I used them a couple of times a few years ago and they were OK. It is a bit of a hike from the parking to the terminals whichcan eb frustrating if, like me, you tend to leave things last minute.

When I flew regularly from Heathrow I used to use a company called Heathrow Chauffeur Park (020 8897 2313 I think) - it was a one man band who had access to secure premises for parking your car. The beauty of it was that I would meet him at the terminal and he would pick the car up from me, then meet me with the car when I landed again. Really convenient and it usually worked out no more expensive than using the heathrow car parks.
I don't know if he is still in business but if you google 'Heathrow Chauffeur parking' you will find a few other companies doing the same sort of thing.

Just a thought, have you ever considered getting a private hire car to/from the airport? Robbie and I do this when we are flying out to Turkey, it works out no more expensive than the airport parking charges, there is no hike from/to your car and, best of all, if you get back at stupid o clock you don't have to drive.

My wife & have used Purple Parking at Heathrow a few times in the past, with no problems. Even arriving back in the early morning we had no issues with them picking us up at T4, but that was a few (4+) years ago though.
