With the complicated steps that go into wedding planning, one of the biggest fears is skipping over an important detail. An overlooked vendor that ties a wedding together is the method of transportation. A look at the page of results for wedding transportation vendors is enough to intimidate anybody! How are you supposed to know who to trust with this aspect of your important day? We're here with three tips so you find the best wedding transportation for your needs.
Pay attention to details that matter
This might seem vague, but look for red flags in the start of your search for transportation. First, any limo or party bus company with an ancient website isn't one to consider. If they can't create an easy to use web experience, it doesn't bode well for their customer service. The same can be said about the modern features within the vehicle. Second, if you don't see any clues on their website that they specialize in weddings, move on. It's not worth the risk to trust an elegant wedding to a company that mainly deals with nights out and bar hopping.
Schedule an in-person tour
Asking if you can come look at vehicles before placing a deposit is a sure fire way to separate the good from the bad. Shady companies will avoid this at all costs! You're looking for transparency, as it makes a big difference in their trustworthiness. When you look at a vehicle in person, you know exactly what to expect. No surprises on your big day!
View the contract
We always recommend signing contracts, and it's no different with transportation companies. The contract is where you will find tricky things like extra charges in the form of fuel and tip. There will be language about what they consider damage and how much they will charge the card on file. You don't want to end up getting charged a ridiculous amount for something as trivial as a missing stereo cord while you're on your honeymoon!
