Choosing the right limo company can be one of the most important task you do when planning for a special event. Usually the way you arrive to an event can set the tone for the event and if you arrive on time, safely, comfortable, and in a good mood then you can rest assured the event is off to a great start.
On the other hand if you arrive late, uncomfortable (bad ride or no air condition), and in a bad mood because of a rude limo driver then you may have a long day/night ahead of you. So selecting the right company for your event is an important task that cannot be ignored. Below we will discuss several things you need to know when choosing the right limousine rental company.
When talking with the different limo companies check to see how often they do Inspections on their vehicles. This maintenance check tells you how seriously they take safety. You want them to put your safety above all else when you are in their care, so having regular inspections is important. You should also visit the business prior to your event to look at the limousine for yourself to see what you and your party will be riding in.
Most limo companies are a part of transportation associations. Find out what associations they belong to and check their standing within that association and see what others have to say about the company you are planning to rent a limousine from. Many of these associations are public entities that are required to release any information that you ask, so do your due diligence.
Every limo owner is required to carry insurance on their vehicle. This should not be personal vehicular insurance that you or I may have on a vehicle, they are required to have commercial vehicular insurance. The minimum liability insurance they should have per car is $750,000. Check your state for the exact minimum insurance required, and then make sure the limousine company you are planning to rent from has the minimum insurance required.
In addition to the insurance, every limousine rental company is required to have a state license to operate their business. Make sure to check with the limo owner to ensure they have the required licenses for their business. You do not want to assume they have the right protection because if the limo gets stopped during the time you are within the vehicle, if they are not properly licensed and insured there is a chance you may be stranded.
Knowing the information is half the battle. Now that you have a better understanding of the things you should know about choosing the right limo company, make sure you apply this information so you can have the best experience possible.
