How to find the best limousine service

When the time comes for a big event, there are a million details that need to be arranged; each with their own specific areas of concern. When you’re planning for a large event such as a wedding, bachelor party, corporate event or even a major sporting event, it’s important to do your homework when selecting a local limousine service. In fact, even if you’re just arranging a limo service for a night out on the town, the task can be daunting if you don’t know what questions to ask and how to negotiate the best price.

In many instances, and especially if you are in a smaller area, your choices can be limited but when you’re in a large city like New York, or in a tourist destination like West Palm Beach, Florida, the choices are abundant. This can cause a lot of confusion and anxiety for the person planning the event.

Here are some basic tips to help alleviate the stressful nature of the job and get you started toward finding a good fit. Below are some suggestions for finding a limo service that suits your needs:

  1. Ask friends and family for a recommendation on a service they have used
  2. Put a post on Facebook asking locals for a recommendation
  3. Go to Yelp and search for companies in your city with good reviews
  4. Use Google to find local companies with good reviews
  5. As co-workers at your place of employment
  6. Look to your local Better Business Bureau
  7. Search Facebook for companies that look reputable

Finally, one of the most logical ways to find a great company is to get on the phone and talk to 5-6 different local limousine services. This is the best way to gauge how they treat their customers and what kind of service you can expect.

When calling a service, you want to ask:

  1. What is their minimum service period. Most have a 4-5 hour minimum
  2. How old their are their vehicles
  3. If their drivers are knowledgeable on the local roadways
  4. If you can come by to see the exact vehicle you want and insure that is the vehicle you will get on the day of your event
  5. If they provide basic refreshment and what you can bring
  6. For an all inclusive price and what the standard tip is (usually 20%)
  7. To be on time

Solid limousine service providers won’t mind you asking numerous questions and will be glad to answer. Be weary of a company that has no patience for your inquiries as they will be the ones to show up late or not at all. Reputable companies that have high regard for their customers like one our favorites, limo service West Palm Beach will be professional and understand the important of your special event.

There are some amazing limo companies out there and some really poor ones too. Look for friendly companies that are receptive to your calls and inquiries and want your business. The best companies understand that once they’ve earned your business, you will be a customer for life and it is in their best interest to make sure you are happy not only with their office staff, but by your limousine driver as well.

Good luck!

Post Script: Since we posted this, we realized we had not provided any additional information on one of our favorite service for limousine rental that we referenced above so we though we would add their website which you can find below. We are frequent travelers to South Florida and specifically West Palm Beach where we vacation in the winter. We highly recommend their services and when you call ask for Don. They will take great care of you and mention their website when you call:


Limousine Services

Most occasions for going out are pretty mundane — going out for dinner, grocery shopping, going to see a movie, visiting a friend, etc. Nothing too showy or extravagant, right? But there will come a time when you want to make an entrance: high school proms, weddings, birthdays — any day that you want to make your day. You cannot show up in just any old car, can you? For an event like one of these, you should arrive with style and class in a limousine.

A common misconception about limousines is that they are always sleek, long, black cars, as that is the only type of vehicle of the sort that we see in the movies. You should know that are many types and variations of limousines — you have probably seen them out and about!

Different types of limousines:

  • Executive SUV Limo — Popular for their luxuriousness, these spacious limos can seat up to seven passengers. This kind of limousine is used mostly to get people to and from airports.
  • Luxury Passenger Van — A luxury passenger van is much like an executive SUV limo, except it is considerably larger. Travel in style with wood flooring, elegant leather seats, and even a table. This vehicle can carry fourteen people.
  • Stretch Limo — A stretch limo is probably what comes to mind when one thinks of limousines. It is a classic choice for transport to and from school proms, weddings, birthday parties, and bachelor or bachelorette parties. Some of its most notable features include surround sound, a bar, LCD screens, and even more. Bring eight of your friends to ride with you in a stretch limo for a night you will never forget!
  • Stretch SUV — Think of a stretch limo, but even bigger with even more benefits. A stretch SUV can seat up to fourteen people. Stretch SUVs are equipped with the same amenities as a stretch limo, as well as a strobe light, laser lights, three LCD screens, champagne (not to mention an even bigger bar!), and more.
  • Limo Bus — And, last, but certainly not least, the limo bus. If you’re planning a huge get-together, there’s no need to panic. A limo bus can usually carry up to thirty passengers. Limo buses feature beyond comfortable leather seating, privacy partitions, flat screen televisions, DVD and CD players, a full bar, and even more still. You could just have the party in the bus if you really wanted to!

How much does renting a limo cost? It all depends on the kind you select:

  • Executive SUVs — Expect starting rates of $75 and an hourly rate of $90.
  • Luxury Passenger Vans — Rates are around $132 per hour.
  • Stretch Limos — Hourly rates range from $120 to $150.
  • Stretch SUVs — Hourly rates range from $150 to $180.
  • Limo Buses — Because they’re the biggest limos available, their rates are a bit higher. Hourly service is about $240.

Renting and riding in a limousine seems quite cliché, but with all the extra space, luxurious leather seating, amenities, qualified chauffeurs, security, and just the very experience itself, it is more than worth it.…


How To Get The Best Limo

So you ask; “how do I get the best limousine out there?”

The answer is simple; go directly to the limousine service you are working with and ask to see the exact limousine they will be providing for the quoted price.

Many limousine companies buy new and updated limos on a yearly basis, but many others let their inventory grow old.

You want the limo service with the newest, coolest and most pristine luxury vehicles you can get. After all, they are charging you top dollar for a few hours in their car.

So, as folks who spend our lives in and around the limousine industry, as mentioned before, the best way to know what you’re getting, is to go directly to the limo service and ask to see the car, bus, stretch limo, etc. that you’ll be renting.

Also, just to sweeten the deal, ask them what complimentary services they provide as part of your rental and if they will throw in a free hour or two if you “sign” with them.

The limo industry is very competitive and many people shop around. Tell the service that you will provide your credit card right there on the spot if they confirm the vehicle, pricing, extra hours, etc. to you.

Tell them if they provide great service that you will be a repeat customers and refer your friends to them too.

Renting a limo is a negotiation between two parties so don’t be afraid to ask for anything that comes to mind to make it happen and to get the newest and best vehicle with a few add-ons all at a great price.

You’ll be glad you did.
