From the very first time we made contact with Peter we were impressed. His warm, friendly and enthusiastic emails helped put us at ease immediately. We are from England and it's very difficult to know that you're booking the right people from so far away. Peter came highly recommended by our wedding photographer Sascha Reinking and he did not disappoint, in fact he was a real pleasure to have on our wedding day and the service he provided was truly amazing. Peter responded to our emails extremely promptly and did everything he promised and more!Sent on 03/27/2019
The car, a 1960's checker cab was the most perfect addition to our wedding day. It made for convenient travel around the city, made us feel extremely privileged with all passers by wanting to take photos and the enthusiasm Peter had telling us stories about the car kept the conversation on the travels engaging and interesting. Peter had a great relationship with our photographer which really helped with organisation, on our wedding day they communicated between themselves which meant that we didn't have to. At the end of our ceremony after we have finished with our photographer, Peter took the time to park up and let us take some photos with our phones. He let us get in the drivers seat and he spent 10 minutes taking photos of us having fun in his amazing car.
After our wedding day Peter sent us the most heart warming email, with a couple of photos he had taken of our day himself. He could not have given us better service if he tried. Peter had gone above and beyond in every sense and if you are considering hiring his services you will not be disappointed!!
Peter, we thank you from the bottom of our hearts and hope to see you again when we return to visit New York. All the very best to you, we hope this review helps to get you future business!

We used a checker cab for our engagement shoot and Film Cars made it so easy. Peter was very communicative and friendly over email, and he sent a driver named Miguel, who was just the best. Miguel arrived maybe two minutes late and was incredibly apologetic (he got held up in traffic), even though we didn't mind at all. He was so enthusiastic and clearly loves driving the 1969 cab we had. Another bonus was that the cab could actually drive us around, so we didn't have to walk back and forth on cobblestone and carry our stuff everywhere.Sent on 10/11/2018
I shopped around a lot and Film Cars was by far the best value. They are total pros and the customer service is wonderful. We love the photos and the cab added a special touch.

Can't say enough great things about Peter!!!
Out of all of our wedding vendors, working with Peter was by far the best experience we had - he was extremely responsive and warm, making our big day feel like the most important in his calendar. He was very flexible about the timing and plan, and such a pleasure on the day of. The cab became such an iconic prop in our photographs. Would highly recommend!!!Sent on 03/26/2019
