A brief History of Hire Herbie:

Hire Herbie was founded in 2005 when current Co-Owner Duncan Thorpe spotted a 'Herbie' VW Beetle up for sale. With the idea of offering something a bit different for events, weddings and civil ceremonies, Hire Herbie was born.

Herbie was purchased from a gentleman in Norwich who had won the car in a raffle at the 2005 Volksworld show for the grand sum of a £15 raffle ticket! The previous owner of Herbie who had owned him for 25 years decided to donate the car to the Volksworld show to raise money for the survivors of the Tsunami disaster which happened in December 2004.

We bought the car from the winner and the rest is history......

In 2010 the decision was taken to carry out a body off restoration on Herbie to make him look his best again and he now looks better than ever. We also fitted a hidden stereo so that you can supply us with a CD, USB stick or an ipod to play your music on the way to the church or registry office. Having operated since 2005 we are well known in the industry and have an impecable reputation, working with major clients and private individuals and also in association with agencies who demand excellence.

Hire Herbie and you will not be disappointed.
