Limo Hire Melbourne

We’ve made a list of the top items that we think clients look for when hiring a limousine. These are not in any particular order – see if you agree.

  • Availability. It’s always better to book ahead, especially when planning for your wedding, however, it doesn’t mean that the limo won’t be available on short notice for any event. Of course you would like to have your limo available for your special event, regardless of whether you need your limousine on a Public Holiday, week day or week-end. Some models of limousines are more popular than others.
  • Affordability. Some people think that only the wealthy can afford a limousine. We know that cost is a major factor for some.   When budgeting for a limousine, take into account the vehicle type, the style of the limo, the year and model of the vehicle and how many people you need to seat comfortably. Most limousine companies charge an hourly rate but they also have limo packages for weddings and other special events. They usually have minimum hourly rates on Friday and Saturday nights.
  • Value. It does get a bit tricky because not all limousine services are the same. If you are going to focus on price, then you will run the risk of being disappointed. If you’re looking for value for money, then do your research taking into account the company’s experiences, vehicle make and model, seating capacity, standard inclusions and extras. It is usually more cost effective to hire a limousine than to hire several sedans to get from A to B.
  • Luxury. If you were looking for a wedding limousine you’d probably want to be in a limo that is not only comfortable but also can cater with refreshments and food. For special events and weddings, you may want, and expect, to be treated to red carpet VIP service. Don’t forget to ask the limo company what they provide as ‘standard’ in their service. Love Limo provides refreshments for all event bookings and catering is available at an affordable price.
  • Safety. Legitimate limousine companies are covered by insurance and their chauffeurs are checked that they are properly licensed. Vehicle safety is paramount – you are entrusting yourself and your friends and family to an unknown. Ensure the limo company is licensed and regularly maintains its vehicles.

  • Executive Limousine. Sometimes the cost of hiring a limousine for business purposes where you can hold your meeting in the limousine can be more cost effective than hiring a conference room or a hotel room. Check what facilities are available as standard, and if you have a special requirement it’s best to ask at the outset. The more luxurious limousines will have DVD, ipod, bar, TV screens, climate controlled air-conditioning and a chauffeur who is discreet.
  • Hidden Charges. You don’t want any hidden charges. That’s why when looking at hiring a limo, make sure you ask the right questions. Always ask what is included as standard in a limo hire and what additional costs may be incurred. This post on unexpected wedding costs may be of interest to you.
  • Fast Quotes for Limo Hire. You want to have a quote as quickly as possible – preferably the same day but most certainly within 24 hours. If completing a form on line, ensure that you fill in all the details so that there is no misunderstanding. Usually you would get a return call to confirm your requirements and discuss options available. Always ask for a written quote if you are considering hiring a limousine.
