DONT MAKE A PRECIOUS MISTAKE!
Most people wouldn't hire the cheapest surgeon, or stay at the cheapest hotel, yet, 90% of prom goers shop for a limo service in this fashion.
The biggest mistake you can make when hiring a limo service for your prom is basing your decision solely on the "best price". This translates into a large risk for you. Getting the "best price" is like choosing a surgeon who offers the least expensive surgery -- a foolhardy choice.
"Cheap Prom Limo" shopping risks
RISKS YOU ACCEPT WHEN SHOPPING FOR THE "Cheap Prom Limo"
Your limousine does not arrive on time.
You are late for your prom and miss dinner.
A 1989 limousine rusting at the seams arrives at your door when you were expecting at a 2007 model. Instead of being lavished in luxury, you are embarrassed amongst all your schoolmates.
Your limousine chauffeur exercises poor customer service with your best friend and a verbal altercation ensues. The night ends early.
Your limo breaks down on the freeway during transport to the prom. You and your friends miss the prom. Your prom tickets cost you $800, yet, you wanted to save $30 on limo service.
Your limousine service gets into an accident and does not have proper insurance to cover the damages involved in your injuries.
- The limo never shows up. Turns out the limo company got a better paying prom reservation and does not ethically operate.
Smart Prom Limousine Rental Choices
WHEN RENTING FOR PROM EMPLOY THESE GUIDELINES!
Ask to See The Company's Limos
Check out the vehicle you plan on renting for prom. Some companies utilize older limo fleets You don't want to be surprised on your big prom day when a 1983 limo shows up at your home when you were expecting a year 2007 model! Many Limos.com advertisers have pictures of their vehicles posted online with their company listings.
Get A Signed Contract For Your Prom!
Reliable and professional service will be more than happy to provide you with a signed-contract for service. Companies who can't supply a contract may not be confident in their ability to fulfill.
Ask About Limo Insurance And Permits
All limousines are required to carry commercial livery insurance and proper permits. Unfortunately, the Yellow Pages and advertising services such as ours do not require the same in order to advertise. To protect yourself from "gypsy companies", ask for proof of these with your signed contract.
Ask About Limo Industry Assocations
Companies who belong to industry associations usually must abide by special insurance regulations and service rules. Reputable associations such as the National Limousine Association (NLA) and the local livery association are good indications that your service provider does their due diligence. The Better Business Bureau also is a good research source- complaints about limousine services are not far behind auto mechanics complaints.
Limo Got Into An Accident!
Don't be the client which receives the "The Limo Got Into An Accident" or "We don't have your reservation" story. Cover yourself by getting a signed contract and by shopping smart. Shopping on price alone is dangerous. Some unethical operators do not hesitate to drop a reservation to pickup a better paying fare.
