There are many reasons you might find yourself looking into limousine hire and the truth is most of us end up there as our children get older, the end of school approaches and formal dates loom closer. Even so, it is something you don’t really think about until you need one and when you finally do the prospect of finding a good one for a good price can be a little daunting. I mean, the limousine industry has changed so much in the past few years – especially with the huge range of cars on offer now!
If you are looking to hire a limo in Brisbane then below is a simple, easy guide to make sure you are getting great value for money as well as friendly, reliable service!
Do your research and enquire online
Limo hire can get very busy towards the end of the year so make sure you get in early! Whether you are looking for a one way ride, a few hours or even a whole day, enquiring on price is imperative as it tends to become more affordable the longer you have it (and surprisingly can almost be cheaper then a taxi for big groups)!
Making an enquiry is free too so jump online and simply ask what is available and the best price that is on offer. You can then easily compare prices between companies and try to negotiate the best price as many will try to beat their competitors!
No doubt you’ve seen all sorts of limousines cruising the street but if you search wide enough you will find some incredibly ‘out there’ rides on offer! Think: pink stretch Hummer, bright red stretch limo’s, different themed cars and even limos with the top down! If you’re thinking of booking a limo for a particular function or something with a theme why not ask about what different types of transport are available for hire?
Check for safety standards
This is always very important – especially if children are involved. Always crosscheck with an operator or the driver if car seats need to be fitted, what the passenger limit is and, if there are no adults in the limo, that the driver can be notified of any “seatbelt un-fastening”.
Look for testimonials or reviews
This is something I recommend you do before using any service because it may determine the kind of experience you have with the company. If they have a Facebook page, or ratings on Google, check them out and see what others say about the service, cost, and quality. It may save disappointment later on (or excite you even more)!
