Homecoming dances are coming up and we are getting a ton of email requests for limos and party buses here in phoenix. This is the time of year when I try to give some good advice to students and parents looking for prices for transportation to the school dance.
- Call 7-10 limousine companies in the phoenix metro area.
- Look for online reviews, previous clients are the best way to judge a company you are considering.
- When calling don’t focus on the price, ask about the company how long have they been in business, what year are the vehicles in their fleet, can you go down and take a look at the vehicles, etc…
- Use a credit card to make your reservation! If you don’t, ask yourself what your going to do if the company does not show up?
- Most reputable companies will have you sign a contract or terms and conditions agreement. This is good for both you and the company you have chosen. Everything should be in writing so you are all on the same page.
After you have made your calls and checked online reviews you should be down to a couple of companies. Ask yourself if the prices you had been getting and the pricing of the companies you have left to choose from are in line with the others. When you make these calls you should have a decent idea of the ballpark price.
If a price seems too good to be true (RED FLAG) If the company won’t let you see the vehicle (RED FLAG) If the company requires cash (RED FLAG) If you see a company with no reviews on line (RED FLAG)
Take you time and be diligent in your search because if you aren’t, or simply choose the cheapest limo company you may be disappointed when they don’t show up, or show up late, or show up in an old junky limo or party bus, or the driver shows up in a polo shirt and jeans, or any number of things. It happens more often than you may think and you will be the one who has to explain what happened to those kids and their parents.
