Wedding transportation is a critical thing to consider when preparing for a wedding. When looking for the wedding transportation, choose something that can reflect your style and personality. Below are some tips that will help you find the ideal transportation for the big day.
Choose a company in advance
If you plan on renting a limo, ensure that you contact the company at least three months before the big day. Find out the cost per hour and if there are any additional charges for mileage.
Provide the company with specific instructions on where you will be picked up and where the wedding will take place. It is a good idea to tell the company to arrive hours or some 30 minutes early for any given pickup. This will help you avoid any unforeseen delays that may negatively affect the wedding program.
Nothing is as warming as a couple arriving on time. It makes everybody feel comfortable and less stressful. You would not want to keep your guests waiting.
If you are using a helicopter or hot air balloon, ensure that there is adequate space that is free of buildings, power lines and other things that might cause harm to you or those around. Hot air balloons and helicopters require an ample landing space.
Inspect the car you will be using
At times, companies offer under maintained vehicles and lower the pricing to attract customers. This is why it is a good idea to ensure that you see the car and inspect it before choosing it for your wedding day.
Make sure that you are shown the car you will use during your wedding and not another similar car. Note any stains, rips, tears or anything else out of place that you feel worth mentioning before signing the contract.
What will happen if the car breaks down?
It is imperative that you ask the car owner about the steps that will be taken in case the car breaks down before or during your wedding. Find out if the vehicle owner or company has another vehicle in reserve to prevent any inconveniences.
What about insurance cover?
Does the car owner or company have wedding hire insurance and public liability insurance cover? If the answer is a yes, then it may be a good idea to consider the car owner or company.
Go for a reputable company
Choose a reputable car rental company which can offer reliable service. Don’t just choose a company because it is established for many years as the duration they have been in the industry does not mean that it has a good reputation.
Ask for recommendations
The easiest way to find a good wedding transportation company is asking around. If you have a family member or a trusted friend who had a wedding recently, ask him or her for some good recommendations of who they used on their special day.
Of all wedding essentials, transportation is considered the most crucial and tricky. A little delay or an inappropriate type of vehicle can not only ruin your wedding but waste your time, money and effort. It is, therefore, important that you consider the tips in this article.
