There's so much to be accounted for when planning a wedding, one of the biggest anxieties is letting something slip under the radar! However, with technology and social media in this day and age, it's easier than ever to get connected to resources made specifically for those planning weddings. While it seems like there's constantly a new feature to add to your wedding like the recent trends of photo booths and candy buffets, there's an aspect of weddings that has consistently remained important. We're talking about the transportation!

Reserving the right transportation for your wedding is extremely important to the execution of your plans. The smallest interference can really shake things up! This is why it's important to choose a company that has a reputation for providing exception service to weddings from time management skills to customer service. With all of the different choices available in Philadelphia, it can be hard to make a decision. We're here with some tips on how to choose a transportation service that you can feel confident in.

Size up

Did you know that transportation companies don't set their own sizes when it comes to passenger capacities? The department of transportation is responsible for this, and they often don't allow more than 14 inches per person. Most teenagers require larger seat areas than this, so you can imagine how it could triple with someone in a special dress. Be sure to consider a few vehicle sizes up if you're looking for a spacious experience when you're on board!

Ask to see the vehicles

When you're browsing websites, it's not uncommon to come across vehicle pictures that look too good to be true. Sometimes, this can be the case! This is why it's important to ask to come view the limo or party bus you plan on renting before putting down a deposit. A trustworthy company will have no problem showing you the vehicle on one of their off days. A shady company will avoid the subject at all costs.

Read over the contract

Another common practice in the transportation industry is to add in extra charges at the last minute. This can come in the form of taxes, mileage, or gratuity. To avoid miscommunication, be careful when you're reading over the contract.

Following these suggestions will lead to you the most transparent transportation choice for your wedding in Philadelphia. If you're looking for more information, all you have to do is click here. Your special day will run like a well oiled machine with the addition of a party bus or limousine!
