How to Book a Limo

 In Chicago, Events

While all of us have different ideas of what a “perfect” night might entail, there is no question that all of us believe that such a night is free of any hitches, issues and problems that could put a damper on the evening.

For example, if you have rented a limo to carry you and your friends out on that special event, then you don’t want the evening ruined because everyone is cramped in a smaller space than you were told. Perhaps the liquid refreshment is not chilled or that the driver informs you that he or she has no clue as to where your destination is. While the event may not be ruined, it’s certainly not going to be the perfect experience that you imagined.

When it comes to renting a limo, you can’t take everything for granted. So here are a few tips to help you insure that at least this part of your night goes as smoothly as possible. By doing just a little bit of work in advance, you can help make your limo rental a big success.

Get the Best Limo Rental Company

Seems simple enough, but many people do not bother to take a few moments to research the limo companies in their community. You’ll want to check out their services, references and prices in order to make the best informed selection as to which limo company to choose. Once you have done the research, then selecting the right limo company is a breeze.

Book the Right Limousine

Booking the appropriate limo for you special night out means more than just telling the limo company how many you have in your party, you will need to tell them what type of “party” it’s going to be. Is this for the prom, a bachelor or bachelorette party, a wedding party, a business endeavor or what? The limo company will prepare the vehicle for the type of demands it will need, so be sure to be specific about what type of celebration this will be.

When in Doubt, Size Up

A limo company responds to the demands that you make upon them. For example, if your party consists of 10 people and that is the maximum number for a particular limo, then you may want to size up the vehicle. Remember that 10 full size adults take up more space than 10 teenagers. Plus, you will want a little extra room for purses, bags or even your clothing or costumes depending on the type of get-together you are heading. So be sure the limo has the size you need so that everyone is comfortable.

Write Down the Details and then Ask for Them

When planning your limo event, be sure to write down everything you want included and then ask for it to be provided, If the limo company offers a package that includes many of the items you want, be sure to go over them one by one just to make sure that they will be included. Plus, to insure that the trip goes smoothly, make sure you have a map to the location or locations you want to go and you can hand a copy to the driver or have the limo company provide the driver with the locations so that everyone is on the same page.
