Vintage vs. Modern car hire

At Limo Broker we have found there to be a huge divide between car enthusiasts, those that hold a hankering to hire vintage classics and those that revel in modernity.

The high-tech vs. high-style argument has been in full force for decades, especially in regards to limousines. For this reason we thought we would explore chauffeur cars and limos from different ages, deciding where our true vehicle love lays.

Will all current cars survive long enough on the road to achieve the status of ‘vintage’?

It is worth noting that vintage Rolls Royces and Ferraris were once brand new, pulling into question what constitutes a ‘vintage model’? In a recent article about classic car insurance High Gear Insurance, UK brokerage, said:

‘Working with a number of insurance providers we have found that each company has their own definition of classic; therefore we partner customers with providers that best suit their demands. With classic car insurance being very specialist we tend to spend more time on such policies than any other vehicle type’.

Where some say cars are stamped with the classic label when they reach 20 years of age others go as low as 10 years, illustrating the blurred lines of classic and modern car categories.

Our modern cars

  • 2015 Rolls Royce Phantom

Young people like to be tested when it comes to their tastes, with the more unusual the vehicle the greater the need to travel in it.

When considering vehicle hire tastes the occasion for hire must be considered, with different aged cars working for certain events.

The Oscars 2015 – The night of big speeches, dresses and limos

Last night the world celebrated The Oscars, the most prolific event on the entertainment calendar. The rich and famous emerged from all over the globe yesterday, adorned in Dior and Vera Wang, all displaying an adherence with the finer things in life.

With Lady Gaga and Rita Ora arguably thieving the limelight with two of the biggest dresses we have ever seen we wonder what cars could accommodate such large outfits. It seems that last night the stretched limousine stole the show, with the streets of Hollywood ram packed with seductive luxury limos. As well as offering room for such outlandish attire limos provide that classic beauty that actors and musicians want to bask in before such shows.

One limo boss says ‘It’s our biggest night of the year. I have to put on a magic show, and show who we are. It’s a red carpet for us, too,’ he says.

Chauffeuring some of the most influential individuals in the world limo drivers were under great pressure last night, needing everything to be perfect for their demanding passengers. This went for everything, from ensuring their vehicles are in pristine condition to offering refreshments that will enhance their night. One driver explained that the water had to be room temperature, not chilled, because ‘it can affect their voice’.

Getting to the after party

The night of the Oscars is just as celebrated for its after parties as it is for its awards, with many big names hosting incredible post-Oscar event.

One driver limo driver explains how in-demand limo drivers were last night.

‘Nearly everyone goes to a party after the Oscars – Vanity Fair, Elton John’s, the Governor’s Ball – and then there are the after-parties, which are usually at homes, on boats, or in hotels’.
