There are many occasions and events that call for hiring a limo service.
From proms to weddings or a night on the town, riding in a limo is a great way to travel in style.
In fact, today limo companies offer a variety of vehicles depending on your needs, from the stretch limo for more “formal” occasions and business travel, to SUVs, vans and other vehicles perfect for a group of people who want to ride together in comfort.
Regardless of your specific requirements for getting a limo, here are some tips to consider.
Tips for hiring the best limousine service
So how can you figure out which company is the right one to hire?
Here are a few suggestions (in no particular order):
- don’t settle for the cheapest company
- ask how many cars in their fleet and drivers on hand
- how long have they been in business?
- are their drivers professionally trained?
- do they offer round the clock service?
No doubt you’ve heard the expression “you get what you pay for.”
Well, it’s true.
If one company is markedly lower than the others, there has to be a reason. Maybe they don’t have professional drivers, or perhaps they don’t carry all the right licenses and insurance for carrying passengers commercially.
Whatever the reason, avoid the lowest bid.
Ask how many cars and vans they have in their fleet. After all, if you’re dealing with a “man in a van” type of company (i.e. a single operator) how do you know that they’ll be able to meet your travel needs when the “big day” (or any day) arrives?
So consider using larger, more established businesses for your limo needs.
Next up, ask how long they’ve been in business.
Sure, it sounds a bit cliché, but established companies that have been around a long time know what they are doing. After all, you don’t stay open for many years through up and down economies without good reason.
You should also ask for their operator’s licenses.
Only professional limo companies with trained drivers should be considered. Period. Remember the part about avoiding the lowest bid. Well, companies offering you a “crazy discount” are cutting corners somewhere. And typically it means operating without the proper licenses. So it makes sense to ask about their licenses and insurance.
After all, if you hire a limo company and something happens (i.e. a traffic accident, etc.) you don’t want to be held responsible or liable for any damages because the limo company was operating without insurance, would you?
So it makes sense to ask.
And a professional company knows that you just might ask, and shouldn’t be offended that you’re covering your bases.
Finally, do they offer round the clock service by phone, online or with an app?
You want to make sure you can reach someone should your plans change before, or even during, your trip. Hey, stuff happens all the time, and when you’re ready to head home (or out) you want to make sure that your ride is waiting for you, rather than you waiting for them.
Just makes sense.
As a final consideration, some limo companies have a membership rewards program.
And though this typically makes sense for a business traveler who needs limo services on a regular basis, if you think you might need limo services in the coming months it may make sense to sign up for one.
Any savings is good… provided you don’t simply hire the cheapest limo company out there.
