Searching on the Internet for Limo Service? 



Searching for limousine service on the internet can be a risky business filled with a limitless list of internet brokers each claiming that they provide service worldwide.

DON'T BE FOOLED!!

The Truth is,  These websites are reservation brokers; who are merely “middleman” subcontractors.  This practice is widespread on the web and it typically leaves “YOU” the consumer at risk.

How to SPOT an "Internet Limo Broker" and avoid extra charges?

1.

2.

The easiest way to spot a internet broker is to “Search the Directory”
If you “NEED” to fill out your information before you can search your area. -  It’s A Broker

Example:

  • Name
  • Date of service
  • Number of passengers
  • Type of vehicle
  • Estimated rental period

Look Out For The “ 1, 2, 3 Limo Brokers
All this means is that you need to fill out 1 form, 2 forms, and a final 3rd form.
Just to to send an E-mail when all you want is a local phone number!
 

               WHAT A  WASTE OF TIME !!!!

Not to mention the extra dollar you just incurred to those limousine companies.
Its no wonder you NEED to pay more with them to get better service.

Ask yourself why they want this information “BEFORE” you fill out any forms.

These “1, 2, 3 Brokersharm “YOU” the consumer most of all.
Each time you fill out the forms, a lead fee is incurred to the limousine company, “No Matter” whether
or not they get your business. In turn causing these limousine companies to charge” YOU” more just to pay
 for advertising. If you take a moment and think about it, you are not only paying for the charge you incurred
 to the limo company, but also the number of charges accrued that did NOT get that particular companies business.

Limousine Rental tips

HOW TO START LOOKING
First, determine what your needs are, i.e. the type of limousine, desired color, the number of passengers it needs to accommodate, etc.. Then make a list of limousine company names and telephone numbers and call a number of limousine companies to determine the available types and colors of limousines, the vintage of the limousines, associated available features and services and the costs involved. Be sure to write down the information you receive so it will be easier to compare costs and features after the impact of the sales presentation wears off.

WHAT TO ASK
Each limousine rental company will probably offer different prices based on the year, make and features of the limousine and the associated services offered. Some even offer bar or champagne service (usually the cheap stuff at a high price) while others allow you to provide your own beverages. (In some areas, alcoholic beverages are prohibited by law.) Although price is a consideration, a better price does not always mean the best limousine or the most reliable service so if possible it is wise to actually visit the limousine rental company before you decide to rent to actually look at the limousine and and view their operation. I really mean LOOK AT THE LIMOUSINE, you will be renting so there will be no unexpected surprises.

SMART QUESTIONS
Following are a few examples of questions you may want to ask of the limousine rental companies...

How long has the limousine company been in business?

Do they have any recent references or letters of recommendation they can provide?

How many limousines do they have in their fleet?

What types/colors of limousines are available for your specified date?

What year(s) are their limousines?

Do the vehicles have air conditioning/heat that can be controlled from the passenger area?

Do they carry "commercial" liability and medical insurance for their passengers?
(You will want a copy of the "certificate of insurance" when you rent.)

What are the costs? Some have minimum hour requirements while some have a package price for pickup and drop off only. Some also have hourly plus mileage charges. You will have to determine which pricing option best suits your needs.

What is included in the cost? Some charge portal to portal which means that you pay for driving time to and from the limousine rental company to your designated location while other companies charge only from the time the limousine arrives at your location. Some limousine companies also offer extra services, i.e. champagne service, a red carpet rollout, etc. with or without additional cost.

How are the driver's dressed? Some limousine companies have a uniform standard while others do not. If the driver is going to be seen, the appearance of the driver is as important as the appearance of the vehicle.

Is gratuity included in the rental cost? Some include the gratuity in the rental cost, some allow you to set the amount of the gratuity and others automatically tack on gratuity charges ranging from 10% to 20% of the rental.

Are you able to have alcoholic beverages in the vehicle? This may or may not be an important factor to consider.

If you are renting the limousine for a wedding and want to display a "Just Married" sign, can it be attached to the vehicle? If so, is there a cleaning/polishing charge?

BOOKING THE LIMOUSINE
Assuming that you have narrowed the limousine rental company selection down to the one you think you want to book you will want to reserve your limousine. If possible you will want to visit the company to look at their vehicles and specifically at the vehicle you will be renting. You will most likely be required to pay a deposit to reserve the vehicle and you will want to have a "RENTAL CONTRACT" that guarantees that you are going to get what you ordered. The contract should specifically outline the date of service, the arrival time(s) and locations, the color, make, model and year (and license number) of the vehicle, and the costs of the rental as well as cancellation and deposit refund policies. You will also want a copy of their "Certificate of Insurance" to make sure that you and your passengers are covered in case of an accident. Payment by credit card can give you more leverage should something go wrong if the fault of the limousine rental company.
