Perfect Classic Wedding Car If you’re looking for wedding day transportation that is classic, elegant and stylish, then it’s important to find the right limousine service company. Whether you want to enjoy a romantic ride to the reception with your new spouse, or have a mobile champagne toast with your wedding party, the right limo service makes all the difference. This article offers some pointers to ensure that you receive the perfect vintage car or limousine, professional chauffeurs and VIP service at affordable prices.

Licensed & Insured: It is crucial to select a limo company that is trustworthy, licensed and insured. Always request a copy of the company’s limousine insurance and license. Many people are unaware that booking a limousine that does not have limousine insurance will leave you jointly liable in case of an accident. Because more than 90% of the vintage limo companies in Southern California are operating without a Public Utility Commission (PUC) regulated limousine license and valid limousine insurance, it is vital to find a trustworthy and insured company.

Quality: Another important step in selecting your wedding vehicle is to conduct a full inspection prior to your booking. Many of these cars don’t look nearly as nice in person as they do on the companies’ web sites. A quality vintage wedding car should always be mechanically safe and sound, and aesthetically clean, without wear and tear. Some important things to look for during your inspection are: A properly working AC, windows and doors, clean interior and exterior and properly working lights.

Punctuality: Being late is the number one complaint against limo companies. Therefore, you should choose a company with an on time guarantee that will email you the contact information of your driver and the itinerary in advance.

Reputation: A company’s reputation is of utmost importance and should be a key element in your decision making process. Choose a company with a stellar reputation and with at least an “A” rating with the Better Business Bureau. Select a company that has excellent testimonials about its vehicles and service. Also, look for authentic testimonials that have both first and last names, and preferably dates of service.

Pricing: To avoid being stuck with hidden fees, always request an “all inclusive” price quote. Many companies have hidden fees, which may include sales tax, refueling charges, license fees, or PUC fees. Also, avoid other unnecessary charges by being aware of how the company charges for overtime. It is best to avoid those that have overtime surcharge rates or round everything to the nearest hour. Try selecting a company that has a Price Match policy.

When selecting your vehicle, think of all the memories that you will have from your special day. Selecting the perfect classic wedding car should be one of the biggest “hits” of your wedding, as it will provide fabulous photo and video opportunities that you can cherish forever!
