A pink rickshaw is proving a hit for alternative wedding car hire
It may not be to everyone’s taste but for some brides a motorised pink rickshaw is the only way to arrive on your big day. Move over limo hire, chauffeur driven Bentley’s and vintage wedding cars, there’s a new kid in town and she goes by the name of Lady Penelope.
The customised pink tuk-tuk, as it’s known in the Far East, is in high demand with requests from customers to transport them to everything from school proms to weddings to hen and stag dos. The 3 wheeler was imported direct from Thailand where it is commonly used in the cities as a form of taxi transportation. The 6 seater novelty car has been specially customised to deal with the wetter British climate and has had special side panels installed to help it cope with the rain.
Car hire boss Steve Garforth from Royton in Rochdale, happened to come across the unusual vehicle on the internet, “and just had to get it.” He went on to say “It’s the only one in the North West and is just so different” and it’s certainly managing to pull in the crowds.
On a recent trip to Deansgate in Manchester the pink party rickshaw was flooded by passersby all clambering to get a closer look at the one-of-a-kind vehicle. It also attracts a lot of attention from visitors to the Royton car show room where it’s on display.
So if you’ve been scratching your head trying to come up with a creative choice of vehicle to transport you to your prom, wedding, or hen do, you may have just found your answer!
