Wedding Transportation. What to Ask.
When it comes to ensuring your wedding transportation runs smoothly, hiring professional, reliable and safe wedding transportation is essential. Although limousine service is one of the last wedding vendors hired, Concorde Worldwide suggests reserving your vehicles at least six months in advance. Deciding if you need one limousine, several limo-buses or guest shuttles, there are many logistics involved. It is also important to reserve early especially during May and June which are peak wedding months, graduations and prom season. Of course, September and October are peak times for the fall. However, before you sign anything, ask the limousine company you are considering these critical questions.
What type of vehicles do you offer?
Every limousine company offers different types of vehicles. If the company has an onsite wedding consultant, they help you select which works best for you and your guests.
What is the maximum capacity for each vehicle?
When considering transportation, knowing how many people can fit into each vehicle is always a good idea. Your wedding consultant can logistically suggest the appropriate vehicles and make sure it works with your guest count.
Can I visit your facility to see the vehicles I am considering?
Request to see the limousine or other vehicles you are considering. Don’t take a chance that the ones you reserve from the website are the ones you are getting. After all, you want to avoid any unwelcome surprises on your wedding day.
What amenities are in the vehicles?
Amenities vary from vehicle to vehicle. If you are renting a limousine or a limo-bus, ask if the vehicle is equipped with televisions, satellite radio, DVD player, Bluetooth, and iPod connectivity. In addition, ask about fiber optic and mood lighting, and if there is a console with ice compartments and a bottle holder.
Do you provide a shuttle service for guests?
If you have out-of-town guests, you don’t want them having to navigate an unfamiliar area. Also, offering shuttle service provides peace-of-mind and a safe form of transportation after a late-night wedding.
Do you provide beverages?
It is a good idea to ask what beverages are provided in the vehicle(s) you are renting. Some companies offer complimentary beverages with specific wedding packages. If you have a special request, ask about any additional charges involved.
What are the terms of the agreement?
Before you pay any deposit, know the total cost, cancellation policy and the length of time included in the wedding package. Also, verify if gratuity is included or needs to be given to the chauffeur.
Are the chauffeurs professionally trained?
Safety should always be the number one priority for limo companies. You want to ask if the chauffeurs go through the proper background checks as well as a thorough training program.
What do you recommend for timing?
In order to determine how long you need the services of the limousine company, be prepared to provide pertinent information. For example, the day-of itinerary should include the timing throughout the day and all locations involved. It is important that your chauffeur knows what to expect, therefore during the booking process, provide a detailed schedule and any special requests.
Should I designate a point-person?
In the event the chauffeur needs to contact anyone, provide the name and phone number of an additional individual (besides yourself and spouse).
