  • We used a checker cab for our engagement shoot and Film Cars made it so easy. Peter was very communicative and friendly over email, and he sent a driver named Miguel, who was just the best. Miguel arrived maybe two minutes late and was incredibly apologetic (he got held up in traffic), even though we didn't mind at all. He was so enthusiastic and clearly loves driving the 1969 cab we had. Another bonus was that the cab could actually drive us around, so we didn't have to walk back and forth on cobblestone and carry our stuff everywhere. I shopped around a lot and Film Cars was by far the best value. They are total pros and the customer service is wonderful. We love the photos and the cab added a special touch.

  • I can’t say enough good things about Peter and the cab we used for our elopement! To quote my husband it was “the highlight of the day!” (Which he corrected himself and said “a highlight” after I glared at him 😜) The day of our wedding I was a bundle of nerves- once Peter arrived though with his friendly and easy going manner- all the stress of the day melted away! It was such a wonderful experience and I’m so grateful to Peter and his beautiful cab. Highly recommend!!

  • Hiring FilmCars for our wedding ride was one of the best decisions ever! It was pretty last minute for us, but Peter was SO accommodating--incredibly responsive, so reasonable and highly detail-oriented. Getting a vintage yellow cab to take us to our venue and for our grand wedding exit was probably one of the biggest highlights of our day, and we are so glad we did it! Thank you to FilmCars and especially to Peter for making our day so special!

  • We rented a vintage Checker Cab for our wedding Memorial Day weekend, and the car was gorgeous - everyone loved it! Peter is just the sweetest, most caring vendor to work with, and was flexible, generous, and really we could not recommend this service and car rental more. Our driver was a delight, knew a lot about the car, and was a great prompter to our guests to sign our car with their well wishes!

  • We hired Peter and his checker cab for 2 hours on our wedding day and could NOT have been happier with both the service and the photos!! The car adds so much character and charm to an NYC wedding and Peter is a delight to ride with. Peter went out of his way to accommodate us and made us feel very special on the day. He is very responsive via email and extremely reliable. He made sure every detail was perfect and we had such a great experience with him and the car! Highly recommend!!

  • Peter was our driver for our wedding day and he made us feel extra special. He has the best customer service and will exceed all of your needs. He is a one of a kind gem, someone you will never forget. I highly recommend hiring him and the checker cab! (Photographer: Sascha Reinking)

  • From the very first time we made contact with Peter we were impressed. His warm, friendly and enthusiastic emails helped put us at ease immediately. We are from England and it's very difficult to know that you're booking the right people from so far away. Peter came highly recommended by our wedding photographer Sascha Reinking and he did not disappoint, in fact he was a real pleasure to have on our wedding day and the service he provided was truly amazing. Peter responded to our emails extremely promptly and did everything he promised and more! The car, a 1960's checker cab was the most perfect addition to our wedding day. It made for convenient travel around the city, made us feel extremely privileged with all passers by wanting to take photos and the enthusiasm Peter had telling us stories about the car kept the conversation on the travels engaging and interesting. Peter had a great relationship with our photographer which really helped with organisation, on our wedding day they co... Read more

  • Out of all of our wedding vendors, working with Peter was by far the best experience we had - he was extremely responsive and warm, making our big day feel like the most important in his calendar. He was very flexible about the timing and plan, and such a pleasure on the day of. The cab became such an iconic prop in our photographs. Would highly recommend!!!

  • I have nothing but good things to say about Peter, and his car. Peter himself is honestly such a pleasure to deal with. He is so warm and friendly, he has so many wonderful stories that he tell as he drives you around, and he's very knowledgeable about the city. The day after the wedding he sent us the most thoughtful email, which was a pleasure to read, not many people would think to do that! The car is stunning. It's in beautiful condition, you would never believe it's as old as it is, and is so comfortable and spacious inside -great when trying to fit a wedding dress in! I really do wish we could have had it for our whole trip, it was such an amazing experience and we could not recommend Peter enough! From my first email to him, he was quick to respond, and offered all the information we could need. Everything about the experience was perfect, even down to the details he wrote on the window. Oh, and our family loved the chance to get a few pictures in the car too!

  • Peter is INCREDIBLE! My husband and I enlisted his help to use a 1968 checker cab as our getaway car after our ceremony in Manhattan. Everything about the rental was perfect. The car is in immaculate/pristine condition and has been well maintained. The driver/owner, Peter, is the sweetest, most genuine person I encountered during our wedding planning process. He is also very knowledgeable about his vehicles and shared fun facts about the taxi during our short drive from the church to Central Park. Peter remained in constant communication with from us from the time we booked the car (July 2017) through our wedding day (July 2018). He contacted us a few days after the wedding wishing us the best and brightest future (something that other vendors would never do!). He also saved the cork from the champagne we drank as we drove off from the church in case we wanted to save it as a memento! The cab added the perfect NYC feel to our day and was quite the head turner! Our photos with the car a... Read more

  • Peter and his vintage NYC Checkered Cab were the absolute perfect beginning and end to our wedding. The vehicle itself was immaculate and has been restored to its true beauty, including its original meter. On our day, it was very warm, and the air conditioning was fantastic! The beautiful classic car aside though, we (my wife and I) must note how wonderful Peter Yannello (Owner and Driver) is. Peter, you are an absolute delight! And truely helped us enjoy our magical day! Peter really thinks of everything, and worked so well with our photographers. The pictures are incredible. So if you are reading this review, you may be considering hiring Peter and/or his company This is an easy decision. Do it! No better way to make an entrance and end the evening.

  • If you are looking for unique transportation for your wedding, look no further than Peter at Film Cars! Working with him for our NYC wedding was an absolute pleasure. Not only was he professional and courteous, he goes the extra mile to make you feel like a star. His Checker Cab was the perfect addition to our wedding. He was patient and drove many members of our wedding party from the hotel to the venue outside of Union Square and allowed us to take amazing pictures. It was worth every penny to have Peter and his Checker Cab be a part of our day and I recommend it to anyone having a classic New York wedding.

  • One of the best decisions we made for our wedding day was having Peter and Film Cars there for our transportation. Peter was so friendly and enjoyable to spend time with while we drove around taking our wedding portraits. Having the classic NYC taxi cab in our wedding pictures added such a unique touch!

  • We can't say enough about Peter and our wonderful experience with Film Cars. Not only did his gorgeous Checker Cab complete our vision for our wedding photos and elevate our day, but spending time with Peter was fantastic. He went above and beyond to make our big day perfect, he allowed us to rock out and blast the Jersey Boys soundtrack when we needed a minute to decompress between photo stops, and when our schedule went awry and we went longer than expected, he was completely flexible in helping us to complete our wedding photos. Hiring Film Cars was a fantastic decision on our part, and whenever we see Peter's car in our neighborhood, we look at that cab with the most fond memories. Thank you again Peter for playing such an integral role in our big day!

  • We couldn't have asked for a better way to get to our wedding venue than with Peter and his immaculate yellow cab. Peter stayed in contact from the moment we found him right up until a phone call and email the day before our wedding. He was beyond accommodating as we arranged our wedding on a fairly short timeline. He even re-arranged his schedule so he could fit us in for our Friday wedding. His cab was absolutely gorgeous, and even matched my wife's shoes and flowers. He even put a Canadian flag on the dash! All of our guests loved chatting with him and taking pictures with the cab before we headed out. Once we arrived at our location, Peter was, again, ready, helping the photographer to set up shots and cut down on the glare as the sun came out upon our arrival. If you want to add some authenticity to your New York wedding, or you just want to add a piece to your wedding that will cause everyone - EVERYONE - to stop and stare, you've got to hire Peter.
