Notes about potential vehicle blemishes specifically Vintage Limousines, but this applies to all vehicles in our fleet.
Pressure cracks are less common and always seem to come out of nowhere. Most commonly seen in insulated glass, or double-paned windows, pressure cracks can be caused by drastic pressure system changes in the weather or when windows are installed at too high or too low of an elevation level. These cracks tend to curve in the shape of an hourglass and will most likely result in a complete window replacement.
If the cosmetic blemish has caused unsightly photographs and hindered the overall experience we can offer partial refunds. If a glass cracks and , did not impact photos, safety, or the mechanical workings of the car for the ride, we are not able to offer a refund. Glass, unfortunately can be very sensitive. Sometimes rocks can also fly up while driving and break glass or chip paint and cause dings to body. These types of issues are not covered for refunds. On roughly 5% of reservations, some type of blemish such as a rock hitting paint, or dinging chrome, or in this case, a glass breakage, occur. We cannot accommodate refunds for these issues that can arise, and continue to offer our vintage limousine service.
For vintage reservations, we always want our brides and grooms to be happy with the overall experience and for vintage bookings we want to make sure they have terrific photo opportunities.
Our chauffeur will always attempt to stage so that if a glass has a crack it will not be seen.
Cancellation policy for hurricanes, and other weather conditions that make transportation unsafe:
If weather conditions on the date of service allow for safe transport then we consider the service as available and reserved. Refunds are not available.
If weather conditions prohibit safe transport on the date of service (ie. we are actively in a hurricane, or roads are flooded) we allow for a cancellation and refund, and we would preemptively notify the client of a cancellation. Refunds would be issued, minus processing fees.
