Avoid this company at all costs! On the day of the wedding, the limo showed up to pick up the bride and bridesmaids at her house. The limo was not the limo that the groom had ordered and had a burnt out headlight. Additioally, the driver was extremely rude, and upon his arrival to the brides house, demanded payment from the bride before he left the house. The issue here is that the groom provided the company with his credit card information two weeks prior to the event. Payment was to be taken in full, however, the limo company chose not to do so. Additionally, the driver began to embarass the bride by inquiring "Where is my money? I didnt get my money" in front of the house guests. The proper protocol would have been to call the groom, since he was the person that made the reservation in the first place. The limo dropped the bride and bridesmaids at the photo location and then proceeded to pick up the groom and groomsmen. The limo driver was provided with a receipt of payment and then began to debate the cost with the groom. In the end, the company overcharged the groom's credit card by more than $100 above the contracted agreement. The company was notified of this overcharge and stated that they would adjust the payment. After 2 weeks of constant run-arounds by the company, no reimbursement was made to the groom. Once again, avoid this company at all costs.

We used Empire Limo for our wedding day transportation this July 2010. Empire Limo had the best price I could find around the city by hundreds! We had a large bridal party of 18 plus the photographer and videographers so we rented Empire’s Party Bus that seats 22. There was SO much room inside, the air conditioning was fantastic and it was clean. Their customer service was excellent, always really nice over the phone and had very prompt service. On our wedding day they were on time, our driver was great, personable, dressed professionally and knew all the best routes to take to avoid traffic. I didn’t know at the time but I actually found out later that our driver’s wife was in labor while he was on duty for our wedding! He never said anything and totally kept calm which I thought was applauding. For a Saturday wedding in the afternoon all the way to the reception we never hit traffic. (Those of you who live in the city you know how amazing that is!) One thing to know-bring your own coolers if you want to drink. We brought our own champagne and liquor, they provide you with soda and water. Overall, I would definitely recommend Empire Limo-thank you!!

We worked with Nicole and she was a doll. Empire limo had really reasonable prices. We went with a party bus which was an excellent choice, especially when you have a Cinderella dress and a bridal party of 14+. Everything was great, Nick was on time, the bus was clean (except for the door which gave me a grease spot on my train that never came out...had to walk down the aisle with a nice brown spot on my train) and the music and champaign were flowing.

My only problem was the close we got to 6 o'clock, Nick became "antsy" (if that's the correct spelling). Apparently he had another "wedding" to drive at 7. Who does that? Why would you schedule two weddings back to back on a Saturday when you know there's going to be traffic and unforseen events that may hold a group back? He started complaining how he could get in trouble, and if he gets in trouble we'd have to pay for his loss of commission or something. I can't remember what it was exactly, but it made me feel like if he were late...it was our fault. Explains our lower scores.

A party bus was definitely the way to go. Everyone in the bridal party agreed.

I did a lot of research b/c I heard all of the horror stories about people and the limo service they got for their wedding-not the case with Empire!! They got a good better business bereau review and I heard good things from a friend. I was so glad I used them! The driver was super nice and even carried my dress train!!! I didn't ask-he volunteered so it didn't get dirty when I walked in and out of the church! he decorated the limo and was super nice to everybody! He was on time and got us everywhere we needed to be on time-and where we went offsite for pictures was not the easiest place to find! Everybody at the company that I talked to was also great. They were very friendly and the price was sweet for the amount of time and stretch suv we got!!

I hired Empire Limousine for my wedding and it was a total nightmare. My Limo driver got lost on the way to our reception and we ended in a residential area far from our reception venue and arrieved 45 Minutes late. He also short changed us with time. Do NOT use Empire Limousine!!! I tried to save a few bucks because they were cheaper then everyone else. However, you get what you pay for and their service was absolutley horribile. The Limo was not clean either inside, the floor was coming apart and the coke cans in the back were all expired. A/C was also not working properly. Worse Limo I have ever been in. Again, do not use Empire Limo!

We searched around for party buses to accomodate our large wedding party. We chose Empire limousine based on a referral from a friend and cost. They were by far the most reasonable in terms of price compared to what we were finding. We had the black party bus that accomodated 21 people. It was very clean, new, had stereo system to hook up our ipod, had flat screen tv, and they provided ice and water in the coolers for us. They were very easy to work with (signing the contract, paying, etc). The driver was on time and very nice and the best part is that the gratuity was included in the price so it was all paid up front and we didn't have to worry about anything that day. Great service!
