Limousine Tips for your Wedding

Millions of couples are engaged and are seeking the best limousine service for their money. Every customer desires to get the most bang for their buck when hiring a limousine service. Couples should always compare prices in relation to the expected services. Here are the lists of things to focus on when you contract a limousine rental.

Always check for the company’s size, years in business, age of equipment, local licensing, and reputation for reliability. Established limousine companies have experience through trial and error and overtime get better at their trade. It is critical to be certain that the limousine being sought is not old and beat up. Most customers always prefer a late model limousine which is 2-3 years old- Do not be tricked by the ‘too good to be true’ low prices. Some ads claim a $45.00 an hour rental. Always ask the company for a written guarantee and current year model limousine. Check to make sure that the vehicle is licensed by the properly regulating agencies. The limousine must be licensed by the Department of Motor Vehicles and the local county as a for hire limousine-livery. Many limousines carry $1.5 million dollar insurance liability coverage. Certain requirements are necessary for the vehicle to be licensed and registered. The reason being is that no one should pay for a for-hire limousine and be uninsured.

Limousine service can vary in pricing among the industry. Some companies are low rated, some are mediocre, and some are driven by exceptional details- professional company uniforms and highly experienced employees. When it comes to the driver, make sure that the service provider will provide a clean shaved, professionally uniformed driver for the wedding. The last thing anyone needs a driver looking like they were found on the street or the casually dressed driver (casual slacks and a polo shirt). The professional limousine company, with a reputation, will always have a chauffeur in a clean black suit with a pressed white shirt with a dark colored tie. In addition, professional limousine companies always hire experienced professionals. Professional chauffeurs are familiar with routes and alternative routes, even during periods of excessive congestions. The worst thing is to have a driver asking clients for routes or struggling with a portable navigation device which cannot speak for traffic and guides driver in the path of traffic. It is not worth the chance to be late on the most important day.

The beverages allowed with different limousine companies can range from alcoholic to non alcoholic beverages. Alcoholic drinks may be regulated by authorities in certain municipalities. Please check to make sure if any restrictions are in place for alcoholic beverages.

Finally, let us refocus on the vehicles appearance. Make sure to see if the service includes any extras such as, “Just Married” signs, balloons, bowties, red royal wedding carpet, interior decoration, flowers, champagne flutes, wedding march air horns, and the final appearance on the limousine which are customizations.
Now it can be explained how some limousine rentals will cost $45.00 an hour, $85.00 an hour, and $125.00 an hour. All of the added amenities will be reflective in prices. Always check the limousine companies reputation online, and see if the company offers verifiable references. A limousine company which serves Private Aviation clientele, celebrity, and 5 star properties and hotels perhaps has a reputation which has been built by quality service and details.
The best way to get the most for your dollar is by comparing limousine services equally within their class and caliber.
