It was such a pleasure to have Peter of Film Cars as a part of our big day. The entire process of working with him from start to finish was so enjoyable and I could not recommend him more for any transportation needs you might have. I heard about Peter's company from a co-worker who recommended him after using his services for her own wedding and recently for her 10 year anniversary. I had been looking for a vintage cab or car for only a couple of hours to get us around our Greenpoint neighborhood for a few stops on our wedding day that would fit into our budget. Peter was more than accommodating from his first email on and offered up his own car and personal services for a reasonable price and was completely upfront and honest. He is courteous and professional, was always warm, kind, and reassuring in every email, correspondence, and interaction. He was completely accommodating with all of our requests and happily decorated the car for us as part of his services. He was so understanding and whisked us away from all of the commotion for private moments together throughout our ride and evening. Also he did not count the minutes when we went over our allotted time like other drivers would and did not charge us anything beyond our previously negotiated rate. Getting to enjoy just a quiet drive around our neighborhood and getting a break from all of the festivities, family and friends was just what we needed that day. It was so great to just sit and talk with him about music, movies, our honeymoon travel plans, and not worry about the wedding for a few moments. We got so many compliments about the cab all evening, it was a huge hit with our guests and produced some fantastic photos. It was so funny to see complete strangers on the street take photos as we were driving by or try to hail us down for a lift, it really was a once in a lifetime experience! Hope we get to work together with him again one day in the future. Thank you Peter!

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!!

Peter is one of the most personable and thorough people I had the pleasure of meeting throughout the wedding planning process. He responded promptly and professionally to every e-mail making him super easy to work with. Despite most of his cabs being out of state for a show, he found an amazing solution to ensure that we had a vintage checker cab on our wedding day.

His enthusiasm for his fleet of vintage checker cabs is contagious! We were lucky enough to have Peter himself be a chauffer the day of the wedding. He gave us such a wonderful history lesson on the checker cab. He had such a wonderful sense of humor as well. There were no jitters on the ride over to the church due to his personable nature.

He paid attention to every detail. He even had "Just Married" written across the back windshield, along with cans trailing behind the cab for our departure from the church. The cab and Peter met and exceeded my expectations for our wedding day. You absolutely cannot go wrong when you book with Film Cars!

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.

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!

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!
