A Quick Guide to Hiring a Vintage Car for Your Wedding

Vintage cars are very popular for weddings, and if you are about to get married soon and are planning to use one on your special day, then you should start your preparations as early as now. This is because classic vehicles that are being rented out for events are often booked months before they are to be used. The high demand for vintage cars can cause you problems if you don’t make your arrangements in advance, first because you may run out of good choices of vehicles, and second the rental rates may increase as the date of use comes closer.

So how should you hire a vintage car rental in Singapore? To save you the hassle, here is a quick guide:

  1. Canvas by means of reviews and reputations.

When searching for a vintage car rental company, you don’t necessarily have to visit each establishment you find. You may only end up disappointed and frustrated when you don’t see the car that you want or if you don’t get nail a good price on the vehicle. Rather, you may want to start by reviewing companies that have already made a good name in the industry.

You can check out customer and client reviews on websites, Facebook pages, and blogs that talk about vintage car rental services. You may also inquire with friends who have recently rented a vintage car and ask them about their feedback on the company they dealt with. From these reviews and ratings, you are able to choose which company to go to when renting a vehicle for your wedding.

  1. Check vehicle conditions.

Once you have chosen a company, you can pay it a visit and check the cars they are offering. You should likewise check the condition of the vehicle, if it is in great condition. You not only have to inspect the interior covers and cushions or the exteriors, but also its mechanical parts and body. This is because you have to make sure that you are able to ride comfortably in the vehicle, and that you will not be faced with any form of mishap on the way to the wedding venue.

By inspecting the vehicle, the company is also alerted to keep tabs on the car so that it would be in good condition by the time you use it.

  1. Size of the vehicle.

Most vintage cars that are used for weddings are good only for four passengers at the most, including the driver, a front seat passenger, and the bride and groom at the back. You may want to check out cars of this size for your main bridal vehicle, but if you think you would also like to use a vintage car for your entourage, then it may be best that you also look at bigger classic vehicles, such as Kombi vans for them.

  1. Early reservations.

To secure the vehicle that you want to use for your wedding, most vintage car rentals in Singapore recommend that you pay a deposit, so that your chosen vehicle would no longer be booked on your prescribed date. Deposits are usually non-refundable, but they assure you that your vehicle would no longer be booked by someone else during the week of your wedding.

  1. License and insurances

Car rental companies usually have insurance for their vehicles, but you better check with your chosen service provider first. This is because there are also those that do not have insurance, thus you are liable if an accident happens while the car is under your use. Better check the coverage of the insurance so that you know to what extent you are liable when it comes to damages.
