When and How to Hire Limo

By: sandra hamilton

When thinking about the various trappings of wealth, you probably imagine huge mansions, enormous swimming pools, fancy clothes and, of course, beautiful limousines stocked with expensive alcohol and state-of-the-art electronic gadgets. While limousines were once a luxury enjoyed mainly by the extremely rich, today they're a staple of airport transportation and a favored way to arrive at formals, dances and weddings.
There's a few special events that you should consider using a limo. Taking a limo really spices up the event or evening and makes everything either more fun or more specials (or both!). Here's a few events for when you should use a limo hire service:
&bullProm. Of course! This is already a special night for your son or daughter, go ahead and treat them to a really special time. If several couples' parents go in on the limo hire, the price shouldn't be that bad.
&bullWedding. This is another event. Your princess is going to want this day to be as memorable and special as daddy can afford - consider limo hire!
&bullBachelor or Bachelorette Party. How many crazy guys or girls can you cram into a limo for a wild night out on the town?
&bullCasino night.


There are so many limo hire companies out there that you may not be sure where to start when looking for a limo to hire for your next special event. It is hard to know what to look for as well, since limo hire is not something most of us do everyday.
First you should take special note of how you and your limo hire enquiry are treated when you first make contact with the limo hire companies you are considering. A trustworthy and quality limo hire company will treat all enquires in a professional and helpful way and if you don't feel like you have been treated correctly, you probably haven't. It is also good to remember that some limo hire companies can be kind of snobby and they like to keep to hiring their limos for important business meetings and transporting politicians so if you ring up with an enquiry about hiring a limo for your wedding and are brushed off, the limo hire company has probably done this on purpose because they don't want your business.
Also, even if you have done all of your research and the limo hire company you settle on seems to be just right, make sure you have a complete signed contract with all of the details of hire included so you are covered if the limo hire company backs out or doesn't deliver what is promised in the contract.
Check the limo yourself before traveling in it and see if there is any interior or exterior damage. The last thing you want is to be blamed, and even more so, charged for damage you have not done. Remember that most companies charge if there is excessive rubbish or mess in the limo when you have finished using it for your occasion. It is worth considering taking a plastic bag to place rubbish in at the end of your travel. Drunkenness and bad or abusive behavior can result in the limo company terminating your agreement, even if you may be 50 miles from home. Do not allow any one member of your party to ruin things for you. Try to make your special occasion a time to remember and you will find that a good company will welcome your repeated custom with open arms and maybe even a discount as a valued customer.
