Disruptive tech startup ‘Anything for Hire’ enters the UK hire industry

A new, Cardiff based tech start-up, is aiming to follow in the footsteps of success stories like Uber and Airbnb, shaking up the UK hire industry with their innovative approach.

The process for hiring a service, whether a limousine for a night out or a bouncy castle for a children’s party has proven to be a tedious task, time and time again. With everyone constantly on the go, who really has the time to spend hours on the web searching for the best deals? And what are you to do when you find the perfect deal only to find that the service is fully booked or it’s not available for your chosen date?

This is where new marketplace, Anything for Hire comes in, aiming to follow in the footsteps of success stories like Uber and Airbnb, shaking up and revolutionising the UK hire industry with their innovative approach.

Anyting for HIre search

Founded by technology entrepreneur, Tej Randeva, the idea behind Anything for Hire was born when he noticed there was no easy way to compare different quotes from various hire companies during the hiring process. With 15 years experience in the hire and IT industry, Tej was able to identify a clear consumer need in this sector. He saw a lot of potential for a hire service that can bring you all the results in one place. Thus, Anything for Hire was founded.

Created by an experienced IT development team, they have worked extensively on new cutting-edge technology which aims to not only connect consumers to their chosen hire company but give them the freedom to look at different quotes, compare real-time prices and make big savings in the process.

As Anything for Hire continues to grow and change the way the hire industry works, there will be a growing number of people behind the scenes making sure everything runs smoothly.

Tej commented:

“The demand and prospects for anyone wanting to pursue a career in tech is sky high so we will constantly be looking for new talent we can bring onto the development team at Anything for Hire. We are planning to recruit a team of ambitious & motivated people to achieve some great results at our Cardiff HQ”.

It’s great news on the B2B end too, with exciting opportunities for localised businesses to reach an entirely new set of customers, along with a free, easy to use booking system. This will allow small businesses to become more efficient and responsive so consumers will no longer need to call to know the availability of their services.

So if you’re a hire business looking to expand to new territories or just someone looking to hire something for an event, we’re certain we can accommodate your every need.

Steph Woods from X Factor hitched a ride with Cars for Stars

Twice X Factor evictee, Steph Woods, is definitely one to look out for! Last week she posted a picture on Twitter sprawled inside one of our Rolls Royce Phantoms! Things are definitely looking up for Steph and Cars for Stars was thrilled to be a part of her journey.

The young liverpudlian has had an epic musical adventure, especially when thinking back to her X Factor experiences. She first auditioned

for the ITV show at the very young of 14, back in 2007. Progressing all the way to judges houses, mentored by Sharon Osborne, her dream was then crushed. Claiming she was too young to handle the pressure, Sharon

regrettably decided to take her off the show.

Steph Woods returned to the show this year on learning of Sharon’s return to the judging panel. Having all her memories resurfaced she told that this would be her last shot at the X Factor, pulling on Sharon’s heartstrings throughout the series.


When her 2013 X Factor

voyage ended at boot camp the country was devastated to see the back of her, especially Mrs O.

The rock stars wife spilled out her emotions towards Steph on the show and continues to talk about her in the press. In an interview entitled ‘My X Factor Special Moment’ featured in Women & Home Magazine Sharon presented her emotions on the page.

“Every so often an act wanders in that reminds me why I love doing it”

Sharon talks of Steph’s return to the show after 6 years from seeing her.

‘Fast-forward six years and she turned up to audition again this year, it was such an incredible moment, really humbling.”

We can safely say that Cars for Stars was greatly honoured to work with an up and coming British star like Steph!

All-German Champion’s League Final looking likely

Uefa-Champions-LeagueWith just two matches left before the UEFA Champion’s League Final on May 25th, it’s going to be a tough couple of games for Real Madrid and Barcelona, who will both have to really pull their socks up if they’re going to make get a much-coveted place in the final. After having been beaten by Borussia Dortmund and Bayern Munich 4-1 and 4-0 respectively, both teams now have their work cut out if they don’t want to get knocked out. The first of the penultimate two matches (Real Madrid v Dortmund) kicks off tonight at 7:45pm from the Santiago Bernabéu stadium. After gaining one away goal in Germany, Real Madrid stand a slight chance of making a comeback, whereas the likelihood of Barcelona knocking out Bayern Munich at tomorrow’s game is nearly negligible.

So with an all-German final looking highly likely, thousands of Germans will be flocking to the capital for the big game, which is again being held in Wembley.

The luxury car hire industry goes through the roof during events like this, especially when two non-British teams reach the final of such a prestigious tournament, and it’s being held in Wembley. Public transport can be unreliable and hectic, overcrowded and inconvenient, so many turn to luxury car hire to get them to and from the stadium for the match, or to and from the airport.

Cars For Stars is the UK’s leading luxury car hire company, and covers everywhere in the UK. So if you’re one of the lucky fans going to cheer on your team at the Champion’s League Final 2013, have you considered hiring one of Cars For Stars’ chauffeur-driven vehicles to add that extra bit of luxury to your day?

Rare Aston Martin sells for £1.23 million at classic car auction

An extremely rare Aston Martin sports car, once owned by the manager of Phil Collins, was the biggest seller at a recent Bonhams car auction in Buckinghamshire when the hammer went down at £1.23 million. The highly sought after Aston Martin DB4GT Zagato Santion ll Coupe is one of only four in existence, making it an extremely collectable item.

The vintage motor is the result of an collaboration in the 60’s between luxury car maker Aston Martin and Zagato. 19 DBRGT models were manufactured between 1961 and 1963, although they had planned to make 23 of the cars.

Thirty years on, the four unfinished cars which should have been completed in the 1960’s along with the other DBRGT 19 vehicles, were sent down to Zagato’s head quarters in Milan to be completed. While these four cars were designed to be direct copies of the 60’s sports car, the end result was that they were in fact, improved models of the DBRGT run of vehicles originally created.

As one of the only four vehicles of its kind, it’s not surprising the exclusive and tremendously rare Aston Martin was finally sold for a whopping £1.23 million at the Bonhams auction this week.

A total of 46 Aston Martin vehicles went under the hammer as part of the Bonham auction held at the Aston Martin Works, selling for a collective total of £6.5 million, which is a new record for the auctioneer’s Aston Martin sale.
