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!!

I can not say enough about the service that was provided by Peter at Film Cars. We rented a vintage yellow checker cab to take us from our ceremony in NYC to our reception in Jersey City. They were prompt, professional, and very accommodating. The car was spacious and immaculate and they added small touches at no extra charge (scripted "just married" on the rear window and fresh flowers on the rear bumper). Our drive through the city got numerous cheers and thumbs up, especially while waiting in traffic for the Holland Tunnel. The cab added such a special touch to our wedding that I feel was priceless, however the price was extremely reasonable.

As we were having a destination wedding in New York, I was quite happy to jump in a taxi to our ceremony to save costs, but my husband had seen the vintage New York Checker cabs and persuaded me that we should hire one, and boy am I glad he did.

Peter is one of the nicest guys I have had the pleasure to meet. We booked him for three hours. He picked myself and my dad up outside our hotel, where we found passersby posing for photos next to our vintage cab. He told us all about the history of our checker cab, listing all the films it has appeared in. After the ceremony, my husband and I went round the park to have some pictures taken, and came back to our cab to find wild flowers and tin cans hanging from the back and messages from all our guests written on the windows, amazing! He even tied a UK flag to one of the wing mirrors.

Peter whisked my husband and I and our photographer all over the city for an hour and a half, stopping at all the best sightseeing spots for photographs. Nothing was too much trouble. He knew exactly where to take us for some fabulous photos. Everyone was taking photographs as we drove down the streets, we felt like royalty.

I would highly recommend Peter and his vintage cars for the ultimate experience. It really was a highlight of our wedding day, and looks amazing on our photographs. Thank you Peter.

Peter and his 1969 Checker taxicab helped give us that old New York feel that wow'ed our guests and made the day a little extra special. Peter was professional in all communication and even more pleasant on the day of the wedding. He arrived on time and was so patient while we were taking pictures and video. He even stayed a bit extra to pick us up from our last photo shoot area to bring us the venue which we didn't even expect. After the wedding, he emailed us with photos he took with his personal phone! :)

We hit the jackpot when we randomly walked past a vintage Checkered taxicab in the city one afternoon and asked the driver for a card. For our wedding day we wanted something special that screamed "NYC," and we got more than what we bargained for by working with Peter. From the start Peter impressed us with his responsiveness and kindness. The car was waiting for us after the ceremony and we couldn't believe how amazing it looked and our guests went wild. Peter greeted us with open arms, beverages, and great energy. We will never forget rolling down 5th avenue having bystanders wave and celebrate us; it was truly magical. He even shared with our photographer an amazing picture location where we stopped to capture a special moment as husband and wife. Working with Peter and Film Cars was truly the icing on our wedding cake! John and Elena

If I could give them more stars I would! We were so happy to have found the perfect car for our wedding day with such wonderful and professional service. Peter Yanello was so nice from the day I contacted him, his level of commitment and quick responses were amazing! I contacted him on a holiday and he immediateky called me back. I know that they are a busy company that cater to many other realms other than weddings but Peter truly made us feel like we were the only customers. He really went above and beyond to accomodate every need we had in our very chaotic NYC wedding day. It all turned out perfectly. Our driver Miguel was the NICEST guy and super professional. He was perfectly ontime to pick me up at the hotel...actually even early, we went to 4 different locations for photographs, in and out, up and down manhattan, and finally to the church and he always had a smile on his face and as helpful as could be. Needless to say the checkered cab was a complete sensation! I am still getting comments about how awesome it looked. a 1969 checkered cab, it was truly wonderful and I cannot thank Peter enough. He himself picked us up after the reception was over and even though we were 20 minutes late, he greeted us with a smile on his face and as patient as could be. The car was as amazing as we had hoped but honestly the service was A++! Thank you so much for making our wedding go so well!

This review is so overdue. Both my husband and I completely fell in love with our NY Checker Cab and with Peter, Film Cars owner. To say that he went above and beyond in helping us organise the transport for our big day would be a total understatement. From the start, he was a fountain of knowledge and clearly loves his work.
Before our wedding he was so, so helpful in assisting us with timings and recommendations and on the big day, he was a wonderful addition to the celebrations, taking me to the venue and assisting with photographs after.
Peter is a truly lovely man (You'll notice that I can't sing his praises enough) and works to the highest of professional standards. I understand that his fleet has some amazing vehicles and I would work with him again in a heartbeat.
Please, have no doubts. If you need a showstopping car and a businessman you can trust, look no further.

Peter was BY FAR the most excited vendor for my wedding. We hired the 1969 taxi cab. When I first inquired about the availability, all the taxis were scheduled to be at a show that weekend. Peter kept his personal taxi home and personally chauffeured us that day. He had cold water, mints, and a straw (so I didn't ruin my lipstick) waiting for us. He's amazing, the cab was amazing, and he/it absolutely made my wedding extremely special.

Peter and his vintage NYC taxicab were an important part of our wedding day. Peter met us outside our apartment building for our "first look" photos. We have lots of gorgeous photos of us posing near/in the cab, whose shiny, perfect condition and bright yellow/black coloring added a dose of sparkle to our day. Peter also drove us to the venue, and we got lots of cheers/clapping from passerbys on the street as our chariot drove us through downtown Manhattan. Peter also suggested that we write "Just Married" on the back of the window, which also yielded some terrific photo ops. Filmcars gave us a little piece of NYC magic on our wedding day and we're very grateful!
