Selecting a limousine service company to work with can take some time out of your schedule, but this can be a beneficial exercise if you choose a great company to service your needs. There are a number of limo companies available to most areas and just opening the phone book or looking online and choosing the first name that you see may not be the best option.
So below we will examine some keys to choosing a great limousine service company in your area. Though every area is not the same, the keys and tips discussed below should apply broadly. Limo companies come in different shapes and sizes but the way you choose the best one for your event can be done strategically by following the tips below.
Most limousine companies operate around the clock and you want to make sure that even after normal business hours that you will be able to contact the owner or driver if there is a problem. Depending on when your event happens you may need to have questions answers or something done after the normal 9 to 5 and if the company you are planning to use does not offer service after these hours then you might want to look elsewhere.
Take a look at the size of their fleet to see if they have the vehicles you want to rent. Even though a limousine company may say they have a large fleet that could mean they have ten limousines of the same make and model. If you are looking for a classic car there is no guarantee that limousine company has what you are looking, and dont believe them just because they say they have what you want. Make sure to get pictures and visit the company to ensure you are getting the limo you want. Once you have seen what you want make sure the make and model is written in your contract so a bait and switch doesnt happen on the day of the event.
The majority of limousine companies include gratuity for the drivers, so if when you get the contract from the company you plan to go with make sure this is a line item in your charges. You do not want to have to pay the limo driver on the day of the event if they do not do a good job for you. Also you may not have cash on hand depending on the event you are being transported to. So make sure gratuity is covered and if the driver went above and beyond feel free to tip them.
The keys discussed above should help in your selection of a limousine company that is up to your liking. When used properly you should not have a problem choosing the right company for your next big event.
