Phantom Hire: Powering Prestige at the Birmingham Commonwealth Games

The Commonwealth Games is a prestigious international multi-sport event involving athletes from the Commonwealth of Nations. In 2022, Birmingham had the honour of hosting the Commonwealth Games. The organising committee had the enormous task of ensuring every detail was perfectly planned and executed. Among the many aspects they needed to consider, transportation was vital to creating a world-class event. This is where Phantom Hire came into play.

Commonwealth Games Phantom Hire

Powering Elegance and Prestige

We were tasked with one of the most crucial and high-profile responsibilities – providing the Rolls Royce Dawns and Ghosts for this significant event. It was an opportunity to showcase our expertise, commitment, and dedication to serving our esteemed clients. We partnered closely with the Commonwealth directors, ensuring every detail met their requirements. The challenge was not just to deliver premium service but to sustain it throughout the games, maintaining the elegance and prestige synonymous with the Rolls Royce brand.

Working with the Commonwealth Directors

Communication and cooperation were paramount in executing this enormous task. We maintained close relationships with the directors, establishing clear lines of communication and ensuring we were always on the same page. We discussed schedules in detail, coordinated logistics, and confirmed specific requirements for each ride.

Our preparations included rigorous checks and inspections of all the vehicles to ensure they were in perfect condition. We understood that these cars were more than just transportation – they symbolised the event’s stature and an impression of the city of Birmingham to the world.

Driving for Royalty

One of the highlights of our involvement in the games was driving in front of the new King Consort, Charles, and Camilla. It was an honour to transport and be witnessed by the distinguished couple, providing them with the Rolls Royce stature and style befitting their status. This demanded precision, planning, and a dedicated team that could respond to any adjustments required quickly and effectively.

Our chauffeurs were briefed and trained in detail about the routes, backup plans, and security protocols. They were also trained in etiquette and decorum to maintain around the Royal couple. This reflected our dedication to the task at hand and our commitment to upholding the prestige of the Rolls Royce brand.

A Successful Endeavour

The Birmingham Commonwealth Games 2022 concluded with resounding success, and Phantom Hire is proud to have played a part in this historical event. We would like to express our gratitude to the Commonwealth directors for entrusting us with this responsibility. We are also thankful for the opportunity to serve Kings Consort Charles and Camilla, an experience that we will forever cherish.

This experience has deepened our dedication to providing unparalleled services to our clients. As we reflect on our involvement in the games, we are filled with pride and gratitude. We understand that our task was not just about providing cars; it was about representing the city of Birmingham, the Commonwealth Games, and the very ethos of Phantom Hire.

To our clients, we say, “Phantom Hire is not just about cars; it’s about an experience.” And we promise to continue delivering on that experience, every day, with every drive. As we move forward, we are excited about the future and the many opportunities it will bring.
