We present the results of a long-term search (25 yrs) for radial velocity variability in a sample of seven bright proto-planetary nebulae showing axial symmetry. They all vary in velocity due to periodic pulsations. However, only marginal evidence is found for multi-year variations that might be due to a binary companion.
