Nothing adds class to your transportation like hiring limo services to shuttle you to and from an event. Even people in areas where limousines are commonplace often wonder, "what's going on?" when they see one pass them on the highway. That's because no one hires a stretch to go to work in the morning (well, anywhere but L.A. and NYC) or to take them to their kid's t-ball game. When you see a limousine, you know something special is happening. If you want to bring that special sense to an event you're headed to, here are some of the traits you should demand out of the company.
A limousine is not just a limousine. There are high quality, modern models and then there are relics from the 70s. While the standard car hasn't changed a great deal over the years, there's no reason to settle for a limo services company that can't be bothered to provide new cars to their customers. That doesn't mean they need to be fresh off the manufacturing line, but they shouldn't be decorated with styles that were last popular during the Regan administration. If you're going to go all out and hire a car like this, you should make sure that it makes the right impression.
Limo services are only as good as the drivers they provide. A good chauffeur should be comparable to a concierge at a fancy hotel. They should not just be some guy the company hired to sit behind the wheel and take directions from the client. In fact, if a driver needs to ask you for directions, you've probably made a mistake and you have every right to complain. That doesn't mean you may not have to tell them the best way to get into a complicated parking situation or where to drop you off specifically, but you shouldn't need to tell them how to get around town. With today's advent of GPS systems and online maps, there's even less of an excuse for driver incompetence.
Look into finding limo services that provide that little something extra for their clients. It can make all the difference between a nice night out and a spectacular one. It can make the difference between seeing that a client gets the transportation they deserve and making the kind of impression that can translate into doing business. The best way to find out what a company really provides is to talk to others who have used the company in the past.
