Essential Questions to Ask Before Booking A Wedding Car
Transportation is one of the crucial things to well plan for when preparing for your wedding. Right from getting the best car hire to get your wedding cars, vehicles that suit your wedding theme and ensuring the cars fall under budget of the item, booking a wedding car is not that easy. However, you can ease this process by consulting the car rental service provider that you have chosen about what you are not sure of. We have come along answering a lot of questions from our clients regarding wedding car hire in Kampala and most of them are no different. Here are some of the things you may want to know before making a final choice of your preferred wedding cars;
How many cars should we hire for our wedding day?
To know how many cars, you should hire for your wedding, you will need to first know how big your party is. The smaller the party, the fewer the number of cars and the bigger the party, the more the cars you need to hire. The minimum number you can hire is ‘one car’ to carry the bride and her father to the ceremony. However, you need to provide transport to some of your people, therefore you could hire about 4 cars that is if you are working under a tight budget.
What is the right time for booking the wedding car?
It is advisable to make bookings for your wedding car at least a month earlier. If possible, book as early as you start organizing for the wedding. This helps you not to miss out on getting your dream or preferred car due to unavailability when you book late. Last minute booking could also make you rent the car at a higher price.
Can I hire the car for self drive or they must be driven by the rental company chauffeurs?
Most of our luxury wedding cars are chauffeur driven and this service is included in the rental fee as well as that of fuel if the wedding is in Kampala. However, cars that accommodate only two people such as the Mercedes convertible and Rolls Royce are available for self drive. You can therefore hire one of these if you want to drive your bride.
Who is transported with who?
The bride and his father travel in the same car while her maids and mother also in their car. from the groom’s side, the groom travels with his grooms men plus his parents. But as most things are continuously changing, you can do your thing the best way you love it.
For how long do I have use of the car for my wedding?
Car rental companies that are nice to their clients normally let them have the car for the whole day. Hire your wedding cars from such companies so that you can relax and carry out your event in peace. This is one of the must ask questions when booking for your wedding car.
Do we need to hire a wedding car when our ceremony and reception are in the same place?
Yes, you can hire your dream car or any beautiful car so that it is used during photography. They offer awesome backdrops for photography and videos. Wedding photos in and in front of a vintage, Mercedes or limousine stand out among the rest of the photos.
Who decorates the wedding cars?
Decoration fee of the car is not inclusive of the hire rate. Inform your decoration team that they will also decorate your wedding cars, so we avail them early morning so that everything is done on time.
Does the distance of the journey affect the cost of hiring the cars?
Yes, the price of hiring the car is given according to the mileage. However, there is a fixed price for each type of wedding car for clients with the ceremony and venue within Kampala.
How can we save money on our wedding?
You can hire a few cars to save on transport expenses of car rental so that you will do more trips collecting the guests to the reception. However, this method is efficient if the venue is quite close. Instead of hiring many cars, you can use one car to transfer a number of people by making multiple trips. This saves you the higher expense of renting more cars.
What happens if the car breaks down?
With the expertise we have in hiring wedding cars, we guarantee you to offer bridal cars that are in a perfect mechanical condition to avoid inconveniences on your big day. We highly consider your safety, comfort and time management as a priority. However, in case of the sometimes-inevitable breakdown, we intervene immediately by sending in a car replacement and keep your event flowing.
At what time does the car arrive for the ceremony?
It is safe and convenient to arrive at the departure location early enough. So, we make sure that the drivers and cars arrive at the earlier agreed upon point at least 20 minutes before the departure time. For those having their reception venues in areas that require passing through busy roads that may have heavy traffic, we need to have enough time to drive through such areas to the venue so that the ceremony moves on without much interference because of time.
What if we want to cancel the wedding car booking?
Get to know about the cancellation policy of your suppliers before you book. Most car rental companies ask for a deposit when you want to book for wedding cars and this fee is nonrefundable. Some companies even ask for extra cost if you cancel in 2-3 months before your wedding day. It is therefore important to consider making use of wedding insurance to cover you just in case you need to cancel the wedding.
