Tips to Insure Your Party Bus Isn’t a Party Bust
Imagine this, you are leaving your wedding ceremony, getting ready to head to the reception in style. Outside, there is nice white stretch limo from the limousine service ready to take you to the reception venue. One of the chauffeurs opens the door and lets your party in, you sit down and notice that the interior of this seemingly gorgeous limo is filthy. The cup holders have half finished drinks, the floor has odd stains on it and the at first seemingly clean cut chauffeurs smoking what you can only hope is a cigarette while driving. As you can imagine, this experience would probably detract from the luxury appeal of hiring from a limo rental service. While this may seem like a horror story, this actually happened to me. Below I have compiled some tips to help you choose the best party bus or limo service for your event needs.
Ask Friends and Family for Referrals
It might sound old fashioned but the most tried and true way of ensuring that receive good service is by asking friends and family for recommendations. With the advent of the internet and rating sites should be able to get a full spectrum of the kind of experience to expect from your potential limo service. Another tip is to see how long the business has been in existence. Veteran companies tend to have things more together rather than fledgling companies.
