Transportation for the Elderly

Hi. My name’s Betty. I’m sixty-two years old and live with my husband, Matt. My mother lives on our property, but at age ninety-one still insists on living alone. Mom has a good mind and for her age does well physically. She drove up until four years ago when we all decided it would be best for her to not be behind the wheel. It’s worked out well with her living on our property. Matt or I would take her places. We made sure she had groceries, made it to doctors appointments, and to her social engagements. About six months ago, however, Matt fell ill and our lives changed. I am his full-time caregiver, and Matt can no longer drive. I had to find help for my Mom which was difficult to do. I am going to share what I found and hope it helps you should you ever need transportation.

3 Tips For Leasing Your Wedding Transportation

Planning a wedding requires juggling more than one task at a time. Unfortunately, transportation is sometimes forgotten until the last minute. At that point, you and your wedding party could be left to take whatever is available instead of what you want. To avoid this dilemma, here are some suggestions on how to make sure transportation is properly handled on your wedding day.

Book in Advance

Even if your wedding is being held during the off-season, you need to book in advance. Booking ahead means that you and your wedding party will have the pick of vehicles available and you are guaranteed enough transportation for everyone that is involved.

Ideally, you should book car services, especially between popular destinations like Reno and Lake Tahoe, at least six months before the wedding. Before booking though, you need to know the exact size of your wedding party and the venues for the ceremony and reception.

Mix It Up

Although a limousine is the traditional mode of transportation for wedding day, you can mix it up. Your transportation should have the same vibe as the rest of your wedding and reception. For instance, if your wedding is informal, the limo might seem to be too formal for the occasion.

Talk to the car service that you are leasing from to find out what types of vehicles are available. Some offer SUVs, specialty cars, and even party buses. You do not have to stick with just one type of vehicle. Choose the mix that works for you.

Book in Person

The Internet makes it easy to do everything from order food to rent a limousine online. Although this might be convenient, it is not the best way to book the transportation for your wedding. You can research the available rental services online, but you need to book the transportation in person.

Booking in person gives you an opportunity to view the vehicles. You can get a better idea of whether they are right for your wedding. You also can review the contract with the rental company right then. If there are changes that need to be made or you need clarification about the terms, you can ask and receive an answer at that point.

Renting a car for your wedding day is likely one of the simpler tasks you must cross off your list. To keep it that way, consult with a limousine rental service as soon as possible to learn more about your options.
