New Car Park – All Moved In!

We are now operating from our new site and have had a great response from our customers who have used the new facilities!

New Sentinel Car Park

If you haven’t been yet, why not book a nice holiday from LBIA just so you can sample the new car park?! ….maybe not, but when you do come back, you can rest assured that the parking side of your travels is now even more slick and straightforward than it was before.

Don’t forget, we have valeting and servicing facilities here at Sentinel as well, so any work that needs doing to your car can be carried out without the need for lifts to the garage or hire cars etc. Both the valeting and servicing centres complete their work to an extremely high standard and have long lists of loyal customers – give it a try if you haven’t already.


PalmaIt is testament to the smoothness of the changeover that one of the biggest issues we had to confront was the re-homing of Palma, the Sentinel cat.

Palma came to us in 1998 as a stray (or probably just lost) cat and we have been looking after her ever since. In 2000 she had 3 lovely kittens and they were relatively easy to find homes for, but re-homing the old girl herself at an age of anything over 15 wasn’t so easy!

A big thanks to one of our own Sentinel employees, Paul Greenhalf, who has now taken Palma home to live with his other 3 cats and the reports are that she has settled in very well!

New Car Park Works Near Completion

Sentinel Car Park Mk 2

Sentinel Car Park Extension

Over the last few months we have been very busy designing and building a brand new car park at our site near to Leeds Bradford International Airport.  Although the new site will not cater for any more cars than the old site, there will be some notable improvements to the operation, both behind the scenes and in the customer areas of the car park.

Some features of the new car park are as follows:

  • Enhanced Lighting

    The new car park will benefit from a comprehensive LED lighting scheme that will give excellent light levels across all the customer areas of the car park.

  • Protection From The Elements

    The main entrance way will a large protective canopy so you will be able to board the bus without getting wet!

  • Advanced Camera System

    With the help of our friends over at APH in Manchester, we have developed an entrance way camera system that will scan each car as it arrives with us checking it’s condition.

  • Large Booking-in Area

    The checking in desks will be much larger than in the existing site to cater for the peaks of incoming traffic.  The reception will also benefit from comfortable customer seating, luggage scales so you can check your bags aren’t overweight and vending machines providing refreshments.

We hope to be fully operational in our new car park in early November.  Don’t forget, there is no need to worry about directions as the entrance to the new site is in exactly the same location as the existing car park.

We look forward to seeing you in our new premises soon!
