05 Oct Getting Married? Make Sure to Ask the Limo Company These Questions Before You Sign on the Dotted Line
If you are getting married, you naturally want everything to go as planned on your special day. From your wedding dress and flowers to the catering and music, you have been planning your big day for quite some time and want it to go off without a hitch. This includes your wedding day travel. It is easy to become overwhelmed with figuring out the small details of your wedding limo, so here we have compiled a list of questions to ask your limo service before you sign on that dotted line.
Do your drivers have to go through training?
Quality limo services will have their drivers go through training and be required to meet specific requirements. It is always a good idea to check out your state’s laws, as most require limo drivers to have a chauffeur permit in addition to their regular driver’s license. Planning to travel across state borders during your trip? Your driver must have applicable permits in that state as well.
Will the driver be dressed in formal attire?
Without a doubt, limo drivers should be dressed professionally and appropriately. Feel free to ask if there is a specific dress code the company requires.
Do I have a choice on what vehicle I can hire?
About 60% of limousine companies are small, with fewer than five vehicles. Keep this in mind when you hire a company for your wedding, as they may have other cars hired out on the same day. If you have a specific request, make your wishes known.
How many people can fit in your limos?
You will want to overestimate the amount of space you need in your limo. Wedding dresses can take up a lot of space, after all! As a good rule of thumb, you should add about three extra people to your estimate to ensure there is enough space to relax in luxury.
How do you charge for your services?
Do they charge per mile or per hour? The answer to this question will determine if you use the highway during your trip, or if you can take your time exploring town before you head to the reception.
Do I have to set a route beforehand?
At the bare minimum, you should at least determine pick up and drop off spots and their coordinating times when you sign for your limo.
With these questions in mind, you will be able to confidently choose from plenty of limos for your special day. Get ready to ride in luxury!
