Limousine Rental Tips

When looking for the right limousine to rent, there are some key factors to consider; such as, type of ocassion, size of your group, number of hours you'll need the limo, the time of day or evening you need to be picked up, and how far you plan on riding. These are just a few examples of things you will want to figure out before asking for quotes and pricing because most limo companies will ask for this information before providing you with estimated costs for services.
As a trusted local limousine company, we would like to help you with some tips on renting your next limo or luxury specialty vehicle. By following this brief outline, you will have some good informaton to get started on your search for the limo that is right for you and your needs.
  • Make sure that you know the location of the limo company. Some might charge drive time if they are more than 30 minutes away.
  • Let the limo service company know if you have a preferred route, and if there will be stops along the way.
  • If someone in your party has special needs and requires a car seat or handicap access, make sure to arrange for these details ahead of time
  • Find out if anyone in your party plans to bring a dog. If so, you’ll need to find out the limo service’s policy on pets.
  • Reserve the limousine early, especially for big events. For wedding limousines it is advisable to book twelve to eighteen months in advance. For other events like proms it is best to book a limousine a few months in advance.
  • Some companies provide music (radio or satellite radio), so ask in advance. Also find out if there is a bluetooth stereo or a stereo that you can connect an auxilary cable to with your mobile device.
  • Be sure to inquire about limitations regarding food, drink, or smoking.
  • It's generally a good idea to contact your limousine service provider two to four weeks before the event to ensure your booking is confirmed, including the routing and the name and cell number of the chauffeur.
  • Get confirmation of your booking in writing including their written policy on cancellation and written confirmation that the limousine company will not subcontract or "farm out" your booking.
  • Find out if the limo company has the required comercial insurance, licenses and permits. You will definitely want to ask
  • Never book a limousine with a company that can't promptly show you their licensing and insurance credentials.
  • Never rent a limo from a company that does not have any online reviews or one that has not had any recent reviews on the internet or social media sites. Look for these on sites like Facebook Reviews | Google Reviews | WeddingWire Reviews
  • Never reserve a limo from a limousine company that is using limos older than 3-5 years. If the limo company you are talking to has a fleet of 10-15 year old vehicles, you should stay away from making a reservation with that limo company.
