    Perfect Vintage Car Rental

    We rented 2 vans and the Vintage Bentley for our wedding and it was all great. The drivers were super friendly and the Bentley made for some awesome wedding photos!

    Punctual & Professional

    My husband and I hired Gold Shield for our wedding day and it was the best decision! The 30-person party bus picked us & our large wedding party up from our getting-ready location, took us to the ceremony venue and back, and then we had the ‘58 Bentley as our getaway car! Both drivers were very professional, very nice, arrived with more than enough time to spare, and got us all safely where we needed to go. I HIGHLY recommend Gold Shield!

    Excellent experience!

    We had a great experience using Gold Shield for my wedding. Top level of professionalism and wonderful service. We visited the office to see the vehicles in person and the staff was very patient with our questions. The day of we received emails so we knew the vehicles were on their way, which we thought was a great attention to detail. We utilized a sprinter van for the bridal party, a larger passenger bus for some out of town guests, and a Lincoln sedan for the bride and groom. All of the drivers were very professional, polite, friendly, and outgoing.
