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!

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!!

I surprised my groom with a '68 checkered cab - very New York! He loved it and we had a great experience with Peter. Such a nice man! He decorated the back of the car and drove us around town for some pre-wedding photos. A great touch for the day! Highly recommend!

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.
