I have found FSS 7 Toad very dependable and not expensive. The staff are very helpful and polite. Some of the drivers are a bit rough round the edges and are reluctant to help load and unload suitcases and that is the only reason that I have not given a higher rating.

Overall the service was excellent. I think locating the car park would be improved by larger and illuminated signage on Styal Road. At the moment it is easily missed. The bus collecting passengers at the terminal did no show on the large digital sign on the front, which car park it was servicing. Only a small sign on the side of the bus was visible. Amazing value and only 10 minutes form the terminal. The buses seem to run every 30 minutes. So make allowance for that if cutting it fine. I would definitely use them again.

We have used Toad several times now, and always get good service. The buses to the airport run frequently and park close to the entrances. The only slight downside is the gravel surface, which makes it rather difficult to pull along a heavy suitcase on wheels, but that is only a minor pitfall, not enough to put us off using them.

Toad Park and Ride Service is conveniently placed just a mile from Manchester Airport. I have used Toad Parking in the past and found it very friendly and relaxed. However the management and their ethos has changed drastically on this visit. Their friendly ways have sadly disappeared. They were very business like and cold in their customer service. In the past, they start our car and leave it ready for us to pick up on return. The weather had turned colder on my return this time. The car was left in open field and I had to spend an hour defrosting the car before driving home. Not the ideal experience you want after a long flight home.

The reception process was straight forward with no problems. The trip to and from the airport terminals were fine. The minus points on this occasion were as follows : the best thing about using this company in the past has been having the car close to reception with the lights and heating on and the engine running. Also the car park has recently had gravel laid and this made the journey to the car quite difficult. It might seem like I am nit picking here but to return to your car late at night in autumn/winter with the engine running was a real game changer in my eyes. Toad parking is now just another parking firm.

We have used this service on a number of occasions and always found it to be excellent. The procedure on arrival at reception is quick and easy, there is usually a bus waiting to take us to the terminal. On our return we had clear instructions for where to wait to be collected and a bus arrived within a few minutes to return us to reception at the car park. Key collection was quick and easy. I will continue to use this service which provides good value when compare to the other options available.

Fast, efficient service to the airport. Return was a nightmare - ended up waiting for over an hour for a pick up because 1]The bus stop wasn't indicated as per the card given and 2] the return bus did not give the name "Toad", so I wasn't looking for the right bus!. I had to ring twice for help. I raised this with staff when I got back to the parking site and advised that I was now late getting to an appointment. The workers were aware of this and it took @20 mins for them to fetch my car as they didn't tell me they were going to hose it down. I guess they were doing this to help, but I didn't want this and would have stopped them if I had realised what they were doing

all went ok no , real problems. only thing I don't like is the way the seat is always adjusted to right back . it must take someone almost as long to wind the seat back as it does to park the car . ok to adjust for length of legs. but I travel a lot and this is the only car park where the seat has been tilted right back.

Always book airport parking with FHR normally without any issues this time we had a problem. Only booked the car park on the 13th September staying from the 22nd September for 7 days. I have stayed at this park before was FSS but booked with FHR through Toad parking (agent). When I arrived at 04:30 I was told that they couldn't find my booking as FSS had gone bust back in March and they had taken over. The new name is CARe park. The man said he would need to re enter my details so after a little wait it was all done and the parking worked well. Waited a short time on our return car waiting for us, so ended up all working well the one question is why is it still booking as FSS.

Bit tricky to find at 3.00 a.m. due to the new road layout and the parking signage being a bit small but apart from that it's a great service that we've used a few times and will definitely use again.
