We used Chariots for Hire for both the rehearsal dinner and the day of the wedding. The minibus that we got for the rehearsal dinner was on time, clean, and cool. Great all around! However, the day of wedding wasn't quite as flawless. I will say that the driver was super nice and worked to make sure that the bridesmaids and bride didn't get wet since it was raining when we had to leave for the church. The issues we had were that the limo nicked the mailbox when leaving the house and the limo had not run its air conditioning during the ceremony. It was horrendously hot in the limo when we climbed in with our wedding party. It would have been nice if the limo driver had just run the A/C for a little bit before the ceremony ended. It seems common sense to me, but in retrospect we should have had someone call him to cool the limo before we left the church.

We used Chariots for Hire for our transportation to and from the airport for our honeymoon.

They were extremely professional, both the administrative staff and the actual drivers. In addition, they were very prompt, even early, which is definitely what I look for when arranging a ride to or from the airport.

I hadn't scheduled our airport pick-up ahead of time, and literally emailed Chariots for Hire the day before from Aruba. They got back to me promptly and said it would be no problem, that a driver would be there. I would highly recommend them!

My husband and I contracted Chariots for Hire for transportation for the bridal party and guests for our Rehearsal Dinner (5/23/14) and Wedding (5/24/14), both held in Washington, D.C.

Pros:
- Patrick at Chariots for Hire was very professional and responsive to e-mails (very easy to work with)
- Pricing was competitive with other transportation in the metro D.C. area
- Shuttle and Limo was clean and temperature was comfortable

Cons:
- Did not notify hotel or myself that the shuttle was on the side of the hotel and not the front upon arrival (could not go to the front due to sizing constraints)
- Did not plan a route that would accommodate the size of the vehicle (i.e. could not make turns) causing the shuttle to be late to the rehearsal
- 1st shuttle left the reception with only half the guests and did not return therefore leaving more guests then seats on the 2nd shuttle

Overall our experience with Chariots for Hire was positive. We have yet to have attended a wedding without some sort of issue with transportation regardless of how well planned thus I feel fortunate our issues were relatively minor! I suggest to future brides to discuss with Chariots for Hire the route of the vehicle and confirm with the driver upon arrival that his schedule corresponds to yours.

We rented three shuttles from Chariots for Hire to transport guests to and from the hotel to our wedding venue and had a great experience with them. Patrick was really easy and accommodating to work with and the shuttles were all on time. The company put signs on their shuttles just like I'd asked them to and the shuttles were very clean.

I'd recommend Chariots for Hire for your event!

We used Chariots for Hire since they were the only limo company that had experience navigating the very steep driveway of our venue.

They worked with us throughout our ever-changing day-of schedule and the driver showed up on time everywhere we had to be and got us there in a timely fashion.

My only complaint would be the driver's choice of route, instead of taking the interstates to our locations he chose the back roads. While he may have had good intentions of a drive through the winding Virginia countryside roads being romantic it just ended up adding 20 minutes to our ride and caused anyone sitting in the sideways sitting seat to feel carsick. So if you've got a specific route you want to take or are prone to carsickness, I'd recommend letting them know ahead of time.

Having heard horror stories about limos/buses not showing up on time, our wedding planner, Terry Larkin with Added Touches, recommended Chariots for Hire. We could not have been more pleased with their punctuality and level of service for both the limo to the wedding, the charter buses from the church to reception, and town car for my husband and I after the reception. They were all dressed impeccably, and treated us incredibly well throughout the day. I definitely recommend them to ease any worry about timeliness/ etc.

Booking with Chariots for Hire was easy and efficient. They sent multiple emails verifying our receipts and the schedules for all 3 of the vehicles we hired. The drivers of 2 of our vehicles were great, they were both kind, on time and professional, especially Reggie (he was great)! We did have issues with one of our vehicles, and unfortunately it was the vehicle driving the most people. Although I was not on this vehicle, I heard about it from our guests. Despite multiple emails with the company saying the bus HAD to leave at a particular time, the bus both arrived late and left for our venue late. We had also booked the bus to take people to and from our after party, and although I received confirmation this was correct, the bus just left after it dropped people off at the after party although we had paid for another 2 hours. We had to call and argue with the company, who eventually admitted they got their schedules wrong, and sent the bus back. On the way home, the bus also picked up several people who were not part of our wedding party and who were able to have the bus make additional stops aside from those I had laid out with them ahead of time. I would hesitantly recommend this vendor to someone else, as I was very pleased with the majority of our vehicles. I'm not entirely sure what the confusion was with our large bus, but having to call and argue for a bus that I had already paid for to come back was not the highlight of the night.

We were very unhappy with Chariots for Hire. We hired them to provide bus services at our wedding. A bus was supposed to pick up the wedding party and family at the hotel at 5PM to bring us to the venue early for photos. At 5PM the groom received a phone call saying the bus was stuck on 495 due to the rain. About 20 minutes later we received another call saying the bus had actually broken down and that they would need to send another bus which would take approximately 20 minutes. That bus didn't show up for another 80 minutes. The wedding party & family gave up and either got their cars out of the hotel parking garage and drove to the wedding or hailed taxis... totally defeating the purpose of hiring a bus service. The backup bus did end up arriving at the hotel to transport some of our guests, thankfully, though it was very late. All told, there were three round trips we required before the wedding started but we only got one. When we called the next day to speak with a manager, they surprisingly only offered to refund us a very small amount compared to what we paid. We were very disappointed and we would not recommend them.

I used Chariots for Hire to my July 6, 2013 wedding. They transported the bridal party to the ceremony and to the reception. We also booked a getaway car for after the reception. Their prices are fair and they are super easy to work with. We got all confirmations via email, so I had everything at hand. A few days before the wedding they send out an upcoming reservation email, so you can double check all your details. Aga was great to work with and actually caught a mistake on the addresses I sent him. The cars were on time and the drivers were very nice. I highly recommend!

I had high hopes based on a friends previous experience, so we hired them for our wedding. The task was simple: transport guests from the hotel to the wedding, and then back to the hotel later. The issues were numerous, and I dont think this is their typical service, but such poor service must be noted.

1. The driver did not know her destination, then unplugged the GPS saying "I never trust these things", right before she proceeded to get lost. Luckily, a local passenger on board gave her directions. They arrived late. The second shuttle from the hotel proceeded without incident (I believe).

2. The driver came to see me, 10 minutes before our ceremony started, to ask what time she should be back. Seriously? What are contracts for? But I politely reminded her of the evening schedule.

3. At 10:15, the driver finds me and says she parked the shuttle behind the building at 8 pm and "no one has come to find [her] all night". Meaning - she never drove up to the front of the building to pick up passengers. By this time, there should have been 3 return trips to the hotel. I asked if she had looked in the lobby, and she had not. If she had, she would have seen the 15-20 people sitting there since 9 pm waiting for her. (Including a 92 year old grandmother!) She then did 3 trips back to the hotel. Our bridal party ended up waiting for 1.5 hours after the reception concluded for our ride back.

4. When I called the company the next day, one employee said he would help and get back to me that day with a solution. He did not call back, so I called 2 days later and found out I actually needed to talk to someone else. After several back and froths, they company refunded me 1/5 of our cost.

While I appreciate the meager financial remedy, Chariots for Hire was the WORST part of our wedding. I feel horrible our guests were treated so poorly, and I truly hope others do not experience such poor service.

Chariots for Hire was great for our limo to the ceremony and reception for the wedding. They were a bit expensive but compared to the other limo service companies they were a good value. The only issue I did have with them was 2 days before the wedding our limo broke down and they called to change the limo. It was not the limo I had wanted, but I did understand. I did not understand how it would take so long to fix the car or that another one was not available as I had wanted it, but overall they were a great company to work with.

The day of our wedding everything was perfect and we were very happy with all of our vendors, except for Chariots for hire. I decided to book them looking at all the good reviews and when i called them, they were very polite. However the day of our wedding our drivers arrive a little late, and the bus that was supposed to pick us up at the capitol building was waiting for us blocks away from the pick up site. Also unfortunately our 20 passenger limo did not have air conditioning. This is why I would not recommend chariots for hire.

Chariots for Hire was a great vendor for our wedding transportation. They picked up the bridesmaids from their hotels the morning of the wedding, and were flexible when I called the day before pickup to add a destination to the trip at no cost. They also provided a shuttle from the hotels to the ceremony, and then from the reception to the hotels. The reason I gave them a 3 in professionalism, is because we had problems when processing payment information, where one of them said they received it and 2 weeks later called my planner to tell her they had not received payment from us. It was sorted out, but caused a bit of last minute stress while we wondered where our credit card information went! Otherwise, they were very easy to work with and showed up on time every time.

I used Chariots for Hire for my December 1, 2012, wedding in Washington, D.C. The reps I dealt with were helpful and informative throughout the entire rental process. We rented their 20-passenger hummer limo, two shuttles for guests, and a "getaway" town car. All of the vehicles showed up on time and the drivers were great! We especially liked our town car driver Babou. He was extremely nice! I would highly recommend Chariots for Hire for any future brides.

We used Chariots for Hire for our Wedding, limo for bride and groom and shuttle for guests. Everything ran smoothly and the drivers were awesome! Being the bride, I rode in the limo and I was amazed at how helpful and flexible the limo driver was... we asked him to make a few stops to take pictures after the ceremony and he was more than happy to make it happen! Everything went well and the limo/shuttle was extremely clean and taken care of. I just wanted to enjoy the day of and with Chariots for Hire I knew everything and everyone was going to get where they needed to be when they needed to be there! Thank you! We 100% recommend!

I wish I had a better review for Chariots for Hire - but despite the fact that I booked them a FULL YEAR before my wedding, they called me 24 hours before the ceremony to tell me that the vehicle I reserved was out of service. They were unable to offer me another vehicle with similar options. The only thing they had available had row seating, no bathroom, etc. - all the things I had specifically wanted for a 4 hour bus ride taking pictures! I was so upset - I spent the day before my wedding frantically calling other vendors and eventually found my own replacement (which Chariots SHOULD have found for me in my opinion). They said it was a really busy weekend because of Homecoming festivities going on - but otherwise offered me no other companies which could fill in.

I wish I had a better review for Chariots for Hire - but despite the fact that I booked them a FULL YEAR before my wedding, they called me 24 hours before the ceremony to tell me that the vehicle I reserved was out of service. They were unable to offer me another vehicle with similar options. The only thing they had available had row seating, no bathroom, etc. - all the things I had specifically wanted for a 4 hour bus ride taking pictures! I was so upset - I spent the day before my wedding frantically calling other vendors and eventually found my own replacement (which Chariots SHOULD have found for me in my opinion). They said it was a really busy weekend because of Homecoming festivities going on - but otherwise offered me no other companies which could fill in.

I hate to sound so negative but they made it a really stressful situation for me and I was in tears trying to get ready for my rehearsal. I would not book them again and I think you should avoid them if possible. Read less

I booked a 14 passenger Hummer and 33 passenger shuttle bus from CFH for my wedding. The Hummer arrived 15 minutes early, which was good, but took a long, residential route to drop off the groomsmen at the church. I had to call the driver to see if he was coming back to the hotel to pick up the bridesmaids. The shuttle bus for the guests worked out well. It arrived on time and completed the scheduled number of trips as listed in the contract. An unpleasant surprise was the overtime charge we received on the 14 passenger Hummer. We were charged $90 for 15 minutes of overtime! As the bride, I wasn’t wearing a watch, so I can’t confirm we were actually running late. The vehicles were clean and the company was fairly responsive. I’d suggest assigning someone to WATCH THE CLOCK and give very clear directions to your driver.

Our limo driver was great. The limo driver we had even stood out in the rain so I could get out at the reception hall. He would have stood out there longer if I hadn't yelled at him to get back in the car. :-) He was super flexible on driving around to different locations. However the shuttle driver we hired was not as knowledgeable of the area and wasn't very good at listening to the my Matron of Honor (who knows nothing about the area, but was getting directions from me). Also I sent the company an itinerary, with directions before our wedding and they did not supply them to the drivers, which was a fail on their party. I sent them an email recommending that in the future they send drivers that know the area in which the wedding and reception are in. I know they have drivers that know Arlington/Alexandria as friends who recommended them live and work in those areas.

We were very happy with the service provided by Chariots For Hire at my daughter's recent wedding.

Since the wedding was out-of town for both families and many were making a long weekend out of it to do sightseeing in nearby Washington, DC we decided to book a full size tour bus with guide for our many guests. It was quite a hit and the driver and guide were knowledgeable and very pleasant.

The day of the wedding we booked a limo to take us to the church and two buses to shuttle the guests to and from the reception. The drivers were all very courteous, friendly and professional and right on time!

It was very easy to book all of the vehicles and everyone we spoke with at Chariots provided great service. Thank you especially to Michelle, one of the dispatcher, who walked me through the schedules and assured me it would all work out fine-she was right! This was a great choice and we would highly reccommend Chariots For Hire for excellent wedding transportation.

Great company to use for limos and shuttles (mini buses).

It all worked out and in hindsight, I would print directions to make sure they have the best route...just a small tweak!

Chariots for Hire offered only decent service for a slightly higher price than their competitors. We booked more than 5 vehicles over two days to move our guests around Washington DC and hide issues with more than half of them. They sent some of the wrong vehicle sizes, one with only limited AC (this was DC in the summer!), and a few that were sub-contracted from another company, and we never heard an apology or justification. But the worst was when our wedding party waited outside the church after the rehearsal for 30-45 minutes, since the bus driver was stuck in traffic. However, he was stuck in traffic on M St. because he left the church after dropping us off for some unknown reason. As a result, we were 20 minutes late for our rehearsal dinner.

Of all of the planning decisions we made, booking Chariots was the only one I wish we could take back. If you're looking for worry-free transportation for you and your guests, I would look elsewhere.

We used Chariots for our wedding on May 26th and I hate to write a negative review but it was one of the hottest days of the year so far and the air conditioner in our 20 passenger hummer limo was broken. The limo was gorgeous and the limo driver was awesome but it made the limo very uncomfortable with 18 people in a limo, no AC and me in a huge wedding gown and men in their tuxedos. Everyone was sweating and complaining about it so that was kind of upsetting. I did think the limo was lovely and I know this probably does not happen very often but it was a shame that it did otherwise this review would have been 5 stars.

The 36-person shuttle bus was the right size for us, and the driver ran regular loops between the venue, our hotel, and the Metro. We didn't have to think about the transportation, and that's a pretty good deal in our book.

The drivers were professional and early for their arrival time, which was nice because we were on a tight time table shuttling people from Arlington to DC, twice. We left the marriage license in the limo and the driver drove it back once we realized it. Would recommend, no complaints.

Chariots for Hire treated us so well for our wedding! We had multiple pick up and drop off locations for the wedding party prior to the ceremony, and also hired a second bus for guest shuttle to/from the hotel. They were always right on time and knew exactly where to go - no getting lost or anything!

Also, apparently one of the buses we hired for the day went out of commission the day of the wedding. They replaced it with a larger bus, free of charge. Very professional of them to just solve the problem without bothering me about it on the wedding day.

The only slight mark down was because one of the drivers just did not speak to me or my guests - even when we said hello, or thank you, or anything! It was a little off-putting. But the driver of our second bus FANTASTIC, as were all of the dispatchers and administrators I spoke with during set up. They got us where we needed to be, on time and under budget - great job!

Chariots for Hire helped me rest easy on my big day. We were using a church that was in Chantilly but people were staying in Arlington where the reception was held. We didn't want our guests to have to deal with travel, so we hired 2 buses in addition to our limo. The drivers all showed up on time and were lovely to our guests. They were promptly delivered to the Church and back to the hotel. All our guests were pleased with the service.
Our limo driver was wonderful! He handled a couple of last minute changes with grace and helped us succeed in getting downtown for pictures and back to Arlington.

We rented a "party bus" through Chariots for Hire and were extremely pleased. Our only concern (hence the four star quality of service rating) was that the capacity of the bus was probably over-estimated. We're not large people, but we were PACKED in, despite being below the max capacity. Otherwise, the service was wonderful--easy to book, on time, and professional. I didn't catch our driver's name, but he was super nice--even brought flowers for me! Would definitely recommend.

The company was very responsive throughout the process of setting up the service, taking payment, and confirming all of the details of the event. They were very flexible in allowing me to make a few changes leading up to the day. The company itself was really great and it was an excellent value.

On the day of the service the driver was at the venue on time and he did everything we asked on the trip to the church from the hotel but following the ceremony the driver was nowhere to be found at the church and the guests had to wait 15 minutes to be transported back to the hotel for the cocktail hour.

After that small glitch was dealt with and the driver came back to get the 2nd group (wedding party) he played the music for us and it was a great ride back to the hotel.

Overall I would recommend this service for their value and quality of service but would just be very directive with your driver.

Well all I can really say is that this was by far the worst vendor we booked!!!!! Not only was the second limo late picking myself and the bridesmaids up which made the ceremony late and had even my husband worried I was ditching him at the alter.....but then the limo BROKE DOWN after the ceremony. It was ridiculous they horrible service that was provided! Don't use them!

We rented a 12-person limo for the bridal party and towncar for us. The drivers were on time and knew exactly where they were going so we didn't have any of those horror stories about getting lost on the way to the ceremony! The only reason they are getting a 4-star rating is because the A/C was broken when they came to pick us up to take pictures and we were melting on the hot June day - however it was fixed by the time the limo went to pick up the guys.

They were a bit more expensive than the others, but overall, I didn't want to be stuck without transportation on my wedding day. Great service.

This was the only limo company in the DC area that had the number and type of limos I needed for our entire wedding party (suv for bride, bus for groom, suv for parents, etc), so we were forced to go with them. Making the reservation was easy enough. There was no room for negotiations in pricing, despite the fact that we originally booked 4 limos. Every time we called, someone picked up and was able to assist us. They were able to accommodate any changes we made to the reservation. All people we dealt with were courteous and respectful. There reservation system sent us email confirmations, which we appreciated. However, any time we modified the reservation (times, type of vehicle) it did not send the confirmation though the representative said it should have. The real problem was on the day of the ceremony. One limo did not having working air conditioning. It was 90 degrees out, and everyone was in heavy ethnic clothing, making them extremely uncomfortable. The driver indicated he would try and do something about it, but did nothing. We had made the reservation for these limos a year and a half in advance, let alone for 3 limos, and they had the audacity to send us a limo without A/C for a May wedding. When I called to complain someone took my complaint, but no one ever called me back. After trying for the third time to get someone on the phone, they credited back $150 out of the $540 cost for the limo. I was not satisfied with this resolution, but could not do much, other than file a complaint with the Better Business Bureau.

Chariots for Hire was great to work with. They were great about setting up service, getting us a good price (it was prom season), and changing our pickup times. Our limo driver was professional and courteous. She helped my mother-in-law who has weak knees get in and out of the limo, and helped me make sure my dress didn't get dirty and to not make a faceplant getting out of the car. The driver took the back roads nicely and it was a comfortable drive.

However, they were not worth what we paid. The white limo we used looked like it was going to rust out from the bottom, scratches covered the side of the limo. That condition wasn't helped any when our driver nearly took out my sister-in-law's mailbox getting out of the driveway. That put a nice dent in the side of the car. The air vents didn't want to work well, and the ceiling adornment looked like it was going to fall down on us. It was rather embarrassing and you can see how beat-up the limo is in the pictures. We had a few guests even comment on the condition of the limo. I'm not sure if how many of the white Chryslers they have and we just got the short straw, but had I known what we were going to get, I would have gone elsewhere.

We hired a passenger bus from Chariots for Hire to provide shuttle service from our wedding reception to the near-by hotel most of our guests were staying at. I booked online, which was convenient. I confirmed the reservation and paid the balance due 48 hours prior. They were competitively priced. They arrived on time and provided the service as requested. No problems, no issues. Everything ran very smoothly.

I saved a winter special promotion I had saw the previous year and they had no problems honoring it for our wedding day. It was very easy to book and everyone I spoke too was very pleasant. The driver arrived on time and was super nice! He helped everyone in and out of the limo, held my dress, bouquet, whatever was needed, and was just very attentive. He was very courteous and polite and made our limo rental quite pleasant. I definitely recommend their services, but DO keep track of your own time. The limo driver had given me the wrong time which had us lose an hour of our limo time, but the hour was better spent without the limo anyway.

We used this limo service for our transportation to/from the wedding venue. Our driver was extremely professional during our transportation. Our only complaint would be in the service we received AFTER our wedding. My husband accidentally left his cell phone in the limo (our fault!). We realized this happened and my parents called the limo company the next day to report the missing cell phone. They were directed through a long, tedius process and finally told to email a lost and found address for which they never received a response. After a week and a half going by, I demanded that they not put me through to "Lost and Found" and made the person on the phone check. She told me "oh yes, I have his cell phone here- come pick it up". When arriving at the limo company, they had a pile of at least 30 cell phones sitting on their table. We were told the drivers clean the car after each passenger- if this is the case, why don't they contact the passengers that left items? OR - crazy thought - why don't they respond when you report an item that was lost?

The trolley driver was pleasant and fun and the trolley was extremely well kept. They even let us do our own decorating! After the reception a town car was used for the exit of the bride and groom. All of the rides and drivers were top notch and were at their expected locations ahead of time so they would be ready when we needed them. We were also pleased that our reservations for each of the rides was confirmed by Chariots for Hire two days before the wedding. They were an excellent choice for our rides.

I reserved the Chrysler 300 8-person limo and loved it. Mustafa, our driver, was early to the hotel. He was warm, courteous and professional. He oriented us to the limo and helped us out by taking photos of me and my friends after reaching the destination. The limo was clean and polished. I loved how we could control the "mood" (lighting) and temperature of the inside. I was concerned with not having a specific contact person for the company, but their office was open in case I had any questions or concerns. We were only in the limo for 25 minutes, so I wish I didn't have to reserve the vehicle for 3 hours, but I do understand that is many companies' minimums.

I had no issues with this vendor until I found out that the limo driver, who caused us to be an hour late to our reception because he used his own directions and drove us around the world rather than take the back way that our planner gave him, charged us an additional $200 because we were late. Thankfully, my planner fought and two months later, we were reimbursed after the company did their investigation. Otherwise, everyone else that we worked with was very professional and the limos were nice.

I'll attempt to keep this review as objective as possible, but it will be difficult considering the quality of service (or maybe non-service? disservice?) that I've received from Chariots for Hire. For our wedding day, we reserved 3 vehicles for transportation and confirmed the reservation multiple times.

Vehicle 1 - 14 Passenger Van - Scheduled to pick up the bridal party from the church after the ceremony (3:30pm) and take us to the reception venue for pictures before the guests arrive. They sent a 14 passenger van, but it was missing an entire row of seats. An 11-seater 14 passenger van. We were forced to flag down family members in the street and ask them to go directly to the reception venue and not back to the hotel first as they had originally planned. Not what we paid $565 dollars for.

Vehicle 2 – 56 Passenger Bus – Scheduled to pick up guests from the hotel at 4:30pm and take them to the reception. 4:15pm… no bus. 4:30pm… no bus. 5:00pm (reception starts)… still no bus. Needless to say, my new wife and I were a little stressed out that the reception had started and half of the guests were still missing. After our friend had called Chariots for Hire multiple times, a party bus (the ones with stripper poles – defiantly not what we ordered) arrives at the hotel at 5:15pm and the remaining guests cram in and show up to the reception an hour late.

Vehicle 3 – 33 Passenger Bus – Scheduled to pick up guests from the hotel at 4:30pm and take them to the reception. This one actually showed up on time and was the correct vehicle.

Two out of three ain’t bad, right? Not when it’s one of the most important days of your life that you spend months planning, confirm your transportation reservation multiple times and drop over $2,000 so that your friends and family can enjoy the reception and not have to worry about driving. Needless to say, there were some people that were upset.

I wish the story ended here. The next day we receive an email from Chariots for Hire thanking us for our new $57 purchase. Apparently one of the busses went over the booked time slot and they charged us an overage fee. Really? They show up an hour late and then charge us a fee when they (allegedly) went over the paid time? Upon calling Chariots for Hire the next day to explain the situation (and inquire about the $57 charge), they seemed like they could care less. Not once did we receive an apology or an admission of wrongdoing. I might as well have been speaking into the box at a drive-through. After being on the phone for 40 minutes, we were assured that someone from customer service would call us on 10/11 – the day we were back from our honeymoon.

I followed up today and was told that the only person that can help me is on a medical leave of absence. I will be sure to update this response with their resolution.

**UPDATE**

Was contacted fairly quickly by the owner after posting my review (thanks, Yelp!) and was able to work out a resolution that I felt was appropriate.

Vehicle 2 – 56 Passenger Bus – Scheduled to pick up guests from the hotel at 4:30pm and take them to the reception. 4:15pm… no bus. 4:30pm… no bus. 5:00pm (reception starts)… still no bus. Needless to say, my new wife and I were a little stressed out that the reception had started and half of the guests were still missing. After our friend had called Chariots for Hire multiple times, a party bus (the ones with stripper poles – defiantly not what we ordered) arrives at the hotel at 5:15pm and the remaining guests cram in and show up to the reception an hour late.

Vehicle 3 – 33 Passenger Bus – Scheduled to pick up guests from the hotel at 4:30pm and take them to the reception. This one actually showed up on time and was the correct vehicle.

Two out of three ain’t bad, right? Not when it’s one of the most important days of your life that you spend months planning, confirm your transportation reservation multiple times and drop over $2,000 so that your friends and family can enjoy the reception and not have to worry about driving. Needless to say, there were some people that were upset.

I wish the story ended here. The next day we receive an email from Chariots for Hire thanking us for our new $57 purchase. Apparently one of the busses went over the booked time slot and they charged us an overage fee. Really? They show up an hour late and then charge us a fee when they (allegedly) went over the paid time? Upon calling Chariots for Hire the next day to explain the situation (and inquire about the $57 charge), they seemed like they could care less. Not once did we receive an apology or an admission of wrongdoing. I might as well have been speaking into the box at a drive-through. After being on the phone for 40 minutes, we were assured that someone from customer service would call us on 10/11 – the day we were back from our honeymoon.

I followed up today and was told that the only person that can help me is on a medical leave of absence. I will be sure to update this response with their resolution.

**UPDATE**

Was contacted fairly quickly by the owner after posting my review (thanks, Yelp!) and was able to work out a resolution that I felt was appropriate. Read less

We had an awful experience with Chariots for Hire for our 9/18 wedding.

Essentially, after the paying the premium to use CFH because they "own their fleet"- a contracted motorcoach showed up to drive our guests to and from the days from events. The contracted motorcoach (which was not nearly as nice as the pictures they direct you to online of the fleet they own) was never given an itinerary of the day, so the groom had to walk through/write down all of the drop off's and pick up.
Because CFH was MIA- the driver did not know to take our guests from the hotel to the reception- until a guest called. We had 57 guests arrive at our wedding reception 50 minutes late-- 10 minutes before the cocktail hour ended!
They then charged us $120 because the motorcoach ran over--- $60 they did refund, but this is long before we knew the extent of what happened to 57 of our guests!

When we called and wrote CFH to discuss the issue- we were told they read/heard our complaints and in their opinion the issue was closed! No explanation, no compensation, no apology has been offered.

The reviews on Yelp and Yahoo were right--- DO NOT USE THIS COMPANY!!

The staff of Chariots for Hire were very nice. The driver was excellent. He was patient and courteous. The only issue was the vehicle itself. It rained on my wedding day so I did not expect the exterior to be clean however, I did expect the full word "Escalade" to be on the vehicle. The "C" was missing. On the inside, everything looked worn and tattered. A few of the seats were cracked but the vehicle was not old. The company did rectify the situation by giving me a credit on my card of 1 hour of service but that does not change the fact that I do not have pictures of us getting in or out of the limousine. Very nice driver though...

I have used CFH in the past and was happy to have them transport my guests from our hotel to the ceremony location and then to the reception. My only issue was that there was a breakdown in communication somewhere and half of my guests were transported from the ceremony site to the reception location and then the bus driver left. He did not return to pick up the second and third waves of guests that needed a ride. It all worked out in the end, but that was a minor hitch that could have had grave consequences if we were lucky enough to have enough personal transportation to take guests.

When we arrived they seemed unorganized, but they were respectful and the vehicles were kept clean and were very nice. The drivers were both good, but one got a little confused on the way to the reception venue. We did not like that you could only book 3 hour timeframes.

CFH was recommended by my wedding planner. We used a 17 passenger hummer to take my bridal party to the church, to pictures, and then to the reception. The vehicle was to pick us up at 12:30 and drop us off at 5. Everyone got picked up and were to the church on time. For pictures, we hadn't decided on the location until the last minute. The photographer suggested a place and the limo driver insisted that he knew where he was going and that he wanted to lead the way. He ended up pulled over on the side of the road for 10-15 minutes because he was confused and had to get out of the limo to talk to the photographer to find out where he should go from there. My husband, who was in the limo, knew where to go but our driver insisted on speaking to the photographer, who was in a separate vehicle. We eventually made it to the location and were able to take pictures. On the way to the reception, however, the driver did not take the most direct route, but rather took back roads. We ended up being dropped off at 5:11pm. CFH charged us an additional $96 for being 11 minutes late.

Upon returning from our honeymoon and seeing the additional charge, I called CFH to explain what happened. I spoke to Chris, who was very polite, and he said he would have to speak to his driver and get back to me. After not hearing from him for a few days, I called back. It was his day off, but he did return my call the following day. He did not immediately remember what we had discussed the first time we had spoken. However, once I reminded him, he agreed to refund us half of what we owed. So those 11 extra minutes were only $48 instead of $96. That refund was definitely better than nothing, although I do think it was a bit excessive considering we were late because of the driver's insistance to lead the way.

The limo itself was very nice. It was clean and spacious. The only issue I had with it was the lack of AC. We got married on a very hot day and the air was not very powerful. However, we did have cold water, which definitely came in handy.

To be honest, we weren't all that happy with Chariots for Hire. They were almost 10 minutes late (I thought later, but the company insists it was only 9 minutes, and as I was not wearing a watch with my wedding dress I guess we don't know). They did refund us about 25% for that (after I called and complained), but it really threw off our exit from the church. Also, the limo was not really big enough. We had 11 people in it (had planned on 12, maybe even 14!) we barely fit even though we ordered a 14 passenger limo. It was explained to me after the fact that industry standard is only 20 inches per person, so you always want to order one that is several people bigger than what you need. Maybe this is common knowledge, but I had never booked a limo before. Would have been a helpful conversation before I booked the limo.

All of that being said, the limo was decent and the driver was a nice guy. The online booking process was nice, and they do follow up with a phone call to confirm everything. (During my conversation they did not mention that I should get a bigger limo, but they did ask if I was using it the whole 3 hours- I was not, but that was the minimum you could book- and said that they wanted to try and book another job if I was not using it....even though I have to pay for 3 hours..)

We ended up going with Chariots because they had the best price for what we were looking for: a bus, a smaller shuttle bus, and a limo for the bridal party. From what I understand, the bus and shuttle services were good; they were there when they were supposed to be, got people places on time, and no one complained. Perfect.

As the bride, I only rode in the limo; our driver was nice, but kind of spaced out. There was no AC in the limo, because apparently it broke, which was unfortunate because it was a really hot day in June (and we were all in tuxes and dresses!). There were also some highly annoying strobe lights flashing in the back of the limo that the driver did not know how to turn off. Two of the bridesmaids ended up wearing their sunglasses for the duration of our trip to try to block it out.

There was one point when we were doing on-site photos when the limo drove around the block, which was totally fine--we were in a historic area and there wasn't ready parking. However, when we called his cellphone to let him know to come back and get us, he didn't answer. Repeatedly. We ended up getting some great extra photos while we waited, but that part could have been better.

I'm not sure I'd use them again, but at the end of the day, there was nothing terrible. It was still a good deal, so it may just be that we got what we paid for.

I am completely disappointed with Chariots for Hire. After looking for a limo service for our wedding we finally found them. A lot of places would not rent to us because it was prom season and they were holding off for the kiddies. Chariots for Hire went against the grain and we were able to book them. This is where the praise stops. We had booked 2 limos, 1 limo showed up on time. I don't know when the second one came, but it eventually did, but it was late. The groomsmen (7) the groom and his parents had to squeeze into 1 limo which is ridiculous considering all the men were over 6 feet tall and we were planning on two limos. After the ceremony, we gave them clear instructions on where the pictures were to take place, go three blocks up and stop. The limo driver took them back to the hotel. So we had to wait for the limo to come back. It was very frustrating especially since it was about to rain we wanted to get our pictures in before then. I don't know if I would recommend this limo services. I mean they eventually did come, and the drivers were nice, but the fact that they were late and could not follow directions completed messed things up for us.

I was hesitant at first using a bus instead of a limo, but we never felt like we were on a bus. The inside had leather seats, beverages, and non-cheesy lighting. The driver kept the bus rocking as well. I would use this vendor for birthday parties, tours and night-outs.

We were completely happy with Chariots for Hire. They went above and beyond the call of duty and were extremely helpful when our day ended up being rainy and cold. They did everything they could to keep people from having to walk in the rain, even ran a few shuttles back and forth for guests. They were on time, knowledgable of roads and very personable. We highly recommend them.

Chariots for Hire could not have provided a better service for my wedding!! Our motor bus arrived on time at every pick up and drop off points for both our ceremony and reception! We had the bus stop at multiple locations for the bus to pick up and drop off our guests. The driver was flexible and very accommodating with a few last minute schedules changes that we requested. Our guests arrived on time and were happy with the cleanliness of the bus. We couldn't have asked for better transportation for our wedding guests!! We highly recommend Chariots for Hire for your transportation needs.

Chariots for Hire could not have provided a better service for my wedding! As a bit of a bridezilla, I was terrified that the limos and trolly would be late for their pick-up/drop-offs but all of the drivers were on schedule and even early! It was such a relief and allowed me to truly have the best day of my life! The staff was also very accommodating with a few last minute vehicle and schedules changes that we requested. I would recommend Chariots for Hire to anyone who wants one less stressor on their big day!

Chariots for Hire had the lowest hourly rates for motor coaches and large vans out of the 5 or 6 other transportation companies I called. Their drivers were well dressed, pleasant, and on time. They were very flexible when I called to change my rental vehicle a few weeks before the wedding. They also do everything over the phone/email with electronic contracts, which is helpful. I highly suggest using them!

I was a little nervous about this vendor because of the mixed reviews I had read online, but we had a great experience with them. I called to reconfirm all details and addresses a week before the wedding, and again the day before, so I'm not sure if that made any difference. But the bus showed up at the right place on time and get everyone where they needed to be. We rented a 36 passenger bus to run loops getting our guests from the hotel to the reception venue and back again at the end of the night. We caught the last bus back to the hotel with our guests at the end of the night, and that was one patient and good humored bus driver. We had a pretty rowdy and loud group by that point and he was very sweet. Their prices were roughly in line with the other popular transportation vendors and the bus very clean and comfortable.

We chose Chariots after shopping around with several bus companies because they gave us the best price quote. After we made the reservations and put down a deposit, we needed to make some changes to accommodate more passengers. While they were flexible with making the changes, the new quotes were very expensive. We initially rented a 57 passenger bus for 7 hours and later added a second 57 passenger bus for 1 hour, just to make one trip to the venue. We were charged what we felt was a reasonable price of $115/hour for the longer rental, but because we were asking for less than the minimum rental time on the second bus, they offered us a flat fee of $600 for the 1 hour trip. The price seemed really unfair but they weren't willing to negotiate and we weren't in a position to find a new bus company just weeks before the wedding. The service was good and they were helpful over the phone but the price was steep.

Chariots for Hire responded with the following comments:

Our price is clearly stated on our website as $115 /hr + 20% service fee with a 6 hour minimum (which is standard in the bus business). We gave a discount of $228 for the 2nd bus and this customer is still not happy? We showed up early, our driver was professional, our office was helpful, and most importantly the transportation went smoothly. Yet, the rating is only a 3.1. One wonders why brides are given a bad name.

We had a great experience with our limo driver. He was a lot of fun and made our time in the limo a good one. However, the limo driver had specific instructions get us to the reception by 4:00 (when our time was up with the limo). He drove very slowly and took a longer route to get there. We apparently ended up at the hotel 10 minutes late and the limo service charged us close to $100 for 10 minutes. They were very rude when we called to question the charges. They are awful with their customer service. Had they been more understanding or polite, I would have given them a higher rating. I would not recommend them!

Chariots for Hire responded with the following comments:

We never spoke to the bride Lauren, we spoke to the mother who paid for the limousine. We politely explained to her that we charge by the additional half hour for any jobs that go over their time. Most companies charge a full additional hour. She then said the driver did not tell the bridal party during their pictures that they need to hurry up and get going! We explained that we train our drivers NEVER to do that because we do not want the bride or groom to feel rushed during their pictures. She then asked for proof that they were dropped off late so we emailed her a report from our GPS Tracking devices in the vehicle. It clearly showed a drop off 15 minutes after their time. We charged an additional $87 which was the pro-rated cost.

The groom comes from a family limousine service, so we interviewed many companies very thoroughly. We called about 20 companies in the Washington DC area and based upon those conversations, it was an easy decision to hire Chariots for Hire. Their staff was very nice and very easy to work with. They were able to meet our transportation needs and were competitively priced. They confirmed our reservations and their drivers even called the night before to ask if we needed anything special for the limo!

We had 2 buses, 1 stretch limo, and a town car sedan - all 4 drivers were very professional and always showed up early. They were flexible the day of the event too. We made some last minute changes and they made sure to accommodate all our guests needs.

We would recommend them to anyone looking for transportation - they have a large fleet with many different types of vehicles. They showed up early and we did not have to worry about the transportation even once.

Chariots for Hire provided great service - we transported all of our guests to the venue from the hotel, and they were extremely flexible at the end of the night when our guests were a little out of control. Adding to this was the fact that my husband and I booked a sedan at the last minute (like 3 days before) to pick us up at the end of the night, and they upgraded us to a limo!

Definitely recommend.

They did not ask us for directions which meant they took us non-scenic routes which were actually longer than the more scenic route on the GW Parkway. Make sure you tell them specifically the driving directions.

Chariots for Hire provided a charter bus for our wedding party and some out of town guests, from our reception site to the church and back to the reception site. Overall, they were nice to work with.

My only problem with them was that our charter bus was booked for another job iimmediately following the last drop-off at ther reception site and so the driver was very pushy and rushed the guests/bridal party to get on and off the bus... which I think is unprofessional. In relaity, they should have not booked 2 jobs so close together!

Reliable transportation companies (I know from working in the events industry) are tough to come by, so I will give them that -- I felt confident leading up to our event that they would show up and do what we paid them to do.

We rented two buses--one 55 passenger coach and a smaller 25-passenger bus. We called around to quite a few places and chose Chariots for Hire as they had the lowest price (although it was still a bit steep for our budget) and because the staff and company came across as reliable and friendly. Making the reservation was easy. When we learned our guest list was smaller than anticipated we had hoped to modify our reservation to two-25 person buses but they no longer had 2 of those buses available, but they did let us downgrade our 35-person bus to a 25 person bus without any problems. We rented the buses for an entire evening to take guests to and from Leesburg to our wedding ceremoy/reception in Bluemont. They called the night before to give us the names of the drivers and their cell numbers. The day of the event the drivers called to confirm their arrival. We had two friends coordinate the buses for us and they said the drivers were prompt and friendly.

The real bonus was the "party bus" we got when we downsized our second 55-coach bus for a 25-passenger bus--it proved to be one of the more memorable parts of the evening!

We would definitely recommend them.

The driver picked up my husband and the other groosmen on time but took the scenic route to get to the church. Then told my husband that the we (the girls) were running late and that's what she was late picking us up. That wasn't true since we weren't late and were actually waiting for the limo. Our driver also took the scenic route to the church after picking the girls up which made us arrive later than I had planned. All in all it was an okay company.

An A-plus to the courteous drivers who showed up on time to take us from the hotel to the church, and then to the rehearsal dinner, and the next day to take guests and everyone else to the church and back to the hotel after the ceremony. Vehicles were nice and clean. CFH also beat a quote we got from Reston Limousine. Our limo driver did get lost on the way to Sentate Park from the chuch after the ceremony, and we had to give him directions.

The only thing I was really annoyed about was that CFH kept calling me the whole week before the wedding, even though I asked them to coordinate with our wedding coordinator and not me. The day of the wedding, some guy called me from there, and kept calling me “sweetheart.” I am like, uhhh, I am not your sweetheart, I am your customer – please coordinate with the planner, thanks!

We hired a coach bus for our son's wedding. Chariots for Hire did exactly what they promised: clean bus, on-time, several different stops, pleasant and knowledgeable driver. Kenny the driver stayed in contact with us throughout the day, even changing itinerary due to some rain. Can't say enough about the service and the value.

Chariots for Hire was the cause of only problem that we had on our wedding day but it was a major one. We hired a 23 passenger bus to take the bridal party to the wedding. They arrived promptly and got them there on time. We hired two 55 coach busses to take all of our guest from the hotel to the wedding. After confirming the time three times, they showed up a half hour late and then one bus broke down. They did not communicate anything and kept our guest waiting for 45 minutes before figuring out what was wrong. This caused our entire wedding to start late and we missed some of our pictures because of sunset. I understand that them breaking down may have been out of their control but there was absolutely no excuse for them to show up so late. They have offered a partial refund, but then sent a check for a third less of what they said they were going to send.
I know that it is hit or miss with many of the limo companies but I was disappointed with Chariots for Hire.

Chariots for Hire responded with the following comments:

I am responding to this review for a number of reasons. I don’t believe that the bride has her facts straight, due to the fact that on the day of the wedding, all of the interaction and communication was though the event planner.
One of our buses had a minor mechanical issue on the way to the pick up in Lansdowne. Promptly, the event coordinator was alerted of the delay. As the special events manager at Chariots I want to stress that no event is more important than a wedding. Inevitably, buses and limousines still could have mechanical issues on these special days. I want to stress that the difference about my company is how we handle these inconveniences. Communication is without contest our first priority. On the day of this particular wedding, the bride was informed of our every move. After the fact, along with apologizing profusely we asked what monetary amount would make them happy for the inconvenience. She named an amount and we agreed that would be fair. In addition to the check, she was discounted the amount on the credit card. This totaled the full refund. As a female, I understand that a refund doesn’t make up for missing pictures in the sunset and for that the only thing I can do is publicly apologize again and continue to do everything in my power to ensure that our brides feel that they are taken care of. This includes sending our most experienced veteran drivers in exquisite vehicles, which reflect the level of service that Chariots For Hire has to offer. Moreover, our dedicated office team is available 24/7 paying close attention to every detail striving to make every reservation as perfect as humanly possible.

I was very happy with Chariots. Some other reviews made me nervous, but we didn't have any problems. One of the owners gave me a little bit of a break on the price (we got shuttle buses for our guests, 1 just to bring people from the hotel to the ceremony/reception, and 1 to stay the entire night to bring people to and from - there is supposed to be a 4-hour minimum, but he allowed me to have a 3-hour min for the bus that was only there early), and even before that their prices were competitive. They called a few days before to confirm everything, and both drivers were right on time. The bus that was there for the whole night waited outside the reception the whole time, even though no one was taking the shuttle back for over an hour after I had asked that it be available... AND we ended up extending our reception by 1/2 hour. Which, of course, meant that he would have to make more trips later in the night. He ended up having to make 2 trips after his contracted time, which ended up being more than an hour later, but he got everyone back to the hotel. They also pro-rated the extra time, which was great - no high OT fees or anything.

The "booked" limo broke down the day before our wedding, however, Chariots for Hire IMMEDIATELY subcontracted with another company to provide exactly what had been booked. At this time, we still do NOT know who actually provided these service for us, so please keep that in mind. When we find that out, we'll amend this review accordingly.
PROS:
1) Everything was on time.
2) Driver was courteous.
3) Driver was safe & did not get lost even with a 40 mile distance between wedding & reception venues.

CONS:
1) It was a 22-passenger limo carrying 16 people, yet there were only 8 champagne flutes stocked in the back; the other 8 spaces were empty & the driver had no additional ones. It should carry glasses @ a 1:1 glass:passenger ratio, even if that means they're in a box with the driver unless needed.

2) There also was no music playing at all, which would have certainly been nice to have in the background.

3) Although raining, we requested the driver use the towels we provided to dry off spots on the car for decorations. He informed us they may not stay on for the duration of the ride; but having our groomsmen do this in the rain for the couple to at least have/see right out of the church instead, wasn't ideal.

We investigated at least five companies to provide shuttles for our guests to and from the wedding venue, and Chariots for Hire was the least expensive. The shuttles arrived on time to pick up the guests (and our pick-up/drop-off plan was complicated in that we had one vehicle going to our primary guest hotel and another shuttle going to both the primary and the secondary hotel locations), had the guests to venue on time, made an "early" run back to the hotels, and took the remaining guests home at the end of the reception with zero problems or hitches. Really, this company was sort of the ideal vendor: they did everything they were supposed to do and we did not have to think about them at all on the wedding day. We would recommend the company to anyone.

On our way to the country club we did get lost because the driver had an older model GPS and this area is constantly changing. We knew how to get there (I recommend bringing your own directions just in case!) so there was no problem. Both drivers were very nice and I thought it was great that after the ceremony they had cold bottle water waiting for us because we were definitely tired and thirsty!

We requested a hummer limo to pick us up from the church to the reception and set up for a transfer pick up after the reception in a luxury sedan. The limo ride was fantastic, the driver arrived early and stayed late at no extra charge. HOWEVER, we had paid in full and received a confirmation for both pick ups, but the sedan never showed. We tried calling the company several times and when we finally got through to them, they said there was a scheduling error (even though we had confirmed it several days earlier) and no one was going to come. They told us they would be able to send another vehicle, however they could not guarantee they would be there any time soon, or even within the hour (after we had already waited about 45 minutes for the sedan). Our wedding day was picture perfect except for this glitch, I would definitely not recommend them for your special day!

As a result, it took as 30 minutes to get there, when it should have only taken 10.

Chariots for Hire responded with the following comments:

After looking into the directions issue with our driver we have a few concerns about this rating. The first is that our driver was outside the hotel ready to pick up 55 minutes prior to the party coming down from their room. Our driver went inside to alert the hotel staff that he had arrived who then told him that they’d be down shortly. The reservation was made for 3:30 pm and the party didn’t arrive until 4:15pm. Once the party did arrive, someone forgot the directions in the room and our driver said that he could go by the directions of his GPS to save the time of running back upstairs. The woman said that would be fine and they decided to go without the other directions. Our drivers use new GPS systems that ensure our customers that they are taken to the correct address. Our driver agreed with the clients and at no point refused to use the customer’s directions. He did everything in his power to get the party to their location as soon as possible using the best route.
At Chariots For Hire we strive to make every clients experience pleasurable and we take great pride in taking special care of our brides and grooms. I don’t feel that 0.4 rating on Wedding Wire was justified. I found this rating to be in especially poor taste because the party was rushing to get to their location on time, when our driver was outside waiting for an hour. He was never given any direction other than his GPS, which realistically was not 20 minutes longer than the “other” route.

The service was flawless. Booking the limo was easy and the driver contacted me the day before the event to ensure we were all on the same page. The day of she arrived early and called to let me know when she got to the house and reassured me that there was no rush even though she was there 1/2 hour early. Not only was she very professional, but she fit right in with the motley crew of gromsmen we had joking right along with us. I could not have asked for a nicer driver and better serivice. I will be using them again need be.

Chariots for Hire was a lifesaver on my wedding day!! My parents and I were working with a somewhat limited budget, and thought that we would not be able to afford a limousine for the amount of time we would need to rent one (without spending a ton). Chariots for Hire gave my mother an amazing deal for an 8-hour period, and were very flexible with the details of the day.
Our chauffer, Fred Avery, was spectacular. He showed up early. He let my photographer take lots of pictures of him. He watched the train of my dress like a hawk. He got people out onto the dance floor. He took us out of the way, back to our home to pick up my husband's forgotten medicine, before dropping us off at the airport. He stayed late. He was courteous, professional, funny, and kind.
Our limousine was gorgeous. It was sparkling on the outside and pristine on the inside, and everything I hoped it would be.
I would definitely recommend Chariots for Hire, in every way. I loved them!

My experience with Chariots for Hire was exceptional. The service provided from the time of booking for the event was efficient and professional. The chauffeur provided was well groomed, punctual, and extremely respectful. My daughter commented on the extreme care he took with the trailing of her gown and train whenever she was getting into or out of the limo. Both my daughter and my son-in-law informed me that the interior of the limo provided was clean and well maintained. I found the prices for the service very reasonable, and, they stayed on top of all details leading up to and on the event. I was extremely happy with their service and would not hesitate to recommend "Chariots for Hire" to anyone who might have a need for a limo service.
Sincerely,
Donna DeGroot

Chariots for Hire was great. We used them for two large motor coaches to transport our guests and for a smaller bus to take the bridal party. They operated like a shuttle and went to each drop off and pick up spot we requested. The drivers were very pleasant.

For big buses, they are the cheapest in town and their buses are VERY clean and nice!

My wife and I used Chariots for Hire for our wedding in October '07 and the bottom line was that we got an o.k. price and awful, awful, horrible service. I shopped around quite a bit for an affordable company as I was renting two 55 passenger motorcoaches, a 25 person shuttle bus and a limo. These guys offered one of the better prices I could find, by about a couple hundred dollars. With that said, here is why we were disappointed (and I would pay the extra $200 in a heartbeat next time):

1. About 5 days before the wedding, we realized that we wouldn't need the shuttle bus for as long as we had reserved (8 hours to 5 hours). I called the company, and everyone said it wouldn't be a problem and they would call me back. No call back for two days, with repeated attempts back. Then I finally reached the owner and he was the biggest jerk I've dealt with during the entire wedding process, and moreso. Contractually, I had every right to knock a couple hours off of it, as I was within the cancellation period, however I was still being reasonable about the fact that 5 days out, I would still give them something for the trouble (we're talking 3 hrs off a huge contract for one vehicle). This guy gave me, the groom, the "people like you ruin our business" riot act. Once again, we're talking a couple hundred bucks on an almost $4000 contract. Still I was flexible and he was not. If the owner had half the civility of some of his staff, like Ana who was nice, then the business might be doing better. Bottom line - the owner of this company sucks.

2. The buses and limo driver took the WORST possible route through DC to our reception venue in chevy chase. Maybe...."Maybe"...it was the shortest route, but I made the same drive dozens of time and never once thought of going this way, and always made it in way less time. So, our guests saw the worst, most blighted, area of DC. Instead of changing leaves and beautiful Connecticut Ave, they saw liquor stores with bars on the windows. When I asked the driver about this, she said it was the 'historic area'. What?? That statement was ridiculous. Our guests/family got off the bus asking us about the blighted city we lived in, and asking us if we were safe. This was after the shuttle bus got lost at the one photo stop on the way even though I had sent them detailed maps and instructions the week before which no driver had or knew about (even though they guaranteed they would...)

3. The limo driver dropped me and the bride off and then said she would be back at 11:30 pm. When I asked her what she meant, she said "I got to eat" and "you don't need me until then". Since, we had contracted the limo for the entire time, I asked her that she go get food quickly and return back to the reception site asap in case we needed her. She seemed very put off by this suggestion. Remember, she is driving the bride and groom around and was unhappy about being there in case of emergency. (Or even without an emergency, remember that we contracted these vehicles...they were on our dime for a few hours, not alot to ask for them to be around)

4. Late in the evening, a young cousin fell ill and we sent him back to the hotel in the limo (emergency!) at about 10:00 pm. At 11:00 I looked outside and the limo still wasn't back (about 20 mins back and forth to hotel, tops). When I asked the bus driver where she was, they told me she went home as instructed. She never got that instruction...so I was visibly upset. They told me we could ride the bus if we wanted to. Thanks! Of course we can ride the bus I rented. The limo driver didn't pick up her phone but did finally arrive back after the bus driver told her we were upset. We got off the bus as it was pulling out and got in the limo awkwardly. Not a smooth wedding 'exit'.

5. One bus driver let the guests cut loose, listen to music and have some cocktails on the bus on the way back. Those guests arrived at the after party ready to go! The other driver wouldn't allow ANY MUSIC, any photo-taking, or any drinks (even non-alcoholic) and was rude to all of our guests. They arrived back to the hotel and went straight to bed. The owner's (jerk's) explanation for this later is he had another run in the morning and didn't want to have to clean the bus. Guess the other contract was more important than ours.

6. I was told repeatedly that we would get the name and number of every driver on Friday before the wedding - never happened. I told them repeatedly to call our wedding coordinator on the day of with any and all details including when they were en route. The day after my wedding I had 4 messages from our drivers on MY cell phone, telling us they were running 30 minutes late (yes, they ruined 45 minutes of reception time which just kills me in hindsight, as I wish my reception was still going over a week later!) and our coordinator could never get in touch with anyone.

All in all, I would not recommend these folks unless you really are strapped for every hundred dollars you can save. Their customer service is awful, their owner is a jerk, and frankly, they were the only aspect of the entire wedding that left me upset at any time (all of our other vendors are getting 5 stars and A++++'s!). I would shell out $100 or $200 extra and get a service that won't try their best to ruin what is otherwise the best day of your life. Chariots for Hire aren't worth it in my book. (Heck, I even came back and edited this review 4 months later - that says something)

Not sure why they had to do this as both me and my coordinator had given them this information before. Still it was an easy problem to solve and they were on time and did a great job.

Almost Ruined my Wedding! First of all the limo was supposed to make one trip with the bridesmaids from the hotel to the site, then come back for the groom and groomsmen. He was late in leaving with te girls and then got lost on the way (even though they supposedly have GPS). He then NEVER WENT BACK FOR THE BOYS!!!! My groom was 30 mins late to the wedding, and only got there because the hotel had the presence of mind to put them on their shuttle and take them over. When my groom saw the limo sitting in the parking lot he told him to leave now. 2 hrs later he is still sitting in the parking lot and when the groomsmen came out and told him once again to leave he yelled at them and drove off.

If that wasn't bad enough I had a bus to first shuttle guests to and from the wedding and then take us from the hotel to the Inner Harbor of Baltimore. After the final shuttle run the driver started to pull away. My husband had to chase after him and the best man had to stand in front of the bus to keep it from pulling away. He then proceeded to tell us he wasn't contracted to go to the inner harbor, but then after double checking, he realized it said 'group to inner harbor'. So he told us he would take us there but not back! When I looked back at the receipt the company sent me i realized it said 8.5 hrs instead of 10 that I had negotiated. Not only that, but they tried to rip me off by charging me for 10 hrs for the 8.5!!!

The only bad thing I have to say about the limos was that it was very hot in them although the AC was working. We rented 2 Chrysler 300 limousines and it was very hot. Another thing ws that the limos were supposed to fit 10 people, and although we only had 8, it was going to be ver tight to accomodate 10 of us. They were on time and corteous and knew they're way around. I had quiate a few changes to the reservation and every time I called they would be very friendly. I would recommend them but make sure first that the AC works!!!

We had so much fun and our driver was so professional and went out of his way to make sure everything ran smoothly!

Without crying again here are the higlights:

Bus arrived at church before picking up guests from hotel to take them to church.
Shuttle (with family) got lost on the way to church- had to have priest to direct driver. Causing us to start an hour late.
Shuttle (with bridal party) got lost, drove off without us, and "didn't know Virginia well"
Bus gave great tour through DC and allowed guests to get off (supposed to be windshield tour only) but then got held up in traffic and was late to reception.

Owner apologized and stated he would take half off our bill. We are still waiting.

Update- now July- Owner, Courtney West, states that he meant half off one bus. Severly dissapointed.

Chariots for Hire was difficult to get a hold of on the phone to make and confirm my reservation, but the limo showed up right on time, no problems. It was also good that they include the driver's tip in the price so there's no need to remember cash on your wedding day.

This limo company is great. The limos were extremely clean. The drivers both arrived 1 hour before the scheduled time to leave just to make sure they found our locations in time. They knew exactly where they were going and we did nto have one problem. They are the best priced limo company that I could find in the area with new limos. I highly highly recommend chariots for hire!

Ragin Metro was great. We hired them on Saturday to take our OOT guests on a tour around DC. It was a big hit with our guests. They dropped everyone off at their hotels, and two hours later picked everyone back up and took us all to the Rehearsal Dinner at Portner?s in Old Town.

On Sunday (wedding day) a Ragin Metro bus picked us (the bridal party) up at the Fairmont and took us to the Capitol and a few other locations for pictures. It was great.

Both drivers were great, and Ken, the manager (maybe owner?) was great to work with.

Chariots for Hire. We weren't going to get a limo but decided that it'd be much easier to have one since wanted to get pix done downtown. My sister/MOH paid for it as her wedding gift, so we had one after all. Our driver was Allen and he was great, he was about 15-20 mins early and willing took pix on my sister's camera when we stopped for pix. We were running late (had the limo till 3:30pm) but he still let us stop for a quick photo stop at the Smithonian, we were so quick and efficient there he went for one more stop and we still got to the hotel before 3:30pm! THE BEST MAN LEFT THE RINGS IN THE CAR! He kept putting the box down and I kept thinking that he's gonna leave it there and he did! It's a long story, but basically DOC and MOH tried to keep it from me but, when about 2 hours into pictures, I saw Allen, I realized what happened! It all turned out well and in the worst case scenario, we would've just borrowed rings for the ceremony. BM later said the tip he gave the driver (it was included in the price so I didn't tip him but BM did anyway) was the best $20 he ever spent! :) I definitely recommend this company. When I was calling and making reservations, I had to call back several times with different questions and had to switch credit cards on them, the person on the phone was very accomodating.

Jeff was super nice to talk to on the phone, and made everything I wanted to happen, happen. We had a 10-person limo to pick up the boys from the hotel, take them to the church, then come back to my house (1 mi. from church) to pick up the bridesmaids/flower girls. I then asked the limo to come back to my house to pick up my parents and me separately. Our driver was very professional. Next we had a 14-person Excursion to take us from the church to Georgetown for pictures. The limo was stocked, the sound system was good and our driver was awesome. He waited for us while we took pictures then drove us back to the reception. He then let my husband and I sit in the limo while Waterford prepared our room for us. Bonus -- they were the most affordable limo service we could find (partly because of the 10% discount I received through my company)

Shuttle: Great.

We also used this company to shuttle our guests from the hotel to the ceremony and on a little tour of DC after the ceremony and before the reception. We heard very good reports from the guests about the shuttle bus driver.


Limo: Hideous.
The limo driver was parked at the wrong entrance to the hotel (it was raining, the main entrance was covered, the driver parked at the entrance with no cover)

My brother had to run out and knock on the window (in the rain in his tux) to get the attention of the driver. The driver was in the back, not the driver's seat, apparently couldn't hear him knocking....

The driver drove over the curb at the church.

The driver did not get out of the car to open the doors for us at any point...

Chariots for hire helped us keep our guests happy, get the wedding party to the ceremony on time, and reduce our carbon footprint. My dad organized the transportation and Chariots for Hire was easy to get in touch with, flexible, and patient, which is exactly what we needed. The driver was friendly and the shuttles between our hotels and wedding site made logistics for our guests much easier.

They are very dependable but not the most inexpensive. Overall I wanted a reputable trasportation company and they certainly were. I was hoping to get a volume discount becuase we needed so many vehicles but their prices were competative enough that I gave them my business. The limos were clean and the drivers were very nice and professional.

I booked with them and it was fairly easy. They were able to accomodate transporting both bridal parties at different times. It was cheaper to book earlier (before the prom hours) and as long as you don't run over, you are good to go. The limo itself was nice, but I did notice it's age as the seats were getting a little wrinkled tear. But overall a good experience. Driver was helpful and courteous and he waited patiently for the 2nd trip (bridal party) since we ran a bit behind getting ready.

Our driver came on time and let us do whatever we wanted with out alotted amount of time. One thing that was a pain was that we had to rent the shuttle bus for four hours even though we really only needed two. The bus picked up the groomsman, then came to pick up the bridesmaids, and then dropped us off at the ceremony site. We were able to send the shuttle back to the hotel to pick up some elderly guests and friends and have them dropped off at the ceremony site as well. This was very helpful. The driver was so nice and accommodating to what we needed. He even helped me with my dress.

I was disappointed. We rented a limo for the wedding party and a shuttle bus for guests. The limo was on time and very clean, but the driver didn't seem to know the best route to the church. A bridesmaid had to direct him. Both the limo and the shuttle were supposed to be in front of the church at the end of the ceremony to take everyone to the reception site. They weren't there at the appointed time (we told them in advance verbally and in writing) and someone had to go and find where they were parked, delaying our photos. The shuttle driver took a horribly long way home after the reception. I wished that both drivers were more familiar with DC or had at least researched the route prior to our wedding day. Also, the AC unit in the bus was leaking/spraying on our guests. We eventually asked that it be turned off and rolled down the windows. We got what we paid for.

Our limo driver on the way to the reception even slowed down because we were catching up to the bus with the guests (and groom)..so he slowed down so they wouldn't see us. Great service, and pretty decent for the price!

Chariots for Hire was great! I rented a limo and a 25 passenger bus for the day. We had a fairly complicated set-up, with pick-ups and drop-offs in both MD and VA, and I had to change the schedule and pick up locations for both after making the initial reservation. There were no problems on the day since they called a couple of days beforehand to confirm the details. The limo driver even arrived early (about 20-30 mins) and called to let us know but was very relaxed when we ran late.

Everyone I spoke with on the phone was friendly and professional, offered suggestions to offer us the best value, and the drivers were great - safe, polite and patient. Their prices were very competitive with other companies in the area. I recommend them highly!

Chariots for Hire is a dependable and reliable transportation services provider. We rented a small passenger bus to shuttle out-of-town guests between the hotel and the wedding ceremony/reception and it was well worth the reasonable price. They were easy to work with, hassle-free, and showed up on time with clean vehicles and courteous drivers. We would definitely use Chariots for Hire again for another event.
