How to start your own wedding car hire business
There is nothing more awe-inspiring than being one of the main parts of another’s special day and making sure that they get the perfect experience that will last them a lifetime of happy memories. Supplying a dream car for someone’s special day can create just that.
Whether you are hiring for a wedding, a high school prom, hen or stage night, or a special birthday or anniversary, making sure that you give the perfect service with the perfect vehicle can make all the difference.
Choosing the perfect vehicle
When you are thinking of hiring out cars for weddings, it is important that you get the right make and models that are desirable to those getting married. Not that there is much to go wrong in obtaining a muscle car or two and maybe a classic like a ’57 Chevy. The more desirable car you buy, the more likely you are going to be able to hire it out for weddings, proms, and the like.
When you are sourcing your vehicles, it is best to widen your search right up rather than trying to keep it local. This way, you are more likely to find the make and models that you are looking for and at a much better price too.
Do not worry too much about how you are going to get the vehicles back to you, as there are car shipping brokers that have many shipping businesses on their books waiting for people like you to take advantage of their car shipping services. Serious sellers will be happy for you to view their cars online either via photos or video link, and when you are happy with what you have found and paid for it, a shipping company of your choice will collect the car for you and deliver it to your chosen address.
Getting your vehicle ready for work
You may find that the vehicles that you have purchased will require some work – especially any classic models that you have brought. This is fine as you will want the vehicles to be roadworthy and reliable for those customers that choose them over every other vehicle on offer.
It is not enough that they should be perfect under the hood. The paintwork, wheels, and interior are going to have to be pristine, too. This means that you may have to hire the services of professional car upholsters to give that new finish that your vehicles deserve.
Advertising your business
When all this is sorted, you are going to have to think about advertising your business and getting your cars seen in public. Using flyers, store windows, and adverts in local newspapers and magazines are a good way forwards, especially if you use color photos of each of your cars.
You are also going to have to get your new business online and have a website for potential customers to visit. In order to give a desirable professional feel to your business, it is best to get an experienced web designer on board, as well as a business that can help you with your SEO and social media profile.
