up at Forge and I felt that it was like the film Deliverence. Our "meet & greet" was a scowling large woman having a cigarette out the front of the shack and she didn't even want to speak to us. When we collected our car we were told we "should be able to get it out ok" we were rammed in the long grass with a road cone behind our back wheel which we discovered was concealing a huge hole in the ground. Our car would have got stuck in it for sure so we had to do a bit of tricky… Read Full Review

“Rude and indifferent staff ”

Written on: 06/07/2017 by 456Cormier (1 review written)

We have used Forge Airport Parking in the past and although it is rough and ready we were satisfied with what we had paid for. This time, however (June 2017), it was a different matter. It was raining and as there is nowhere to shelter on the plot you have to sit in your car and wait until you see one of the transits come onto the site. OK, not expecting a VIP lounge but a bit of investment would be nice. On the way out the woman driving kept us waiting while she had a cigarette and then… Read Full Review

“Do not use the forge car park ”

Written on: 21/05/2017 by KarenP99 (1 review written)

Do not use this car park if you are returning home late at night,we waited over an hour at 1 am Sat morning in the freezing cold, the driver took 10 minutes to answer the phone, then said he would be 15 mins, 30 mins later I called again to be told he had been to the airport and had a van load of people now!! The yellow bus was not what we were looking out for and just had a small bit of paper on the front with the Forge written on, others also missed it. We waited another 20 minutes, the car… Read Full Review

“Absolutely useless”

Written on: 18/05/2017 by Sage443 (1 review written)

Attitude from the driver was absolutely awful. Driver came and picked us up, the bus filled up quickly with people were waiting first, which is fine as they were first. However, this meant our group couldn't all fit on at once. Driver then got annoyed for some reason and told us he wasn't coming back a 2nd time to pick us up? Eventually we had to convince him to do it, which is ridiculous as we paid for a service so i expected to be shuttled there and back without a problem. When he came back… Read Full Review

Shorthaul's Comment

Written on: 12/05/2017

I totally agree with you and made the mistake ourselves, we arrived back from Spain last night, and phoned the mobile number to be told, he'd just left the car park and would be back in 15 mins, but after over 30 mins I phoned again to ask where he was.
I was told he'd been already and not collected us because we weren't there, I was so annoyed, and asked why he didn't call our names or phone us, and his reply was he didn't have a mobile phone and laughed..... after over an hour's wait and explaining that his minibus wasn't sign written and just had a small hand written sign on the window, he did arrive, and we complained to him to his face and he just laughed and said he didn't care.
Two security workers at the airport, intervened and said that's no way to treat paying customers, and he laughed and said he'd had their money so it didn't matter to him.
The minibus was filthy and stunk of oil, with empty plastic bottles and rubbish on the floor, we were just so tired after our journey and wanted to get home, but the car park was in total darkness and we couldn't check for any damage and had to accept our car and drive out.... so please spend the extra few pounds and get the service that you deserve..

“Avoid”

Written on: 08/02/2017 by Rylanb456 (1 review written)

Don't use - they left us waiting over an hour after ringing them then they refused to take all of the people waiting just the drivers who they expected to drive back to pick up rest of their parties. Got back to our cars and found that ours had been left unlocked. Have used this firm before and found them fine but after this time will never use them again. They have moved several times which makes you wonder who they are trying to hide from… Read Full Review

Meet and greet thay say well it is certainly not when he arrived at airport to pick us up he didn't even acknowledge us he was talking to another driver and said to us "I don't do luggage ". and let us struggle with our cases to get them up on to the bus. When we arrived at the car park our vehicle had been moved the position of the seats had been changed, the radio had been put on another station. The driver just got out of the bus and walked away didn't even make sure that we got off the bus… Read Full Review

“Forge Car Park near Bristol Airport - DO NOT USE!”

Written on: 28/09/2016 by Flower66 (1 review written)

I used the Forge Car Park in Bristol for the first time in August 2016 and will never go back there ever again as money was stolen from my car by one of their employees! Firstly, their website states that all cars are parked in their “secure” compound when actually it is far from the truth. The car park where you drop your car off is located in the grounds of “The Bungalow Inn” pub car park and is easily accessible to thieves through woodland and open fields. The actual location is… Read Full Review

“Don't take the risk!”

Written on: 12/09/2016

I'm not one to write negative reviews usually but my car which was clean and in pristine condition before being left with Forge Car park, on my return was absolutely filthy, covered in mud with a damaged alloy wheel, a VERY expensive alloy wheel!! They don't care about your car and they certainly don't care about unhappy customers, I emailed to complain and their response was did the person that powder-coated my allow wheels follow me to their car park! Don't bother trying to recover any… Read Full Review

“Just dont”

Written on: 05/09/2016 by Angelique198 (1 review written)

The van is a shed on wheels, i didnt feel safe in it. The car park is very hard to find and the service from staff was very poor. I was travelling alone with a small child and was offered no assistance with bags or anything else. On our return, i was left waiting for 30 minutes as i couldnt get through on the mobile number provided and no answer from the office phone. When i eventually got through, the driver was really rude, said he didnt care that i was upset at the wait and he would be there… Read Full Review

“FORGE CAR PARKING TERRIBLE”

Written on: 29/08/2016 by LilianaShea189 (1 review written)

Well where do I start We had directions and we've used forge before. When we got to the location they had moved this is not the first time this has happened that is why we checked the location, After driving up and down looking to see if we can see cars parked we even checked the website to see if they had updated the website. Still no luck , we asked a bloke in the lane if he knew where they had moved to. With luck he knew where it was miles away we found it at last complained to the person… Read Full Review

Written on: 20/07/2016 by Sotpedro (1 review written)

We flew two weeks ago and almost missed our flight thanks to the forge car park. We arrived in plenty of time for our flight went to the car park to find a sign saying they had moved. Directions to new park were really vague.Three o'clock in the morning nobody to ask where they were.We finally found it 40 minutes later. No one there when we arrived had to wait 30 mins for someone to come.We asked the guy in the office why they hadn't let us know they had moved. His answer I'm new here have told… Read Full Review
