Complaint: I contacted the business via email after renting a "party bus" for my 30th birthday. The bus that was provided was not anything like the photos on the website, was in extremely poor repair It was NOT worth the $720 I spent for the rental. The bus had no cup holders, the tint was coming off all of the windows, the seats had tears, the bus overall was extremely dirty. This was supposed to be a nice event for all of my friends to get dressed up and go winetasting however we did not even feel comfortable sitting on the seats because they were so dirty. One of my friends wore white pants and her pants are ruined (the seats left black marks all over her white jeans). I was extremely embarrassed that a bus like this was provided. When I contacted the company, I asked that they respond to my complaint otherwise I would have to contact the BBB. No one ever responded.To resolve this issue I would expect a partial refund or a bus provided for another event for free that matches the photos on the website. It is unacceptable to provide a bus that was in that poor of condition - I would expect the company to make this situation right by me. The driver explained that this company is a broker so they hire buses for rent to provide for parties. This bus should not be rented again unless the price is that of renting a van - this bus looks exactly like a van and not like a nice "party bus" used for events that require a larger size limousine. Please contact me ASAP.
Desired Settlement: Partial refund or replacement. The cost of renting a van would be around $360 so I would request a $360 refund to match the quality of the product I received. The total paid was $720. Otherwise, I would expect a "party bus" that matches the quality in the photos on the website provided for the same length of time on a weekend day to make up for ruining a friends pants and my 30th birthday.
I am writing in response to a complaint from ***** ******.
Better Business Bureau:
Business Response: As I stated in my first response back, the customers pricing is incorrect. I have already sent over the reservation trip sheet which clearly stated that there was a $100 deposit taken on Feb. 1st, and $400 was due at the time of arrival. Originally the bus was booked for $600 instead of $500, but because the group had decreased I worked with ***** so they wouldn't have to cancel and lose their deposit all together. As I state in every phone call taken by prospected customers that tax and any additional fees are included in the rate but the gratuity is not. ***** did ask what the standard gratuity was for drivers and as I say to every customer, that this is a service industry like waiting table or bar tending and 15 to 20 percent is standard but it is always up to the customers discretion. I have never included a gratuity in with a rate in our two and a half years in business so I wouldn't start doing that with this one customer. If the vehicle was not up to the customers standards then this should have been brought to the companies attention at the time the vehicle got to the pick up location. There was never anything relayed by the customer or the driver the day of the service instead only days after was it brought to anyone attention that there was a problem, after the service was rendered. If Mrs. ****** had filled a complaint with accurate information then I would be much more inclined to have given a refund or come up with another solution for her. But because she did not, and stated that she paid more money then she actually did and that certain things were required when they actually weren't I do not feel that a refund is in order nor would I want to provide a complimentary vehicle to a customer who is already upset. I would then be putting my vehicle and driver in jeopardy and I am not willing to do that. At this time I feel that this is my final response to the issue. It is claimed that $720 was given to our company when in reality only $500 was given for a 6 hour temecula wine tour in which the full 6 hours of service was rendered.

Complaint: The bus was an hour late and wasn't the bus they advertised would pick us up. The bus smelled like commit and the radio and lights were broken on top of that the handles on the roof were loose and dangerous to grab. The driver didn't know how to get anywhere we wanted to go to. After our second stop the bus broke down and the driver has us walk 3 blocks to find her, then we were stranded for an hour and a half and didnt make it to our final stop.would not ever use again! Called the owner the next day and he never returned my phone call same as 20 other customers on yelp said.
Desired Settlement: Full refund, they have you pay up front due to bad busses and bad customer service and ownership.
From: ***** ***** <**********************>
We spoke on the phone Sunday 08/26 about the problems you experienced. This was the first I heard of an issue from that evening, so I explained I needed to speak directly with your driver and get back to you with any sort of explanation. I was not able to speak with the driver until Monday night, at which point your complaint had already been submitted to BBB.
Your reservation that evening was from 8:00pm-12:00am, the driver reported to dispatch at 8:25pm that client was picked up. The driver ran into unusual traffic en route to your home and was unsure where on the country club exact pickup was taking place. To compensate for the 25 minutes tardiness, dispatch advised client's reservation be extended to 12:30am.
The bus that arrived was the 25 passenger limo bus sent via pictures to you, it may have just looked different at night time with lights on. I assure you every bus is cleaned inside and out prior to leaving our lot. The stereo and lights on all our buses are fully functioning, however often times groups adjust the audio settings (ie: max the bass output, adjust the balance, etc) on the deck and throws off it's sound. I apologize if it was not satisfactory nonetheless.
When reserving a bus for an hourly reservation, unless the group provides specific destination address/locations in advance, sometimes the driver does need assistance in where you'd like to go. For your reservation, the bus was reserved for 4 hours with a note that your group was going to be bar hopping. We apologize if the driver was not educated on where exactly the venues were your group wanted to visit, our drivers typically have a good understanding of the San Diego area but on occasion need guidance from their group.
The battery on the bus that evening died while parked outside the bar your group was at. The driver could not find parking for your bus inside the venue's parking lot (location was Pacific Beach which is difficult for parking of all kinds) so was waiting at a nearby lot 2 blocks away. This is where the battery died and our mechanic drove out to help jump-start the bus. I assure you no one was being stranded that evening, per our disclaimer on the client reservation sheet, we cannot be held responsible for mechanical/electrical issues. The problem was resolved and dispatch also advised additional time be added to the reservation, which was applied and bus was in use until 1:30am when driver dispatched completion of run.
We apologize if your group's experience was anything less than outstanding, I assure you we take pride in our customer service, which is why we are proud members of the BBB. A full refund unfortunately can not be assessed, as the reservation length was fulfilled, however we would be more than happy to offer 50% off your group's next reservation. Our hope is to prove to you and your guests that your experience that night is not common of our company. Feel free to contact me with any further comments or questions.
