Frequently Asked Questions

Do you do other events apart from weddings?

Yes. Both cars are available for hens or buck nights, engagements, birthdays, anniversaries, photo shoots - just about anything!

How far do you travel?

I service Melbourne and surrounds. Any event located 70 kilometres outside of Melbourne CBD will incur a travel fee. If you have an event in regional Victoria, please contact me for a specialised quote.

What happens if it rains and I have booked the convertible 356?

Unfortunately the 356 is only suited for clear conditions. In the event of heavy rain, I will be in touch 48 hours prior to let you know the Beetle will be used as a replacement. This is to keep you dry and comfortable!

 

Are your cars for sale?

You’d be surprised how often I get asked this! No, they are not. These cars mean a lot to me, and I am proud to say they have found their forever home.

What is your payment process?

If you are making a booking one month from your event, I will need full payment as soon as possible. This is to quickly secure your date with me. If the event is longer than a month away, I will require a $100 deposit at time of booking. One month from the event, I will need the outstanding amount to be paid.

Can I touch and sit in the cars?

Yes, you can, but I kindly ask that you respect the cars. They are a classic car, and they are prone to damage more than modern cars. If they are damaged, please understand you will be receiving a repair bill.

 

Do you have wedding accessories to add to the cars?

Yes. I have accessories such as "Just Married" signs, tin cans, flowers, and of course ribbon. These are offered free of charge. If they are not to your liking, you are welcome to add your own.

Do you do night events?

Yes. On top of the hourly rate, there will be a twilight charge from 8pm Sunday to Thursday, and 10pm Friday and Saturday.

Can I book both cars for the same event?

Of course! Please be aware the hourly rate is for each car.

 

What if the car breaks down?

In the unfortunate and rare chance this happens, you will be offered a full refund.

Are you a qualified driver?

Yes. Along with my standard Victorian drivers licence, I also have a CPV licence, which is a commercial passenger vehicle licence.

I don’t know which car to book. Can you help?

Sure! The 356 only has one passenger seat. It is best suited for a groom as the convertible roof will be down, so keep in mind hair (and a dress) can get blown around. The Beetle can seat three passengers, and is most suited for a bride, a bride and father, or a bridal party.

 

Can I just use a car for the photos?

Yes. Chauffeuring the bride or groom does not have to be part of the service.

How many people does the Porsche 356 carry?

Seeing as it is a small sports car, only one passenger can be carried. If you require luggage to also be transported, please let me know.

Can I hire a car for a self drive?

Sadly, you cannot. My services only cover chauffeur driving.
