    Film Cars NY - Thank you Peter!

    Thank you so much Peter!

    We absolutely loved our experience in the yellow cab - it was truly special for us on our wedding day.

    We loved all the history around the cab, and we loved how passionate Peter was telling us all the amazing stories. None of which we knew beforehand - so this was extra special for us to learn.

    Peter was prompt and professional, always ensuring the best and quickest routes possible were taken to allow us to get some amazing wedding photos in various locations around New York.

    Thank you for making us feel so welcome and comfortable, we will remember our trip around NYC in the cab forever! and thank you for the special touch with the flags.

    How many people can say they have travelled across the Queensboro Bridge in the same cab as Kevin McCallister singing their favourite Christmas karaoke song by Darlene Love on their wedding day!?!

    Forever grateful,
    Riah & Steven

    The best rental car company in NYC hands down!

    As someone who is born & raised in NYC I am skeptical of a company and particularly of a person who receives ALL FANTASTIC reviews. I thought I’d give it a try after reading all the great reviews and reach out to a person named “Peter” who everyone seems to rage about. I received a response immediately the next day breaking down the details and options available. This was the first rental car company that I’ve worked with that didn’t give me a headache!
    I rented the checkered taxi cab to surprise my husband for our anniversary since his favorite movie is taxi driver. He loved it! The cab was in mint condition. Peter our driver was fabulous . He was welcoming, professional, pleasant and went above and beyond to make our night special. He suggested a place to take pictures with the nyc skyline in the background. He took wonderful pictures of me and my husband. And he was in no rush to drop us off to our destination. He had a wonderful selection of old school songs from in the 70’s-80’s and took us through Times Square (a famous scene from the movie taxi driver).
    My point is if you are skeptical of this company like I was originally, don’t be. Peter is a true gem and it’s rare to find that in NYC these days. I would highly recommend you won’t regret it!
