Whether you are up for a family event, a party or night out with your friends, an airport ride, or a corporate meeting, if you are hiring a limousine service, you’ll want to make sure that the service meets, or ideally exceeds your expectations. The very fact that you are hiring a limousine service means that you are looking for comfort, security, and a five-star service. So, make sure you choose a company that provides all that you need. While you are selecting a limo company, you need to ask companies various questions besides just the cost.
So, here are a few questions to ask to the limo companies before you hire one.
- Do you use your own limos?
These days there is a growing trend of web sites and various apps that are basically just marketing the services of limo companies. If you hire services from those marketing companies, there will likely be a commission added to your quote to pay those marketers. So, do not forget to ask the companies if they own their own limo; you’ll likely pay less.
- What does your fleet look like?
Many people, particularly the first timers are unaware of the varieties of vehicles a good limo service can offer. There are options from classic stretch limos to SUVs, high end luxury town cars and other customized vehicles that suit various requirements of hirers. So, do not hesitate to ask. Ask and make sure that the company has the right ride that best suits your needs.
- What kind of services do you offer?
Of course, the best companies provide a wide range of fleet to meet extensive needs of their customers. Whether you are looking for wedding limos, limos for airports, for corporate events, or for parties and night outs, make sure that the company is experienced in performing the logistics needed for your event. There’re some distinctive guidelines and details associated with each of the services offered. Only experienced companies know how to secrete the details to help you make most out of your ride.
- How do you ensure my safety?
The first-rate limousine companies have a variety of safety precautions for their customers. There is an abundance of guidelines that are required to ensure that your ride is safe. From the insurance and commercial liability to the overall screening of drivers and vehicles, you need to make sure that the company puts your safety first.
- Are your cars well-maintained?
It might sound obvious, but taking care of the cars is expensive, and smaller struggling companies may try to cut off their costs in that area. So, before you hire a limo company, do not hesitate to inquire about their comprehensive maintenance program. Ask if they have a comprehensive plan ensuring thorough upkeep and repairs for the vehicles.
- Are you chauffeurs trained?
Even after hiring highly qualified and licensed chauffeurs, a diligent company never stops training its employees. Make sure the limo company recognizes the value of hiring and developing employees competent enough to deliver a quality service. They must be trained for defensive driving to confidentiality and beyond, for delivering quality service to the valued customers.
- How long have you been in the business?
Companies that have operated for a comparatively longer period of time can give in-depth attention to the details that will provide you a first-rate service. It requires the company to understand the finer points of providing service excellence to offer you preeminent services, which can only be gained through experience.
So, feel free to ask. It’s for your own good!
Hire a reliable company that exceeds your expectation.
