How to Find a Good Limousine service in NJ area

When planning to rent a superb limo service in New Jersey, there are several factors to consider. Here are some tips to help you find an exceptional limousine service that won’t disappoint you.

Research:

Look up the company name with the Better Business Bureau (“BBB”). Certain superb limo services in New Jersey may not be registered with the BBB simply because of the fees. It’s best to avoid the ones listed there because customers have had negative experiences with them.

Ask for reviews and references, and be sure to check them out.

Preparation:

Before contacting the company, have some knowledge of ​​the following:

  • All significant intersections, from the first pickup point to the end.
  • The number of passengers; will determine the size of the limo you need.
  • Pick up time and delivery time.

If it is a wedding and you are unsure of the initial pickup time, please ask for suggestions.

Bookings:

  • Ask about availability for your event/occasion.
  • Deposit amount required.
  • Is it flexible if changes are needed?

Be sure to contact the company whenever there are changes to your hours or location.

Ask about their experience in providing services for your type of event.

Pricing:

Does the company charge by the hour? Sometimes pricing can be an issue; If so, tell them and ask if they will negotiate before switching to a company with much lower rates than most. The old saying goes, “You get what you pay for.”

  • Are the HST and driver’s bonuses included?
  • The tipping percentage? (Tipping rules: 20% is for excellent service, 15% is for average).
  • Do they charge an extra fee for long-distance?
  • What is included in the price? (Red carpet, champagne, drinks.)
  • What is the cost of waiting time fees?
  • Is there a grace period, and how long is it?
  • What is the cost of each additional hour?

Discounts:

  • Is there a discount for reserving more than one vehicle?
  • Are there discounts for weddings out of season or off Saturdays and other occasions?
  • Is there a discount if you book the vehicle(s) for your ceremony?

Vehicle Status:

  • Is the car in good condition?
  • What guarantee does the company give that its limousines are in good condition?

Drivers:

  • Drivers experience.
  • How will the driver dress?

Safety:

Ask if they have commercial insurance. Limousine services charge $200-300 less than other wedding service providers, and they most likely do not have commercial insurance. If any accident happens to you or your guests, there will be no compensation for your injuries.

Ask if they are licensed.

Trust the company and decide not to inspect the limo. They must provide a written guarantee that it will arrive in perfect condition, terms and conditions, and photos of the interior and exterior of your limo. If it is a wedding, you must provide the details of what came in your wedding package and the itinerary to complete.

Make sure you have a signed contract outlining your day’s details.

Ask if they have a contingency plan in the event of failure. Do not believe or trust any Limousine service that tells you they have spare limousines in the event of a breakdown. Depending on seating capacity and year, Limousines cost between $15,000 and $100,000, and no one is spending that kind of money to use them as a spare.
