Whether you are a high school student getting ready for prom, getting married, or just planning a special event, you might be thinking of hiring a limo.
There are usually many quality limousine companies to choose from. But remember, if the price seem to be too good to be true… Then, it usually is.
Always check references and if the company is licensed by the state before you hire.
In most states limousine operators are required to be licensed, carry sufficient liability insurance and undergo annual safety inspections on all their vehicles.
Too often, unlicensed companies are putting passengers unknowingly at risk. Unlicensed drivers may not be properly trained to operate and maintain these specialty vehicles, which poses a threat to any passenger. In addition, illegally run companies most likely don’t have insurance to cover costs in case of an accident.
To find out if the limousine service you plan to use is licensed by the state, visit your state’s website and check what is required. If you do not see the business listed, or you do not see it listed as a limousine company, call and ask about state rules and the company in question.
