Our driver Kelly was fantastic!
That being said the black Chrysler 300 was IMO a piece of junk. I guess being a car guy was the only reason I noticed and others did not. It was rusting around the window mouldings, the carpets were faded, worn and had cigarette burns and i'd say about half of the interior lights worked. When we took off the car made a rattle/banging/knocking noise obviously some sort of mechanical problem that was being ignored.
We then had a Pick-up later in the evening and that was a Cadillac STS and it was in allot better shape than the 300.
The company communicated well and confirmed everything before the special occasion and the driver again was great but I feel the limo should be retired.

We rented a trolley from AT for our wedding. Before we finalized our contract with them, we got a full tour of all the vehicles and assurance from the owner of their professionalism and dependency. All of their promises were fulfilled – they were on time, the driver went above and beyond (serving champagne and even fixing my train before I walked down the aisle). The vehicle was nicely decorated and in fine working condition. We are very happy with our choice for transportation for our big day – and highly recommend them to others!

Although everyone I spoke with at Advantage was wonderful, the day of service was not so great. We had the trolley, which was an incredibly bumpy ride. The trolleys are only equipped with your basic car radio, so we were stuck listening to Fly 92.3 the whole time, which actually ended up being 95% commercials. The driver didn't even bother to change the channel when the commercials came on!! Since we had run a little over with pictures and were about a half an hour behind (partially due to the fact since he took the longest route from pictures to the reception) he stopped me from getting off the shuttle until I gave him gratuity and paid for the extra 1/2 hour, even though they already had my card on file, and could have easily charged it for the extra half an hour. Overall, I was disappointed with my service, and would recommend staying away.

Advantage Transportation was incredibly easy to work with. We hired them for a trolley and a limo and they managed our itinerary with multiple stops. The drivers were incredibly friendly and accommodating. The limo driver even made an extra stop for me. The trolley couldn't have been cuter inside with lots of flowers and free champagne for a toast. They also took all signage off the outside of the trolley as we requested. We selected advantage because they were the most responsive company when we first started contacted trolley rentals and we weren't disappointed.

Dave from Advantage was such a great driver for the trolley we used for our wedding. He was on time and really great to work with. Our driver after the wedding that brought us back to the hotel seemed irritated and cranky but still got us where we needed to go safely so I was able to look past his attitude. Coordinating the details and timing before the wedding was very thorough and everyone at Advantage made it easy. Thanks again!!

This company is HORRIBLE! Everything started out amazing, I loved the people I was working with, they were on top of everything. I had a huge wedding with more than 250 out of town guests. advantage was responsible for shuttle service from 5 different hotels, the bridal party and family. About 3 months before my wedding (after my parents paid almost the entire bill upfront) they stopped returning my calls, lied to me all the time about the manager being out of the office, and no one ever called me back. I finally got Don on the phone, he apologized and set a meeting with me. After I drove 3 1/2 hours to meet him he was NOT even there, nor was anyone able to reach him. I waited another hour for them to track down an assistant to come meet with me that day. On the day of my wedding I received a call 10 minutes prior to pick up time that the car I reserved a year and a half in advance was not able to be there. They then sent a badly used limo with a driver who was dressed horribly, his shirt wasn't tucked in and he had alcohol on his breath and he didn't even know how to get to the venue that was 5 minutes away....My dad had to give him turn by turn directions!! The driver actually took money from my groomsmen to go get bottles of alcohol for them when I told the driver and company that I did not want any alcohol in the cars before the ceremony. To this day I have not received any apology or even a call back! What a nightmare this company turned out to be!!!

We used Advantage Transportation to provide 2 shuttles to and from our wedding venue in Lake George, NY. Their communication prior to the event was fantastic, they worked with me to create an accurate schedule, they labeled their vans for my guests, and they arrived on time and got everyone to the ceremony before it started and made sure every last guest got back to the hotel at the end of the night!

We rented the trolley to pick us up from the hotel for pre-ceremony pictures. The trolley is perfect for groups without having to be smooshed into a limo.

Our driver was amazing. During our pictures on the Empire State Plaza, the skies started to open and basically a monsoon ensued. Our driver came running out of the trolley with an umbrella and somehow managed to keep my husband and I dry. He was absolutely amazing.

Thanks to Peter for being such a great driver on our wedding day. It was pouring the whole time but still hot and humid. He had umbrellas for everyone and made sure the bride was completely covered from the rain. He also had waters for all of us after the very humid ceremony in the church. Thanks so much!

We used Advantage Transportation's trolley to drive the bridal party before and after our wedding. They were fantastic. Leading up to the day they were responsive, easy to communicate with and flexible when I changed the itinerary a million times! The driver was extremely professional throughout the entire day. He was prompt and courteous. I highly recommend Advantage Transportation for your next event.

We rented 3 limos for our son's wedding; they are not inexpensive, but so worth it. Advantage was very responsive and highly accommodative; their office staff is GREAT. Their limos were beautiful and immaculate. However, we were NOT told that the Bentley was NOT air conditioned for the bride and her dad (no problem in that it was a cool day, thank God), or that the 8 passenger Lincoln only had ONE door, which made it extremely hard to get in and out of with gowns and especially for the elderly and - FYI, could never work for special needs people. Regardless, we would highly recommend them as the best in our area and if you are equipped with the knowledge you need as stated here, you are sure to have great drivers, immaculate limos, and an easy company to deal with for all your event needs. We HIGHLY recommend them.

For our wedding we rented a trolley. We were a little nervous because we had booked through Albany Aqua Ducks, but then the trollies were sold. However, we had no reason to be nervous. Advantage Transportation honored our contract that we had made with Albany Aqua Duck and did a fabulous job. The trolley was decorated for Christmas and looked great! Our driver, Kenny, was extremely professional and nice. He truly helped to make our day a special one!

I was really disappointed with our driver. We booked the Trolley for our wedding day thinking it would be a blast. The driver was an hour late, had to stop and get gas and didn't say a word the entire time. Apparently, you are supposed to have champagne, music, and red carpet. We got none of that. When I called the company to complain though they were very understanding and took good care of us.

We used Advantage Limo for our wedding and they were very professional! Our driver was John and he showed up on time, rolled out a red carpet for me and helped me into the Limo - a 14 passenger, white, Cadillac Escalade. The limo was stunning and it was stocked with water and champagne. John new exactly where he was going - got us to the church and helped us line up for the ceremony. He drove us around Albany while we took pictures and got us to the Desmond in time for the cocktail reception. We had a great experience with John and Advantage Limo!

This was the worst vendor I had to work with. I warn you--stay away from them! I rented a vintage car for my wedding on 9/9/11. The booking part was easy however on my wedding day the car showed up 20 minutes late and was having mechanical issues. We were finally on our way to the church and the car broke down on the highway!! Luckily my trusty vendor All Occasions Limos was following behind us with the rest of the bridesmaids and was able to get to the church.

Now back from my honeymoon I had to contact them twice for a refund which I still have yet to receive. Very unprofessional!

Awesome!! We loved everything about our limo! As soon as we knew the date of our wedding, the Escalade Limo was the first thing we booked. Advantage Transportation is very attentive to all of your requests and has a very personable staff. We can't say enough great things about our drive, Don! Don was absolutely FANTASTIC!! I met him at a bridal show and hada nice chat with him. I asked him if I could request him as a driver and he told me to call on Monday. By the time I called late Monday afternoon, he had already put in to be our driver the day of our wedding. Don was so attentive on the wedding day to make sure we were all comfortable and never wanting for anything. He even followed us into the church when we arrived and gave me words of encourange and fixed the train of my dress just before I walked down the aisle!!! I would recommend Advantage, not only for their limos, but for the quality service I received from Don at my wedding!!

The office staff was a little rude when I asked to change the time by an hour on the day of our wedding. I was told a six person limo would be enough for all five bridesmaids, my mother, a flower girl, and myself. When I called to confirm the registration, the man who assisted said the limo was too small and recommended I upgrade. This was two days before the wedding when moving funds is not the easiest, or the first thing I want to be concerned about. Regardless, I upgraded. The limo driver was fine, nothing to really comment on. I guess I would recommend Advantage.. if the cost you'd be paying really does end up being less than if you went to a competitor.
