If the Bridal Car Service is Cheap, There Must Be Something Wrong.
Think about it. A quality motor vehicle costs a lot to maintain. This is particularly the case with classic motor vehicles. If a bridal car company is offering their wedding cars for a low price, then it stands to reason that they will not have the margin to maintain there vehicles at a high standard. If that is the case, then anything could (and sometimes does) go wrong.
Questions to Ask when hiring wedding limousines and classic bridal cars in Sydney
What Happens If The Wedding Cars Break Down?
This question is extremely relevant, and as we have discussed previously, the issue of spare cars is not the right solution. That’s why we spend a fortune restoring & maintaining our bridal cars. Their beauty is not only skin deep. Sure, our cars look great, but fastidious attention to detail when it comes to the mechanical condition of our bridal cars is of paramount importance.
How Long Have They Been Trading?
Here today, gone tomorrow could be an apt description of many businesses. Wedding cars are largely somewhat of a part-time cottage industry: sometimes it seems that anyone with a car wants to set up as a wedding car operator. Unfortunately reality sets in soon enough – eventually they run out of money and close their doors. When that happens people are going to get hurt. So when you choose a wedding car service look for longevity. You’ll be pleased to know I have been in the industry now for more than 20 years and run a very successful business.
- How Experienced Are They With Weddings?
I am the wedding car specialist. I know about all the little things that can be the difference between making your day an outstanding success or a dismal failure. Another point to consider: I am a full time operator, but still a family business. I mention this because many bridal car operators are part-time hobbyists and have less to lose. They haven’t made the ultimate commitment. On the other hand I have made the commitment. To say I am very motivated to ensure your experience with us is ‘just perfect’ is an understatement. My future is dependent on it.
- How Reliable Are They?
By all means, check out other bridal car companies. But make sure they are reliable and will keep their promises. Ask to see their references from happy customers. Have a look at their wedding cars. Are they in pristine condition? If the bridal cars haven’t been well maintained then you could experience a problem on the day. Ask if they are full time operators (a good way to tell is to ask if you can inspect their vehicles on week days).
After all, you haven’t booked your reception with a part time reception house, or bought your dress from a hobbyist. So why jeopardise your wedding day by engaging cheap or dubious bridal car operators?
