4- No chores on a trip – Enjoy the comfort and convenience of not having to lift a single finger during your whole road trip, the hired Ugandan driver will take care of everything including replacing a flat tire, fixing a battery or engine issue, washing the car and of course doing all the driving to give you space and time to do other things like chat with family and friends or finish-up that business proposal on the way to the business meeting.

Special events like weddings call for first-class services and that’s why most people always want to add that extra spice by hiring the best wedding cars in Uganda. Everyone wants that stylish luxury car that will speak volumes of their wealth and class. But there are some simple mistakes they tend to make which can lead to an increase in expenditure and last-minute inconveniences. Below are some mistakes to avoid to make your day a success.

Late Booking

Endeavor to reserve your preferred car(s) at least a month before the wedding day. Most people think that waiting it out until the last few days to the day will help them get the best deal, but that’s very risky as you might miss out on your favorite car and end up settling for the one you didn’t want ruining your special day just because of a mistake you could have easily avoided.

Not comparing companies & rates

The other common mistake made is not looking around for more options but just going with the first company you find. There are plenty of companies operating in Kampala offering a wide range of wedding cars for hire in Uganda at affordable rates and can be easily found online with a few clicks. So pull out your phone or visit an Internet café and visit  and type in what bridal car or service you would love in the search box. You find the best companies listed on the first page , compare their rates and also their reputation as a service provider to get the best deal.

Not Inspecting the cars

Don’t make any payment until you have seen the car in person, fully inspected it and confirmed it fits what you requested for. Don’t get illusions that the pictures you see on the website are the real representative of what to expect as you will be surprised by your findings on a real day…it may want you want but if it’s not , then you’re in for another hassle.

If you are planning to hire a wedding car in Uganda, try to avoid making these three mistakes as it could cost you highly and also ruin your special day.
