Sometimes it matters to arrive in style. When all eyes are on you, cameras, media, colleagues, family, friends or others who you want to make the right impression, the type of transport you arrive in says a lot. Car Australia handles the private transportation needs for all occasions including conferences, weddings, celebrations and other chauffeured transport needs.

Some of the biggest reasons people use the services of private transport are to arrive in a stylish vehicle, however there are some things worth knowing about finding the right transport to make the event as smooth as possible. Here are some questions to ask yourself, and some things to know.

Book In Advance

Often private transportation options are heavily booked on weekends, especially from September-December. As soon as you know the dates of the occasion, it really pays to book to secure your vehicle of choice, and your preferred timeline. Knowing how many people need to be transported will allow you to book the right vehicle, or several vehicles to arrive together if required.

What is your timeline?

Having an understanding of when the luxury vehicle will be needed during the day will allow the company to quote for your transport. If it’s for a wedding, a chauffeur will usually transport the bridal party to the church, and then again to the reception venue – this may be around a 2 hour window, or longer if the transport is used for photos. For private celebrations or nights out at the theatre knowing your timeline is also important. Sometimes in the case of a conference, the start and finish times will be clear. With other celebrations where it may be less obvious, the timeline is something that will need to be considered.

Choose Reliable Operators and Vehicles

Not all private transport companies own their cars. Many contract cars from other operators meaning a greater chance of confusion or mix-ups – both of which you can’t afford when you are on a schedule. Deal with one company – with multiple cars available – and one transaction, and a company who are known for their reliability and professionalism.

Other questions to ask:

It’s worth asking these other questions to find out if the company is right for your occasion and your needs.

  • Are there any extra add-ons as part of the package?
  • What if the occasion goes longer than expected? Is there an overtime rate?
  • What are the cancellation policies? Is there a time limit?

Arriving in the right vehicle can make you feel like a million dollars, and there are many occasions when having someone take care of all the transport needs allows you to sit back, relax and arrive in style, without the stress.
