3 Important Tips for Renting a Vintage Car for Your Wedding

It’s about making an impressive entrance.

Coming out from a vintage car creates an air of class and sophistication for the couples. It will look amazing both in real time and in photos, which is why couples are willing to invest for this awesome experience. No matter how busy the couples get in preparing for the wedding, they still take the time to look for vintage cars that will complete their event.

However, with the little free time they have they can’t afford to make the wrong choice. This is why we create this article to provide couples with quick and important tips. This way, they can ensure the success and style when it comes to their vintage car experience. Let’s discuss how to accomplish that:

1. Book as early as possible

One way to ensure a proper choice and an awesome experience is to book a vintage car as early as possible. In fact, many couples hire a classic car at least one year before their wedding. This way they can choose the best instead of settling for whatever they can find at the last minute. Booking early allows couples to have more time to consider several options. Also, it gets stressful if this one crucial detail is set aside until the wedding day is fast approaching. It’s good to take care of this early on to avoid the rush and stress later on.

In your case, perhaps you and/or your partner right now are still unsure whether to hire a classic car or not. It might help to ask the company if there’s a cancellation fee or a refundable fee in case you changed your mind. This is much better than booking the car at the last minute because there’s a guaranteed beautiful car you can use for your wedding day.

2. Choose a company with a solid reputation

Weddings have the highest requirements when it comes to successful execution. Every detail should be perfect especially when it comes to transport. If something goes wrong (e.g. vehicle or the air conditioning is malfunctioning, the company can’t be contacted or the cars are suddenly not available), it will ruin the entire experience and celebration.

Most likely you paid full attention when choosing the wedding food, decorations, invitations and the photo and video coverage (and which companies should provide these services). These are all important details in ensuring your wedding day is perfect. But what about the wedding car? Will you choose the company that offers the lowest prices (but their reputation is questionable)?

It’s always recommended to choose a company with a long and solid reputation. After all, a reputable company stayed in business for long because of its commitment to results and customer satisfaction. This also means that they have a steady stream of clients that completely trust them especially in the most important details that should never go wrong no matter what.

It’s a good idea to check out if the company directors are car enthusiasts and members of a car club. This gives you a good idea of their commitment to  car maintenance.

For example, here at Australia in Style (founded in 1995) thousands of patrons utilise our service each year. We had a humble start but today we are proud to say that we’re having now have a global clientele. Through the years we’ve become known for reliably providing vintage cars for weddings and other events and ensuring that all the vehicles are in excellent condition.The directors are long standing members of the Rolls-Royce Owners Club.

3. Inspect the vehicle’s condition

Once you have chosen a reputable vintage car rental company, it’s now time to focus on the vehicle. You have to make sure that the automobile is in excellent condition and the vehicle you’re inspecting is the exact same car you’ll be using for your wedding day.

What should you inspect? It’s important to look at the condition of the car’s body, air conditioning, lights, doors and windows. It’s also good to check the car’s exterior and interior and see if everything’s well maintained (a well maintained car says a lot about its owner). You can do this inspection when you’re booking or days before the wedding (to give you better peace of mind as the day approaches).

What about your options? How do you want your stunning entry to look like? Although booking online is now possible, it still helps to look at the vehicles up close so you’ll really know what to expect. Perhaps it’s too small or over the top for you, or the vehicle doesn’t just feel right (although it’s entirely perfect and classy). Whichever is the reason, it’s good to know these details early on before the exact wedding day. Also, inspecting the vehicle in person gives you and your partner opportunities to practise getting in and out of the car. This could help you perfect your movements and impressive entrance.
