How to Choose the Best Limo Company for your event.

There is no better way to travel or cruise in style than riding in a beautiful limo. It is the perfect choice for creating lasting memories from special events and occasions. Whether it’s a wedding trip, royal bachelorette party, birthday celebration, special date with your partner or even corporate trips like picking up an important business guest, there is nothing more befitting than having a limo at your disposal. Nothing beats the luxury; nothing beats the class; nothing beats the sight. But you know what? Hiring a limousine that is in a bad shape or using a company service that sucks could turn out to be your worst nightmare.

Considering the enormous number of limousine companies on parade, it becomes imperative to do some research and perusing before hiring. This will ensure you choose a company that will offer the best value for your money and not bring a bad mood to the event. So, here are certain things you must look into in order to choose a limo service that will suit your needs:

References

Make sure the company choose has a lot of good references. They should have a good track record of customer satisfaction.

Pricing

You should only settle for a limo service that is within your budget. You don’t want to enjoy some few minutes of a fun ride only to pay some debts later. Choose a limo service that offers quality service and is affordable.  If the company requests for a down payment make sure it doesn’t exceed 25 percent.

Occasion

Before hiring a limo, you must first have a clear understanding of what you need it for. This is because they are different types of limo for different occasions, so you will need to choose one that is right for your event. For instance, a stretch hummer wouldn’t make a good pick for a wedding event because of its capacity. Make sure the limo rental is aware of the kind of event you are using the limo for so that they will know what options to offer you.

Safety

Although you want a fleet that will stun the crowd, it will also help to ensure that the limo is safe to ride. Safety should always come first. The interior of the limo should be neat and well organized-shiny carpet; clean bar with sparkling champagne glasses.

Insurance

Make sure the insurance of the limo service covers the fleet, the passengers, as well as the chauffeurs. Also ensure the chauffeur is well qualified to drive you.

Agreement

Everything you do with a limo service should always be put in paper. The contract should include the agreed price, the time you will be using the vehicle, as well the venue of the occasion. Enquire about the company’s policy as well as the guarantee they offer. All these should also be included in the agreement.

What happens when your Limo breaks down?

This is a great question to ask a Limo Company when your deciding who to hire them. Okay so we all plan on a night with no problems and everything goes as planned. Well what happens when your chariot or Limo breaks down or gets a flat tire? Trust me it happens and when it does everyone in the limo is bummed. So before you decide which limo company to hire you need to ask their policy and contingency plan n the event of a breakdown.

A quality company will keep their vehicles in tip top shape and have very few incidents.  Although a tire can blow for various reasons some of which are uncontrollable. As we all know our personal vehicles can breakdown even if we keep them regularly maintained. Even with the proper maintenance vehicles have so many parts it is almost inevitable they will break.

So before you hire a limo company ask what they do in the event of a breakdown. Will they send another limo to finish the job? Will they refund the cost of the night, for the inconvenience? Do they have a quality towing company they can call?

These answers should all be yes! If not I would continue your search and find a quality company who knows things happen and when they do they take care of the customer and the situation asap.

A personal story of mine lends to proof that this is all so important.

I was on a bachelor party and we rented a sweet stretched escalade to drive us from Boise Idaho to Jackpot Nevada, a couple hour drive through the dessert. We had a blast on the ride there and enjoyed our time at the casino’s in Jackpot. We were on our way back to Boise when halfway home our Limo blew two tires and we were stuck on the side of the road 🙁

Thankfully our limo driver had a great relationship with a towing company out of Boise, Tow Boise . It was a bit of a drive for them but they arrived before we knew it and helped fix our limo. We were off and back to town before the Sun woke up.

All in all it just made our adventure a bit more interesting. The moral of the story is to make sure you ask questions before you hire a limo company.

Technology

Technology…they gotta have it!

Let’s face it there’s nothing more annoying than trying to book out a limo for that special occasion and not being able to find the perfect Limo for your special night out.

Here’s a tip from a colleague in California who swears by the limo company he uses and the technology they employ. He describes the experience as seamless and hassle free. Also a lot cheaper than traditional limo rentals.

Through an integrated scheduling and mobile app platform the local limo company has been able to create a mini Uber or rideshare platform, while maintaining control over drivers and inventory.

As he explained it further it was a fantastic setup that allowed clients and drivers more flexibility. It did this through a micro schedule where you could book that sick Hummer to take you out for a couple hours and drop you off for dinner or dancing. Once you’re ready to be picked up you simply opened the mobile app and informed the driver to show up in 15 minutes. If you want the Hummer you select that in the app or you can choose from any of the available inventory.

There was a number of options he described within the scheduling component allowing you to book out a full night or like above partial nights. Saving you money and allowing the limo company to keep their vehicles on the road, making money.

This is a win-win and I assume is in a city near you. The next time you book out a limo ask if they have a similar platform. I found a limo company here locally with similar technology and can’t wait for our trip next week. Expect a quick follow up as I test their platform.
