BurlapnLace:  Maybe think about handing over your problem children to your Fiance. Sometimes mine just handles things a bit differently and it works out better. Not always but sometimes.

Contractually speaking, I can’t offer an opinion because I cannot see the image in question. An image should suffice however.

Yes, that would concern me. Id want a legible copy!

I will say though that no I havent really had any issues. I think sometimes if youre dealing with mom & pop type businesses (which it sounds like if you met/have been dealing with the owner) then their productivity/turn around time is just not going to be able to compete due to lack administrative support.

BurlapnLace: this magical land of San Francisco, LA, New York, Philly, DC, Boston. Not a northeast thing as uber, e-signature and e-payments originated from the West Coast. 

So anywhere with smartphones and data. I’m surprised you haven’t heard of this technology As it’s been on the Today Show and regular news. 

Demanding people use fax is pretty rude in my book, especially when they don’t have acess to a fax. It’s akin to telling them how to do their jobs.

BurlapnLace:  only thing I would do with this guy is to call 2 weeks, then the day before the wedding to confirm the timetable.

BurlapnLace:  Personally, I wouldnt bother with the follow-up. A signature doesnt have to be a legible, it could be any kind of marking. The fact that he sent something (albeit illegible) from his phone number is proof enough of a signature if you want it for legal purposes. Save yourself the headache. persistent follow-up will likely create an issue that isnt there.

Mrs_Amanda:  Yeah, I agree with you on that one. Its always the people who have the most problems with others who never stop and reflect on their own behavior.

BurlapnLace:  Right, then yes.. There are no reliable vendors anywhere near where you reside. You are correct. You poor thing, this must be so stressful for you.

BurlapnLace: so then you weren’t rude. Not sure why you’re being so sensitive and defensive. Of course there’s room for misunderstanding when communicating. 

My signature is illegible when I wet sign. Does that mean that my signature is invalid? The point of it all is to show agreement, which the photo does. 

Anyhow sorry you’re having a tough time with a vendor especially since you say that you’ve done events before. 

I’ve just always been able to get a car within 5 min to 24 hrs of scheduling and no contract necessary so I just find the whole thing odd. (shrug)

Tell him you’d like a paper copy for your records via email or fax. It’s surprising he didn’t give you a copy of the contract when you sat down with him.

BurlapnLace:  Just wanted to pop in and say that I have also had problems with unresponsive vendors, and I totally understand your frustration! I still have a while before my wedding so it hasn’t bothered me too much, but it’s still annoying and a little worrisome, especially when I’m trying to schedule something with them. If your last e-mail doesn’t get a response, maybe try calling him? That way you get real-time responses (that is, if he answers the phone, haha).

Nevermind, I re-read your post and see that you did try calling him previously and it didn’t really help!

So, if he fails to have the right water bottles in the limo, do you envision suing him? Otherwise, I’m not sure what you expect to get out of a contract. I hire limos a lot, and I’ve never had a contract. At most, email confirmation and then I call to confirm an hour before just in case.

What is it that you need this signature for? If You plan on suing over some failure of his, then you already have the contract and you have his response to your request for his signature. I’m not a lawyer, but seems like you can establish that he agreed to this contract. Is it his contract or did you write it up?

If you’re this nervous, call another service and book them instead or get a back up plan. 

if his limo business was a big corporation, it would cost more. And he’d have a fax machine.
