Book early to make sure they have vehicles that will accommodate your event. Fortunately, our wedding was on a Sunday. Chariots for Hire gave us the lowest quote for transportation services in the Northern Virginia area. They provided excellent communication leading up to the event and the day of. I was able to speak with a human being when we needed to shift a pick-up time. The drivers were very professional, the vehicles were very clean (55 passenger bus, 32 passenger bus and a stretch limousine). I will definitely use this company again and highly recommend them to any one for wedding transportation.

I wanted so badly for Chariots for Hire to work about, but they were the most disappointing vendor we worked with. Despite a clear order and schedule coordinated with the company, the day of was a mess. One of the buses was late picking up guests. We were given a larger bus in place of one of the buses, when there was a very good reason for ordering small buses - the bridge was too small for a large bus! As a result, the large bus was unable to cross the bridge, and our guests had to get out and walk to the venue. This delayed our event by almost 20 minutes. On top of that, the bus had no working A/C on a 95 degree DC summer day. To top it all off, the drivers were rude and unhelpful when our planner asked for their help to problem solve. After submitting our complaints with Chariots post-wedding, it took almost 2 months for a resolution and did not offer a fair refund.

When dealing with such special event like a wedding, you would hope that a company would follow through on the exact order, and have top-notch customer service. This was not the case with Chariots for Hire. I would recommend looking elsewhere for your day-of transportation needs.

Booking was easy, friendly staff. They helped me keep my costs down by suggesting we only do the 16 passenger excursion for transportation between wedding and reception and then have a get away car after. This saved me hundreds of dollars and I greatly appreciate it! Payment was also easy and friendly staff to help.

There was not very good A/C in the 16 passenger excursion in the middle of July, my whole wedding party (myself included) were a hot, sweaty mess when we got to the reception.

We did have a get away car for after the reception and it was the best!

You definitely get what you pay for when you use Chariots for Hire. We chose to book with them because they were the most affordable in the area. We had some trouble getting in touch with them initially, so we drove out to their office to book a shuttle bus to transport our guests to/from our wedding venue. On the day of the wedding, our shuttle bus showed up at the hotel to pick up our guests and it didn’t have any AC (it was 95°F outside). Chariots for Hire made the decision (without consulting us) to have a new bus sent out. We were on a very tight timeline and our hotel/venue was located 45 minutes from their bus depot. By the time they got a new shuttle bus out to our guests and arrived at the venue we were running 30 minutes behind schedule, which pushed back our entire timeline for the night. This all could have been avoided had they sent a working vehicle to pick up our guests (or, at the very least, consulted with us before making the decision to have a new shuttle sent out). When we checked our contract after the wedding it stated that Chariots for Hire cannot be held responsible for any “unpredictable vehicle defects or breakdowns”, which leads us to believe this is something that happens often. We will say that the driver, Marlene, was excellent; she was very polite and professional to all of our guests! We would suggest, however, you spend a little extra money elsewhere to avoid any possible hassle on your wedding day.

We hired one of your coaches to travel from Knoxville, TN to Nashville, TN. " Gentleman" Tom, our driver was more than excellent. He kept within the speed limit, he did not throw the passengers changing lanes and he was extremely accommodating of helping the elderly passengers on and off the coach. Because of this outstanding driver, I would recommend your coach service. Thank you for an enjoyable trip to pray with Franklin Graham at the capital steps.

Chariots for Hire provided clean vehicles, the drivers were professional and they arrived on time to our wedding events. The negative ranking for responsiveness is because booking was incredibly difficult! We worked with at least 6 different booking agents because they were not very responsive. When we finally got our transportation booked things ran smoothly, but I hope the booking process improve for future clients. I also was told that one of our buses tried to not allow a guest to bring a large wedding package onboard the bus. We had a few issues with this vendor but overall I would recommend Chariots for Hire because they have nice buses and reasonable prices.

My husband and I used Chariots for Hire to transport my hotel guests to/from the hotel and our venue. We got a 30 passenger van and it worked out well!
They showed up to the hotel at the time we wanted them to. At the end of the night, I wanted the van to take my guests back eearly if they wanted, but the van was no where in site. I had to call him to pick up the guests, but he was extremely close by and it worked out fine. I should have specified I wanted him to be at the venue, so be really specific when booking them about times/etc/where you want them.

In the end, Chariots for Hire came through and as far as I know the shuttles were on time and ran smoothly. There was some miscommunication a few weeks before the wedding that they weren't going to be able to honor the pricing I was quoted (a deposit had already been placed and I had a written/dated quote). We exchanged a few emails and documents and things all worked out. I would definitely recommend Chariots for Hire for your wedding or special event.

Chariots for hire did an amazing job for our July 11th wedding. We had a 57 passenger motor coach to shuttle our guest to and from the hotel to the venue. We had so many compliments on how pleasant the driver was. They showed up on time and made our guest comfortable on a very hot day getting to the venue. I arranged for their 14 passenger hummer to surprise my husband and his groomsmen. The guys were very impressed with their driver, they got over to the venue in time and with no issues. The ride was smooth even fitting 6 guys over 6 feet tall with plenty of space to spare. I 100% recommend Chariots for hire!

Chariots for Hire was great to work with throughout the planning process and most importantly on our wedding day. They drove our bridal party around for picture after the ceremony and got us to the reception on time. Their pricing was reasonable compared to other transportation companies in the area and we were very pleased with their services!
