Whether you need to transport your family to the airport, are booking a limo for your wedding, or just want to enjoy a special night out on the town, hiring a good limousine service can really make a huge difference in how your special event unfolds. It is very important to have reliable and professional service any time you invest your hard-earned money into luxury transportation. Here are some tips on how to find a good limousine service.
The main thing you want to do is research several different limousine companies so that you can compare them in terms of services offered, rates, experience level and other important criteria. You can find limousine companies in your area by getting recommendations from people you know, consulting your phone book or doing Internet searches online. For example, CarrollTransportationInc.com is a website for a quality limousine service based in the New York City area. These are the kinds of websites you can review for relevant information.
One important criterion is the company’s level of experience. Limousine companies that have been in business for many years will most likely be able to provide you with a good experience and deliver high quality service to you.
Also, be sure that the limo service holds all the required licenses and insurance as required by state and local laws. For insurance, ask to see the company’s certificate of coverage.
Ask for references from past customers. A quality limousine service should be able to provide you with references that you can follow up on.
Find out as much as possible about the features and details of the limousine. Ask about the limousine’s size as well as the number of passengers it seats. Ask the company what type of fleet vehicles they have. Limousine companies usually always carry both standard and super stretch limos, and many companies have other types of vehicles as well such as party buses and shuttle vans. Choose the appropriate vehicles based on your event and the number of people that you need to transport. Your limousine company will be able to advise you on the best vehicles for your specific purpose.
Ask the company what screening processes are used for hiring drivers and what training they undergo. Having good, reliable chauffeurs is essential to any positive limousine rental experience.
Ask about pricing and discounts. Make sure you are clear on total price and how the rate will be determined. Some companies price by the event and some by the hour. Also, find out if the gratuity for the drivers is included in the price, or if you will paying those to the drivers directly. Some companies do offer a discount if you rent more than two vehicles. Some services also offer wedding limousine service discounts.
Before signing any contract to hire a limousine service, make sure you are very clear on the pricing as well as all the terms and conditions.
