This day and age, there are a
good many reasons for one to consider hiring a limousine to cover the
transport of you and a group of friends or colleagues. Perhaps it
could be for the wedding of your best friend, or maybe you have a
fundraiser and need transport from a banquet hall to an event. You
might just be due for a big night out on the town, and would like to
fulfill your innate desire to be pampered while you're out with your
closest friends having the time of your lives... Whatever
the reason is, there are things related to limousine service that can
save money, time, and headache which you should be aware of before you
begin your search for the best company in your respective area.
First in the line of your
consideration, is the size of the vehicle with relation to the size of
your group and the respective size of the folks in your group as well.
Most limousine companies adhere to DoT regulations with regard to seat
size and corresponding capacities of their vehicles. In most areas 14
inches is considered a sufficient seat. Well, the reality of the
matter is that not all frames are built the same, and some people may
require a little more room to facilitate comfort. After all, what good
is hiring a limousine to be uncomfortable? Right. That's what we
thought too. You're here because you're seeking the ultimate in
comfort accommodation! So, keep in mind that you may want to consider
a vehicle with a capacity that is advertised a bit larger than the
actual number of people in your party. The cost increase to upgrade
the size of the vehicle to comfortably accommodate your guests will be
negligible with respect to what you're already paying. It's one of
those tradeoffs in life... If you're already spending this
much, why not go a little further to insure everyone's ultimate
comfort? Especially if your entire group is chipping in on the cost.
The difference then truly becomes not even worthy of mentioning.
To save time, you're going to
want to know that just about all Limo companies ask the same line of
questions upon your first contact with them. They'll need to know the
date of required service, which area the pick-up is going to be, and
how many passengers you'll be hosting. If you get these questions
answered ahead of time, your call with go a lot smoother and quicker.
Before you book, in order to
insure that there are no additional costs, you're going to want to
know what their policies entail. Do they have any hidden fees which
fall into place on the day of your run? What are the policies relating
to smoking? What happens if my group makes a big mess? Do they charge
extra for itinerary changes? Do they charge by the mile, or charge
extra for additional stops? The answers to these questions will insure
that you don't incur any additional charges after your run. If costing
extra money can easily be avoided, you'll obviously want to do all you
can to insure that you pay the lowest possible amount for your trip.
