And if the company you’re speaking to doesn’t provide a driver? Well, they may not be such a good match after all.
3: What are Your Contingency Plans?
Any good wedding car company will go all out to ensure that everything runs smoothly from start to finish but feel free to ask them exactly what steps they’ll take to ensure a successful day.
- Do they inspect their vehicle before putting it out on the road, making sure it has enough fuel and water and that it is performing perfectly?
- Do they meticulously plan out the route to get you there on time?
- Do they come up with back-up routes in case there’s an unexpected accident or other delays on the road?
- What will happen if your driver takes ill on the morning of your wedding or if there’s an unforeseen problem with the car?
Look to hire a company who guarantee to strive for the best yet have plans in case should something happen so that, no matter what, you still have a perfect wedding day.
