10 Questions You Should Always Ask Your Limo Company

This article was submitted by Echo Limousine. They are the best-rated limo service company in Chicago, providing reliable and dependable car service with a wide range of customized packages suited to any needs and events. Thank you for your submission.

Planning the details of a big event is both exciting and stressful. Catering, decorations, and attire - all must be carefully considered and determined well in advance. And then there is the matter of transportation - in a stylish limo.  Unless you are an event planner by trade, it may be difficult to pull all of these pieces together into a seamless, classy event.  So we compiled this list of 10 basic questions for you to ask your limo company - before putting money down!

1. What training requirements do you have for your drivers?

Most states require limo drivers (their official title is chauffeur), to have a chauffeur's license or permit, in addition to their regular class D driver's license.  If your limo ride will take you across state borders, the chauffeur is required to have a chauffeur's permit in that state, as well.

2. What attire will the driver arrive in?

Many companies require a certain dress code for the chauffeur, as they will be publicly visible when they arrive at your event. . All of our Chicago Limousine drivers are professional and dressed appropriately. There are, unfortunately, all too many horror stories of casually dressed, disgruntled, or even intoxicated limo drivers who have turned up to try to escort a shocked wedding party to their reception.

3. What Models do you offer?

There are many different kinds of limousines - from the basic stretch limousine to an SUV-based model.  Inquire about the make, model, and year of the limos offered by the company.

4. Can I request a certain model?

Often, a limousine company will offer several different models under the same price blanket or passenger capacity. If you have a preference, be sure to specify which model you would prefer to use.

5. How many people can I bring with me?

Limousines come with a predetermined passenger capacity.
