Frequently Asked Questions
All Your Questions Answered
What areas do you cover?
At Silver Cloud we will travel just about any where our showrooms and the vehicle housing warehouse are based at Rydalmere in Sydney and as such the majority of our weddings are in the Sydney metropolitan area. However we have traveled to Wollongong, Newcastle, Dubbo and a variety of other country towns throughout NSW. Regardless to where you live, arrangements can be made to assist you.
How much time before the wedding should I book the cars?
It is always exciting and rather momentous the day you decide to get married. Nevertheless there will be serious decisions to be made and it is important to prioritise those decisions that need to be made as early as possible. Choosing and booking your cars is one decision that would be high on that agenda, especially if you want to hire something special. At Silver Cloud Cars we often hold bookings up to 18 months in advance. Many couples will book up to 9 and 12 months in advance.
What happens if the cars break down on the day?
Heaven forbid! That is a bride and groom night mare and it is a question that needs to be asked and answered. At Silver Cloud in our 28 years of operation we have had a number of instances; fortunately through good management and planning every wedding has been brought to a happy conclusion. Unfortunately with any motor car, including modern cars the unexpected can happen, no one is able to grantee that a vehicle will run perfect every time, but you can feel very reassured that we are professionals and our vehicles are maintained to the highest standards and every effort is made to ensure your wedding day will go as planned.
How long will I need the cars for?
You are not locked into the basic time frame you can make use of the vehicles for as long as you like, of course extra charges will apply. Generally wedding cars arrive then take the Bride and bridal party to the place of ceremony then wait and move onto the reception. Depending on distance this normally takes around two hours.
Many couples after the ceremony are opting to visit to various photo locations first then finally on to the reception. Sometimes using the vehicles up to five even six hours. Of course this is entirely up to you.
How many people can I fit into each car?
Depending on the style of vehicle you select, each of our classic sedans will seat four adults plus the chauffeur. Classic limousines will seat more.
