This will depend on the area of your collection and destination and also whether you are booking any of our vehicles for the daytime ceremony, however nearly all of the Classic and Vintage cars would not be available for the late night collection of passengers due to insurance reasons, not forgetting your own safety as most of the older vehicles lighting would not be suitable for today’s modern road conditions during darkness especially in country roads and on fast motorways, however modern cars of course would not be affected. The only vehicles that would be considered for an evening collection are those that are shown in the ‘Late Night Collection’ section of the website, to locate these vehicles click on the ‘Vehicles’ button above, then use the drop down list for ‘Vehicle Type’ and click on ‘Late Night Collection’. To find those that cover your area add the postcode of the Collection Address in the box, you can also add the Destination Postcode in the Ceremony Address box. Please bear in mind we may not be able to provide vehicles for late night collections if this is all you require, you must also have booked the vehicle through Premier Carriage for the daytime wedding event at the same time for us to include the evening collection under a wedding hire agreement to satisfy insurance company requirements. If you do not require our vehicle/s for the daytime wedding and only require an evening collection we may still be able to help you with a Modern car so please contact us directly.
For reasons of safety and visibility the car would not be in wedding ribbons during darkness hours as not only would the police be concerned, but your own safety remains our No.1 priority. The evening collection would be at an additional charge and would not be included in the prices already shown on the website for daytime itineraries, a separate quote would be given on request and this will be based on the actual time of the hire and the mileage involved as everything depends on total mileage, base to base. The evening collection prices would normally reflect the time of collection so bear in mind the later you wish to be collected in the evening the higher the cost will become and if collection includes operating into the early hours of the next day then costs would become considerably higher to account for the unsocial hours, or collection may not be possible at all with some vehicles as you will appreciate Premier Carriage is a daytime wedding hire company not a 24 hour private hire company but we will help if we can within the limitations of insurance policies, UK law driver time directives and local authority licences. Please also note the costs will be considerably higher if the vehicle you choose is not based local to your collection and destination areas so please bear this in mind if you wish to keep costs down, in addition some vehicles will only be available for Late Night Collection in areas reasonably local to their base. Naturally late night collections in ‘chauffeur driven’ cars will cost considerably more than that charged by taxis or mini cabs, even if the distance is short.
