Unfortunately that due to licensing and insurance issues we are unable to provide Vintage or Classic vehicles for proms..
We are more than happy to provide a vehicle from our comprehensive range our modern vehicles, Classic Routemaster and Single Deck Buses, Luxury Mini-Coaches, 12 to 20 passenger Party Buses or American stretch Limousines (example pics below), which are all fully licensed, insured for hire and reward, and driven by licensed professional drivers. Please phone or email for further help and information as well as prices.
Please be aware that to provide a service such as this the person or company providing it should have a valid licence allowing them to provide vehicles for hire and reward. Vintage and Classic cars cannot be licensed due to their age, and therefore should not be used for anything other than Weddings and Funerals, or for personal use by the owner. The drivers should also be licensed and CRB checked, but drivers of wedding cars are not required to have this.
If anyone is offering you a Vintage or Classic car for a prom it is extremely unlikely that they are properly licensed, and they may be breaking the law. To protect yourself you should always check that the company you are using have the correct licensing in place for themselves and for their drivers, as well as the cars, enabling them to provide these types of vehicle for hire and reward, and that the vehicles they provide have valid insurance certificates. Most insurance companies insist that the company they are insuring have the required licensing, and if this is not adhered to then the insurance may be invalid.
My advice to you is to pick a local company if you want this type of service, and try and see the vehicle if at all possible before parting with any money. If the company refuses to show you the vehicle be cautious!
Try to avoid so called comparison sites or anyone who those offering a nationwide service, as some of these companies are frequently letting customers down. You can usually tell who they are as they are generally manned by sales people from a call centre, and they will give you a reference number to identify their quotation.
Always check terms and conditions, they are often used by the unscrupulous companies to incur additional costs to their clients and to extricate themselves from any responsibility.
We’d love you to book your prom car with us, but most of all we want you to have a positive experience on this fun day and by following the above advice it will help you to avoid the pitfalls.
