Limousines: What to Look for

by Classic Limos,

Every bride wants the perfect mode of transportation for her wedding day, a professional chauffeur and elegant service at an affordable price. However, over 75% of the vintage limo companies in California are operating without a license or valid insurance, pedaling fake Rolls-Royces or offering entry level Packards as “American Rolls Royces.” It is fraud to suggest that they are the real thing. The industry knows that most brides don’t inspect their wedding vehicle before booking it, so be sure you do and know what to look for. Don’t just look at a photo either - many cars don’t look nearly as nice in person. A vintage car should always be mechanically safe and sound. Be sure the air conditioning works and that the vehicle is clean and in good condition. Select a company with a solid reputation; one that cares about its vehicle collection, chauffeur service, and has an “A” rating with the Better Business Bureau.

Being late is the number one complaint against limo companies. Hire a company only if they have an “On Time Guarantee”. Be sure they will provide you with the name and mobile number of your driver in advance, including the exact time he’ll be arriving to pick you up.

Finally, ask about an “all inclusive” price quote. Hidden or phony fees can include sales tax, refueling charges, license fees, or PUC fees. Be aware of how the company charges for overtime as well. Avoid those that have overtime surcharge rates or round everything to the nearest hour.

Remember, personal service and an elegant vehicle will be the crowning touch to your wedding day. Plan ahead and choose wisely for the perfect vintage car service.
