It upsets me to see that certain people, who have heavy fingers, like to whine too much, especially when they aren't being pampered the way their parents have all their life. Get a life! I believe you get your money's worth when you use Eastern, I know I have. I like using Carmel once in a while, but overall Eastern has been just fine. Btw, if you get upset over not getting a vehicle within 5 minutes during rush hour I have news for you, you aren't going to get a car from any of the other car services around either. Thats why it's called rush hour.
We recently used Eastern twice in a very short period of time and found them to be fairly reliable. The reason we used Eastern was because we were traveling and needed a car service with a child seat.
My wife called Eastern prior to our arrival and they immediately sent a text confirmation and continued to send update text messages when we arrived regarding which car will be picking us up. The driver was exactly where they said he would be located. The car was clean and the driver was friendly.
On our departure, we called about 36 hours prior to leaving and asked for the same service. Oddly though, we never got a text message so we called 3 times to confirm and we got a verbal confirmation each time. However, when our pickup was scheduled, we got a car at our hotel, but it didn't come with a carseat. The driver called dispatch and asked for another car with a carseat. With some mixup on addresses, our taxi arrived 30 minutes after our scheduled pickup.
Our flat rate fare from LGA to Brooklyn ran about $40 including car seat and gratuity. I would highly recommend them.
I used Eastern this weekend to take my sis, who was in town for the weekend, over to catch a show in the city. We were running late so i called them that i needed to get there as soon as possible before the doors were closed. Their driver got there within minutes and we were on the road getting to the place on time. I just wanted to share that eastern has always offered great service and I wouldn't consider using anyone else in park slope.
Eastern treats us well. Nice cars and drivers, use them To exit Park Slope (pick ups in other neighborhoods will take longer/ cost more)
Very professional and allowed us to be on time for our reservations. Driver knew ahead of time exactly were our location was with a simple "no problem". I will recommend Eastern Car Service to family, co workers and to anyone I know that will be traveling to Brooklyn.
Eastern Car Service is to me the best in Brooklyn. The dispatchers are great and never come out nasty when I call them. They always have a car ready to send out to me, not like many car services in Brooklyn that never have enough cars and when you call they leave you on hold forever. Which I hate. I don't call any other car service since the first time i called Eastern. The drivers are all nice and always have the car smelling good. Which to me is very important when in a cab. I recommend everyone to use Eastern services just because still till this day I have not had a bad experience with them. They are the best.
I have used these guys probably 20 times all around NYC and they've never failed me. They're always on time, frequently early, always polite, clean, super-cool.
Here's why I always go to them over any other company, though, if all other things were equal: the laziness technology factor. Being able to request a car online, both in advance and ASAP? Hell yeah. Getting a text message or email when my car arrives? mmhmm. I only wish they had a mobile site and/or a way to request via text message, simply because I've seen that in other cities and that would be SWEET.
One of the drivers offered me a tip - do not call the dispatch line. Just use the website, go to it on your phone or something. He said when you put in a request via the website, it's sent out to all the drivers at once, and they can snag it instantly if they're nearby. It's a LOT faster than calling dispatch. And he's right - every time I've done it, I've gotten a call from a nearby driver in less than 5 minutes, often more like 1-2 minutes.
Also, requesting online doesn't get you a price, but they have a pretty full list of rates on their website as well.
I have taken eastern car for a while now as well as their other competitors in the area, but eastern seems to be the only one of the bunch to be making new progress. I even registered an account in their website and have been requesting my cars that way now. Way to go guys! Oh, and by the way, the trip was pleasant and in a nice car...but the traffic sucked.
Eastern is reliable, reasonably priced, and timely. They never keep you waiting. They call or text when they arrive (typically 10 minutes before scheduled). You can reserve cars online or over the phone. You won't get a Mercedes, but you will get a clean and safe car driven by a professional.
Eastern Car Service has proven to me and my friends to be the best in Brooklyn. I have nothing bad to say about their services. The drivers are really nice and never come out stupid with me and they never over charge. Not like many other car services in Brooklyn. I always call Eastern whenever I need a cab. I always feel comfortable when I get into one of Eastern Cars. They are great and friendly.
