10 Questions with Phil and Dorothee Auldridge

1. Introduction: What's your story?

Over 10 years ago Phil and Dorothee Auldridge combined their love of classic vehicles with their desire to create a business with extraordinary customer service.

Our Yelp, Google, Facebook, and The Knot ratings tell it all, with each platform garnering nothing but 5 star reviews from our satisfied customers.

We cater to weddings, quinceaneras, anniversaries, and other special occasions. We understand just how important such celebrations can be, and therefore one of us personally is the driving to insure perfect from start to finish.

2. What type of vehicles do you offer? (Describe the types, sizes, capacity and colors)

We offer classic vehicles with passenger capacity rangin from 4 to 7. All our vehicles are combinations of greys, silver, and black.

3. What amenities do your vehicles have (TV, bar, sunroof)? Will beverages/food be provided?

Due to the delicate nature of our 60 to 80 year old vehicles, we must prohibit food or beverage in the vehicle. We do always bring our own professional camera equipment along to get stunning shots of the passengers with the car.

We always have engagements on the books as far as a year in advance. Generally our calendar is pretty filled 2 months prior to an engagement date, depending on the season.

Pricing is quoted on a per trip basis, and varies depending on pickup and destination locations.

Most of our engagements are priced on a per trip basis. We always like to arrive 30 minutes prior to scheduled departure to allow for photos and loading of personal effects.

All chauffeurs are owners with years of accident free driving history, and fully certified by the Austin Ground Transportation Department.
