Kent Wedding Car

Thinking of hiring a wedding car? Unless you’ve had prior experience of booking one before, there can be many makes and models out there to choose from. Knowing the right one to pick for your big day is important and takes serious consideration. Here are four questions to ask when hiring a wedding car.

Can I See The Wedding Cars Available?

You’d never buy a car that you haven’t seen in the flesh, so why start when it comes to hiring a wedding car? It’s important that you have the opportunity to see the car that you’re going to get taken to and from said venue as well as to any other locations you might see fit. By seeing the wedding car itself, you can make an informed decision on whether it’s right for you. For any type of classic car hire, Kent is a great place to find the right car or vehicle for your wedding day. Always ask to see the car before investing in your wedding car as it’s one that is likely going to be another expenditure that costs you money. That’s not something you want to lose or regret paying for because you didn’t see the car beforehand. This way, you’re not disappointed.

How Many People Can Fit In The Car?

Another question that you’ll want answering is how many people can fit in the car itself. It’s all dependent on how many are going to be travelling in the car, whether it’s just you and your partner, or more. Each car is going to be different depending on the amount of room it has too and so you want to ask about space. With a classic Mercedes hire, you can comfortably fit the bride and groom without too much hassle. If you want additional people in the car, then you’re going to want to look for something bigger.

Is The Car Insured?

A Kent wedding car needs to be properly licensed and insured. Even if you’re travelling a short distance, it’s important to be covered in case of an accident happening. The wedding car supplier should have the right insurance to cover anyone who steps into the car. If you are knowingly getting into a car that hasn’t been licensed or insured properly, then you are tempting fate and for something to go wrong. As vehicles get older, they become more of a maintenance and so you want to be sure that what you’re getting into is safe and secure too.

Is My Date Available For Hiring The Car?

For the car itself, there’s going to be plenty of other weddings happening throughout the year and on the same day as you. It’s important to make sure that your date is available and that you’ve got the car you want. Booking a car is something you want to do as soon as you are able to avoid disappointment.

Asking the right questions when it comes to the wedding car is important, so make sure you get the answers you need.
