Everyone wants a seamless and magical wedding day, and making sure the right people are there to witness the moment is a must – but have you thought about how your guests will get to your wedding and leave safely at the end of the night? The right transportation can make all of the difference between a well-managed wedding and a chaotic event! It’s important that you put in some research before making any official decisions toward your wedding limo or party bus. Whether you’re looking for a shuttle service for guests, a flashy exit vehicle, or the best solution to transport the wedding party from one destination to the next, the right transportation is vital. If you’re not sure where to start, here are four questions that will lead you down the right path!
Are They Familiar with Your Venue?
You may have noticed, but there are a lot of wedding venues in Raleigh and the surrounding areas. When transporting a group between the venue and different destinations, there are many details for a chauffeur to consider, such as where they are able to park, plus the best pickup and drop off locations. If a chauffeur is unfamiliar with your venue, they could easily spend up to 45 minutes trying to figure out these details – and ain’t nobody got time for that on wedding day! This is why we always recommend that you choose a company that is experienced with both your venue and your picture destinations.
Can you View the Vehicle in Person?
If you want to be 100% sure about the transportation choice for your wedding, it’s incredibly important to schedule a visit to view the vehicle before making a deposit or signing a contract. Some companies use stock photographs of limousines and party buses that they don’t actually own, so you’ll never be sure about what will show up on your wedding day. It will give you great peace of mind to view the vehicle in person. This is also the perfect time to ask any questions you might have and get a feel for their customer service.
Does the Company Have an Easily Accessible Website?
This may not seem like an important step in your research, but it can say a lot about the company. For example, a company probably isn’t installing state of the art equipment or updating their vehicles if their website looks like it was made 15 years ago. Ideally, a website should be mobile responsive and easy to use so you can find all of the information that you need. Similarly, if the company isn’t great about responding to calls and emails in a timely manner, that doesn’t bode well for your wedding timeline.
Is There Muddy Language in the Contract?
Contracts are vital for all of your wedding vendor decisions since this is how everybody gets on the same page! A truly transparent transportation company will let you know about all fees and potential charges upfront. Be on the lookout for and language about fees for tip, tax, fuel, or mileage when you look over the sample contract. It’s a good idea to be completely informed on what counts as damage and how much they charge, as well.
