    Default Contractor's car park @ Vodafone Newbury HQ..??

    They used to have a separate contractor car park (first exit from first roundabout in HQ) long back. Now I checked google map looks like that road ends in a gated field!

    Any recent contractors in Newbury HQ, how you manage to park if you are working @ HQ.What are the options and how costly are those options.?

    I have seen old messages, not seen anything new how contractors working in HQ are managing it..?

    The contractors car park was closed a few years ago.
    Try Shaw social club, £2 a day - envelope through door and is just a short walk from the site.
    Friday is better as the site barrier is not enforced so I park in one of the main car parks.

    Thanks a lot for this update. I can see Shaw social club is very close and I am sure there will be some shortcuts to HQ as well. I suppose you mean I need prior agreement with them and pay fee by ' envelope through door'.

    Good to see Friday is trouble free, hopefully they will not suddenly change their policy. Thanks a lot for this feedback. This is super helpful. thanks.

    No prior agreement needed...just your reg number on the envelope so they know the car has been paid for. If not you may well get a 'little note' on your windscreen

    Thanks a lot

    Rate mentioned £2/day is it present rate or past rate..? If it is past rate, can anyone confirm current rate..? Also is it safe to park my 'Lambo' there..?

    If you've already got a contract there, speak to your client contact and ask them, but try not to do it the same way you do here as they might not be impressed.

    Totally this. You could even try the agent. They should be pretty clued up about this type of on boarding as every single contractor will be in the same situation.
