Avoid making critical mistakes which can turn your limousine event into a nightmare! Wedding horror stories, limo shopping pitfalls and more... 

Looking for the "Best Price" ?

Don't make a limo shopping mistake! The biggest mistake you could make when shopping for a limousine service is shopping on PRICE. Big mistake! In the limousine industry, there are many variances of quality and price. All too often, a cheaper price translates into larger risk for you. Most consumers would not choose a restaurant or hotel based on price, yet people shop for a limo service this way and expect 5-star quality. If you shop for a limousine service based on price alone, you will likely be frustrated and disappointed with your limousine experience. Old vehicles, poor service, unprofessional chauffeurs with poor hygiene, dangerous vehicles, and under-insured services are all possible results of a "best price" limo shopping experience.

  • Ask to see the company's limos. Some companies will use old vehicles.
  • Ask about Insurance and Permits. All Limousines are required to carry commercial insurance and proper permits.
  • Ask about Industry Associations. Companies who belong to industry associations usually must abide by special insurance regulations and service rules.
  • Ask about limousine Rental Policies. In general, the bigger the limo and the newer, the more expensive it will be to rent. All or Some may be included in the price:
    • Standard chauffeur gratuity is 15-20%
    • Champagne
    • Nonalcoholic beverages
    • Red carpet roll out
