Things You Need To Know BEFORE Booking Road Travel
Ask to See The Company's Limos.
- Check out the vehicle you plan on renting. Some companies utilize older limo fleets. You don't want to be surprised on your wedding day when a 1988 limousine shows up at the church when you were expecting a year 2006 model!
Get A Signed Contract for Important Events
- Reliable and professional service will be more than happy to provide you with a signed-contract for service. Companies who can't supply a contract may not be confident in their ability to fulfill.
- Ask About Limo Insurance & Permits
- All limousines are required to carry commercial livery insurance and proper permits. Unfortunately, the Yellow Pages and advertising services do not require the same in order to advertise. To protect yourself from "gypsy companies", ask for proof of these with your signed contract.
- Ask About Limo Industry Associations
"The Limo Got Into An Accident"
- Don't be the bride who gets the "The Limo Got Into An Accident" or "We don't have your reservation" excuse. Cover yourself by getting a signed contract and by shopping smart. Shopping on price alone is risky. Some unethical operators do not hesitate to drop a reservation to pickup a better paying fare.
Risks to consider When Shopping for the 'Best Limo Price'
- Your limousine service gets into an accident and does not have proper insurance to cover the damages involved in your injuries.
- Your limousine does not show up. You miss your concert.
- Your limousine is late. You miss your flight.
- A 1995 Lincoln limousine rusting at the seams arrives at your door when you were expecting at a 2006 model. Instead of being lavished in luxury, you are embarrassed.
- Your limousine chauffeur exercises poor customer service with your company's most influential client. You loose the account. Your limousine breaks down on the freeway during transport to the Super Bowl. You and 7 of your friends missed the big game-- but, you saved $35.00.
- Your limousine shows up late for your wedding. An hour later the groom doesn't gets to the church. Guests are bewildered but, you saved $50.
