17 Oct HOW TO AVOID THE TOP 5 LIMO SERVICE NIGHTMARES
BROOKLYN LIMO DISASTERS
What’s the difference between using public transportation, taxi or a Brooklyn limo to get around the city? Limo service should be reliable, glamorous and an all-star experience. Things don’t always go as planned, and it’s a fact that not every company will meet, let alone beat, your expectations. Learn how you can avoid experiencing the top 8 luxury transportation nightmares before your next big meeting or date night:
1. YOUR LIMO DOESN’T SHOW UP
This disaster has to be among the worst, especially if you’re about to meet a potential client or head to a job interview. Don’t let yourself be put in a position where you’re trying desperately to reach the limo company and just can’t seem to get a real human to answer the phone. One quick, easy and fairly reliable way to identify whether your company is committed to great customer service is just to call. Are their customer service representatives quick to answer and eager to help? Never rent with a company who rarely checks their voicemail!
2. YOUR LIMO IS LATE
You’ve splurged on dinner reservations at local Italian restaurant al di la and tickets to the Net’s game at the Barclays Center. Your girl is all dressed up and the limo is late. You need to pick between dinner or the show because there just isn’t time for both. Don’t ever be in a position where you could blow your big date, flight or sales call just because the limo couldn’t be on time! When you’re making reservations don’t hesitate to ask the Brooklyn limo company if they will be on time, and how they plan to make that happen.
3. A LIMO FROM THE 1980’S PICKS YOU UP
You pull up to the airport in a limo that’s covered with rust spots. It’s been in service since, well, since you were in college. This isn’t what you’d envisioned, but you’re frankly lucky it didn’t break down. Unless you’re after a luxury vintage vehicle, you deserve a car that’s no more than 3 or 4 years old! Make sure your reservation includes info on what year the car was manufactured.
4. YOUR CHAUFFEUR IS UNPROFESSIONAL
Cabbies in the big city are known for their sassy attitudes and often questionable professionalism. Not the same experience you were hoping for when you rented a New York limo, right? Unprofessional Chauffeurs can ruin your night out, but they can be a lot more detrimental when you’re traveling for business. Imagine if your most important client was picked up by a rude driver with bad hygiene. Make sure your provider fields employees who are trained in customer service, no exceptions!
5. YOUR LIMO COMPANY IS UNDERINSURED
It’s the worst case scenario imaginable. While most Chauffeurs are highly experienced and trained, accidents occasionally happen to even the best defensive drivers. You never want to be in the position where you’ve suffered an injury in an accident and then find out that your limo company’s insurance won’t cover the help you need. Ask ahead of time about their insurance, and whether they’re compliant with all city and state requirements for limousine companies. They should never be hesitant to share their insurance information with clients!
