There are many important factors to consider when choosing a limo for your next outing. Getting the right limo or party bus often depends on the type of occasion, number of people, number of hours you’ll need, and how far you’re going. Typically, limousine companies charge based on the type of event and most charge by the hour, so it’s important to know how long you’ll need service. The more details you can provide; the better value and service you’ll receive.
Always make sure you check prices between limousine services. Each company will generally have their own unique pricing policies. Some may offer flat rates or all-inclusive packages, but be aware of any additional fees or surcharges. Also, inquiry about overage and cancellation fees. Be sure you get the full price up front and in writing before making a purchase.
There are many vehicle options available. Ensure the vehicle you’re getting has the space, features and look you desire. Try to book a vehicle that has room for at least one to two more people than are in your party. Typically, limousines comfortably seat two people less than the advertised seating capacity.
The most important thing to consider when booking a limo is safety. Legitimate limousine companies need to be registered with their state, have the proper insurance, and be properly licensed. Never book a limo with a company that can’t promptly show you their licensing and insurance credentials. Do your research online and through word of mouth to find out more about the companies you’re considering.
It’s a good idea to see the vehicle in person prior to booking. This gives you a chance to check out the company and vehicle to see if it they meet your standards. Book your vehicle plenty of time in advance. Like most other services, limousine companies have their busy seasons. Lastly, call ahead prior to your event to confirm the reservation. It may seem unnecessary, but being proactive may help you avoid any last minutes surprises.
