On the eleventh day of planning, my planners found for me…
It’s day eleven of our “12 Days of Planning,” and we are here to discuss all of your transportation needs! Whether it’s a horse drawn carriage, getaway vehicle, or trolley car you’re looking for, there are a multitude of reasons you may choose to rent some sort of transportation for your event.
- Punctual Timing: No matter what transportation service you choose to work with, these guys are trained in mapping out the best routes and arriving to any event on time. As planners, we assist in building a “Day-of” timeline or itinerary for all necessary parties and vendors, informing them of the times they should arrive on location(s). With that being said, hiring a driver is a huge pro, as it can relieve some of the stresses of trying to depart on time to avoid traffic.
- No Need for Maps: Just as transportation services are known for being punctual, they are also great at finding the best routes to lead them to their destination(s). Having said that, you’re not expected to pull out a map or hook up GPS in hopes that it will avoid any traffic or road closures. Instead, you can rest assured knowing that your transportation is on the way and will arrive on time.
- Safe Travels: Being able to enjoy your event to the fullest is crucial. You and your planners have worked long hours to plan this, and now it’s time to let loose and appreciate your work. For that, hiring a transportation service can be important because it ensures safe travels for you and other possible guests. Now, you can have confidence in knowing that you have a designated driver at all times, who will get you where you need to be, safely.
As you can see, there are many substantial reasons as to why you may choose to rent transportation for your unique event. With that in mind, let’s discuss some of the factors to consider when hiring a transportation service for your occasion.
- Budget: When it comes to renting transportation for your unique event, we encourage you to set a limit on how much you would like to spend on the overall product. As planners, we are here to assist in helping manage your budget, as well as prioritizing the most important elements of your event. With that being said, depending on your budget, we can aid in finding those vendors within your price range.
- Reason for Renting: Looking for a shuttle service to haul guests to and from their hotel(s)? How about a limousine service to carry you and your wedding party away from the event? Whatever it is that you’re looking for, there is a transportation service that is able to accommodate your needs and expectations, and we can help find them for you!
- Number of Riders: Depending on the reason for renting a transportation service for your event, it might be important to consider the number of guests expected to ride. Whether it 2 people or a group of 100, this tells us how many vehicles and/or round trips will be needed to accommodate all riders. And knowing that will help us find the perfect vendor(s) for you.
- Style of Transportation: Looking to rent a double decker party bus for you and your guests? Perhaps you prefer to be swept away in a 1948 Ford De Luxe like Danny and Sandy? Whatever you choose, you’re pretty much guaranteed to get some epic photos!
Now, it’s time we find that perfect transportation service for you, so you’re ready to drive off into the sunset!
