Make the most of your big night with a prom limo. Why roll up in your mom’s station wagon when you can blow everyone away with a 36 foot Hummer? An incredible variety of vehicles are available to make your prom night unforgettable. We understand that this may be your first time renting a limo, so here are a few suggestions to point you in the right direction.
Book Early – Spring is a busy time for limos. With proms and weddings competing with one another, limousines get snapped up fast. It’s not unusual for a company to have its entire fleet booked during this time of year. You should make your arrangements at least two to three months in advance.
Figure Size – Once you figure out how many people you’re taking to the prom, you can figure out the size of your ride. Prom limousines can hold anywhere from six to forty people so your choice really comes down to your budget and preferences. If you’re trying to save a few bucks, consider renting a large limo and splitting the cost with your friends.
Ask Around – One of the best ways to find a limo is through a trusted referral. This can be grandma or friend down the street. Some of the best people to ask are individuals associated with the prom business. For example, a sales associate at a tuxedo rental shop will likely know of a great prom limo service.
Check Up – Every limousine service should have an operating license. This license is issued by the State and allows a limo company to legally operate. In addition, a reputable company should belong to an association such as the NLA. Finally, check with the better business bureau for past complaints regarding your prospective limousine service.
See the Limo – Check out the limo in person. If the vehicle isn’t available, ask the company to email photos. It’s important to inspect the vehicle and verify the make, model, and amenities inside the limousine.
Ask For A Contract – Make sure you get everything in writing. A contract should include the following:
- Year, make, and model of the prom limo
- Rates, including the gratuity and surcharge
- Deposit and cancellation fees
- Company’s liability in the event of a breakdown or no show
Review Cancellation Policy – If problems arise, you should be able to cancel your reservation. Cancellations are common occurrences for prom limousines so feel free to ask about the policy and get it in writing.
