What to Ask a Limo Service Company
Limousine services certainly come at a cost. Most average earners look to limo service companies on special occasions such as weddings, graduations, or anniversaries. But whether or not you use town car services regularly, you want to take care to find a reputable company with a history of excellent service. Indeed, the basic price of town car service does not necessarily determine the level of quality, condition of vehicles, or ability of the driver. So what should you ask a town car service company?
What kind of experience do they have?
Not only are you going to be interested in how long a company has been providing limo services, but you also want to know if they have experience with your type of event. Try to get some information about how long they have been in the business, as older companies are likely to have more experience. In addition, talk to them about the types of services they provide and whether they can accommodate your needs for your special event.
How are they licensed?
Companies that provide limousine or town car service should also be licensed appropriately. Depending on your province of residence, these license requirements may differ and you will want to make sure that they are licensed appropriately. Without proper licenses, your town car and driver may not be properly insured and you may ultimately be libel for any accidents or mishaps.
Do they have any professional affiliations?
Membership in professional affiliations such as The National Limousine Association or the Canadian Limousine Association can offer piece of mind to potential customers. These affiliations require that town car and limousine companies meet a minimum standard of service.
Can they offer references?
Speaking to past customers about their experience with a particular company can help you choose a reputable town car service. A quick background check makes it easier to avoid future problems while also giving you a better idea of what to expect from your driver and car. Furthermore, don’t be afraid to speak to friends and family members about which limousine services they have used and their experience with these companies.
What kind of vehicles do they have?
Next, you will want to speak to car service companies about the types of vehicles they have and about the possibility of seeing the vehicles in advance. If you’re arrange for town car service for a trip to the airport or to arrange for a night out with friends you may not be as concerned about the condition of the car than if you’re seeking services for your wedding or graduation. Regardless, companies should at the very least be able to provide you with some photos of cars, and in many cases you will be able to inspect the vehicle in advance. In addition, you can get information about what fleet vehicles they use, especially if you are interested in particular brand of car.
How much does it cost?
Finally, your budget is important, and because renting a limousine or town car can be expensive, you will want to get some quotes. As mentioned, the cost of service is not always indicative of quality, so don’t be afraid to choose a cheaper town car if all your research indicates they are a reputable company.
