I wasn't one of those brides who had their whole wedding planned from the time they were 12, however, once a wedding did seem like it was in the cards, the only thing I knew I had to have was a vintage checker taxi to bring my NYC love to life. For the last 10+ years I have collected anything and everything yellow taxi related. The iconic imagery of a checker cab was a focal point of our wedding design and decor. We wanted all our guests to pose with the vintage taxi upon arrival and then those images would be printed to serve as favors (with cute taxi holders). Peter at Film Cars was amazing! I emailed him so far in advance, he had to ask me to contact him when it was closer. As we continued to stay in touch, he even allowed us to set up an appointment to see the car in advance of booking. He was SO personable with all our guests. He let our flower girls pose with their parents sitting on the hood, he allowed our other guests to get in, pose inside and outside, etc. My 92 year old Grandad even got in the driver's seat. All our guests raved about how friendly Peter was. He was so excited by our love of the cab and so appreciative of the collaborative creative process. Posing with the cab was one of my favorite parts of the day!

Highly recommend Peter & his fabled checker cab! What an amazing ending to our NYC wedding. Peter made the booking process very easy & enjoyable, he is so knowledgeable and we loved the history of the cab as we are film buffs. Also, I found the price very affordable! Plus our photos came out amazing, and he even went out of his way to take some iPhone pics for us at the end of night. He decorated the cab beautifully with a "Just Married" sign on the rear window & cans hanging at the back. He is a safe driver & an unbelievably kind person as well. It's so true that it's the vendors you pick that make your wedding special, and Peter was definitely a testament to that. Thank you so much for a truly magical ride!!

I contacted Peter, with Film Cars, about driving for our wedding in NYC this October. Prior to the wedding, he thoroughly answered every question I had. His prices were very fair. On the day-of, he showed up before his scheduled arrival time. The car was pristine, and exactly what was pictured in Peter's emails. Peter was incredibly nice and professional. We took many pictures both inside and outside the checker. Peter decorated the car with beautiful yellow flowers on the bumper, and wrote "just married" on the back windshield. It was so charming, and everyone at the wedding commented on how perfect the car was. I would absolutely recommend Film Cars and Peter Yanello, to anyone looking for a reliable, professional, and thoughtful vintage car for events!

One of the best decisions I made was to hire Peter at Film Cars. From the ever first email exchange I knew my experience would be wonderful. Being that your ride is heading to one of the most important moments in life.... having Peter's friendly face and calming disposition greet you makes it an easy ride. Peter you brought joy to my day and mean my visual come to life. It was magical to have this special car drive us around the city streets and play such an important role in our photos that I will cherish forever. We turned heads in a city that is hard to stand out.

Peter dealt with all the children who just wanted to check out the car with such ease and delight. He made our day special. If you want a unique ride to continue the NY wedding experience call Peter.

Peter is fantastic to deal with and like many other reviewers, our decision to hire Peter was one of the best we made while organizing our wedding. Unlike so many other vendors, Peter did not see our big day as a big pay day. He not only offered much better value than all of the other checker cab companies we contacted, but he also played a huge role in making the day special for for us with his professionalism, sensitivity and great personality.
I would have not hesitation in recommending Peter and Film Cars to anyone, and I look forward to finding a reason to work with Peter and his perfect Checker Cab again soon.

My husband had the greatest idea, which was to rent a vintage 1960s Yellow Checker Cab for our Manhattan wedding... what a great idea for our photos! I contacted about 20 companies that offered services like this and above and beyond immediately, I KNEW Film Cars was for me!! The owner, Peter, was probably the NICEST person I've EVER spoken to in my life! He seemed genuinely excited to be providing the cab for our event!! Everything was easily and quickly booked, and at a very affordable price! The cab showed up on time with "Just Married" written on the back window, per my request, and let me tell you, it looked SO cool! We got IN it, we got ON it, we posed around it... these have to be the coolest looking photos (I'll post when I get them from our photographer) ever!!! If you're looking for vintage cars, don't go ANYWHERE else!!!!! The cab was clean, the driver respectful and Peter is just the most lovely person!! So glad I booked Film Cars!!

We hired a vintage checker cab from filmcars.com. We had the car for four hours to travel round the city and have pictures taken with our photographer.
The cab was absolutely beautiful! Mint condition. And Peter, what can I say! Service above and beyond anything I could have expected. Expert guide for our tour of the city.
We eloped to City hall and this car just was the icing on the cake. Perfect day!

Peter Yanello at FilmCars (www.filmcars.com) provided us with an excellent end-of-the-night "get away" car - a 1969 NYC Checker taxicab! This car has been featured in many movies, including When Harry Met Sally (my all time favorite movie!), and as the inspiration for the cover of the New Yorker (June 25, 2007). It is authentic and was such a great end to our wedding day.

Initially I had contacted Peter with numerous inquiries about the different vehicles he had available to rent. Like many parts of my wedding, I didn't really know what I wanted or was looking for when I first contacted him. Despite this confusion, Peter was kind, responsive and very willing to discuss different options. After some back and forth, I decided to go with the more traditional limo option for bridal party transport to the wedding and Peter had received another booking for most of his cars. It didn't seem that it was our destiny to use his checker taxicab.

However, about one month before the wedding, I was still searching for a unique way for my husband and I to leave the wedding (as a surprise to him). I contacted Peter again to see if he could accommodate just two hours late on that Saturday night. To our delight, he could and he did!

He arrived exactly on time, as agreed. We used the car to take some photos for about 20 minutes, then returned for the final 30 minutes of the wedding, before climbing in to go home. Peter was gracious to our guests, including my Mother-in-Law who loves old cars and I think had a long conversation with Peter about the car. On the drive back to the hotel, Peter offered to take my new husband and I through Times Square, to enjoy the ride a bit more. (But we opted to go home, we were so tired!) Peter also had a great selection of classic Sinatra-type songs on the radio during our ride. Peter was professional, kind and accommodating. He was great to have as part of our day.

We worked with Film Cars to rent a vintage checker cab for our getaway car and the service was fantastic. Peter was our main point of contact and our driver day-of. He was responsive, answered all our questions, was prompt and accommodating. He decorated the cab beautifully, drove us around Williamsburg with our photographer for photo ops, provided us with cold water refreshments, and even waited for us to change at the hotel before dropping us off at our after-party. The service far exceeded our expectations, and we had a blast! The value is also better than any other quote you'll get in NYC!!

The 1969 Checker Cab we chartered for our wedding was without a doubt one of the highlights of our NY wedding. I came across Film Cars while browsing the internet for neat wedding ideas and loved the idea of coming out of the church with my wife and getting in a vintage cab to head over to the reception. Peter from Film Cars was an absolute pleasure to work with. He was professional and responsive with my inquiries and made the booking process very easy. Additionally, he was genuinely excited to see how much we enjoyed having the car for our wedding. My wife and I loved the types of photographs we were able to get with the taxi cab (in the cab, on the hood, etc.). Peter was even kind enough to send us some pictures he took on his phone during our picture sessions so we got a sneak peak at the kinds of pictures we can expect from our photographer. Outstanding vendor!
